Just read the Lebanon News where Joseph Puckett voted to terminate the County Attorney Dennis Jones. Is he trying to get his sister (Martha Puckett Ketron) that job?????????

Jon Bowerbank, Shy Kennedy, and JOSEPH PUCKETT, we are ashamed of you after all that Dennis Jones has done for this county. Even though he bought a home on the golf course in Abingdon, he still pratices law and pays property tax in Russell County. Whats the problem with these 3 losers???
Dennis Jones has covered up more shit for this county than a little but I guess they forgot about that.
One thing about it; everything goes around comes back around so when these 3 Supervisors run again, we will vote you out tooo.

what are u talking about? Dennis Jones has been the County Attorney too damn long, it's time we let some of these other attorneys in town have a job as County Attorney and if its Martha Puckett Ketron thats okay, she is a good Attorney and will do a great job.

Was this the Dennis Jones who was previously the Commonwealth's Attorney for Russell County and his x-wife had him locked up for not paying child support??
In my opinion, he needed to go a long time ago. Besides, if Punk Dorton had not of passed away he had an investigation going where Dennis Jones was paying his wife $90.00 to write a damn receipt for the county. Dennis Jones has robbed this county with a pencil and no one had enough ass to do anything about it because he covered up all their damn shit.
I think its time to go MR. DENNIS JONES and Joseph Puckett you have my vote if you get rid of him, regardless who you elect as County Attorney.

The County has kept Dennis Jones up tooo long and its time the other attorney's have a term at it.

Dont tell me they are trying to put another Puckett in a County position. Are these people never satisfied? Talk about coveting jobs seems to me they are the ones that are coveting jobs with our County. Phillip Puckett and Mike Puckett needs to go. what do these people know on this county that they are putting their whole family in a position. Sounds to me like they are trying to take the "power" from the mafia crew in Castlewood and bring it back to Lebanon with the Puckett's.
Dennis Jones has served this county well as County Attorney but I guess they want to put Phillip's daughter Martha Puckett Ketron in that position too.
Its time to clean this county up with all the democrats and Republicans and put Independent people in who really care for the county instead of just putting them in for all the money they can rob from the people who work and pay taxes in this County. Its a damn shame you have to drive 100 miles out of your county you live in just to get you a job much less keep all the Puckett's in. Rick Boucher its time for him to go too.

i haven't seen dennis jones sell any land in the past 5 years for back taxes, all other counties do it. i have been told that this is part of his job for the county i wonder if all the landowners in russell county are such good honest people that they all pay taxes so sell the land that back taxes are against. or maybe jones' friends buy up all this land for what is owed against it in taxes and sell it for some easy cash, just a thought

Are you serious. Read your own post. Why on earth would you want a county attorney that covers stuff up? That's what is wrong with this county in the first place. I think it's great that these three men are finally doing the job no one else has had the balls to do for years. Get a real attorney for a change, who cares if its Martha Puckett if she is good.

Can I ask, what happened to Dennis Jones since 1985? That is when I moved and at that time everyone seemed to like him.
I knew him very well and he always seemed like a good man. Maybe something did happen, just wondering what is was.

He was Commonwealth's Attorney for Russll County and his X-wife put him in jail during that time for child-support but he's been County Attorney since then. Jim Gillispie retired and they are getting new board members like Joseph Puckett (Senator Phillip Puckett's son) who is trying to make a job for Phillip's daughter Martha Puckett Ketron who is also an attorney. Phillip already has have his family working in the Circuit Court Clerk's office and made Mike Puckett his brother the Supertendent of Russell County School after Dr Turner passed away. So.basically the Pucketts is trying to run the county with all the jobs.
In addition, Dennis sold his home in Green Valley Estates and move to Washington County on the golf course so he is not a resident of Russell County now but he still practices law here in town and is now currently the County Attorney. The bottom line they are trying to get all the power out of Castlwood and get it back in Lebanon.
Read online the article on board of Supervisor's meeting where Sky Kennedy, Jon Bowerbank, and Joseph Puckett voted to terminate Dennis Jones and Mr. Frank Keene, Bill Wampler, and Danny Brown (who lives in Tenn now) voted to keep him. They are trying to get rid of him now that Jim has retired
I hope he tells everything he knows on all of them. Their time is coming when they will be voted out. The Puckett family is running the whole county now.

actually, the motion was to replace jones with bud phillips. with gillespie leaving, i think a new county attorney would be a good idea. what they need is a full time attorney as an employee, and quit wasting our tax dollars on 5 different attorneys for all the county business (water boards, DSS, IDA, Planning Commission, Supervisors).

Mr.Gillispie is still on the job! I just spoke with him in person today after lunch. I know he is going to retire in the near future and the job was advertised.

No fan of nepotism, but lots of room for improvement there if you know what I mean. Even a Puckette relation would be better.

Jim Gillispie is not still out there, They have Alice filling in until they can get one of the Puckett's in the County Administrator's position. I know, I attended Jim's retirement party, DUMB ASSES!
