If you have met the man, and heard his comments about only having to pencil push for 7 hrs a week for one hell of a pay or maybe helped him out of the ditch on his "drunken ditch cleaning weekends" or smoked some of the pot from under his truck seat with him - and still have some respect for him than by all means use your tax dollar to support it. If you have read any of the articles on this - the salary posted for this position was from a man who worked 30+ years to earn it. This man started out at under 10M that many years ago. The salary paid to the appointed person was not nearly as high as the salary our precious town clerk posted.

Well good point. Just remember before you took your new job the person worked for 30 plus years and you are taking the pay he earned so what is the point? As his other habits as you said. Why has the sheriff's dept do anything seeing it is common knowledge. Sounds as if he is a good politician.

This is in response to the kind words from Jan...
Everyone seems to forget that David won the election fair and square. I have known him for the better part of 35 years and he is the type of person that would take the shirt off his back for anyone. I think it is unfair that he is not being given the chance to even do the job before being criticized and ridiculed. He comes from a wonderful family that has a long history of doing kind things for anyone in need. I can't imagine him ever saying the "pencil pushing" comment. I know david will do the best job regardless of what the pay is. And furthermore, the comment about drug use and ditch cleaning is slanderous.... I would watch what energy you put out in the world... It always comes back to you. You reap what you sow.

Your right Frank, Mr. Winter proved to be a great highway super. He is doing an excellant job. He has improved our little town parks and given the children something to do. I have seen him working side by side with the guys. Salting and sanding the roads himself. The comments that were made about him that he smokes pot and drunken ditch digging from Jan in Hamburg she dosnt know what the hell shes talking about. Maybe Jan should come out and look what hes done so far. So Jan come on out. You dont know what the hell your talking. You are simpleminded and need to be slapped.

Thanks, I know I only come home 3 or 4 times a year. I do talk to alot of people at home yes I do think of North Collins as home still even living here in Newport News. Tommy has done a good job with the town and sometimes thing get in the way.
I am glad to see Mr. Winter is showing who ever doubted his ability to handle everything and they all should be happy for the job he is doing for all the towns people.
