Is it true that Ben Zandi and Bart Long are trying to get all their friends on City Council so they can do as they please with the city finances and employees?

is that why mr Turner did not want his friends fined the same as others after the beer stings during the fall race? get a copy of the beer board minutes... Will he act the same if on council? not fair to all!!!!!

i haven't seen any major change or "improvement" in having zandi and dolan in there. zandi's going for power and dolan's going for glory doing photo-shoots. most of the time her questions in council are rather stupid and the rest of the time she's not there.i'm not strongly FOR anyone. they've been adequate for what bristol is. however, it took forever to get people to see what gaines was and now here's two people trying to buy their way to controlling bristol. WHY. spending their own money just to help bristol out. zandi's already sold or closed a couple of his businesses here and dolan is in virginia. at least the other 3 are in bristol, tn. they need to save their money for themselves.

I guess the big turner sigh in zandi's front yark is to show he and Bart long are behind all of the big expensive signs their friends are putting up. At what expence is the council seat worth these days.Can you buy a council seat? Ben and Dolan did two years age...Wake up people,DO NOT LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN !!!!!!!!

Just reading the above comments makes me wonder what is really going on in Britol, TN. It is curious to see how people seem to be aligning themselves. I would like to have the money being spent on this campaign. By the way, does a council seat pay so much that the winners will get their money back? Of course, that's if you believe that they are paying out of their own pockets.

And what do they really stand for? At least with Feierabend, Shumaker, and Staton you know what you will get - three people who truly love Bristol. The are not out for photo ops, they don't act like they are out to get themselves ahead. They are on council for Bristol. And what kind of shape is Bristol in when it comes to debt? Probably better than the urronding communities. People call it a narrow minded attitude when we do't annex everything, or build lots of new restaurants. But we did build a beautiful new school. I call that being sensible with our money.

And how did you like the article in the Herald Courier today? Legal maybe. Ethical? You decide.
Your vote will tell folks what you truly feel about your city. Keep it a city for the people, not a few (the way it use to be).

This Bart Long deal reminds me of something I once heard from one of your great vice presidents when he got caught with his hands in the cookie jar.-"There is no controlling legal authority that says this was in violation of law." -- Al Gore

We don't need to go back to people with personal agendas on the council.

I am really curious to see the agendas proposed by all candidates. Does anyone really know? I want the best for Bristol. I also am concerned with who I vote for because so many conservatives are bashed in the media. At one time our country was praised for its values and now those who still hold those values are viewed as fanatics by the media and Hollywood. We are criticized because of our moral beliefs. I would really like to know where all these candidates stand on local and national issues.

Chad Keen and Lea Powers are good people and don't have anything to do with Ben Zandi's / Dolan agenda whatsoever. You can talk to either one and they will be straight with you.
