Sure hope someone runs for Mayor / City Council who won't take what they are given and keep their mouth shut!

This Town needs more open!
Government!
Of the people, by the people and for the people!

People who are willing to check and double check know when people are the city might be overcharged!

Lower Property Taxes Hire only one per city residents family members, and hire only city residents children!

Let those who own property within the city limits vote in the city election where they live within or not!

Should any public officials who don’t want to sit for more than three minutes in a public meeting and listen to the people ask questions or speak, they may or may not agree with, say what the people have to say do they need to be a public official?

Those who would say “should take what they gave you and keep your mouth shut “ and can’t give to all the same should they be in public office?
Is that what local Marshall County and Lewisburg has become, a town and County where some are taking what they can get or given keeping their mouths shut while the rest pay more than their fair share?

Does Lewisburg / Marshall County have some of the highest property taxes in the State, deep county and department city taxpayer debts, a Major Regional Dump, extra customer charges, high utility rates? Where can city department heads hand out raises to their family and so called friends, over charge the people, even the city itself for years and then some even say,“ hey we over charged a few hundred thousand dollar and does any public officials ask if the public was over charged also? Do all they want to do is accept the so called overcharge and spend that, on beautifying the town? How about giving it back or dividing it equal among the other rate payers? Lowering all’s electric bills?

Could it been millions of dollars or could the other customers also been over charged, what public officials even asked?

Any public officials who would threaten to use their power as elected officials, to threaten and intimidate the public from speaking at those so called public meeting does any need to be in public office, teaching school or called an American?
Does any think the forefathers of this county have rolled over in their graves from the self made up rules any so called public officials” public servants in Lewisburg / Marshall County made up for themselves used against the public at their so called self controlled public meetings?

Is the only voice the public has now Topic, and the local paper that tells or prints the truth?

So are you saying when any ask question they are ignorant? Who is the ignorant if children in school ask questions would the teacher or those who know then calls them ignorant?

Does public officials want people preceived as ignorant, if they ask questions of their public officials?

Is it a shame to not know or to know, cover up and not inform the public when any are public officials?

Do the ones with all the answers fail the public, when they don't answer the public's questions?
Are they elected to protect the public or gang together, protect the local public officials and refuse the public's questions?

Is this Russia or China?

I am sure greater men have been called, crazy, ignorant and etc. for asking questions, than those who think they have and know all the answer!
Don't you think it is better to be ignorant than smart know all the answers and go to hell?

Will people have a better chance of going to Heaven for being ignorant, not knowing, asking questions or being a smart ass and knowing all the answers?

questions for thought

Lewisburg, TN

#21 Dec 29, 2012
Is Tom Sumners a county commissioner at this time? At one time, was he not the chairman of the county commission and made most of the commissioners mad about so many issues and the members voted him out of the chairmanship. What makes him think he can do a better job as the city mayor where he would not even have a vote unless it was a tie. Word on the street is he once said that McRady was the only person dealing with city government that had any sense. That should disqualify him from ever being able to run for anything. One last thing, didn't Mayor Woods take him off the city cemetery board after serving less than one year? Seems like this might be trouble for the city if he is a running buddy of McRady.

This website only rates county governments and does not have a grading system in place at this time for city governments. It is true that the Marshall County government( I guess they are talking about the county commission) has been given a grade a "F" but this does not apply to the city governments of Lewisburg, Cornersville, or chapel Hill. Would not count on Sumners to fix anything in the city since he has not done a very good job on the county commission in my opinion. Was he one of the commissions that voted to pay over $70,000 for property just off the square that was appraised at just over $45,000? Heard they were going to use it for a county employee parking lot. M.C. paid way to much money for that property to use it for a parking lot but again it wasn't there personal money but just our tax money.

Bob is not a private citizens name or it belongs to oodles of other Bobs so technically, it's not your private name that we or I know of. Unless you have identified yourself as such, you could be Joe Smoe for all I care. I just wish you would stop posting on everyone's topics with your silly questions that are not helping. You ask too many questions and give no answers. We need answers not more questions no matter how much YOU think they may generate ideas. All they do is annoy others who just skip over them anyway. I am just one of many that wish you would stop asking nothing but questions and instead just communicate your thoughts, but not over and over and unrelated to the topic.
amen
