<quoted text>Jm and greg both just laughed when I ask about who the group were supporting Jason is running around all over having people meet him behind buildings and talking like he has support from people that don't think that's funny and JM making calls to places far from town for himself so he doesn't have to go out and work for votes and greg isn't running in may or nov so he doesn't care at all and john p has eubanks doing all the work he just should have worked for the last three years .
Who else is Greg supporting besides JM and Collins, then ?

I wish we had more politicians like Troy Hampton was. I remember how he would help anybody he could. It didn't matter who u were or if you had money. He was the real deal. I hope he is enjoying his retirement. I heard he had been sick but is doing better. Wilbur seemed to have been genuine too. Haven't seem him lately. I hope he is having good retirement too. I just worry about my grandchildren and their future... Politicians are going to have to think about the future and what is best for our county and not about social status and lining their pockets.

Bribery is the offering of something which is most often money but can also be goods or services in order to gain an unfair advantage. Common advantages can be to sway a person’s opinion, action, or decision, reduce amounts fees collected, speed up a government grants, or change outcomes of legal processes.

Extortion is threatening or inflicting harm to a person, their reputation, or their property in order to unjustly obtain money, actions, services, or other goods from that person. Blackmail is a form of extortion.

Embezzlement is the illegal taking or appropriation of money or property that has been entrusted to a person but is actually owned by another. In political terms this is called graft which is when a political office holder unlawfully uses public funds for personal purposes.

Nepotism is the practice or inclination to favor a group or person who is a relative when giving promotions, jobs, raises, and other benefits to employees. This is often based on the concept of familism which is believing that a person must always respect and favor family in all situations including those pertaining to politics and business. This leads some political officials to give privileges and positions of authority to relatives based on relationships and regardless of their actual abilities.

Patronage systems consist of the granting favors, contracts, or appointments to positions by a local public office holder or candidate for a political office in return for political support. Many times patronage is used to gain support and votes in elections or in passing legislation. Patronage systems disregard the formal rules of a local government and use personal instead of formalized channels to gain an advantage.

Yes, that's what he said at the Fiscal Court meeting and the others did agree with him. Our jailer Mary Hammons was in agreement with the Fiscal Court, I talked with her over the phone. Our Sheriff John Picard stated in the Mountain Advocate he was in agreement also.

Fiscal Court Members
J.M. Hall.
Jerry Rabbit Cox.
Carson Gilbert.
Keith Abner.
Pat McDonald.
Giulio Cima.

They all deserve to be voted out of office.

Limbertwig, if you vote against the first person and the last person you posted, you won't have to worry about the ones in the middle.

I attended two Fiscal Court Meetings and brought the Jailtracker issue up, I was there and heard what they said, they were all in agreement and said the same thing. Jerry Rabbit Cox said his name was on the Jailtracker and he wanted it removed, now you know why we cant see the prior arrest records anymore. I talked with J.M. Hall and Mary Hammons several different times over the telephone. I called the Jail and a male employee said he knew someone he would send to my home to talk to me and believe me it wasn't said nicely, I replied send them. They all should be voted out of office.
