I agree.

Now it's time to put their a*sses on the skids and take OUR county back!!

-

We also MUST get on the ballot next election;

1) Term limits for ALL elected officials.

2) Where a candidate MUST have 51% or more of the vote to win or the top two have a run off election (instant run off election would be cheapest to do; you do that when you vote the first go around, you rank the people running from #1-whatever; then the person with the most highest ranked #'s wins!).

3) Recall elections for ALL County elected officials.

The county should sue the frauds that put the chater on the ballot to make them pay for the
legal fees that will now have to be paid by the taxpayers of Fenrtess County. Having the charter on the ballot was a complete joke. My dog could run for office and get 29% of the vote.

recall already in place, to have a runoff you have to have a primary, costs county about $30,000.00 for each election, the more we have , more tax money to pay for it.. elections are not free, people are paid to work. Why would you need an extra election, just vote for someone else. Everyone in the county votes for an executive. Only the 5 districts can each vote for their OWN representative and that should be their choice.. The more people that run for executive, the lower percentage they will win with, so people, don't everyone decide they want the job and decide to run.

charter could have done all of this. Election commissioners campaigned against charter. No wonder it failed.

Recall elections? I thought you said it does not exist in Fentress county? Am I wrong?
Term limits? No.
Win with over 50% plus 1 vote? Yes.

If the commisioners are so bad and everyone is against them, then them being against the charter should have made it pass. Your theory just doesn't hold water. Sorry.

GH, it was over $30,000.00, one attorney was paid over $15,000.00. There was a second attorney, plus advertising and rental and sound system fees.

I feel bad for Fentress County - you folks missed a great opportunity to rid the county of cronyism. The same type of folks that voted AGAINST the charter PROBABLY voted for Obama - can't see the woods through the trees

Wow you screwed up big time

I hope people will start getting more involved. I have learned a lot. I hope everyone has. We are doomed with Obama. Let's take a stand locally. Show up for meetings everyone. Take your 5 min. To have your say if needed. Get copies of all the meetings and share them. Keep track of the public financial records. This is your (our) county. Fight for it!
Resist the legislation AGAINST URBAN SPRAWL. fight for your rights! Save urban sprawl! Say no to big government in fentress county!

It's obvious you have no idea what you are talking about.

1) Recall elections for county officials are NOT on the books! That's why they were written in the Charter.

2) You do NOT have to have Primary to have a run-off to have a run-off election. And, there are several different types of runoff elections. Like I said in my previous post, an "Instant" run-off is the best and cheapest to have. Let me break it down for you uneducated people; http://www.instantrunoff.com/the-basics

You do this at the same time you cast your vote for other people or issues on the ballot, so there is NO EXTRA EXPENSES involved in having another election!

3) Not really sure why you mentioned about each District electing their own Commissioners, uhmmmm I think we all knew that already?!?!?

1) It does NOT exist in Fentress County, that's why we need to GET IT ADDED on the ballot in 2014!!

2) Why are you against term limits?

3) At least we agree on something.

joker, the same law code we have to day was added to the charter by the attorney we paid over $15,000.00 for. If the attorney put that number into the charter, are you saying the attorney from Nashville does not know the law??? If you go back to the Giles County charter AND the working draft for the Fentress County charter, There are NO TCA codes in either charter. The Fentress county charter has those codes in the final copy, put there by the expensive attorney. Are you saying the attorney does NOT know the law????? enough is enough. we no longer can depend on anything you say, because no matter what is right, you tell people its WRONG..
