I'm glad Scott is stepping up. We need strong leadership in the city.

That must be why he married his girlfriend on court square...LOL . What a Joke. Poor girl friend. Gave up her wedding for a political stunt. He will not get my vote. What in the world does he know about being mayor. I guess Brad Greer will be his political adviser. What a mess.... We need some real leadership in this town.

I like Scott and think he'd do a fine job as mayor. However, he'll be better off all the way around if he doesn't associate with Brad Greer. Does anyone in either party like that guy?

Note: Autocorrect changed the word "guy" to "gay" and it would have read correctly both ways. No pun intended.

Scott has demonstrated real leadership. It's not a show. He doesn't have to blog about his accomplishments or throw stones. He's a doer.

I'm not posting here under disguise. I think topix be a better place of we didn't hide. I personally like him! He supports Lana where I just sunk my savings into an older house. He lives near me and is a good neighbor. I have 3 children and a wife of 30 years . We are all voting for him!!! Go Scott and let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

Jackson is more than LANA... He is a West Tennessee Healthcare pawn..... It's a Joke. I would rather have George B than this guy! What business has he ever run? He has been a professional begger for West Tennessee Healthcare before that he recruited half the crap that Lane has on campus that brings their friends to our city to increase our shooting and murder numbers. What has he done? Buy back guns? Oh so many harden criminals just gonna turn them over.... He does not have enough life experiences to be mayor. This is a joke! Liking someone and intrusting someone to run your city are two categories. I like my mailman but mayor no. I like my neighbor but mayor no. We definitely need someone that doesn't have ties with West Tennessee Healthcare. Where are his loyalties? Are they with the citizens or a board room? Everything is grand as long as the board room and the citizens goals are lined the same what happens when it changes? What side is he on? The citizens or the pockets of the ones that got him here? Everyone wonders if people have a price tag... I guess Scott's is very well seen.........

I would never vote for anyone who obtained his/her higher education from Lane College. I mean come on- how bright could he possibly be having gone there?

I agree, Scott is a really nice guy, but what are his qualifications? One term on the city council and the grandson of Bob Conger? I admire his youthful zeal, but it's not his time yet. Jumping in like this shows his immaturity.

He won't win. Not spiteful, just fact. What other names are being floated around? It's still early yet.

Lowe Finney and Vikie Lake are both serious about running for mayor. IF Gist does not run.

I've known Scott for a while now and while he's a great guy. I don't think he should be our mayor. He's barely 30, has never really done anything in life and has really gotten to where he is because of his last name.

Like I said, good guy but not getting my vote (of course depending on who else runs).

He goes to LANA meetings for his political future. He lived there for some time and never saw him at any LANA meeting, he never volunteered attended or did anything productive.(same thing for this Brad Greer guy). Then POOF overnight he was there with T Robert Hill and their gang and was appointed on the board. None of them had been involved in LANA neighborhood before, but because Hill owns property there he can vote. Next thing anyone knew Conger was in as president- and then ran for city council.
