<quoted text>Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't the Independent candidate terminated from a job for mismanagement of funds? Maybe this is just politics but I am told there is documentation to this effect. Do we giver her a pass on that also since we seem to be letting everything else about her slide?
. You really don't know what your saying. I worked with her for years at ESP. She did a lot with no help at all. She never took any money that's a lie! Jennifer Teague caused a lot of problems and wanted her fired. She was up Dr kirks ass and got her way. Becky really got a bad deal. Also something you should know I still work there and they never said she ever took anything and I know she wouldn't any so where is your written proof anyway. You should stop talking about her this way. She's a really good person. It's not fair her husband did what he did to her.

Principal of doak. She wanted to control the program. She is the one that had Becky moved to Mosheim. Doak was a mess without her. Teague caused problems for Becky and all of the staff. She's a bully.

Dr. Kirk as in the person involved in that controversy with WJHL a while back? If Teague was up Kirk's a77 then is it safe to assume that she was doing Kirk's bidding by trying to get Thompson replaced? I would assume she would have to be as I recall something in the news about this. Good grief, what a mess.

<quoted text>I did not say she took money, I said the story goes she was let go for mismanagement of money and I asked if this was so. Your reply seems to indicate she was let go. If Dr. Kirk let her go on Jennifer Teague's request I am sure there is documentation as to why. Perhaps someone knows what that documentation says. If she was let go without cause then why did she not file a complaint or grievance or get her a lawyer, the position and money her husband was in they could surely afford one.
maybe it was because of the position her husband was in as to why she never pursued it with an attorney. how many people did it take to replace her? I heard it was several

I'm just telling what I know. I witnessed it all you didn't. I saw how she was treated. There is much more to this than what your hearing. Jennifer would come to ESP and just stare at everyone. Sage acted nuts. Becky didn't get a lawyer but she should have she got done dirty .

Perhaps Ms. Thompson chose to not draw up a sword against her enemies as she has never done so in the past. I find her to be a great mother, a faithful and supportive wife and probably should have drawn that sword and neutered her old man with it as soon as she discovered he had messed around. She worked diligently to get his hind end voted in and now I think the tables are turned and it will be sweet justice for women scorned if she wins.

<quoted text>I am quite fascinated not only because it is relevant to the Clerk's race but also because it may be a cause for an investigation into the Principal at Doak and the School Superintendent. I certainly do not want a Superintendent who makes decisions based only on whether an employee had their nose stuck up their A--. I agree there is much more to this than what I am hearing. I would like to hear from somebody on Dr. Kirk's or Ms. Teague's point of view to make it fair and balanced.
I know someone has tried to look into the bullying problem at Doak. Do you not watch the news? I promise there is a bullying problem and it starts with the staff there. They are stuck up and snotty. I could not ever say anything I need my job to much. I think dr Kirk is blind to all of the real problems

<quoted text>I have several issues with Ms. Thompson: First, she is running as an Independent instead of as a Republican, has she really rejected the principles of the Republican Party or is this just a ruse, if it is just a ruse I find it dishonest. Second, her forgiving a husband who cheated on her is her business but to go after the office he held and use the influence he had to gain that office to me it puts her in the same boat as her husband and she must answer for his mistakes. Third, she promised she would tell the public why she was running after the early May primary, this is June and she has failed to do what she said she would do. Fourth, she needs to explain what took place at her place of employment and why it took place. I am willing to listen but I have not heard any explaining yet.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and you present some interesting questions . Did you question the Crums and Holts during their races and ask them why they ran as one thing when their record says another? I am sure the candidates don't use these forums so I guess we have to get the answers straight from them ourselves.

First, in this county you have democrats claiming to be republicans in order to get votes from the majority. It's nice to finally get a candidate who will openly represent both sides and not hide behind the D or R. Second, what she decides to do with her husband is her business and NO she should not be held responsible for his affairs. Please keep in mind they have a child to consider. Thirdly, she told the public why she is running back in February. Guess you missed it in the Greeneville Sun and on WJHL. And lastly, she has already commented on her issues with her last employment. Again, on WJHL and the Greeneville sun. If you want answers to all of your questions ask her, I did. You would be surprised she's not as bad as you and others on this site are saying and she is NOT her husband!!

Well you obviously have an ax to grind. But that's ok. You have your right to your opinion and I have mine. I at least took the opportunity to ask Thompson myself. I can assure you your statements are just your assumptions and nothing more. She is far from protecting that husband of hers. From your tone it sounds like your decision is based solely on the fact that her husband is David. Which again is just your opinion. I promise there are many reasons why she is choosing to run. Not fair to judge if you know nothing about the situation or circumstances. But how you conduct yourself is your business. Have a nice day.

How soon you forget, when she decided to run as an independent, he was on the ballot as a republican so i would say it had nothing to do with the party, more a grudge against him but who knows. i have voted for R, I, and D

It is not enough David Thompson put a black mark on the party and put a county office in jeopardy of being lost but his wife seems to feel she is more entitled to the job than the duly elected Republican Candidate. She is hurting the party by possibly splitting it and allowing the Democrat to win. If this farce continues you may very well become acquainted with Jennifer Bible as your new clerk.
. Sorry but I'm tired of this discussion that you are having. I do want to know about Jennifer Bible. Fight with someone else because I'm not game with that!

<quoted text>Very well if she chooses to hide behind what she has already said then I would strongly oppose her candidacy, it is a fraud. She is not an independent she is a Republican running as an independent. She is using her husband's influence to gain this position and not running on her own unlike the other two who are running on their own record. She claims to be doing this for her family, well to put it bluntly her family is a disgrace to this county right now. I have heard nothing from her which warrants a vote from anyone. If she really wanted this job she should have waited and allowed this fiasco to clear, maybe 4 years but it as it is she wants to fight for her family at the same time as she is protecting her husband, does not work that way. She would have been soundly defeated in the Republican Primary and she knows it. Now she wants to run against a weak Republican Candidate and a Democrat, I suspect a double cross, I suspect the people loyal to the Thompsons voted for the weakest candidate in the primary, Lori Bryant, who many people were surprised won, and now they will switch and vote for Thompson. I find this husband and wife team conniving and without morals. Greedy and obnoxious. Bonnie and Clyde.
Appears as though you have a very strong opinion on who you are going to vote for. In circumstances like this I would say profoundly"me thinks you doth protest too much". You just turned me totally off with this statement, what sort of protection would you give your cheating, whore mongering husband,eh? From what you are saying if she ran against her husband before he resigned she would have been defeated. How in the help do you figure that? Are you insinuating we, the voters would turn a blind eye to the allegations and what he has apparently admitted to all ready and vote for him anyway? If that is the case you are a clueless person and also the one with more knowledge of immorality than what you have just insinuated them to be. I for one resent the fact that you appear to be accusing the voters in Greene County of being that ignorant.

Start a new thread for the Republican Party is what I believe this individual is hinting at as this forum is supposed to be for people who want to become better acquainted with J Bible. Thank you and have a great day.

<quoted text>When she pulled out and repudiated the Republican Party, that told me all I needed to know about her, she is worse than the worse Democrat. I just cannot see any real Republicans voting for her after she spit in their face.
I will, due to the fact that the way I interpret her standing as an Independent is this; how many of us loyal Republicans knew about her husband's escapades with those women and chose to not tell her hmmm? If it is something so morally justified as this then she will get my vote.You probably would not understand about morals but some of us do. She didn't spit in my face or repudiate me but you have. If you are an example of what is left of the Rep. Party then don't lump us all into the same group.

The voters of Greene County voted a sexual predator into office. Go spent some time with Lori Bryant and come back and tell me if the voters are ignorant or not.
Seriously Clueless, I have not resided here for very long. August will be my first opportunity to vote and it is sometimes difficult to wade through all the bullshat to get to the truth in these elections..I am not speaking in specifics of Greene county,but all elections. I asked in a much earlier post and did not get a response; do they have some sort of Q&A meeting for the voters with the candidates or do you have to chase them down at one of those ham suppers or whatever?
