OMG. raymond walker is pulling for jim cook for council along with jeff laxton for mayor.i heard this from friends of mine. he thinks jim cook is jeff's buddy. somebody needs to tell raymond that jim does not like jeff and it is clear on topix and jim only likes himself and will use any means necessary to get elected. i used go to church with jim. my wife says is to know him is to know that he really thinks he is all that.if he does not like jeff he should stop by his business and tell him to stop trying to be his friend. stop trying to get him elected to council. will jim do that. uh. no. politics.

This is now my second post on this thread and in the first post I don't recall saying I disliked Jeff Laxton or claimed not to know him, in fact I said I did known him. I've known Jeff for many years and yes I consider him a friend. Jeff cares about the town and is trying to make a difference in the community. He recently established a Neighbor Hood Watch program to try and help local law enforcement and invited many of those on the ballot to join the Watch program and help...only Derrick Crouse and I took him on the offer and volunteered to help. If others have posted something to the contrary, then you will have to take it up with them.

Do I think Iím all that? If you mean I have confidence in myself, have a can-do attitude, have a good education, and proud of my accomplishments, then yes, I think Iím all that. Would you rather have someone with low self-esteem working for you?

So who am I with? Iím not ďwithĒ anyone and by this I mean if elected I WILL NOT vote for something just because someone on the council asks me too. I donít play ďscratch my back and Iíll scratch yours.Ē Those on town council should not trade votes (and Iím not saying they do that now) but should look at each individual item up for vote and do what is best for the whole community not just a select few. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

To GIJoe/littlebit, thank you for exercising your freedom of speech and posting your opinion. I hope you will continue to exercise your freedom and go vote on June 12th for the candidate of your choice.
Derrick gonna win

J Cook. You would be a blessing to the council. You are very well spoken, educated and truthful. It would be nice to see someone in there that wouldn't follow some people around like sheep headed to slaughter.

Hey Jim Cook. Thank you for your thread. I dont know littlebit but I can say this. You run with whoever supports as long as you get in office. You constantly brag about your leadership ability. YOUR military experience. THat is OK.THEN you put everybody else down like your sh&t dont stink. You are then saying that Derrick, Don, Erby,Doug and Jeff who are out working hard to get your a&& in office is beneath you because you are educated.Laugh. I knew you in high school. YOU GUYS. STOP TRYING TO GET JIM COOK IN OFFICE. HE THINKS HE IS BETTER THAN YOU ARE. READ HIS THREADS! I WOULD GO WITH BILL WEBSTER INSTEAD. By the way, Jim, I was marine.

You may as well talk to the mirror. We all know Jim. He does not act like he is better than anyone else. He is very respectful. He is also better educated than you. Army.

TODAY in this election It Is so different I guess.

By the way. I remember as a teenage kid listening that Jim Pennington served in World War II under fire and 3was almost killed. But when he ran for council he never mentioned it. Jim Cook did you serve stateside or did you go in to battle? Marvin Stennett never mentioned his Vietnam as well. I heard of another councilman who I don't know his name was Timmy Blackburn but he served on the city council and I think he served in Vietnam but he didn't mention it when he ran for office back about 25 years ago. My My how times change, right soldier?

I personally feel that if he has the dedication and commitment to serve our country for 26 years, he would be well qualified to serve the town of Oceana!

Vote like you have a brain people. Whisnant, Fleshman, Womack, Jim Cook, and Lester. If you vote for anybody else check and see and make sure they are smarter than the average 4th grader at OMS.

Hey John Roach is a veteran. So is Mack Prichard I believe. How come these guys don't hug their military service just to try to get elected like Jim Cook does???? It looks like the people who served after about 1975,they want everyone to kiss their a$$ because they vounteered for service and want everyoner to know it. I was drafted. Thank you.It was my duty and if I was running I would not even mention it. So was the other councilmen in the past who ran like I mentioned Pennington and Stennett but they didn't say oh I served my country so hey please vote for me. They ran because of who they were in the town. Years ago, everybody served in the military. After Vietnam if you served in the military they think you owe them. Not true. Be drafted and then serve and still be proud like I am. But don't tell everyone when you are running for office Jim Cook.

Vote as you wish. It's your right. If you are trying to get a rise out of Jim Cook, it's not going to work. He has said his peace and is done with this thread. It's time for you to end your rants. We are tired of reading them.

You people are completely turning this into something it is not! This voting on topix and all the trash and even the good things that are being said are of no significance to the actual voting or who actually gets Mayor & Council! In my own personal opinion since everyone else is giving theres; those that are getting on topix to argue over the election to begin with are proving that they are more worried about what is being said about them on topix then getting out and talking to people in the town. You can be anyone you want behind a computer; face to face you have to be you. I don't live in Oceana, but have a lot of family that do so while visiting this past week/weekend I noticed Don Morgan, Jeff Laxton, Derick Crouse campaigning. I noticed them talking to people and going out of their way to state their opinions & not getting upset if the person they were speaking with did not agree. So I think it shows in the ones that want it, it's easy to sit a sign in someones yard and then get on the computer and type, its a lot harder to go out in public and talk to people about what you actually want to do when you get in there!!!!!!!!

Man, you must really hate someone. I can't tell if you hate Perry or if this is more about his Mom. I'll have to say it would be good if everyone's parents raised them like Perry's did. He is a good Christian man, and his church thinks the world of him, he worked in the coal mines for about 25 or 30 years and provided for his family. He sent his two kids to college. They both work and provide a living for themselves. She really did a horrible job of raising him. I think what this boils down to is you're afraid, Jesse W., that that little old woman is going to get on the town council and you know you won't. That's pitiful. That little woman doesn't do anything to you. You even mentioned her church on here too. Do you have something against people who go to church? You can tell that all of the above posts were written by the same person by just reading the way they were written. I will say you probably are going really far in accusing him of sexual harassment. He may just get an attorney and find out who you are.
When he gets his attorney, let him find out who I am also. I can back up Miss Piggy's story with facts. Thank you. Good day.
