Leeman needs to go. He has a bad attitude and he treats everybody like dirt. I don't know why they don't get rid of him. But maybe this is a step in that direction.

Well I have to agree MOYERS can, and is a butt sometimes, however the CARTERS are no different. LUCAS has zero bussiness on any council or board. The CARTERS are for LBK, think about it, is this how we want our town reported in the news? Heck lets just bring back FROG to go with the CARTERS and BILL KELLEY. They all should be ashamed!!!!

Guess what? The CARTERS were elected!! Which means that people CHOSE them to serve. Did anyone vote Moyers into anything. NO!!

Gees people surley after years of peace we arn't going back to the days of petty bickering. The Carter boys, and Lemon need to grow up! I think all three should resign now. If they really care about Middlesboro that's is what they would do, but if they are there serving themseleves then I guess they will hang on. Grow up or get out...

Leamon Moyers is a joke and needs to be in jail for his actions. Last night is not jail worthy, but everything else he does is. There are pictures and videos of Leamon using city goods for his and his friends' own use. The other officials that have knowledge of this behavior need to be removed as well. To Leamon, buddy, it's way too late to cover your tracks now. Just quit and get ready for prison.

What was the fight about?

I think any "adult" who acts like this at meetings should be made to stand in the corner. Fitting punishment for childish behavior.

These people are an embarrassment to our town.

You can not hear a conversation, and there are many, about Leeman Moyers, that it is not negative. He has been rude to many home owners over tree limbs, etc to be picked up. This has gone on for years. If Hickman is not re-elected, Leeman is clearly one of the reasons. I have personally seen a near physical altercation with Moyers and a home owner over limbs. It was rude, unprofessional, unnecessary, along with profane language used by him, and I, as a tax payer want him out of city business in every sense. I am not a Carter, nor anyone that attended that meeting; just a tax payer not associated with either party who demands Moyers is to go!

I have dealt with Leeman on many different occasions, he is always a prick no matter the situation. It doesn't matter how anyone treats Leeman, he treats everyone the same, no respect at all. He needs to be removed, he is definitely an embarrassment to this city.
Uh huh

I don't know the Carter's, but I do know Moyers and he is a basta**. He thinks his sh** don't stink, like he owns Middlesboro. Somebody needs to beat the he** out of him, bring him down a few notches.

No wonder Middlesboro is crumbling. Your own city council is literally fighting each other. You guys should let them go at it, and charge people to see it. I bet your town wont be deserted than.
HA HA!
