yeah, thats right John Gentry let this county lose Woods Memorial Hospital and our ambulance service. He needs to be gone. He can't even control his own home life or employees so how can he run this county.

It is pretty sad at the personal attack against John Gentry. He has led a life that should be admired. He had nothing to do with losing the hospital. For your information, the county did not actually own it. All the county did was loan them money on it, Also for your information, the county received millions for it and continue to earn taxes on it without investing any money other than loans that were paid back. You need to get your facts straight and get a life wildchild

County Mayor John Gentry should be held responsible for all the money that was wasted when they expanded the runway at the airport then had to redo it when pilots found it unsafe because of a dip in the runway.

Charley,
if the county did not own or have some type of investment in the hospital, then wht did the county commissioner have to vote on the sell of woods mem. and why was it that the ceo at that tome have to report to Mr. Gentry on a monthly basis.Also the county assigned Committees to review who purchased the hospital and had to vote on all the money that was made from the sale. You can say what you want but the people of etowah and engle wood got a big screwing. i do live with in McMinn County and i keep up.

I have to support Tracey. Every thing that goes on at the county landfill is not up parr. Gentry thinks everything is fine. Sometimes we need more actions than just a prayer.

Well he was the owner of the First Internet Service in McMinn County! Computerized Controls Concepts, Inc., back when the Internet was just getting started nation wide. Those were the good days!

If you did your homework, you would know that McMinn County is the ONLY County in the State of Tennessee that is not in debt. This tells me that John Gentry and his employees are doing a great job. To attack Johns personal life is just wrong and you should not speak untill you know what you are talking about, I'm sure your family leads a perfect life. Just remember playing dirty gets you nowhere in life! I hope John gets re-elected and I thank him for the wonderful job he is doing, Keep up the good work!

There has been more jobs lost in the United States in the past two years then there are people in McMinn County. All jobs that have been lost are due to the poor economy not due to our County Mayor. Are you going to try to blame John for all the lost jobs over the United States?

I realize that John has some to do with the lanfill, but doesn't the commissioners have some say?

I haven't decided who I am going to vote for yet, but all the research that I have done shows John Gentry to be the best for the job. It just doesn't seem right to judge someone over one case, especially the ladnfill. There should be more important things to judge someone on.

I guess the landfill or ladnfill as you call it is just a small issue like the airport, woods, county jail expansion, county ambulance service, and other jobs lost. You dont know what you are talking about. If the county gave a drug test at the landfill by a independant dr most of the employees would be gone. Mary jane cigs in desk drawers liquior under the sink and I can go on. Then they fire someone who honestly did there job over a druggies write up to sound off. Yes, they have problems. I can mention more......

I am sure that if you had the true facts other than just hear say then you would have your answer. No matter what anyone does right the only things people focus on is the negative. I don't think our mayor picks on people nor does he treat people unfairly. He has done a great job and will continue to do a great job with or without your support and seriously the airport and jail issues has to do with a number of people and other problems. Again untill you have true facts you do not have the right to judge people. He is an elected official who has done a wonderful job and most people who know him love him. You must not know him that well!
