This was removed once already today, wonder why? I overheard Bobby Cannon jr. which is Billy Doyles grandson saying he was gonna be the new fire chief in Oakland. Now could it be that Scott is paying Doyle back for supporting him in the election? I saw Doyle and Cannon Jr. coming out of a closed door meeting with them this morning at City Hall. Has others been interviewed? How can this dictatorship just toss good people out and around like they are?

I found out that Rick Jewel gave Scott 200 for running so i guess got his job handed to him for a few dollars.

Same way as mullins did, he is the Mayor and has his choice of Department heads. Now what?

So are they gonna hire the former officer that can't keep his trashy mouth shut? Uses the F word in front of women? It will come out if he is rehired. As well as his other antics. Will the new mayor just hire him to settle a lawsuit? Ok so settle a wrongful termination suit?? only to be sued by someone who this officer verbally assults in the future? I was given this information by someone that knows first hand.

It about time just a younger face in office. Same old song dance.

I say the good job voters and watch as this town heads down the drain. Yet we going to get a Milington TN chief who has made more head lines in memphis tv and commercial appeal than Hogwoods...

Boy glad every one got what they wanted know time to start all over again. Beer permits, taking candy out of the Oakland parad wait with all the cut and firings bet Oakland will no longer be able to have all festivals. Sure want have the pd force to handel it.

So glad other wanted better society to live in. We all most bankrupt wy not fo for the gold go all the way.

No one wanted a change in rules, just how they were applied. For example: no one wanted drunks driven home because they were friend with mullins, or now with Scott, they wanted the rules applied to everyone equally. We know for a fact that mullins was running a criminal gang in city hall. He has been convicted of it. He former chief, tisdale, also a convict. He not only has a right to choose his department heads, but also a responsibility to put in honest department heads, he promised these changes when he was running for mayor, most people in Oakland voted for this change. I for one am glad we have a man that is keeping his promises.

This must be a dhead post, if you know the mans name, and what he was fired for, and what kind of suit he has against the city (all under mullins), why aren't you posting it? You act like you know more than you do.

This town did get a mayor you all elected a Puppet know figure out who the puppet master.

Think funny how they hardly update Oakland TN.org
the min of the meetings are like three months old
they keep the puplic in the dark and still going to go on.

Take for instance the town hall seating and how few seats we have. How many would like to attend but the crowds are so packed think way past time to hold meeting where more of the public can view its ideas

Wrong, under mullins $200.00 didn't buy a reserve badge, lots of people gave Scott a campaign donation, I don't know if Chief Jewel gave him a donation or not, but if he did, on a guy like dhead, rep, mysay that posts stupidity on this board all the time would believe Scott "sold" the Chief of Police job for $200.00, mullins would have coughed up $1000.00 to keep his boy hogwood if that were the case, get real.

The town of Oakland will never change till the citizens take control and elect a real bussiness person to run like should. We need leader that listens to the public and not the builders or local good old boys.

Well till public grows a pair enjoy the Puppet show. Sad see how many Suckers live in Oakland you wanted change and you all going to get it.

Crime go up
Taxes
Police Protection will get cut
Good Officers will be lost.

This show will better than the last one.

"better Oakland" is a hold over from the days when our town was run by criminals, mullins/tisdale. The days when mullins sold police protection to drug houses, and meth labs. The days mullins had his friends that were stopped for drunk driving, or hauling drugs, driven home rather than be arrested. Now that DUI and hauling drugs through town will result in an arrest, the crime rate will go up, but only on paper, we've had the crime all along, it was never reported, it just put money in mullins pocket. No GOOD officers will be lost, those that went along with crime were not good. The mullins/tisdale rime ring just can't stand the FACT that their days of doing anything they wanted just came to an end.

Just cause you saw Doyle and Cannon Jr. walk out of a closed door meeting doesnt mean crap. For all you know they could have been talking about who they thought should be the new fire chief. Get your facts start and quit starting rumors!! Why would he run his mouth about doing something that he is not. I know. Leave them out of all this Scott is the mayor and he will make the decisions.

I wonder why mullins and tisdale just threw good people out of the city Gov. like it was a dictatorhship? I wonder why mullins/tisdale hired only low class trash, those that would be beholding to them, go along with everything they did, to include the crimes they are both now convicted of? What kind of people worked for, and were selected to work for mullins/tisdale, known criminals? Why were those that reported crimes fired? Why were those that would not go along with crimes fired? I am sure glad we are cleaning up this mess.

Put it to you like this. The Fire Chief they have now is a complete joke. The only reason he got that position is because he sided with the ex-Mayor and a former Lt. to push out the former Fire Chief because his brother broke up with his (ex-Mayor) daughter. As far as the 3 full time firefighters go....what another joke. They were already selected before the city took applications and the entire process was a waste of time for the professional fire fighters who retired from Memphis or Shelby County to apply. These men had numerous years of education, experience and qualifications over them and they weren't selected. If you are that interested in what is going on why didn't you speak up in early 2005 when this all started. Where were you in June 2006 when the fire department lost 2 more dedicated medical first responders/ERT/fire fighters with over a combined service of 25 years resigned due to the lack of leadership and lack of guidance???? You weren't there? This is still a majority "VOLUNTEER" fire department. Why aren't you there to see exactly how the fire department is ran from the inside?? You aren't. Leave the volunteers (who aren't paid enough or anything to save property or life)out of your issues. Rudy Doyle knows more than Doug Simpson will ever know. As a matter of fact, Bobby Cannon is a professional fire fighter. Want to apply for Fire Chief? What are your QUALIFICATIONS? As a resident of Oakland and a proud member of those who serve the "selfish", "snobish", "unreal", "socialites" and "ungreatful" residents of not only Oakland but Fayette County and at least I haven't kissed anyone's BUTT to get the respect that I have earned. How many closed door meetings did the ex-Mayor have?? I am sure quiet a few that weren't mentioned. The Doyle's not Mullins built Oakland long before he moved there from redneck Arkansas. It is time for him to do the time for his crimes. Lock him UP!!!!!!

House is not clean yet. I Feel bad for the 3 full time guys. Those guys are cought in a shit storm. It seems that when the f/t guys go to after hours training thay are sent home early on fridays to avoid overtime pay. I wish the city would use my tax money and staff a real Full Time department, not a full time part time department.
I don't care if jr is the chief or not just put someone in that will do the job and not the mayor.
