I agree with Red Rob. We need to get rid of the (2) mullinjs followers, evans and powers. Once that is done, the city can move on in the right direction.

These two allowed mullins to do everything he was charged and convicted on, plus numerious other things that screwed the citizens of Oakland.

Time to get rid of the fungs that have been hurting our city for way to long.

HELL to the NO!!!!! He needs to stick with preaching because he might keep in flock in check but the city of Oakland he could give a shit less about it. If he cared, he get out of his SUV and pick up the garbage that the "paid" city employees can't pick up!!!!! He was a complete waste of my vote!!!!!! He is just there for the notarity and that is it. Why does he have to have an SUV? What's wrong with a economical car like a Avero? Oh, it's my tax dollars filling up his 30+ gallon gas tank to go to his preaching job that is over an hour away. Oh, that new ordinance about the city vehicles -- ironically his preaching job just barely falls within that 100 mile radius. Clever!!!!

Scott Ferguson deserves to be re-elected because he was elected to bring integrity back to Oakland's government...which he's done. Mayor Ferguson may be the ONLY elected leader in West Tennessee that is able to truly say he's had three straight budget surpluses without a tax increase for three consecutive years during the largest economic downturn since the Great Depression! Ferguson found less than $700,000 in the bank when he became Mayor and as of last month... we have over $1.4 Million dollars in the city reserve fund. Ferguson has doubled our reserves...cut government cost and done it all during a recession WITHOUT raising taxes! Does he deserve re-election...you bet!

You are exactly right Oakland is the FUTURE of Fayette County, if done right we can all be proud that we live here. There have been no scandals, no investigations, just the same old nay-saying from John and Maggie that want to take it back to the old Mullins days.

Funny that when Scott came in and moved what money was left from Oakland Deposit Bank [where John Evans was a VICE Pres.] John was fired. Could it be that he used his influence as VICE Mayor and your money to get and keep that job? just sayin.....

Mayor Ferguson is a lying, cheating, and manipulative person. If you do not believe me, let the city be responsible for damages to your property and see how he lies about the cities responsibility ... Cheats you out of rightfully owed funds to repair the damage ... And manipulates the system to keep himself out of trouble for violation 5 different municipal codes. It's all a matter of public record. It's just a matter of time before the annual audit by The Comptroller of the Treasury: Division of Municipal Audit comes in and addresses these problems. Then you will have Mayor Ferguson to thank for the same unwanted advertising in local media and our neighbors to the south have been receiving.

Scott definately has my vote. He is doing a super great job for his first term. I am excited about what he can do in his second term. Scott has good morals and is a very honest and respectable Mayor.

Answer, raise the taxes build some dam parks. Revamp the school system fix the Oakland Elementary School its a dump. The play ground and fields are garbage. The only two parks in Oakland are run down and thrown together. They layed down gravel rock in the playgrounds which leaves your kids clothes dirty and serves no safety purpose at all. As a matter of fact my son has come out of the playground slipped on those rocks and banged his head against the ground. The fields are poorly maintained cheap operation. Surplus how easy, no roads are being maintained no $$ going into the city and the. Commercial growth is at a stand still. WTF surplus = F------n FIRED

So far as I know. But you put evans in, you will have mullins number 1 supporter along with powers, so you would have a mullins type administration back running our town. I have seen them together st the ozone, I hope you dont want that!

Oakland is Disneyworld to Ferguson. All the voters who went for him in the last election now know they were cheated.
Last week he played golf in the middle of the day with the police chief who shared on his facebook how he was "... on the golf course with the mayor crushing the golf balls."
And they took the police chief's car to get there. The car we pay for and the one he takes home every night to another town.
On wednesday afternoon at 1-30 the rest of us were working... Ferguson is out playing golf.
He's a loser and he should not get give him another chance.
Fool me once, etc...

And
Evans is his own man... there's going to be a lot of rhetoric trying to tie him to Mullins, but that's only because Ferguson can't possibly get reelected if he runs on his record which stinks.
All Ferguson can do in this election is slander Evans. The voters of Oakland are too smart to buy this crapola.
You know what they say in law school... when the facts are in your favor pound on the facts, when the law is in your favor pound on the law and when neither the facts nor the law are in your favor... pound on the table.
Ferguson is using surrogates to pound on the table.

Ferguson is Mickey Mouse, words and actions, I should know!
What a looser for this town, spends money on everything he wants without regard for what the townspople want, need, or can afford. At least the real Mickey understands business, Randell Scott probably can't spell business, much less work in a business like fashion. His decisions are made by others, he just relays them at the town meetings and his two supporters. All he wants is what benefits him. Put him out of office this fall and take our Ferguson transportation back so we don't provide an elected official a vehicle used for PERSONAL use.

Doesn't take a genius to read this crap and the wording from Hip Hop Epstein and Skippy Ferguson. And look at their start dates for posting, to know they are written by the same dumb as s, and idiot. evans would be the last choice anyone that loves their city, and besides anyone know why he was let go from Oakland Deposit Bank, and you want him to be over the finances of our fine town, I hope not.

I know that evans and mullins have had meetings together, and also evans and powers meet at their favorite watering hole, the O Zone. These are the same four, mullins, evans, powers and tisdale that put the our city in a bad light a few years back, where two of them are now convicted felons, and you want the two mulins yes people, who never voted against mullins as long as he was in power.

I think the fine citizens of our beautiful city, will never forget what they did to us as citizens of Oakland, TN., our fine town.

I PRAY NEVER AGAIN
