have seen only one sign up for a guy running for county commissioner. are there more seats up for election on this board? has anyone announced to run against them if there are? if memory serves correctly the fellow with the sign up was one of the 3 commissioners that voted against a huge economic boost and event for the county (tough mudder) crippling the economy of the area from bringing in more than 40,000 visitors over a 4-year period. i would think surely some other local is going to run against him? at the final vote on this critical event over 7 people spoke FOR and in support of a yes vote; there were over 100 people in the room, the OVERWHELMING majority IN FAVOR of a yes vote. only 1 person spoke against it. the commissioners went in to executive session behind closed doorrs for over 20 minutes, returned, and 3 of 5 voted NO...you could have heard a pin drop. and thus, the event MOVED TO ANOTHER COUNTY FOREVER. dunces. so, who all is running for polk county georgia commissioner?

i am not voting for a single incumbent county commissioner so there had damn well be somebody else running. If the ones that get voted in this time can't do the job, I'll vote their asses out too. I'm only 1 vote but sometimes all it takes is that ONE. Trust me mistico, you don't want any of those idiots back. they'll turn on ya in a heartbeat.

i agree fthis....but i think the county seats are 'off-set' so there may be only 1 or 2 seats up for election....
....here's the scary part.....WHAT IF no one decides to run against the guys who made the unbelievable decision not to vote to bring 40,000 tourists to the county? that means they would be unopposed and elected back by default. that would be a tragedy....maybe a local person who is well known and more progressive and economically savvy will qualify to run

i know....but there are certain qualifications you have to have met in order to even consider running.
Not to mention, we had one voted in fairly recently that started out to be a good commissioner but then he got sucked in and now, just a few years later, he sucks and he's just as corrupt as the rest of that stupid lot
