i am very sorry about the way the ignorant people in this pathetic town, residents and aldermen, have treated you. i have met you and you seem nice. i have been in city hall meetings and you have good sense. the city budget is sound. people in this town are jealous of anyone makes more money than they do. i am glad you stood up to the aldermen and put them down. especially that bug-eyed fool johnny bugg. keep up the good work...

It's the unprofessional, ignorant and vile behavior of his accusers that keep this community stuck in neutral or reverse. Here's the kicker -- qualified, competent people can move on, taking their talents with them, leaving the rest of us stuck with hackneyed good ole boys to run our town in the ground. Shame on Gregg, Holt, & Bugg - they need to resign in disgrace.

What exactly has Collins done for Newport to deserve such accolades? Remember that the "accusers" are elected by the people.

I do appreciate the supportive comments, however I have to clarify that Mr Bugg was never involved in this situation. He, to knowledge my has never said a harsh word about me and my family. As more and more comes to the surface it appears that it was an attack by only one council member with a grudge.

the city's finances are in much better shape than the counties. armondo wants to raise taxes in the county for more money to spend. "stop eating out" is his charge against us.'PAY MORE TAXES" so he has more money to spend. and just because the accusers are elected doesn't mean they do no wrong. collins keeps a tight grip on the money, and it shows

I don't read any accolades in this thread. Rather, what I read I'd the expectation for our elected officials to behave in a professional manner. Collins doesn't have to even do a good job to be entitled to proper treatment. If you think he is not meeting expectations, there are proper ways to address that. Accusing him of being on drugs is not one of those ways. Elected officials often do and say things not in alignment with the will of the people. I'm saying -- they need to remember that they're elected AND therefore expected to behave better than an ignorant playground bully.

Collins was fired from his last job for bankrupting a city and was recommended to NOT be hired by municipal advisory services. He is so lost it isn't even funny, but Luke Goddard and Kenny Morgan pushed for him because they knew he would be easy to control. He is pretty clueless when it comes to running a city as proof of his last failure.
