I understand that Mark Fergusons opinion, following his huge blunder, was " you know what, I never realized that "Jap" was a deogratory comment"

That was his comment following this statement-
“I’m going to say something that’s not going to be popular,” he said.“We spent $2 million from the General Fund putting two Jap plants in the Industrial Park, and how many have they hired from Washington County?”
Mark Ferguson, Washington County Commissioner and member of the Washington County Industrial board

Does Mark Ferguson realize that his horrible comments that he made at a Washington County Commission meeting regarding two outstanding foreign owned manufacturing companies was widely viewed as a pre meditated anti Semitic statement
likely spoken from the real Mark ferguson......

Why don't you run for a County Commission seat since you seem to know so much about county politics and economics. You also are doing a lot of bashing to a civil servant, so what do you do exactly to enrich this community????? Enlighten us to what benefits this county gets from having you as a citizen?
Under no circumstance, can I support Mark ferguson as a civil servant UnCival maybe. Back room good old boy pushing for a county take over.. I suspect Mark Ferguson will support Michael P. Rutherford, Washington County's Zoning Administrator. I am guessing that the big players in the next Washington County election will be Ferguson, Gerald Sparks and Mike Rutherord.
Keep your eyes open....
