the 20 cent increase was all the brainchild of Mr. Moss. He promoted it by sending out copies ahead of time and working to get supporters. I believe he used to do the accounting work but have heard that he has not for a few years now. tim white did not read a conflict of interest statement on any of the votes he gave
If Mr. Moss recieves any money from Rodefer and Moss as a retiree, that is an indirect benefit= compensation I believe. Therefore the TCA would still apply. Would need to see his tax record to verify if he says he doesn't receive compensation from that auditing firm. If he does, he's violated the TCA as well for as long as he's been a commissioner. People shouldn't be allowed to be on the commission or board if they are receiving direct or indirect benefit from the taxpayers. That's how you stack the deck in your favor. Don't believe any of them when they read those conflict of interest statements. YOu will notice they never vote against what they say they have a conflict with.

It's being talked about and talked about, all the wrong doings going on with the city and county leaders. Everyone knows how crooked they are, how they are cheating us out of our money, but nothing is being done about it, just talk. They are all buddy buddy, so they are not going to change anything, so what can we do? Isn't there somebody we can call in and get these people ran out of office or even locked up for their crimes.

We have no control over these people, we need help in this town.

I guess you would have to take this to the mayor to begin the investigation and request for tax returns as evidence yea or nea. Also, I did see that hensley voted against the tax increase though he had to read the statement as his wife is a teacher... The deck, as you called it, is certainly stacked against the taxpayer as many of them work directly for the county, thus are in direct conflict, regardless of reading the statement to cover the legalities of doing so..

Good for Mr. Hensley. That's probably a first......People shouldn't be allowed to vote as commissioners, or board members if they have a direct/indirect interest in what's being voted on. Just shouldn't happen.

Hey Mr Know it All, Before you make allegations maybe you should have the proof ready to show to the public. Bet you own no property, your kids eat free (TINSTAFL), both lunch and breakfast. You are the first in line for anything that is government free. How much did your property tax increase?. I doubt if you were ever educated at a school. The only education you have or ever received was "down at the store" or the county fire hall, where the store bums know everything. By the way, did you drive to the "store" or fire hall on a county road. Do bitch all the time, about everything? Get a life. Bet you don't even like the preacher, if you go to church. You are probably the biggest pillar of crap in this community. Have a nice day. How much will your property tax increase? Don't forget to tell us.

Anyone who has a choice in voting themselves a raise, Will! That's just humanity. That's also a conflict of interest, no matter what they read. In other words a big fat lie.

If you want to read the entire booklet on County Elected Officials Ethics and Ouster Rules, then cut and paste this into your address bar. Prepare to study a bit.

That's exactly right. It was up to him to know the law that applies to him as a commissioner. It is even worse that he didn't read the conflict of interest since he obviously had a huge conflict.....he got more than compensated for his "low" bid by getting other projects (according to reports) that more than made up for his low bid, to the tune of $9000.00 more work. Wonder if that helped make up for that low bid? People it's in black and white what should be done, now let's see if the county commission will do their job.

The rule about conflict of interest applies to school boards too. Wonder if any of them are being compensated for work done by themselves or family members in any way. Does anyone know? They would be kicked off the board and have to pay back the money.

it's all in that 35 page book I posted, just got through reading it, seems like an attorney would have to evaluate the nuances of some of these rulings. please study and voice your educated opinion to your commissioner and your mayor

You know what kills me the most. Take a little money out of your pocket, and your all screaming no fair. Tim White was on the fence about rather to even pass the school property tax hike. He was very concerned just like many other commisssioner as to what was being done with the money. I guess no one questioned him back in April when he did the job. Dr. Kirk look into it, and even her attorney told her there was no breech of ethics. Sometimes I wonder if we want hate someone so much that we forget to read the facts. It is true he might vote on the budget, but he does not make the decisions on where the money goes. That is why even Greene County own attorney will not take on the case. He knows good and well Tim White did not do anything wrong. Yes this is political, and this is a personal vandetta. Because he decided to vote in the property tax hike. You know what instead of complaining about your commissioners or school board. You might want to take a look at who runs this town. You would be amazed if you found out just how dirty some of them really are. I can think of three names right now that would be in knee deep crap, and could not get themselves out of it. If only the public actually knew what they had done. The difference between our county comnmissoners, and others is... THEY CAN"T BE BOUGHT!! Might want to rethink your positions if I were you!!

Bull$%#@ Tim was never on the fence. He just loved the publicity and got his 15 minutes of fame over the "swing vote". WHen this is all done, he will probably wish he had done what the majority of voters wanted, and voted against it.

The reason his attorney isn't touching it, is it would be a conflict of interest for him, seeing that they are neighbors. Why don't you help the town out and enlighten us on what these three individuals have done. If you can prove it, we'll take it from there. BY the way, anyone can be bought!
