Lewisburg Needs Change

Columbia, TN

#1 Dec 29, 2012
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?

Lest we may forgot how our freedom came!

Does even the County Mayor Know, how some of the so called elected officials do?

Even to the point do some even question the local election process?

Could any who believe the way the forefathers of America did even get elected in Lewisburg or Marshall County

Don't waste your typing time with this idiot. Trying to explain or tell this nut anything is a waste of your time. All he knows to do is ask endless stupid questions. No matter how often you try to explain, he never gets it and just repeats the same stupid questions again or a variation of them. I'm hoping he is not a certified paranoid schizophrenic cause he certainly seems to have it out for certain political people.

Just a while ago, read a post about someone named Dalton for city council and wandered back to the original post on this thread. Yes, taxes in this county are the 5th highest in the state(95) counties. Name the four largest metropolitan areas, yep, they are ahead of us and city council meetings are somewhat less than American.
I remember when the FBI set up phony computer businesses in the four main cities of this state and putting several politicians in prison for corrupt sales from public offices. The FBI commented that they have to "clean it up" every four years. I remember George Blanton and money for clemency, my point, Nashville does not elect local people as politicians, especially mayors because of this.
Does this go on here?

Yes, I believe Marshall County taxes are 5th highest in the state behind the 4 major metro areas but not the city of Lewisburg. Lewisburg city taxes have not increased in over 20 years. Seems as if the city has been living within its tax revenue whereas the county can not say the same time. If any investigation needs to be done for possible corruption it should be on the county not city and if I am correct I think Dalton is running for the city not county. Dalton by the way has been arrested on traffic violations at least once in the last year and maybe twice in the last few years. Doesn't seem to be a good resume to me. They were not for speeding or running a red light I am told. As to your question Nashville gov't is now a part of Metro gov't for Davidson County. This took place back in the 1960's when Beverly Briley was Mayor. Yes, they do elect there leaders today but the Mayor is chosen from the whole county because of the Metro Gov't in place. Then they have a County Metro Council that is the same as most cities county and city councils combined. Answer, Yes they do elect their public officials just like us.
