So let me get this straight. Tilman Coins ousted Joe Swann who has dedicated his life to service for Hamblen for what reason. Could it be purely politics because Joe attends a local church with Tilmans foe Don Miller. Tillman not available for comment Is Joe under investigation for wrong doing. Is Joe up on charges for something. Something fishy. 10th District Shining again. Great Job Tilman

It all has to do with the letter of Joe's political affiliation. He has a big D beside his name. It is a shame that Tillman is playing politics with someone has done nothing but good for Hamblen County. Mr. Swann has served for free and because he doesn't have the R beside his name, he is ousted. Partisan politics at its finest.

Joe is a Republican that can work beyond party lines. Look at the comments in the paper from his Democratic Constituents. The Party of Lincoln is a sinking ship and this is a fine example of why.

Has Tilman Goind given any response as to why he made this decision?

Joe made some pretty crazy remarks a few years ago about how things are run in Morristown and this was probably from that. It is funny how Steve Southerland was too afraid to comment on the situation and deferred comment to Tilman. I guess Southerland was too busy figuring out how to wrong the people he represents instead of making a statement about the situation.

You are dumb. Joe Swann is a Republican. If a democrat was suppose to be appointed to the chair it would have probably been Dwaine Evans since he has been in the past.

Tilman held his grudge till he could pull the trigger. It was his recommendation to remove Joe Swann from the Election commission during a meeting in Nashville Monday. He doesn't have to answer for the decision as no politician have to answer for their actions. It is up to the citizens to remove Tilman from office when the time comes. I will pay more attention to his actions and record in Nashville. Check his facebook page and see what he does. He is in the public eye and chose that exposure.
This is not the type person we need representing Hamblen County in Nashville. Poor Hamblen County

Tilman did not oust Joe Swann, he simply reported the fact that Joe had campaigned for Don Miller during the election and as a member of the election commission he is forbidden to do that.If you want say Tilman ratted him out ,that would be more accurate.

Joe Swann did not campaign for Don Miller. Joe Attends church with Don and has known Don for years. I guess it's guilt by association. It's plain a simple a grudge Tilman held until he got the opportunity to do something about it. You get what you give and winds of change will blow again. Enjoy your stay Tilman because its short lived

I am not stupid, Anything but. I did not say Tilman hates any church. It does not surprise me one bit that plenty of Tilman supporters go to Manley Baptist Church and also doesn't surprise me that you as a Manley Attendee tell me how stupid I am. I and my Family attended Manley Baptist Church for over 30 years until people like you started coming. Did you pledge 12 years ago to Reach the World with the expansion. Did you have the purpose Driven Life. Guess What

Let's me say this Tillman Goins doesn't belong in Nashville. He is a redneck. Also he married the 1st woman he slept with. His supporters are all family.

As a matter of Fact I do know. I am connected to Nashville. Enough said.

AS for the Cess pool getting cleaned up. Joe Swann was the only election commission official in the states not reassigned besides a criminal from Cock County.

Are you saying Joe Swann was the Cess in the Pool. If so you are the idiot and studid MF in anyones eyes that knows Joe Swann.

Of course you don't think you're stupid. The fact is, you know not what you are talking about and are trying to attribute a reason without knowing the facts. That makes you ignorant by definition, and stupid in most people's eyes.
Truth is, most will be glad to see the election office finally getting cleaned up. That place has been a cess pool for corruption ever since this regime took over.
Hey if you're buying that Manley crap you have to be pretty dumb yourself.

You must be a garbageman cause that's what you're talking a bunch of garbage the citizens of Hamblen co. Voted, Tillman in Nashville and if it is true that he married the first girl that he slept with he has a lot of morals that's what we need in Nashville

If it wasn't for Tillmans family voteing for him he would have lost. The Goins family are the biggest crocks in Hamblen Co.
