Is this a joke? I've dealt with him over a serious issue that he should have addressed. He didn't even have the courtesy to return my call.

He has no business running for mayor, in my opinion. The whole family is in politics, his aunt Alpha Bridger, and his aunt Janet Willis. His mother Canna Rutherford Broad, now deceased, was always into politics. Her long time boyfriend was Stanley Keebler, need I say more.

Michael P. Rutherford is Washington County's Zoning Administrator and is a complete waste of taxpayers money. He turned his back on my family when we needed his help.

Rutherford has proven to be quite useless as a Zoning Administrator. He talks a big game but gets NOTHING done.

Mr. Rutherford was interviewed on Channel 11 tonight, and several things he alleged against Mr. Eldridge were proven incorrect by a fact check done by the TV station. Mr. Eldridge is the only choice, the best, by a country mile.

Maybe my memory is wrong, but was he once married to Gina Rutherford? Wasn't she on tv years back being led away, under arrest, from her county job? If I am wrong, someone correct me please.

You people are really stooping to a new low if someone his mom dated, who was a honest businessman in the area for decades, is a disqualification in your estimation.

Mike was married to Gina. She is the mother of his son. I remember Stanley Keebler being an owner of "slum" property.

You have that right! How did he ever get the job he has anyway? From what I hear he is not doing a good job. Why can he not be removed? Mayor? I don't think so. He has a lot of gall to run.

You make a point. Problem is it's on the top of your head. Keebler is deceased and whether or not he owned property not up to your standards is laughable. The man you love so much, and apparently intend to vote for, has friends who simply burn down their properties so they do not fall into disrepair.

I certainly do intend to vote for Dan Eldridge. He is a great man. You are very ignorant to accuse people of arson. I am positive that Dan's friends do not have "slum" property, like Stanley Keebler owned. I am a friend of Dan's, and my rental property is kept in immaculate condition. I figure you are someone in Mike's family. I have been the recipient of unkind acts by an associated party, so I am not at all surprised by your dumb remarks.

Doesn't surprise me at all. He's a bag of wind.

Mike absolutely will not win. He won't even hear the gun go off. I have known the family for years, often estranged from each other, can't get along. He had to go outside the family to get someone to sit with his dying mother because she was estranged from her sister's. Mike is a joke. Mayor, really? I don't think so. We have a fine mayor in Eldrige, and we will still have him after the election. Dan is a good family man, respected, and admired.
