from the Plain Talk
"However, the five incumbent members of the Board of Aldermen, all of whom qualified for re-election, face opposition from numerous political hopefuls.

The current aldermen-John M. Bugg, Luke Goddard, Fred L. Gregg, Jr., Kenny Morgan, and Dennis C. Thornton-will be opposed by Amanda Belton, Seth Butler, Bill Costner, Keith Fine, Blaine Hartsell, Jr., Kathy Holt, Donald Large, William E. Lewis, Pamela R. Lunsford, James L. Pruitt, Larry "Yogi" Shelton, and Linda White.

Of the five people elected to the board, one will then be named vice-mayor."

Ok, so out of 17 possible candidates what 5 are you voting for?
Let's hear it.....

Not Goddard, can anyone say CONFLICT OF INTEREST. I say Butler, Shelton, Hartsell, Holt, and keep Dennis Thornton. He is the only one now that will kind of speak up for what he thinks, even though I don't always agree. It seems like the rest of them are scared of Scott Collins, who by the way bankrupted another city in his previous position and was recommended not to be hired by MTAS because of his inability to perform the job. Of course Goddard wanted his for easy control.

city girl,you really are narrow minded,even if what you say is true about the Deputy this has nothing to do with a "kin" and you also stated that you don't even know if they are really related.You also started this thread yesterday;
Luke Goddard city mayor 2010
and your comment was;
