Just wondering if anyone has heard who might run for Mayor this month. This is the time to throw your names in the hat for Mayor and City Council.

Wish some decent people would come out and run for office so we could get rid of these same old losers. This town is a joke because of the last several administrations.The explosion didnt ruin this town , the people in charge have ruined it. A competent administration would have been able to rebuild the town, instead of helping it go down the tubes.

Need a full time mayor also, one who is retired or something, so they could stay at city hall and actually be there and take care of business and actively seek out businesses to bring to town , and do enough research to provide the demographics needed to woo businesses in here. To spend time on things like that would better the town both financially and for its citizens. Then everyone wouldn't be FORCED to go to tennessee or scottsboro to shop , they could shop here and keep the tax dollars here. We shop here as much as we can , but face it, there are just some things you cant get here. I really dont like giving my tax dollars to other cities and states and watching them reap the benefits. It could get better, just need the right people in there to get it done!Vote for different people, not the same old ones!

I'm a younger member of the community. I agree that our town needs some changes in the administration. Change takes time, but it also takes effort. I don't think that our council has made the effort required to make this town into the place it could be.

Count on this, in 4 years after this upcoming election I will be running for a spot on the council. I'm going to use these next four years to do research and build connections that will help bring about some change in this town. We need more business brought in. Out on the highway 72 there is so much land just waiting for development. We have a rich cultural history downtown and throughout the city that has the possibility to bring in large amounts of money from tourists. The problem being most people passing through have no reason to stop in Bridgeport. They see nothing but empty fields along that highway and continue on to Stevenson or Tennessee spending their dollars there.
Kudos to the amount of work done at the park providing our children with nice ball fields, but what about after ball season? Again, more business in town can bring about significant economic growth. With the right investors, Bridgeport would be an ideal spot for a multi-screen movie theater. People have to drive to Chattanooga or Scottsboro to see a movie. Same thing with shopping. Anything not found at The Dollar Store or Save A Lot requires a trip to Scottsboro or Tennessee.
Have faith my fellow citizens. We WILL see a change in the future.

I can bet you that they are only intrested in what they can get out of it for themselves....personal gain,if any.one was in that for the city for the true right heartful reason they would do it for free,collect no money or any monitary compensation what so ever,,every 4 years it's the same ol' song and dance around here....this place has always been like this,,for years....it's,never going to change....we need considerate meaningfull and whole hearted people that has strictly the city's advancement for our citizens young and old alike to put into office.....smh

absolutly not! I don't think any of them are qualified. like I said. let them keep going. do not elect the status quo. pick new people that have some idea of how this new world runs. you folks need to leave the state more often so you can see how the rest of america lives. we would not put up with the crap that goes on in bridgeport. I dont think you people know how to stand up for your selfs. It has not shown in your votes.

I think Carla has an interest in making Bridgeport a good place to live and raise your children. She can go to Montogomery or Washington and converse with the best of them. She is very smart and very educated. She would make a great Mayor. Maybe that is what we need is someone who is educated for a change.

We don't need Carla, she is as liberal as they come, and liberalistic ideaology is what is wrong with our country today.
