That "southern boy" you heard about is Ruel Southern. who is running as an "Independent". In fact, he's a died-in-the wool Democrat. Not that that makes much difference in a local election. What we did Tuesday was saddle the County with a Commission Chairman (for that, read "County Manager") who admits to not knowing how to use a computer and a four-year County Commissioner who hasn't said one thing about how he will work to solve the county's budget problems, and probably doesn't have a clue.

To the70% of the registered voters that didn't show up at the polls: You got what you deserve.

i know we don't have much choice, but i know what we have, can't say more than that. i would like to see what this southen boy can do. can't be worse, and he doesn't own a trucking company that will profit from him being in office. will jc show us his tax returns and how much he has made before he was in office and how much he has made since he has been in office. it would be interesting. as far as the city under the names posting, that is because of our phone company having an office in jasper.

It's a little but late to be whining about the election. Wait until November 2 and you can break out the tissues again.

We need to quit whining and vote for Ruel Southern
for Comm Chairman. He has stated publicly that he
will not do business with the county. That is an
improvement from both CHASTAIN AND SANFORD.

Let's stop putting the Fox in the henhouse.

VOTE FOR RUEL SOUTHERN !!!!!

We still have a run off election to go and if people are smart and can get the good old boy out of their back side we can still put a great candidate in for commissioner with voting for Charlie Paris. He is best for the job. And far as David Ralston he was best for the job too. Also we need to put Crouch in for the other post commissioner. Great guy and will do the best for the community.

We still have a run off election and if people will wake up and get the good old boy system out of their back side and vote for Charlie Paris and Crouch for the commissioner and post commissioner the whole county will benefit from it. They will work great with Dallas Miller and get some great thing going for the county. They are great guys and definetly the best for the job. As far as Ralston goes he also was best for the job. Just because he cant do a favor for every person doesnt mean he is working hard and doing whats best for Gilmer County. Ralston is a great guy.
