This statement is not true and I know this for a fact. I hope this forum does not become another source of lies and untruths about the people trying to make a difference for our community.

What did Sam Shipley as City Councilman the last 8 years ever done in this community that made a difference for the good? Shipley is the # 1 fan for non-resident & non-TAXPAYER and City Manager Fred Edens. Big Mis-take!

All Shipley ever wanted, is have his damn picture on the wall down
at City Hall as Mayor of Elizabethton.

Check your fact "Jack". Of course he looks at Shipley, just like the other members do. If you know anything about conducting a meeting you would know that all discussion is directed to the chairman (i.e., Mr. Shipley).

Wrong again. How did I know that you would not check the facts? I guess when you are just interested in lying about other people, facts just get in the way. By the way, are you and "Voter" and "ni sir re" all running on the same ticket? I sure hope the voters can see thru your little charade, lying and putting down other people so you can get "the ticket" elected. Lord help us all if that happens. Back to the stone ages I guess.

I would vote for any ticket as long as they gave you, Sam and mousey, a ticket off the planning commission and out of city government.

No to Treadway, Shipley and Alsup!

Jeff Treadway is a Sam Shipley man and Sam Shipley loves City Manager non-resident, non-Taxpayer Fred Edens.

Treadway is not a change.

Nancy Alsup & Sam Shipley had their turn for 8 years and both are proud of Fred Edens.

Shipley is looking for Treadway's Vote for Mayor.

Wrong again, Jack. What planet do you come from? Do you spend your days in fantasy land, making up the biggest lies you can? This forum has totally lost any validity or relation to the truth.

A Fred Edens & Sam Shipley lover will say anything. If you don't this like forum just stay away. Your problem is that you can't grasp or handle the truth. Edens knows if Shipley doesn't win the Council seat, he will be history.

Sam Shipley stated, "I think the City will be LUCKY & PLEASED to have Fred Edens as City Manager." Eliz Star, 3-14-08

92% of US don't think we are that LUCKY! Fire Fred and VOTE NO with Alsup, Mayor want-to-be Shipley & Treadway.
WOW

Richard Tester is a big NO. His alarm company was responsible for the alarm system at Cloudland Elementary School. The alarm was broken for around five months and he said he was "trying" to fix it. For five months the children and faculty had no working fire alarm. The person who fixed it took a whopping one day to fix it. Do we want someone in an elected office who takes that long to fix a problem when lives could be at risk. I sure don't. We have enough council members who drag their feet as it is. We need new council members but NOT HIM!!!

Nancy Edens Alsup and Sam Shipley are PROUD SUPPORTERS of our 1st non-resident and non-TAXPAYER City Manager Fred Wayne Edens Jr.

Rick Walters

A Vote for Treadway, Shipley & Alsup is a VOTE for Fred Edens.

Send Fred out of Elizabethton on a rail.

New, younger, fresher people are needed on our City Council. Why would voters want to continue with Shipley and Alsup? They have both been in office for years, all the while our downtown and neighborhoods look nastier and more unkept every year. Do these people not see the weeds, unmowed city properties, and delapidated, junky houses all over town, with no enforcement whatsoever of City Codes? Maybe some new Council people will try to clean up our deteriorating town.
