Its funny that one of those council members that voted him out, their vote should be invalid because they do not even live in the city limits! Its a shame that the 3 council members that voted him out only did that becuase of personal issues with him. Scott did a really good job as city administrator. People dont realize all the things that he has started and the things he worked on really has helped our town in the long run. It takes time to fix a town that was left to ruins. He was working very hard to repair and create great things for this town.

He brought one job. His wife. Who started at more salary than people who had worked for the City for ten years. Now THAT is Scott Collins. About time our Council grew some balls. Thanks Kathy and all who voted to say BYE BYE. It was past due.

Byebye=Kathy Holt. Kathy quit hiding behind fake names. Everyone knows you're a Topix regular. Too bad you choose to hide behind fake names. As far as him bringing things to Newport, its the mayors job to do that, not Scott's.

No her vote shouldn't count and she should be held accountable but as we all know money talks and lord knows she is a big talker! She said she lives on Ratcliff Street but we all know she lives in the county and the law states that you must reside in the city to qualify for City Alderman. Just sayin

Actually your wrong about that part too. It's don hurst and the partnership to bring jobs to Newport. But I can say that they tried to bring a prison to cocke county but no one wanted here because they were scared. That would have brought in 1,000 jobs but no the people didn't want it. People in cocke county do not want change that is why it will never move forward.

Oh Maurice better watch his back. Kathy really don't like him so I'd say she will get him fired next.

lets face it everyone there is not going to be Change in Cocke County until we set some guidelines for the positions of authority. When you have these good ole boys who couldnt even balance their own checkbooks trying to run our city then disaster is going to strike. We need to get rid of the good ole boy network and appoint people into positions of authority that are educated and have a good head on their shoulders and that would be a start. Anyone that had set down with Scott that knew anything about finances knew he didnt have a clue what he was doing.

That's such bull crap Scott was educated in what he was hired for. He had over 20 years of experience before he ever came to Newport. Newport wanted him so bad they got him to move her for that position. And as far as "not doin him job" as some people have said, Scott did his job and for a matter of fact he's the one that got smoky mtn moonshine, popcorn suttons moonshine and the Davy Crockett place like gatlinburg has to come open up here. Plus he got the showcase on the river festival started and he also got the recognition of the employee of the month started too. So everybody that's bad mouthing him just needs to leave him alone. He done nothing wrong.

Oh kathy shut the F up. everybody knows you have been trying to demand that every place in Newport hire your son, but the kicker is we all
know he has (issues). I put in Collins in the search bar and noticed this isn't the first time you have targeted Ms Collins, Whats up with that did she steal a boyfriend from you in highschool. Looks to me like you are dangerously close to harrassment.

So does anybody know what brought this on for him to be fired? Seems like there would have to be a reason.

Here's the real problem: One dummy gets fired only to be replaced by another dummy. I wish it didnt have to be this way but unfortunately thats how things work in this town. Newport is the posterchild for the product of a "family and friends only" local govt. As long as they get paid its all good and to hell with the people they supposedly represent. Its not just this guy though, its the whole lot of them from top to bottom.

We don't need a new library, whose idea was this?

What do u mean we don't need a new library? This town would greatly benefit from a bigger, updated library. I will agree that it's not at the top of the to-do list. I think some of those ratty buildings should be demolished for parking or refurbished to draw potential business rentals. Even if they'd slap a coat of paint on them and at least make them look better.
