It is obvious that Louallen, Randolph and Graham are united and will vote as one (just look at their political signs posted together ).

Jerry Morgan can beat Graham if enough good people will vote for Morgan over Graham. Morgan has an uphill climb, but he can win.

Morgan will be independent. Morgan is the only shot for a Council that will not be controlled by 3 members.
oh no

Jerry Morgan listened to Vincent who has somehow convinced him that after many attempts to be elected to SOMETHING and never winning, he can get him elected this time. What has this man not run for?? Oh, and is that not Doss signs right next to Morgans I see all over town? Does anyone really want these two as mayor and vice mayor????? I know I sure don't!

Louallen's bid for mayor is nothing more than an effort to advance
his efforts to have a new jail built on his property.

No way in hell Gary, as mayor, will allow Church Street to be closed to build jail Downtown. Gary is lining up the right council to vote Gary's way regarding jail. Even if Gary is elected mayor, he should recuse himself from vote on any matter regarding jail downtown. Gary has a huge conflict there, as he has a huge financial interest in the jail being built on his property, not downtown.

I believe Jerry Morgan will not vote with Louallen, but will do right thing.
just lost a vote doss

I remember when Jerry Morgan sat as a county commissioner. He was almost voted off the commission twice for his wild brained antics. I applaud his military service but even there, most of us have a "military service". Jerry Morgan just wants a seat on the council. He is really a "Bob Vincent" man, and is hard core Bobby Doss man and he is walking the fence railing in projecting the image that he "supports Louallen" in trying to somehow sway the Louallen for MAYOR votes to him and away from Bill Graham. He plugs Steve Randolph as like a "man after his own kind". I for one don't think it's fair for one candidate pretend and announce that some other candidate is "just like them". Jerry Morgan need to try to find out "who Jerry Morgan is" before wanting to be governor, or whatever he's voting for.

That is wrong.
just gained 2 votes

How can being mayor of a city have anything to do with what 9 county commissioers do or think? Bob Vincent has land he has been trying to sell the county for half million dollars. All 5 of the councilmen could resign tomorrow and it wouldn't effect a county jail one bit. You confuse the city council with a county commission. I wonder is the Spring City commissioners are in on it too? You need to go outside more often.
shame on you

Jail is county business and has nothing to do with city. And for the record, it is Court Street not Church Street! Get facts straight before you post. I for one think it is a stupid idea to even think about closing that street. What are these men thinking? What about all of the vendors during festival time. The jail would be right in the way as it would have to butt up to the grass there. Maybe the prisoners could set up booths or sell stuff out the jail windows for bail money. I see no conflict at all over Louallens vote if it even becomes an issue. Far as I know the county hasn't even requested it yet. Jail would be a huge eyesore just as it is now, except bigger. If it comes up to a vote I hope they ALL have enough sense to vote NO. Do not close that street! Shame on you Bobby Doss! You have also lost my and my families votes!

LOL. Can see bobby doss is a vincent man vincent fan but as far as Jerry Morgan, come on. Heis not running for council because of vincent. He would be a better council member than graham. There should be a conflict of interest there anyway with him doing finances for the county. My vote is Jerry Morgan and Louallen. We do not need a three stacked council who vote to please each other.

i will be votin for jerry morgan.he saved a lot of money for the county when he was elected to be one of those 18 commissioners we had back then.with 18 commissioners back then a light bulb didn't need to be too bright to stand out and jerry stood out.i will be casting my votes for mr. randolph council, jerry morgan for council and mr bill graham for council.i think these 3 men will work good together on the council.as for mayor i haven't made my mind up yet.

Read the post. Louallen as mayor can vote no to close Court (mistakenly referred to as Church) street. So, yes, Louallen can influence decision, as mayor, whether court Strret closed and therefore whether jail placed downtown.

And as for the argument about the placement of the vendors at Parade time, who really gives a crap if the vendors cannot setup close to the jail. County does not make a lot of money off vendors, anyway. Hair brain argument.
no joke

My vote is morgan, sorry but graham has hand in too much. It should be conflict of interest to be county finance director and city council. That is nuts. The bad publicity for vincent making morgan run is just total bs because that is the same thing you are writing about doss and that is very well true.
big joke

what you are saying is that it is a conflict of interest for ronnie raper to be an elected commissioner and work for the city of dayton? same thing because graham is elected to be a councilman but he works for the county. to stretch your misguided logic even further, bobby doss as well as billy graham each have a conflict of interest because they each have wives that work for the county school, but then you would have to include bob vincent because he is an elected councilman/schoolboard member and his wife works at dayton city school. the problem is in rhea county the word CONFLICT went out with the baby water. i will vote for steve randolph and flip a coin to see if its graham of morgan. talk about a couple of dull choices.

Wait you lost me here bobby doss's wife works for the county not the city. Bobby has no control whatsoever over county decisions so no that is no conflict of interest at all. School board members with wives in the same system are a big conflict of interest to this taxpayer. That would mean vincent because his wife has taught for city school for all the years he has been on the city council. That would also mean any other county board member with wives or husbands for the same system.

yes the jail does involve the city. like it or not.city and county made and agreement about the teenagers and adults. also if city is not involved with the county jail, then explain this why are the city prisoners held at the county jail and not in a city jail? also gary will want the jail built on his property. to make him money.also county is broke yes this will effect the jobs.after all the cuts obama has made. no matter who is mayor. will not change our problems.as a country we are in a bad way.nashville will be cutting many jobs out in tennessee soon.i will cast my vote for jerry morgan. for this issue only. we do not need a council member representing both the county and city.this in long term will hurt both over all.it is not showing.i do not see three people controling the people of dayton, for one to gain more money. it will still be just like it has been only in a different way.one to get richer. not caring about the people, as a whole city.look it over people.open up your eyes. i say to be a mayor you should not be a member of the council. maybe i am wrong, but i do not think so.

To make matters worse, Doss is related to Ronnie Raper! Either cousin or uncle, not sure which. Louallen does not have any say over county issues either. I heard he is for closing the street for a month or so to see how the people like it. Then have a public hearing to get feedback from people. Sounds like a pretty fair thing to do if you ask me. All the talk about personal gain is unfair. Louallen hasn't been the one going along with Vincent on high dollar trips on our money. He also turned down the city paid cell phone that was offered to him. Don't really see a conflict with wives being school teachers in city or county. Think that is splitting hairs. Would sure like to see the bills on all of the Christmas parties ,casino trips to biloxi, and opryland hotel expenses with food bills. Doss is an ok councilman who may do better with our money with Vincent out of the picture, but can't really picture him as our mayor. What has he really brought to the table since he was elected? An unused concession stand and a red light that in all honesty was really not needed. Not slamming him here, just wondering if I have missed something that he has done or tried to do to help Dayton bring money in. Think Randolph would make good vice mayor and Louallen Mayor. Don't know anything about Morgan except he has run for many things with no wins.
good council

you say doss is a good councilman but go on to say how he has wasted money with vincent on trips and eating. This is not being a good councilman this is being a follower and not standing upto vincent. it would say wasting taxpayer dollars so vincent the wives and I can have a fun time is okay. Sorry doss you got my vote once but the third trip I heard you taking with vincent and the wives you lost all my respect. while I work you folks waste my dime just don't cut it with this taxpayer. I know of about twenty five more trips you took on my dime and I aint happy about it one bit. Louallen for mayor all the way!
