Joshua Evans is a fine young man with vision. His votes prove he is a true conserative. I believe he is the best person for the job. He has proven he has what it takes to represent all of Robertson County. I am honored to cast my vote for Joshua.
I am proud to say he is my Represenative.

Josh Evans has robbed the taxpayers of over $35,000 in per diem while claiming to be a "fiscal conservative." The choice is clear. Billy Paul has a proven track record of leadership in Springfield and Robertson County- leadership we need in these challenging times.

Nice to see you live in Nashville "citizen." Anyone from the district that knows Joshua knows that he a true conservative. If Billy Paul is so conservative, why does he run as a Democrat? You couldn't pay me enough to associate myself with Obama and Pelosi.

Joshua has done an outstanding job as State Rep the last two years. He's not a career politician like the Mayor. He's a small business owner. I have seen him at nearly every community event I've been to in the last two years. He cares deeply about Robertson County and will continue to do a great job representing us in Nashville!

State Rep. Joshua Evans have represented us admirabley. He has sponsored pro life legislation and supported our rights to own guns. He presents himself in the legislative chambers as informed and committed to the constitution.

Seems that Robbery works both ways. Mr. Carneal has a pension from the County and a pension from the City and now he wants a Pension from the State. All on TAXPAYER dime. Sounds about right to me.

I voted for Joshua Evans for my state representative. If the voters of Robertson County would look at the General Assembly's website they would see that Joshua Evans was at the very bottom of the list in spending and many days took no per diem at all. A man is entitled to meals and gas expenses, especially when a job pays less than $20,000 per year. Don't believe everything you hear! Read and find the truth for yourself. Joshua Evans is a man of integrity. I am so tired of all of the malicious LIES that have been filling my mailbox. Billy Paul Carneal and the Democratic party should be ashamed of themselves.

Billy Paul Carneal is vastly more experienced than his opponent. Unlike his opponent, you can't rightly accuse him of being a family values hypocrite, or a fiscal conservative hypocrite.

Evans lives 24 miles from the State Capitol, yet he billed the taxpayers $35,000 to stay overnight in Nashville (nearly everyday for three months straight- what is that about?). He's one of the closest legislators to the State House, yet he's ranked number 5 in per diem expenses. That information is public record and can be found at Tennessee Office of Legislative Administration. He runs as a fiscal conservative, then parties with our money. There's no excuse for that kind of hypocrisy. Period!

On the other hand, you've got a very nice man and a competent leader in Billy Paul Carneal. Billy Paul calls himself a fiscal conservative too, but unlike his opponent, you can find consistent evidence of fiscal conservatism in his history. After he set up the city manager position in Springfield, there hasn't been a single tax increase since 1988, and he's been the deciding vote to keep taxes at the same 1988 rate many times, and as recently as a few months ago. Despite this, Springfield budgets are always balanced and we have very good public works services. How many governors and mayors can you think of with a track record that good? THAT is leadership, and that is what Tennessee needs in a time like this.

Billy Paul's opponent talks about jobs, but Billy Paul actually helped to bring them- thousands of them to our county!

Look at the facts, put these candidates side by side, and make your decision. If you choose party boy, well, then God save our republic.

So experienced public servants should not run for office because they were in jobs that were pensioned? That's absurd logic.

Evans is a spoiled child whose "christian" values enabled him to maintain his first marriage for less than two years. Evans is controlled by the TN GOP.

The statements being made about Evans being a small business owner are proposterous as he owns the ups store. The rent alone on the building are more than the net profits.
Yes taxpayers of Robertson County you in fact have maintained the ups store with his per diem requests.

Evans is a GOP tool. He has never made an honest dime in his entire life. He is a career politician whome majored in mass communications. For the hillbilly freaks that means he is studied on media control........Evans is from greenbrier and it wasn't that long ago since the famous sign was removed.....wouldn't want to be in mr. evans shoes when the sun goes down on his fat...a$$.....Evans father is a preacher and the control of the white christian churches over politics is at an all time dangerous level.....holy war....yeah we are waging it......

I support Billy Paul, but you need to back up that attack with something solid and specific to Rep. Evans, and not tout such conspiratorial dribble while cowering behind the curtain of cyber space.

Billy Paul's supporters like him because he is measured and pragmatic. The wing nut is unmistakably his opponent. Don't give the enemy ammo by conjuring ridiculous character attacks.

Some should not. Experience sometimes lends itself to robery and hiding it well. Like the new ad that came out yesterday. Local Government is the one that set the Hotel Motel tax.
