Smith Co. has lost many, many jobs and plant closings since he has been in office. The county has spent many tax dollars on things that could have been put on the "back burner", i.e. Crump Park, County Welcome Center, Walking Path in So. Carthage, etc. Spend our money trying to get the buildings filled in the Industrial Park

He tries hard. He does waste a lot of money on useless projects. He is an extremely poor judge of character. Several lead him astray an everyone around him sees it but him. To trusting and many take advantage of that. Example, if 50 people come to him and said we know employee A robbed a bank, he would go directly to employee A and name the 50 people that saw employee A rob the bank and then saw did you do it? To which Employee A would respond, no I did not.(Note during this entire conversation, employee A is covered in red dye...lol.) the mayor would then go back to the 50 and say he didn't do it because I ask him and he/she denied it. Now Emploee A has the money feom the bank job plus he knows the names of the ones that saw him. I know this may sound stupid but its so true. Many can attest to this.

The Industrial park has businesses in almost al of the buildings over there, most of them are all automated so they don't need many workers. And the county mayor is not the boss of the other elected officials.
wow

Add an honest one. That pretty much takes care of most contenders. Walmart didnt kill it. The leadership did that all along. You cant live on past ideas. The world has changed. If you cant change with it and accept change. You fall to the way side. Walmart just put the icing on the cake. One can be totally consumed and hard at work and doing it all wrong. Because they wasnt able to change from the old ways of doing things. I suspect one can also be lead around by people who have a lot to gain by making changes that benefit their bank accounts. Many reasons for things the way they are. Mostly is not being a strong leader and able to say no to strong opposition, you know is doing it to benefit themselves. You wont get but one term if you go against the grain. Several do this in a row and the grain would be soon gone. Its not a career position anyway. Have to realize that first.

The way things are I would suspect one would be a glutton for punishment. Trying to make a change in business as usual. I dont make decisions for others. So name dropping would be disrespectful, and fruitless, not knowing if a person was willing to tackle such a task. Maybe we should ask who is willing to accept the challenge and hold a debate to see who is best qualified. Is that not how the system is supposed to work ? We need more choices. Then whittle them down to one. I have heard folks say, why bother, they are elected by their last names. Not qualifications.

I do not approve him as county mayor. He's more like South Carthage mayor everything we spend money on as a county gets built in South Carthage. It makes me sick every time I drive by and see all the county citizens tax dollars at work for South Carthage prominance. If the cities in the county want these things let them pay for them. I'm tired of working my a$$ off and all my taxes going up every year to build one of our "GREAT" municipalities something else sensless.

The park n south carthage was well worth the money. I use it and enjoy knowing i have a place that is safe.
i still say 23 commissioners r too many. That is stupid. This no sales of beer by the can n bars is unjustified as well.

Nesbitt is the COUNTY mayor, Just because something is done in South Carthage does not mean it is just for South Carthage, it is for everybody in the county. Enjoy it!!

Check out the counties unemployment rate. Its 7.2% as of 12/24/2011. Thats over a full point below the nations average. I guess the complainers are wanting more welfare and some of our county money to help them not work. If Smith County had 20 more factories, the same people that complain about everything wouldnt work there because it didnt pay 40 bucks an hour and give them 40 vacation days a year. Too many complainers and not enough people who eant to EARN a living any more. That would be the mayor or somebody elses fault too I guess.
