What is Matt Sanford working on it seems to me that all he is doing is bad mouthing the disable and leaving them in dalton to find there own way home, then tell others how much trouble they have cause and you cant seem to get to the commissioners office because, David Ridley will not return your phone calls and certain people in the office are hateful. That is okay they need to take it one step further and make this whole thing pubic. I say go for it. Also the DOT needs to step in and ask what is he doing and why they are not making money, all the commissioners is insterested in is spending money that we dont have. They are more worried about what kind of good that Matt Sanford is doing. all he is doing is running murray tranit in the ground and wasting our tax dollars. PS I am a registered voter in a Murray County

I agree! Maybe if MR Sanford spent his tme at the Transit Dept it may run more efficently and MAKE money for our County. He should be planning to expand the Transit System. I DID NOT read one thing regarding this. He should call Whitfield County and learn from them how to make a County Money!

How come the daily citizen is not accused of being too close to county gov't? They seem to write a lot of ass licking stories.

This story is in the DALTON CITIZEN!One of many in this paper. Most written by Mark Millican. There were also many articles in the CHATSWORTH TIMES most written by Gary Tanner. It seems like a David Ridley Commissioner and Employees CAMPAIGN without an Election! It is almost comical. And, I did vote for him!

I too am a registered voter in Murray County, I say we stop worrying about Matt Sanford and figure out how we could get David Ridley and Howard Ensley to dress like Boss Hogg and Roscoe for a picture for the Chatsworth Times

sure it'd cost tax dollars but isn't it worth it?

The engine for change is another idea that is going to provide a job for family and friends. This county is almost a million dollars in the red, why don't we cut the fat in the Commissioners office. I don't understand why no one in the media asked about the fats previous employment and the reason he left.

Maybe we could get the Magistrates office to dress up and be the characters of GUNSMOKE. Coot Thompson could be FESTUS and Bryant Cochran MARSHALL DILLON. Maybe Virginia could be MISS KITTY.

This is such a riduculous article. For a county that has no money this sure is a waste of it and time. The school should let business majors due this as a special project...for free

hOW TRUE. Murray county should get themselves out of a financial bind and get rid of unnecessary positions. The County officials starting from the top down should take a cut in pay. This has helped many other communities.

Who is "they"? I would not wish that on anyone. Murray county needs to wake up. How funny in yesterdays Chatsworth times the County Finance director states that Murray county is in good shape financially! However, if you read the budget we are NOT. This may be another position that should be done away with, or at least get someone new.
