1. Vote out incumbents
2. Actively seek new businesses
3. Offer tax and other location incentives to attract and obtain businesses
4. Re-budget and reduce expenses (earn your pay and listen to the griping.)
5. Cut out pay for commissioners and councilmen for their meetings or have them donate it back to the county for a tax break.( this will also cause people to run who actually care)
6. Promote the county, there are several historical attractions and there is one of the nicest campgrounds in the state.
7. Take the time to find Federal and State Grants to benefit the county's progress and not to just spend money to have something at a reduced cost.

All things aside, it can be fixed, taxes can be reduced, but not with the present administration. To be honest, I would not have a clue as to who would want to tackle this mess, but if qualified and with a good track record, I will vote for them. If not, I will not vote.

Nesbit should have his hands full with his first calling, the church. If he is going to do his job to the best of his ability and in the interest of either his parishioner or his constituents, he needs to give up one or the other. He needs to stand firm and not vacillate back and forth, in short he needs to get a backbone.

Whoever gets the job as mayor needs to think about our children,there is nothing for them to do to socialize.Carthage is becoming a ghost town sadly.Mainly because we take our money out of town since there is nowhere to spend it here besides a Walmart and Dollar Store.

it's sounding like something I've heard before... where's the beef. our politic leaders should do a study of how to reform old ideas of spending the tax revenue in lowering our taxes to recirculate revolving funds.
building a new jail,,,,,,,well it did help give a place for the sick to live. cause there wasn't a place to get the help they needed.
want to hear some good news for a change? on the ways that have no chose but to succeed and restores our dreams!
and lowering the cost of living in the city and out in the county as well????
all it takes is to listen to the unselfish new discovery's!
after all there's plenty of help right here in smith county. it could easily reduce the cost of living by 100 buck per/mon.
are you listing yet??????

That's you topix kids speaking. He is a great mayor and will be in the office as long as he wants to and nobody can change that rather you like it or not.. Take your immigrant asses back to where you came from and leave us country folks alone.. He does what's need to be done for the county not just what's good for you. He earned it from working at a parts store then banker now mayor and he earned it how? Honesty and integrity. He will be elected until he himself gives it up.. That's how it is get over it.

He has became a little too big for his britches if you ask me. Sounds like he isn't listening to his own preaching. Smh at you Michael. Some people know who you really are and the unChristian things you do. God knows and that's who you need to be worried about!

I agree 500% with Pitiful! Nesbitt lies, talks out of both sides of his mouth. Please, a good woman or man step up. 2018 will be here soon.

A great mayor - who wants to turn away industry and jobs just because the growth is on the Gordonsville side? His response is we are a tourism county - wtf are we giving tourism? how is tourism keeping the taxes down

I was born and raised here, It wasnt a tourism county then, it isnt a tourism county now, wth this is our home, i dont give a flat fart if tourists come here and what in the world are they supposed to tour...walmart? because that is about the only thing in this town...and walmarts are everywhere....He needs to worry more about building this town to make the residents want to spend money here not have to go out of town and spend.......tourists are for nashville...and we aint no nashville thats for sure, al we are is a few buildings and a wal mart parking lot, I agree we need a different mayor but like one thread said, people pretty much vote for the last names
