The Cocklebur Blog - The Two Faces of Cindy Wilson (3361 words)
Wilson said she was attempting to "put together" a partnership for an alternative development that wouldn't require a sewer line or the closure of Hampton Road.
Wilson has consistently been accused by her fellow council members and others of having a "conflict of interest" in her efforts to stop the sewer line as a council member while she stands to inherit 27 acres on the creek from her mother, Mary.
Wilson has a very inflexible view of what is "right" or "appropriate," and she is sometimes given to conspiracy theories to explain those who disagree with her.
Triathlete Cindy Wilson: 2004 Danskin Women's Triathlon (1788 words)
Cindy achieved an accomplishment that even I could not have imagined in such a short period of time—she is the real deal—a female triathlete with passion and intensity yet an incredible supportive sensitivity to all her female competitors at the 2004 Danskin…hold on…you’re in for quite a journey…
Cindy then admitted she was very scared at first because she had not competed in so long, but it was something she was driven to do “for her” before anyone else.
Cindy has realized that she is now a “living example of what a person can do.” She has also reflected on what it would have been like for her to go the other way—to admit failure to control her own behaviors and have a gastric bypass surgery.
