How did you serve it? What have you done that's so great? No decent jobs except the mill, nothing for kids to do but drugs and making babies. This is a area with multiple governments that refuse to work together, which results in nothing getting done. Perhaps its time for someone else to step up.

If that is indeed Bill Zimmerman, he has done a lot for the community that I am aware of. Mostly stuff for local teens and so on but I think he's done other stuff too. It's not much but it's something. The problem is that it doesn't last. Sure it brightens a kid's summer and maybe gives him a good memory but when he becomes an adult, Covington does everything it can to hold you down. You either work at the mill and look forward to getting cancer or you are nothing, working shit jobs for shit pay. And it's not just the town that's bad, most of the people here are horrible. Rude, immature, lazy, entitled and just generally worthless. There are a few good people, but the bad far outnumber the good. You go drive an hour in just about any direction and the people are like night and day. Ask any business that comes into this area and they will tell you the workforce here is horrible. I blame Covington itself with all their ass kissing of the mill and not letting any other good jobs come in here. Fuck the mill and every stuck up, lazy piece of shit that works there. This town just needs to be wiped off the map and start over.

Great, Another idiot! Tell me something how does it start at home when people are losing their homes jackass. As for you William, You wouldn't know a community if it smacked you in the toupee. Lets see, I did food drives but that was soon over with thanks to you and the gas prices, I had a friend go up to a church to get food only to get out dated food, As for my husband not only helped support this community but our country as well so don't sit there thinking you did anything. Comm238: Wake up!!(Mostly stuff for local teens and so on but I think he's done other stuff too?) O you mean like YMCA where you are charged a arm and a leg to sign your children up? There are no jobs dear in case you took a notice. You know long time ago there was a fishing tour that guys took young children out on boats and taught them how to fish. I never was so proud to live in Covington as back then. Comm238: yes you are right about MeadWestvaco, I will give you that. I heard a new factory was moving in one of the old Lear buildings but wouldn't you know it MeadWestvaco bought it to use as storage,,,STORAGE!! So William back to you, Start naming things you have done for this community. I'm listening.

wow I really cant believe a councilman would come on here and try to toot his own horn and say the things he has said. That is the problem dating all the way back to when Coors tried to come here and we pushed them away time and time again. now look at that company in Elkton and the jobs they created. What a shame that was but too much of kissing MWV butts at the time. Everyone else around us is growing leaps and bounds and what are we doing, regressing. Has anyone been to the Waynesboro area lately. All I can say about that place is wow. They went from being way down 15 years ago to now they are booming. Just tryin to make a point we set on our laurels (MWV) for way too long. Good thing we have them or we would be a GHOST town.

Your pissing bitching and moaning about every attempt to breathe life into this community isn't a bit helpful. What have you done but sit in the welfare line and complain about how much no one has done for you. You just shit on everything anyone has tried to do.

See its those attitudes that hold this community back. I don't comment on here much but enough is enough. All the one's bitching haven't done anything for the community and never will. Its sad to see the negative attitudes of Covington. Attend our council meetings and volunteer to make this community better or quit your griping!

Hey wow, I am not "tooting" my own horn but unlike you, I am taking up for the hardworking, caring people of the area. I have done my service to the area unlike most of you. All of you are to scared to sign a name or come to a council meeting in person because you are embarrassed of your attitude and mouth!
why yes

Thanks "why yes", none of the ones running their mouths will ever do anything to help the area. They just bash everyone else but will never run for office, attend meetings or serve the community in any capacity. They are just complainers with all the "right" answers!

This is what I'm talking about with our schools, idiots like this who can spell or type. Tell me something sick of it, are your children just as stupid as you? Clearly you don't read nether I said there are no jobs here, How are people to go to walmart to buy a bike if there are no jobs? Who's to blame for no jobs in this area? I'll tell you, the big mouth who is running his mouth yet can't tell me not a single thing he has done for this town Mr. Bill Zimmerman. Do you really think I would feel safe having my child ride a bike in Covington with all the drug pushers, murders, child molesters that's running the streets? I asked him a simple question of telling me a few things he has done for this town and all I get it "I have served my community, have you?" even tho I just said I did the food drive and helped out my community, so maybe both of you can sign up for night classes to learn how to read. Let me ask you something so simple Mr. Zimmerman, part of your job is to listen to the community's opinions right? Yet you get on here, run your mouth to the public saying "I'm tired of hearing this crap" even though it's people's opinions about Covington and how it's been ran into the ground. As stated in the last post if you don't like hearing people complain about Covington and what has happened to it then you have two options, one step down from office and let someone else do it, or two, DO YOUR DAMN JOB!!!

BTW while I'm thinking about it, riding a bike, on Covington streets? really? If the gravel dosn't kill you the pot holes will.

well spoken psidoffwoman. Every side street is tore up in the town. Why is that? Are we replacing water pipes under the streets or what are we doing? I wouldnt want my child on a bike in the town. It is unsafe at this present time. I just made a simple observation point as to how we ran companies off back in the late 70's early 80's and continue to do so today and how other areas are growing. What is so different about those areas Mr. Z??? Why not here? Schools, medical facilities, local government??? Explain please. Just want to know why.
