She should have been 911 director but since she got screwed out of that, why not be mayor? Can't be any worse than Moore, would be better. Bring in new ideas. Moore just wanted some position no matter what it was....

So why was she going to be fired Einstein?

Does she have any qualifications for the job? Does being an interim prepare you for a job of such a degree? Will this be an embarrassment to her when election polls are closed? I can't imagine anyone other than family and friends voting for someone so young and inexperienced.

Did Vaughn "i have ran for everything" Moore have any qualifications? He got a position pretty much by default because nobody else was running. She definitely would be better or could not be any worse, she is smart and would bring new ideas to our county unlike him. I wish her luck and will be voting for her, she was done wrong at 911, to put Nancy Keener Valentine Hansel in as director, what a political move and BIG mistake, everyone will see.

She is connected to alot of rednecks that do no vote on a regular basis or never have. She may be able to get some votes that are not normally available in our county elections from that group of citizens.

That's not true-Betty Carver was his opponent. She has been involved in many areas of local government aside from the fact she was Mayor McMahan's administrative assistant so yes he had competition. The 'bring new ideas' statement has to backed up by the ability to know how the process of implementing the steps to reach her goals is done of which I've been told that she has no experience in her back ground to be capable of this. Just because someone is mad that they didn't get the job they wanted doesn't mean they're capable of running a county. She can run and probably embarrass herself as I doubt anyone of merit will vote for her except as someone says the redneck audience. Wonder how many of them are registered to vote or even can vote? Maybe she'll add some excitement during the election and get people interested in politics. I don't know who's running or even if Mr Moore is seeking a second term so who knows how it'll go. But I doubt this young lady has a chance if she has a capable opponent running.

I had no experience when I started my career either, but I'm very good at it. Dont discount her just because of experience. I applaud a young person especially a woman for seeing something that needs changing and being willing to try to change it. Whether she wins or loses, as least she is standing for something she believes in and that matters to her. I just wish more young people felt this way and if they did our country would be in a very different position right now.

Betty Carver was as close to no competition as you could get. Yes she was there but that was all. The only thing she did was smile and sleep around.

That was exactly what I meant too, when I said he had no competition. Some people just can't read between the lines, I guess.

Maybe jobs can go to people who deserve them instead of embarrassments to the community.

It has to do with the poster remarking that Betty slept around.
