Do y'all know he promised the land for the Meadows to Abingdon only if they would pay for the road to his grocery store/land? We as taxpayers are forced to fund this.

He's a nice guy but all the backdoor politics are disgusting. Half of the people running for town council are his cronies. How do you think Quetsch and Webb paid for those billboards? Be smart when you vote, please. Enough handshake politics.

Hey, VAbornandraised from Cary North Carolina - joke?
It might be best if you would at least read the paper (as poor as itís written) or maybe attend a few public meetings so that you could be RIGHT about the allegations that you make. You are so wrong!!! The lesson here is to work on yourself first and make some improvements before you start on someone else, especially when that someone else has been very successful and has given more donations and $$$ than most will ever have. Use your time to improve yourself and better things will come your way. Get yourself back in school!!!

Amen and Amen, VAbornandraised, we all know what Steve Smith has done for Southwest Virginia and East Tennessee and the thousands of jobs he has created. The new Food City in Abingdon will be their flag ship of stores since the home office located there, I can't wait. Would not surprise me if the ball fields are not named after him.

If you took all of the donations food city has made and subtracted all of the goverment grants and tax breaks it has recieved would you have a negative or positive number?

He made some really valid points that have a basis in truth, but you come back with a ďjealousyĒ accusation, like some high school girl. Youíre amazing.

Please do be smart with your vote, vote for progress and against the elite and entitled who take all and give nothing. Smith gave property worth millions, Moore asked for the town to buy property to make him worth more millions......so Please Do Be Smart With Your Vote. Smith is the only rich man in the County who has given back $$$ to the community. Moore ran HUB into the ground.
