If he was innocent(different than not guilty), why the $30000 lawyers? Why the threats to the offices from which employees testified against him?
Why is he taping conversations with employees without their knowledge? Why is Bob J staking out Lois' office? Why does the board go to closed session everytime someone diagrees with the king? Why would you drive around the courthouse everyday checking up on elected officials? Why are we still fighting a lawsuit that has cost the taxpayers millions already and has no value to Union County if we win? I'm sorry, it's the "priciple of the matter", and mikey can save a little face since he, and only he is the reason we got into the soy processing disaster. But, you'll never see these on the front page of the CNA. You will just continue to see the good mikey kissin hands and shakin babies and stayin in the good light. It'll be interesting to see how mikey can make a retired pastor into a bad guy before the election, but I bet he tries.

You just don't get it. King does not have the power you say he has. Mabe you should let the lawsuit play out before you run your mouth. King has to go to the court house to work. He's the chairman. Why do you think we elect him ,if you had the guts to come up and see what goes on.
sick of it all

Retired Pastor from our Methodist church? He was asked to leave and by locals and finished his years out in other small towns. Check his history.

The retired pastor from the Creston Methodist Church was NOT asked to leave, he retired at age 65 - DUH, get a clue! He still fills in for other ministers in the area when they are on vacation or sick, etc. Do you really think that he would settle here to live out his retirement, sub for other ministers, sing in that same churches' choir every week if he had been asked to leave? You should be more careful about you accusations. That is a flat out lie!

$1.3 million spent on "matters in litigation" and less than $75,000 remaining on the last bond. Still to go to trial. Are you ready to shell out more for this pipe dream? A little math for you, approx $22000 a month since the onset of this lawsuit.

It is time for all those who have suffered indignities from Mike King to speak up! Ms. Carson has shown great moral fortitude for telling about her daughter's treatment in the court house and if everyone affected by Mike King's behavior would come forth, then the citizens of Union County could take back their power. The supervisors must be accountable to us and no single individual has the right to bully and browbeat others in the court house. The other elected officials need to take a stand and tell him to butt out of their offices - don't allow him to take over and mistreat your staff. This guy actually takes his name literally and thinks that he can rule the roost. He likes to build himself up by tearing others down. Mike, judgement day is coming!!

Why is Ms. Carsons letter to the editor not on the web page so others can comment on it, like any other letter?
I too believe those who have information about his conduct should come forward.

In reading all the sides for the political races
for supervisor, I have to wonder why the issue of the Ryan subdivision is not being addressed??????
I do believe in this economic time that project should not be done.
And in whose best interest are the board acting?
It is my understanding (correct me if I,m wrong)
but policy was changed to do this project. and money was bonded.
With the county roads being in such need of repair, why would the board concentrate on getting the Ryan subdivision done ahead of all other needs.
The bonding they have taken out would have been better spent in other areas of the county.
What is the policy on private roads, and am I correct to say that policy was changed to help the homeowners in that subdivision??????????

With the recent increase for the county employees, I have to ask.....WHO WAS NOT DOING THIER JOB....
The board, Demarco. or both? Seems to me someone was asleep while the emplyees were doing thier jobs, an increase such as what these workers are going to be paying will set them all back a few years in wages.
Someone was not doing the job they were hired to do, and Demarco certainly was not doing his.
I would be interesting to know what he makes for such reckless disregard for management of the insurance. Most would be fired for such oversight. The board and management for the insurance should be held accountable.

Lets talk about Mike King again - he is hoping to split the vote in November and keep his seat as a supervisor. Does he deserve that position after all the money he has cost this county? What other county has part time supervisors with the full time benefits that Union has, including long term health benefits. That program for supervisors only (?) was developed specially for two supervisors with health problems and one was even offered county health insurance, declined it, then has gotten $500.00 a month for not joining the plan. Between DeMarco and King and their scheming, this county is spending way too much money on their part time supervisors. Now King says that he will reimburse the county for his legal expenses paid by the county (around $30,000.00). If King would have swallowed his pride, apologized and behaved as someone in his position should, all that waste of time and expense would have been avoided. It is time to dethrone the king (20 years is long enough) and move on to cleaning up the mess at the court house. Lets put people in there that will respect the other officials and their staffs and have a great place to come to work every morning!
