The citizens and taxpayers of our county need to help make a change ! We can sit back and let our county be at a stand still or we can make the difference, make the change, and let our voices be heard. Garland will make the changes needed for our county that are NEEDED for our growth. The only way we can get the changes made is to voice our opinions and support the right person for the job. How things have been done to this point is appauling

Penelope and Hard Core are right. Time for a change. I have lived in this county all my life and have seen how things have been done. I know Garland will FINALLY REPLACE the ones we need removed from holding high positions in this county. And yes hard core, we can only hope and pray that it happens. Hope our county sees that Garland is the one we need as Mayor to make the changes to provide growth for our county and finally FIRE the ones that are only out for themselves and dont care who they step on in the process. I would be interested to know what others think and what areas these changes need to be made in

First and foremost I too agree Garland is a very good man and wish him the very best in the election but Garland cannot fire the people at the courthouse, those people are elected officials. You the people of the county has to vote these people out at election time. Plus the county commissioners also have a say in some things there.

Blacky...We are not referring to the elected officials...I am talking in regards to ones that fall underneath his authority...He needs to replace some of those...

Times Changing...Since only 1 person works for the County Mayor/Mayor's office, guess it's not too hard to figure out whom you were talking about. Unless you might be confused.

Confused is right. I would never say Garland is a bad person. I just think he had his chance and quit. If you ever have an emergency like I have and see the group of trained and qualified individuals that show up, its a great feeling to have that in our county. What needs to be changed about that? A vote for Garland will defiantly change that. I have a family member who is in the fire dept and enjoys helping others. The dept has grown a lot over the past few years and more growth is in the works for the future. Can we have faith that will continue. I think not.

I just want to thank you Melvin for your support in trying to help me with some issues I have. So far you are the only one to actually come to me face to face and ask the necessary questions to clear up some issues I have had. It is people like you we need in office to help the county grow, keep problems resolved and questions answered. Keep going door to door and letting people know what you stand for and let them know you want what is best for the county and not for your best friends. Good luck and keep the blows above the waist......

I would like to say that a vote for garland would be a vote to go back into the olden days. He has no concept of how much has changed in our govt. system. I would also like to add that several of my neighbors have said that someone has been putting his signs in there yard without asking! To me that is not very profesional. He may be a nice man and very friendly, but that has nothing to do with making intelligent decisions for our county!

I agree with concerned citizen 100%. Garland will take us back 20 years. Ken Jones has done a great Job!!! He cares and he knows ! Garland had his chance and he screwed it up. And for you people talking about firing Tony. LEAVE HIM OUT OF IT! He has nothing to do with the election and he does a great job ! So if you idiots want to screw our county up go ahead and vote Garland. But you will regreat it !

. Very true Ken has done a great job and just because he does not work on the good ol boy system like his likely Republican canidate. Does not mean he is not a good mayor. It means he is a great mayor! He knows how county government works and he cares about the people of Meigs county ! All of you on here want to talk about Ken lying. well I am sure you all have never done anything wrong. You people probably don't even vote so if you don't vote. Shut Up!

Voting Garland in would be a major setback in our County. He's made a the statement that the first thing he would do is fire Tony Finnell. If anyone has had to use the ambulance service as we have, you would make sure Garland is NOT ELECTED!!! Vote Kern Eschette!!!

He put one in our yard without permission too. It ended up in the trash! If I want a sign in my yard, I'll call Melvin Holmes! He has my vote, anyway!
