Scottie Poarch for County Mayor

We need a positive change for Mayor.

If you don't like who's running, Man up and run yourself. Get in the race.

One thing for sure is that we don't need the same people running Lewisburg. This place is in worse shape than it was 20 years ago when I was in high school.

I say give somebody else a chance to try. Liggett isn' t getting it done.

This place is so buddy-buddy. nobody can run against anyone and put them to shame because they all have things to hide. We need fresh blood, someone who would want a real open debate. Someone who will ask the question, what have you done in 2 terms and is that enough? Someone needs to see if we are better now than we were then and not accept the fact everyone is struggling, because they are not. We are pretty much as bad as it gets and if they can not admit it, well there is another problem. People here are too gullible. They scare them about the big bad yankees are coming, the yankees are coming.

Who is Mr. Scottie Poarch? Is he a Church of Christ member? It seems they are in control of County Government.

(Pertaining to Marshall County Mayor Election of 2014)
Scottie Poarch is a hard-working man. He works 40+ hours a week, but still manages to give his undivided attention to his family. He is the exact opposite of lazy. He is honest. He doesn't sugar-coat things, and isn't afraid to stand up for his beliefs. Scottie Poarch worked his way up in life. He definitely did not grow up with money. He wants this county to grow. Although he did not win the election in 2010, he still works hard to better this county. When he sees me, he encourages me to teach in Marshall County after I get my degree. I want him to become mayor because he will improve the education system. I went to school in Marshall County my whole life, and trust me I know the problems. Teachers do not want to teach here because of the corruptness and lack of proper management. If things do not change, I may not want to teach here either. This county must change! We need new leadership. Scottie Poarch will make a difference. I can guarantee it. Because of his hard-working and honest attitude, Scottie Poarch will make an excellent mayor.

Poarch is not honest but that's what most people in Lewisburg want and Mr Liggett is not the greatest mayor but he has always been straight with me when I went to him with concern or problem. I've talked to Mr. Poarch and he lied to me both times concerning the landfill . Anybody who went to the expansion vote knew he only cares about himself and not the citizens of Marshall county.

if someone grows up with money it does not make them any less qualified or capable of doing great job. In fact the love of money is the root of all evil not the possession of money. I'm sure he has many positive attributes but you keep saying honesty is one of them when all the people that attended all the waste management expansion meetings were shown a public display of his "honesty" similar to the honesty of Bill Clinton, Ray Blanton, Jake Butcher, Don Sundquist and Terry Wallace. He would only be new leadership in the fact that he is different from the current leadership.

Has any of those County Public Offices been opened back up on Saturday, to serve the working and out of town people who have to take off work to get their public business done?

Will if elected to a third term in Marshall County get themselves County taxpayer paid medical and county retirment for life?

Has the County Debt been reduced?

Has the County Property Taxes been reduced?

What has been done in the last 8 years?

How much has the Mayor's Office paid in the Last 8 years if at lets say $70,000.00 a year is that over $500.000.00 plus benifits?

Wasn't it Poarch who voted to expand it the last vote?
Yes he did. Everyone needs to research the past voting history of the candidates before making a decision.

Not real sure but think
Didn't Liggett vote for the Lewisburg Dump to be sold to Waste Managment or Cedar Ridge years ago when he was on the county commission?
Did Poarch years ago when he was on the county commission vote to allow it to expand?

Does it really make any different now, for both are done deals, The Regional Dump is here, it's expanding, Lewisburg is known as a Regional Dump Town, seems like nothing can be done, might as well make the best of it!

Marshall County has the 4th highest property tax rate in the state. Only Davidson, Shelby and Trousdale county have higher tax rates. Yes the residents of Marshall County have a property tax rate higher than Williamson County. I think 8 years is enough of JBL. At least Scott is fresh blood. And let's clean house with the commissioners too.

Here's the link to the property tax info. Check the facts and then decide.

I met Scottie today and believe he is sincere about turning this county around. He has two new votes.

Where is a picture in the paper of any and all Marshall County pubic officials who save out of the taxpayer's public's department's their yearly budget, turning back to the County Budget director the extra like the was said the Sheirff was to have done for every year he been in office?

Has the County Mayor been in 8 years and 2 terms at more than $70,000.00 a year, plus benifits adding up to over $500,000.00 over all those 8 years?

Shall the taxpayer's of Marshall County continue to pay for all the years public officials want then pay retirement and medical for the rest of their lives?
Is the County Budget for that office yearly over $140,000.00 a year how much did the Mayor turn back to the county budget director yearly Saved of the Taxpayer money, Saved not used, like the Sheriff did ?

Should those public offices like the Mayor's, be life time jobs for rich well body people to hog, getting paid more than the average wage earners of Marshall County retire and the taxpayers pay them for the rest of their life?

Actually it makes a huge deal. I know we get used to hearing the promises and voting for the name but what they say they are going to do and the actions they take after election should let us as citizens realize what type of representation we are ALLOWING for our town. This Waste Management deal is going to come back and bite us in the future. I am not saying anything negative about any candidates except research their voting history.

Well which would you recomend to vote for, tell us if you know something for we all need to be well informed before election time!

Just because somone votes years ago for something, don't always mean they would vote that way again, maybe they realized things did not turn out the way they were told or though at that time.

2 terms / 8 years these so called public offices should not be seen as "lifetime jobs for any", If for no other reasons than checks and balances, to help keep public officals all a litle more honest and give others a chance to be apart of the people's government vote for change!
1. Are the County Court House Offices opened back up on Saturday to serve the people?
2. Has the Regional Dump been stopped from expanding?
3. Has the Mayor's office returned any unused Budget money, like the County Sheriff has done for every year of his frirst term of 4 years he been Sheriff?
4. What Liggett done name a few bridges after people, gave a good speech to the Veterians, got his picture in the paper, just what he done in the last 8 years, that would make any man worthy of 4 more years as County Mayor?
