Tell me there isn't nepotism in Taney County Politics.

Judges son doesn't live in the district he will represent but is voted in anyway (Williams)

Judges brother has a hard time formulating clear vision/ sentences and will now represent us in Jefferson City (Justus)

Current position holder endorses clerical worker who has no idea how to invest tax money to help with budgetary deficit we are in (Smith)

Current Commissioner only gets 30% of the vote and wins due to too many entries - including 2 of his own cousins.(Strahan)

The Sheriffs solution to the problems of the county is an APP for your phone?? Going door to door with uniforms and guns in your hand - intimidating folks. And a few busts made right before election but what about the 3 years before that and the 3 years to come?-(Russell)

We will NEVER get out of this entitled nepotistic attitude in politics unless we get some fresh blood in.

What are YOU going to run for in 2014? Time to be out with the old for sure!

1-judges son has been covered by the election officals. your arguement is invalid.

2-judges brother-he WON the election. your argument is invalid

3-how do you know? smith has worked for the county in that department for several years.

4-current commissioner getting 30% of votes-was that the majority vote? if so, your argument is invalid

5-stop whinning about your drinking buddy edmonds losing the election. it was bad enough he even ran.

6-my suggestion to you is to either move, stop complaining or run for an office yourself.

7-have a great weekend. the weather is supposed to be beautiful. cheers

Questions on your points?

#1 - who is going to make sure that is enforced?
#2 - have you heard that guy speak - yes he won - but HOW?
#5 - what makes you say this Robert is "drinking buddies" with Edmonds?

It is one thing to not agree with someones politics, but have you ever met Edmonds? Do you personally know him?

You may want to Google that word, Robert. It isn't nepotism if they are elected by a majority and not appointed or hired by a relative.

It is simple we have a one party system rooted in east taney. They change the line to keep themselves in. This is called government by criminal enterprise. Oh well lets all go over piverals house for a nude show...
