So basically Hill has no opposition. Fred Phillips did not win and Todd Smith who had many city leaders backing did not win. This guy from his site would really be too liberal for area.

I dont know about confirmed socialist but confirmed idiot, yes. This guy will only be beat by a strong republican candidate who is willing to have the guts to question the Hill family ties and ethics(lack of).

come on, you don't even know what you're talking about. Hill has done great things for our area. He gets done what needs to get done, simple as that.

Fer instance, Rep. Matthew Hill needed to get his father - radio evangelist Kenneth C. Hill - hired on at a "great" $150,000 per year (and only weeking in Nashville two days of every month) by the State of Tennessee as a new director of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority - get er done, Matthew, get er done!

Hey, GShark...did you know that TNGA Rep. Matthew Hill (who was been a member of the Tennessee House Transportation Committee since 2004) never once filed a formal protest against President Bush for rescinding federal funding to the Tennessee Department of Transportation - that is to say, Rep. Matthew "Get 'er done" Hill never formally protested the Bush Administration taking away federal tax dollars promised in prior years and collected from sources such as the federal gasoline tax every time that you fill up your car at the gas station:

federal fund rescissions by federal fiscal year from 2004 through 2009
(the federal fiscal year starts October 1 and ends on September 30 of the fiscal year).

Rescissions by year:

FY '04 -$24,889,226

FY '05 - 25,829,800

FY '06 - 79,598,343

FY '07 - 91,835,346

FY '08 - 66,349,673

FY '09 - 256,298,720

Yeah...get 'er done, Matthew, get 'er done!

Yes, Comrade Hill is a confimed, big-time, money-grubbing socialist who is wanting to take away $400,000 in state tax revenues collected in Jonesborough each year for 20 years and make this money available exclusively for loan and grant to private business owners in downtown Jonesborough - say for example, downtown Jonesborough coffee shop owners - taking away limited state dollars being applied to places such as East Tennessee state univeristy!

This law is not needed - place a special assessment on the downtown property owners to cover all the costs that these people are wanting all other free thinking Tennesseans to pay!

HB 2682 by *Hill (*SB 2547 by *Crowe)
Municipal Government - As introduced, enacts "Courthouse Square Revitalization and Tourism Development Zone Act." - Amends TCA Title 6.

Bill Summary
http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/billinfo/Bill...

This bill authorizes the governing body of Jonesborough, in Washington County, to designate the boundaries of a courthouse square revitalization and tourism development zone by adoption of an ordinance or resolution. The zone must generally be within approximately 700 feet of the courthouse property or within a business district in a downtown historic zone or property in which a public arts facility is located within a downtown historic zone that is approved and certified by the department of finance and administration as meeting the requirements of this bill.

Under this bill, sales and use tax revenue would be apportioned and distributed to Jonesborough, if Jonesborough contains such a zone, in an amount equal to the amount of such revenue devised from sales or use of goods, products, and services within the zone. The amount so distributed to Jonesborough must be used exclusively for maintaining and improving the viability of the courthouse square and tourism development zone area through any means deemed appropriate by the governing body of Jonesborough, including making loans or grants to any public or private person, entity or association for the use of infrastructure, marketing, economic development and other purposes related to revitalization and tourism development.

Hopefully Hill's Jonesborough socialist bill will never see the light of day - what Hill is attempting to do is divert $400,000 in state tax revenues each year from local state entities (e.g.: East Tennessee State Univeristy, Northeast State, TDOT regional office, Tennessee Highway Patrol, etc.) and set up some Jonesborough municipal slush fund that he can help dole out to his buddies...

I am conservative and an Independent. I grew up in Bristol and have lived in J.C. for ten years. I love it here and this is my home. I am an ETSU alum and I met with Todd. He admitted he saw an opportunity and moved here to take the job. He is no Independent and he has no ideas, he does not know our community. He is here to ride the wave of opposition to Matt Hill, he saw an opportunity and jumped on it. Todd is telling people what he is being told by his advisers. Most of his support is coming from Unions. He is a partisan ranger and will not represent us in Nashville. Todd is an ambitious opportunist. He is not right for Washington County.

Todd does have some ideas also. He is a family man and he cares about the community and maybe he would be a better job than Hill. He is not a Partisan. Anything I have posted here has not been done to hurt Todd and his family I just believe he is not the best candidate.

I have been asked by several people why I am running as an Independent, I believe there is disappointment on both sides.

I am not sure who is posting these things on the internet but it needs to stop its not anywhere even near November, and this is not helping the cause of trying to replace Mathew.
