why isn't the citizens for justice saying anything the city worker being fired. Right or wrong the worker should have been given the choice to resign or being fired. Even the President and any supervising official are give that option. As it is the worker was fired with 27 years employment and because of that lost his retirement also

It is unfortunate and sad that someone with so many years on the job lost his job, especially considering the current local economic conditions and the time of year.

However, I met yesterday with Randy Trivette to discuss his decision to terminate Mr. Mumpower. After reviewing Mr. Trivette's justification for the termination I agree with his decision. Furthermore, I believe that the use of inmates to perform any work on county or town vehicles should be immediately terminated and the use of inmates to perform any work outside the jail facilities should be done using sound judgment and under the appropriate law enforcement supervision.

A true friend will never expect you to lie for them, cover for them, or do anything illegal to protect them and compromise your own integrity. So if that's Kent's defination of "true friend" I'm glad I have none. He should be ashamed to post on his facebook page how all these evildoers are trying to take him out of office. He done that himself. You reap what you sow and you will be held accountable for your own actions either here on this earth or in Glory. I'm sure a lot more of Kent's "friends" will be going down as he does too.

Just so everyone knows where you stand. Not giving him the option to quit so he wouldn't lose his retirement sorry. Maybe after next city mayor election there will be some more positions open in the city gov,t

Mis Information is the reason people get all worker up. Call Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System yourself. Unless convicted of a crime no employee fired or one who resigned looses the years of service for retirement

Why would Randy meet with a John Day? Did anyone meet with your Boss at NFS when they fired you? You are part horse John Day, can you guess which part?

Mr. "scout," many of you Harris supporters have made some very strong, uneducated statements about my working relationship at NFS, which is potentially very damaging to NFS at a time when renewing their license to manufacture nuclear fuel for the U.S. Navy's fleet is crucial to their business operations. You should be educated about Topix.com 's terms of service agreement wherein they are very generous when it comes to providing law enforcement with electronic information about posts made on their Web site:

__________

Terms of Service: Overview

Topix cooperates with legitimate law enforcement, school officials requests & DMCA Complaints and we respect your privacy.

__________

As I have told others tonight about their posts, your statement here is not only libelous but now constitutes criminal harassment. In addition, in the event that you are a NFS employee you should consider what they might do when they are made aware of your identity with Tennessee being an "at will" work state that would allow NFS to terminate your employment immediately with no justification required. Your location has already been documented, so it's too late to delete your post. I suggest that you either retract your statement, except the part calling me a horses body part (not libelous, just childish), and offer me an apology in a post in this thread or wait in anticipation for that knock on your door like the one that was received by the sheriff department last week when their computers were seized. I'm confident that it will come when you least expect it. You have 24 hours to make that post. Then I'll make my phone call.

OK I dont know any of you people but have to ask...why would anyone involved in renewing the NFS license give two craps about why you left NFS unless there is a fundamental problem with how NFS conducts its operations?

as for carroll mumpower being fired i dont know what has happened in the past with him but if it was misuse of the inmates i think cozy silvers and henry hampton both should be fired also they let the inmates do as they please these two are always letting them meet with their wives or girlfriends get intoxicated or what ever they want to do tbi should clean house on the whole county.how can someone be off work for over a year or longer and continue to get a paycheck from the county highway dept,maybe tbi should look at greg lynch's office and see why he is signing all the paychecks for these people not working wonder if he would sign some for me

Mr. Mumpower worked for the city of Erwin. Cozy Silvers and Henry Hampton work for the Sheriff Dept. Regardless of what anybody thinks , David Kent Harris is still in charge of the Dept. and is responseable along with Ronnie Adkins for the policies ( which apparently change on a daily basis) of the Dept. and the actions of these employees. I'm sure these concerns have been brought to their attention in the past but they don't seem to care.Reportedly the inmate who was recaptured after escaping a few days ago said he was not trying to escape he just had his wife take him to JC to get a bottle of liquor to share with inmates who were in the garage working on sheriff dept. vehicles. GO FIGURE.

Inmates should not be allowed to walk around unsupervised. I have saw this on several ocassions. As far as inmates working on Sheriff Dept. vechicles, that has to be the most absurd thing I have heard. I wouldn't want to be the one driving the vechicle that the person I put in jail worked on. Just sayin!

Oh if you people that are on Scumpowers side ask some of the people that use to work under him they will tell you the same thing. And whoever said Henry Hampton and Jason Harris should be fired are a bunch of idiots. And Jon Day is noting but a baby and a trouble maker Mr. Day grow you a sit and stop being a big cry baby Kent did do wrong and I hope he does stay in Office. You Big baby Grow up.

I will tell you why they are not trying to help Carrol Mumpower aka scumpower is cause he has like 4 pages of write up on him the last one Sexual Harrassment against one of his workers which the worker could have got a lawer and took it to court but didnt like i have alwas heard what goes around comes around.
