In the middle of a great recession what does Boyd do! June 3, 2010 Crossville’s airport important to business recruitment, growth
Spending doesn't get better then this. What we need now is a tree that grows money!
As reported by the Crossville Chronicle By Jim Young:
"At the time of that increased payment councilman Boyd Wyatt said,Äú We've known for several years that we would have to start subsidizing the airport.Äù The city had looked at what other municipalities did and often airport operations or FBOs were subsidized to maintain the operation of the local airport". Boyd Wyatt

Sure, Champagne Boyd! You must have looked at Knoxville! We aren't Knoxville- Beer pockets and champagne taste. So we may have to change the name from Crossville to Champagne, TN.

Timing is everything and Wyatt can't get a hit in financing the city. This airport maybe a great thing in the future but not right now. The bidding was just as high as before the recession; no savings here! And the land isn't going away so financing a big project a few years from now would be the way to go. With slow business growth nationwide, guys like Donald Trump won't be flying into Crossville anytime soon!

STOP THE SPENDING NOW! Just keep our fantastic maintenance crews busy and pay off the debts.

My Vote is for Jim Perry & Boyd Wyatt
I really wonder why Souza is attacking Boyd Wyatt, there are TWO positions open and we should be hearing more about his plans for Crossville instead of the crusade against what Wyatt has done.
Souza has no real credentials to fill these positions other than a grudge match.
No credentials, you have to be kidding. You just insulted more then 1/2 the people of our community including myself!

Here is just a few note about Pete I lifted from his website: Marine Corps Inspector-Instructor for "all" of Northern California for three years. In Sacramento, a member of their Chamber of Commerce for three years. Retired from the military as a "Major" after serving twenty-one years and having a meritorious career.

That's good enough for me! I hope every man and woman that served this great country of ours votes for Pete. I've never called Boyd stupid. Careless with our money yes. But never a insult like you did to Pete. Oh he served in Vietnam as well. Brave, Smart, Leadership, Innovated and insight like no other. He knows we need to stop this out of control spending.

Boyd Wyatt
Public Relations
In the year 2011 the City spent over $43,000.00 for
articles paid to Donald for press coverage.
In the year 2012 so far the total is over 20,000.00 for writing articles for the press.

My question is why do you need to spend all this money on articles? In my book this looks like a personal public relation manager. CNN and Fox call this Spin.

Do we need a SPIN doctor in our little town. All the articles have been billed as "Services Rendered" from the same person but using two company letterheads. Boyd we want answers...

We just want you to explain all of this to us in very simple terms... Why do you need to spend in a period of 2 years over $200,000.00 in media coverage which include printing, writing and ads.

The time has come for those to step forward and ask the question what is the right thing to do.

Farther more we want the mayor to help us solve this question of spending money on as we see it services unnecessary in our little town.

The people need to know the true. Why do we need to spend over $100,000.00 in a 2 1/2 year period to write articles that sound a lot like PR for a city boss.

IN THE PAST TWO YEARS THE CITY PAID OUT OVER $200,000.00 TOWARD ADVERTISING.$1,400.00 of those dollars when toward designing a folder. Some of it when toward a meeting in Lake Tarsi with a none other then Mr. Councilman himself.

This looks to me like Cronyism at it's finest. The city is one big money tree and very few of us get to pick it's fruit. Time for change. Vote all of them out of office now.

Souza is not the only vet on the City Council, so don't play THAT lame card
There is a huge difference between being a vet which is honorable of its own accord and being a highly decorated military retiree officer that worked his way up from a grunt. I would love to know when being a military hero became "a lame card" especially in the volunteer state; do you know your own history?

And as far as "What I know" says. He has no clue about the current and past city government people and what they have demanded of new business.
remain in a fiscal chasity(sp) belt
First I know way more than you could even imagine about the current city council and all they way back to when it was called a city commission.
What do you claim "they have demanded of new business?" The city GIVES to new businesses including property tax breaks on land, buildings and equipment. They sell land cheaply or give it away. They don't demand anything BUT a certain number of JOBS for local residents.
Fiscal Chastity has got to be the funniest thing I've hard yet! Hysterical!
Of course you know way more about the current city council and how much land they give away for free and the tax breaks, you are one of Boyd’s pathetic lakies, in fact from your previous posts I would not be a bit surprised if you were his offspring. A way in which you can tell is your inability to stick to the issue or face Pete directly but simply use snarky incendiary comments. Those snarky little comments do nothing to mask your obtuse and indirect remarks. Why don’t you do everyone a favor and keep your mouth shut until you have proof, or better yet get your Daddy Boyd to man-up and stop hiding behind his paper and have a debate or is he to chicken-shit to do so?

It could not have been said better! During these tough times we need a guy like Pete in office. When it is so obvious that Crossville is hemorrhaging money because the Council members have to go along with boss Wyatt and Boss Hog. Thank God for freedom of speech and of course our military which is there to defend it for us. Semper Fidelis

Warning Signs of Embezzlement

The more money that flows the bigger the chances of something being very very very wrong. No matter the size of the company or for that matter the City there are signs that need to be carefully looked at.

Ploutos I have come to the conclusion that you are related to John Dooley. You seem to love the sound of you voice as much as he did.

You all simply want to pick a few items and go nuts on them. I know some 28 years of city council history but there is no way I could relate it all to you, especially when you don't want to listen to anything but your own uninformed opinion.

Looking at your posts from last night I'm guessing you had been drinking. You post all you want of empty threats and worthless innuendo. I'll meet you at the polls!
