Williams is running and that is the worst-kept secret in Carter County. He will win because people in Carter County are arse-stupid, and whomever replaces him in Nashville will never get state money because nobody in Nashville wants to give him money to spend. We will be the laughingstock of the state and if we elect him we deserve it.

Williams might run but getting elected won't be as easy as some of you think. I won't say who because this is second hand news but I hearing that a Star employee is going to run. They'll be tough to beat if this is fact and not rumor.
never again

Surely, people have enough sense to understand Humphrey's priorities are far away from the important issues surrounding this county.
He's not pushed for any industry (the main objective of his campaign). It's been petty issues that's taken front stage. I don't like the ego, because he's far from approachable, unless your apart of the big CIA crew. Ironically, this small group is primarily full of people that's recently moved here from up north. These people have no children, so the idea of funding education is of no concern. The mayor falls into that circle.
Williams has a lot more understanding of this county, and would be a essential asset to our area as mayor. This little dweeb, just needs to work at the animal shelter, or go back into plant manager. Being plant manager in the past, makes it clear why he assumes everybody must take orders from him, that attitude doesn't far well.
I remember voting for Leon, then tried speaking to him almost a yr later at the courthouse. When a man can't stop and give a simple "hello", when spoken too, then I have nothing for them as a county official. That was a very rude encounter, and that wasn't the man I seen before the election. Those things don't fall to the waste side, I'll take that into account.
Any county official, especially the mayor should have extreme knowledge of this area, and a attitude that makes people feel comfort when approaching them with any problem or a simple "hello". Humphrey, will never receive this woman's vote again!

The Star, namely Nathan Goodwin, is right up Kent's behind. They will write op-eds against their own writer if s/he runs against Kent.

First of all I believe Leon has a son in high school. Kent's the one whose kids are all grown.

Leon does have a manager's attitude to be sure, and that has not worked well with a Commission that does not want to manage things well. Leon has not been able to "work for" anything, industry or otherwise, because the Commission will not work with him. I'm not singing his praises per se but he can't be blamed for not doing things the Commission has not allowed him to do.

Kent hasn't done anything to bring industry here either. He's been too busy trying to get money for a fish hatchery so he has something to catch at his big lake house when he comes home. He wants a bedroom community here and that's what we will get if he is Mayor.

We really don't need either one of them, but who else will step into the fray?

Everything you have written is correct. A fish hatchery will create jobs for how many people? Has Kenty answered that? By the way, who will make money from this venture?

Maybe the categories for this poll should be Humphrey, Williams, or ANYONE ELSE.
