<quoted text>Well the 3 people I mentioned above arent felons so if somebody has a record I would like to know, if your gonna throw information out there like that, why not put a name with it? Honestly I work full time, have 3 kids and spend my extra time doing sports with my sons so I don't have the time to research every person's background. I will be voting based on what I do know about the canidates but would appreciate any input. I grew up in Marmet and just recently moved back here a year ago so there are some names that I am not familiar with, hence why I asked who the felon was.

I would be careful calling someone a felon. Calling Travis Walker one is stupid. Maybe you have some facts to back that up?

Travis, Debbie and Wynter will get my vote as far as mayor, that is still up in the air. Here's my problem with that, everybody keeps saying we need to get Bill out, we need a new Mayor. Everybody is focused on getting Bill out but nobody is saying what they plan to do to make our town better
Exactly. Seems evy1 is forgetting to say how they can make Marmet better. Time is running out

<quoted text>For me, Bill is not an option. Just speaking for myself, I've talked to both candidates and I'm going with Ruth, for a few reasons, based on what they've said and what I know. I don't dislike Bob and I'm not against him, but that's my decision. I think they are both contenders in the race for sure. If Bill gets voted in again I'll be more than a little shocked. That's putting it mildly!
I think our Mayor has a lot of ppl backing him. I won't be shocked at all when he is re-elected

Carma and Voter, you both need lessons in spelling and grammar.

It's spelled karma not carma, everyone not evy1 (that's just plain lazyness) and it doesn't matter if someone running for office has never been in before or not, everyone has to start somewhere. Lifetime politicians like Bill Pauley are what's wrong with Marmet right now. Once we have a new Mayor and Council the first thing on the agenda should be term limits for the town.

Voter you spell it crawl not craw. I'll not Ill. Why not y. and should not shod. Oh and the website is topix not topics.

Looks like neither of you have half a brain between the both of you.

Who ever sent the anonymous letter about Bill Pauley really cut the throat of all of the town council members running for re-election. If the allegations are true, where was the town council during all of this? Some members have been on the council 20 years! We need to totally change the council and the mayor.
So, lets dumb the bums.
I am voting for Ruth Meadows, Tammy Kersey, Travis Walker, Hoop Humphreys and I will see where the dirt lands before deciding on the rest of council.
Again, how did the town council let our town get so far down in the political dirt, drugs and dust?????

It is very sad when 3 people that are running for council put out a letter with so much false information.

It amazes me how some people like to make false accusations about people and not speak facts. Truth- Bill Pauley is a joke to this town, as is his sidekick Jill Runnion. As far as Ruth, she is a nice lady but no one finds it funny that she is running and so is Jill. She has said some time ago that she had no interest in being Mayor because of her husbands health. My thought is she is running only to pull votes from Bobby Wells so Bill wins. Think about it people.
Travis Walker is a stand up guy. Debbie Fontalbert will do a great job too. Jerry-Yes. Ronnie, Gary, Johnny, Bill, Jill NO NO NO!!

Mayor- Bobby Wells

Recorder- Tammy Kersey (No one wants a Meadows)

City Council (Five)
Travis Walker
Jerry McGhee
Bill Tardy

Charles (Hoop) Humphries

Anyone hearing anything different?

I've heard about this letter that was sent out but did not receive one so it didn't go out to everyone, what exactly did it say?

As for my vote,

Bobby Wells for Mayor

Tammy Kersey for Recorder

Debbie Skeens for council, couldn't ask for anyone better

Terry Russell for council because I know him and I know for a fact he's a good man and a military veteran.

and possibly this Travis Walker guy, I don't know him but I've heard a lot of good things about him.

Mayor--Ruth Meadows. Bill and Bob both have been in for over decades while this town went down hill. Bob is/has been the police commissioner while crime and drugs have taken over. I don't dislike him, but I think he could've done more with the time he's served.
Ruth is new enough to not be indoctrinated into these "good ol boy" politics but has worked hard for this town and knows what she's talking about. That's just my opinion. Others feel different and that's great.
Council:
I'm inclined to do a clean sweep, but (thinking about the letter) McGhee and Tardy may get my vote. I seem to recall early in the term, they wanted an investigation into the mayor. It was ugly as I remember it. Bob Wells was furious and wanted no part of it. They were pretty divided the whole term. Its odd to me they support him now. I'm not sure about those 2. Maybe my questions will be answered on the 24th.
Walker and Hoop will get my vote. Terry Russel is a good man, so I'll give him a vote. Again, just thinking aloud on here. You did ask for opinions.

Recorder, I'll go with Tammy Kersey. She's honest and has enough experience. Integrity means a lot to me. She's got it.

I don't know anyone who is actually voting for Bob Wells, but grocery shopping is easier if you say you are. Just nod politely while you select your tomatoes and make a run for the bread!

I don't know anyone who ISN'T voting for Travis Walker and why wouldn't they?

I'm hoping I can grab some apples tomorrow.

I wouldn't vote for "pastor" terry russell to save my soul.....he is really crooked....remember that Satan transforms himself as an angel of light to decieve us. I see him swindle people every week up at our chesapeake Church of God....He is such a good story teller. Some of us see through him though. I see the devil when I look in his eyes
