This next commissioner election in Washington County, TN will be a clean sweep. The internal politics is between the "good ole boys” and the "progressives"
We elected candidates to the Washington County Commission - for the purpose of bringing that quasi government organization, into the 21st century. Basic issues that have been ignored in years past- such as nepotism, reduction of rented office space; behind the scenes games; pre meeting vote collection (aka violation of the sunshine law); decisions like health care insurance for commissioners; refusing to reduce the number of commissioners; total lack of understanding of industrial growth; and other assorted embarrassing events.

Not only was this political group unable to progress on any of these issues, but they cannot even figure out how to rid the courthouse of pigeons.

I would like to know the names of the commissioners that have county insurance but their only job with the county is serving as a Washington County commissioner before I vote again .

Washington county officials play the same games as all other officials. Small example..... The county had moved all their waste collection to the new landfill in blountvile. Telling citizens that they are saving money. I know Waste Management gave them a price that would beat the new landfill by 30k a year. Yet Dan Eldridge is still set on the new landfill because his "buddies" are involved. It's all a game. 30k may not sound like much but it IS TAX dollars being wasted.
