After everything that has happened you would post something like that? That is the exact problem with politics today... I was going to support Laxton.. Now, I really do not know.. What does David offer? I know what Teresa offers, she has a past (good and bad)... What about Robinette?

Folks on here talk about politics like its touch football, well its not, Its more like real hard hitting football. So if you are a vol fan do you and they are playing Bamma do you expect them to be nice and step aside so no one gets hit or bruised. Get over it politics is tough, if your skin isn't you best stay at home. Teresa is a fighter, she will also be a winner.

Kirkham is good for nothing. She wastes our money and does whatever the h#ll she wants. She is sorry and good for nothing and all these people who get on here and talk her up are either up her @ss so far that they can't breathe or it's just Kirkham herself. I wouldn't vote for her if she was the only one running for county janitor. Our taxes have done nothing but gone up ever since I've lived here and yet she rights her and her family's property off as woodland or farmland so their taxes are cheaper. Think I'm making it up? It's all public domain. Do some research and educate yourselves before you vote for the "Good person" that we have as an incumbent. I don't even know the other people running, but I know that one of them will get my vote when the time comes.
