Change Needed

Elizabethton, TN

#1 Feb 26, 2014
Voters its time for a change in Greene County Government. We need to vote everyone out of office and start over with a slate of new people. There are too many lies, corruption, and racial disgrace coming from our elected officials. Many of these people have held office for too long and have become dishonest. We need to get on the band wagon with Knox County and institute term limits for all elected officials in this county. This is our county and we need as voters to take it back over and elected a new group of people to run this county. This is the year to accomplish this as its up to us (the voters) to get this accomplished. Vote for a change in Greene County in 2014.

You can't fix stupid and Greene County is full of it. I have never seen so many dumb people in one place. They would elect a cow for a county commissioner if it came from the right family. They would overlook it's criminal and sexually deviant behavior...or if the cow was charged with a crime and couldn't get out of it, they would elect it's spouse out of pity. Geez, this place is hopeless and the people of this town deserve exactly what they get. Can't wait to get the heck out of here. Yeah, yeah, I know all you Greeneville natives, you can't wait either because foreigners like me are the problem...LOL.

You are right, you can't fix stupid. You're a prime example of that.

I am an independent and see people, not gays. You are a homophobe. I will gladly leave you all behind as soon as my poor child graduates from your deficient school system. I can't move right now because he/she is too far behind to graduate in any other state.

Spoken like a true local who has never traveled outside the Tri-Cities. Of the half dozen places I have lived in my lifetime, Greeneville is by far the most corrupt and ridiculous. You would only realize that if, like me, had ever lived anywhere else.

Sorry to keep posting, but I am not finished yet. I should not even need to defend my position...just check out the local headlines. Greeneville is the laughing stock of the Tri-State area. Corruption here runs so deep that we could feature a news story every single night on the thievery and mismanagement of the town, its offices and utilities and would never run out of stories. The saddest part of the whole affair is that the majority of Greeneville doesn't realize that the few are ripping them off, controlling their wages, and taking advantage of them. These few are not the liberal, democrats, and evil foreign types, but the local, bible beating, conservatives...or so they pretend. Wake up Greeneville.

Seems to me, if you are insinuating our school system is behind, then a responsible parent would catch their child up on education when they get home. If you are insinuating that YOUR child has a learning disorder, then staying here will not help that at all. Just my view of your comment!

All stupid people are not in Greeneville! For example, There is a team of them on my television at 6:00 and 11:00 on WJHL reporting what they call "news" believe it or not they actually told a caller who had called to complain there was never any reports about the good things people do, like teachers who spend their own money and extra time on students in need, nurses who give more time and care than they are ever paid for and WJHL's response was, "that's NOT news!" Isn't life hard enough without that worldview! TURN IT OFF ! If we stop listening to bad-mouthing of others (anyone can make a bad decision-no one is perfect)! Maybe the evening news would have to start telling something worth listening to!Now, please know I am in NO WAY defending the politicians in Greeneville, but can we at least look for the good in the rest of our public servants when they do something right or admirable!

To set you straight, my child is the Top TCAP test scorer in the high school he attends, but he lacks the kinds of intensive educational opportunities he might have gotten elsewhere. You need only to do your homework to see where the state of TN ranks in education compared to the rest of the US.
We are biding our time. Waiting to sell our investments here, so we can leave. Don't worry you wont have to hear from me much longer. I am sure you are glad of that.

Most of us here are very sorry to hear that you have a retarded child. Hopefully you can get him/her some help at your new "shining city on the hill." Your new Utopia awaits. Good luck and vaya con Dios mi amiga.

Maybe you should have spent the money to send him to city schools. Tightwad.

Sorry Honey but you would be very wrong. I've lived in AZ, GA, PA, OH, NY, MD, NJ and of course good old TN. I was born and reared in Greene County and when I retired I moved back. As I see it you can either complain about the situation you are in or change it. You like so many other people just like to sit back and see how much you can run a place down rather than try to find the good in it and build on that.

What is the total investment that you have made here? I'll write you a check to get your whiney ass out of here, and I can afford it. Give me a number.

Wow. I guess I struck a nerve. Too bad, the truth is sometimes hard to swallow. Your trite espanol phrase does not impress.

I agree with you on some of your points, yes,we county folks aren't much on foreigners or cows or cows that are commissioners, but..voting for a spouse out of pity ... I will vote for any candidate right now that can assure me they can provide the same quality service that we have grown used to with Mr. Thompson being at the controls of. I believe before I cast my vote I will ask the girls in that office if they will enlighten me as to whom they will work for and maintain the excellent standards they have shown in that office. I did vote for Mr. Thompson and I believe he did a great job improving the customer service and greatly eliminated the long waiting lines. What I have observed in going in that annex is the smiles on their faces and the greatly improved customer service. And no, I did not vote for Mr. Thompson out of pity and will not do the same if Ms. Thompson gets my vote.

I have said what I came to say and am not the least impressed with the responses. Not one of you has the sense to admit that:

1. Local government/elected officials and utilities are for the large part corrupt.

2. The voters in Greeneville continue to put their crooked friends and family in positions of power and then scratch their heads in disbelief when their foul deeds come out on the evening news.

3. Education in TN is at the bottom of the pack when compared to other states.

Statements of truth ...but you would rather I just go away than face the facts. How local of you all. I am not looking for Utopia, just someplace better than Greeneville. I have tried to find a niche in this place and have been shown, that like anyone else without a local family name, I am not welcome. I cannot work for change in a place that doesn't realize change is needed. So, I plot my escape and leave you all to your backwoodsy ways. I fear the originator of this thread will be sad to see that in Greeneville it is never going to be the right time for a change.
