The fact of the matter is that I don't think you can make Kingsport any better than it already is. Kingsport is already a town with so much to offer, we have 200 churches and two Wal-Marts, what more do you want? Seriously.

Personally, I think Kingsport is the greatest place on earth. The city has worked very diligently over the past several years in revitalizing the downtown area. Downtown used to be very dilapidated, in fact it looked just like Bristol. But now look at how gorgeous it is; now all of the downtown area has been rebuilt and remodeled, and we now have the prettiest vacant buildings you can find anywhere in the Tri-Cities.

Friendly people, 4 equally balanced seasons, moderate climate, beautiful country sides, mountains, creeks and lakes. Low crime rates, minor traffic congestion. Decent educational system, with an university nearby. Adequate healthcare system. Ample recreation and exercising venues. Worship as you please, you have many choices. Good variety of restaurants. Kingsport has all these good qualities, but what could make it better would be a better job market for all, especially the younger people.

I wish I had moved to KP instead of Rogersville years ago. But unfortunately I didn't know the area to know any better. While Rogersville had ruined beautiful TN for me and I am moving asap, I have to say that kp has grown and is a very nice well maintained, friendly area with much to do.

Better jobs , better pay, better benefits. Especially for young people/people just out of college.

Also need to be more fair towards hiring new people and quit relying on the good ol boy system where you have to know somebody who knows somebody to get into the good jobs/bigger compaines.

EOE doesn't mean much around here.Just look at MSHA's latest announcement.

I am not saying it's like that at every employer in Kingsport but I have lived here my whole life and experienced it more than once.

I love the beauty of the area and the seasons,etc.

I like a lot of things about Kingsport, but the good old boy network makes doing business there a lot harder than it is in either Bristol or Johnson City.

Hell I wish more people hated us. That's right. It's a complete hell hole here, people! Stay the F out! Go back to where you came from! It's polluted, it's crowded, there's good ole boys everywhere, drugs, under aged pregnancies, worst health and allergies anywhere, and the worst kind of crazy drivers you'll find this side of the Mason Dixon.

Get off our over crowded highways and take your snooty arse attitudes with you. You wanna make Kingsport a better place? LEAVE. Hate us! PLEASE! And take this piece of solid waste process product with you as a token of our lack of appreciation.

Great place if your a white male , over the age of 55, been married for 30 years and had 3 affairs during that time while being a deacon in the church. They have no quams about backhanding the ole lady if she burns the bisquits yet is the first to show up at a Chamber of Commerce luncheon and eat that dog shit they serve. In spite of that that its better than Johnson city and Bristol. P.S. chances are they have scores of relatives in Scott, Lee, and Wise County Va. And you wonder why the Republican party is in disaray.

The Republican party is having problems because their message is no longer getting traction with the American public, especially the younger generation. The reason is simple: the current makeup and sentiments of most Americans no longer reflect the values and traditions our country was founded on. Christianity and patriotism. Working hard, paying your own way. And, most importantly, speaking fucking English. People today would rather not earn their keep or provide for their own families, they would much rather stay home all day playing video games and collecting food stamps and WIC out of the hands of a black president.

Young people today are the worst; they have absolutely no respect, integrity, discipline, or work ethic; this is one of the reasons why all the jobs have went overseas to China where people still work for a living and believe in family values and important cultural traditions. Seriously, look at how degraded our system of values has become, especially under this president.

Look back to the 50's and 60's and you will see how great this country used to be. Do you think that your parents or grand parents would have elected someone like Obama to office? Someone that disgraceful? On election day this country gave God and values the middle finger in favor of gifts from Obama. And you know what? This is something that our children and grandchildren will have to pay for (the ones that aren't aborted, of course).

Your state lawmaker is Tony Shipley. When your leaders are godless, immoral, unethical essentially bigoted gang members, then God will turn his back away from Kingsport.

He protects people fhat harm the elderly. If that's your leader? Then the town you live in is Sodom. Ad it's on it's way to hell.
