Another lie. Check the facts. The things people will say that are clueless to the facts.

I'm a concern citizen and I would not vote for Richard Rogers after I heard all the stuff about him. He does drugs and another man pays his bills for him. What's up with that? Suppose to be a Christian, I think we know what's up with that. He has told people so many lies about his life. Well, my understanding his 3 kids that can't stand him and don't claim him. By what his kids has said he has never been in the picture there whole life. And he wants praise for that and he wants to be a grandfather to his grandchild that he hasn't seen but 3 times and she is almost a year old. I heard that he said he was married to the mother of the children but I know they where never married and she said he was just a sperm donor. My understanding he always made excuses not to see his kids and when she took him to court for child support he didn't even want to pay it until he had a DNA done. Well they are his kids and he couldn't even manage to pay his child support of 60.00 a week for them and he his still behind on child support and they are grown now. Really, people why would you want someone that can't even pay his own bills and someone that couldn't take care of his kids be our City Council. What's this World coming to?
Why dont u call me and say those things to me about my kids......or better yet come tell me to my face coward. Bring my kids into it then u bring out the man in me and I will totally tell u u are a liar and a coward. Get your facts straight. OR I will investigate this and find out who it is and I will contact my attorney. No one takes care of me I am a process server and I serve summons for prominent attorneys in our town. My kids are my business and no one elses except their mothers. I will not talk about her or things about her out of respect for my children. It takes two to have kids and to call me a sperm donor is really classy. I am not perfect but obviously whomever u are ... cruel and mean and spiteful and not even in Lebanon so I could care less what u say or think but keep my kids out of it Please. Check your own closet for skeletons i bet u can find some. Are u without sin throw a stone...Wont hurt me. Makes u look foolish. Anything else to say come on by my place and we will have coffee and chat about it. I think u are just someone hiding behind a computer disgruntled at society or the devil is working on ya. Have a Great night NON FACT WRITING PERSON WHO IS TOO COWARD TO Say anything to me face to face or man to man or woman to man whatever u are. Waste of my time. I have a real event that will benefit 11 schools and 1200 kids to get ready for this weekend...thats the kind of man I am now. People are so jealous of others accomplishments and cannot be happy for someone trying to improve themselves and help a city they love.

<quoted text>What church did he just start showing up to???
I didnt start showing up at any church I have been a member of Poplar Hill Baptist since I was a young boy in Statesville. Once again get facts straight. U judge me u must not be walking the walk because that is hypocritical. I am walking the walk and I talk the talk and devils get behind me. I answer to no one but God and he knows my heart and he has my soul. This deeply saddens me and I am actually crying as I pray for whomever judged me like that..........Lord please forgive them where they have transgressed against me. They know not what they do and I pray that you put love and forgiveness into their hearts so that they may know the joy i feel and have felt since I rededicated my life to the Lord in 2004 when my angel of a mother passed away. Took me awhile to get back in church but it was 2009 and I am running for council in 2012 so please teach this person math as well. Thank you lord for all your blessings and forgive us where we fail thee... in Jesus name I pray AMEN!

U post as a concerned citizen yet your town is listed as Alexandria. What does your concerns have to do with me and Lebanon. U would be a citizen of Alexandria unless that is another lie u are spreading about me. Right? Which is it? Confused is what I would say. Clueless. Ruthless. Mean. Concerned...disgruntled person who is judging me.

poplar hill in watertown and nw i think some church on highway 70 going toward carthage...didnt he just hae the police called on him the other day for sticking signs in peoples yards when they told him not to
No I did not stick signs in anyones yard that I was told not to Lanny Jewell. This has to be u because u would be the only one or your father who would say that and if it is not then its his supporter. I ask before I put signs up and how do u know what church I go to I go to Poplar Hill and u do not even know a name of a church u just say a random one on HWY 70. Clueless. Misinformed and slandering. God Bless u. Also I would like to say that my supporters in an area of town said Lanny and his father were going door to door saying I dropped out of the race. So telling lies seems to be the theme of their campaign and their supporters. Dirty politics! Terrible examples of someone I would want. They lied on Don Fox when he ran but u see who won. Don Fox. And I am gonna win based on qualifications which far exceed making a sign for a living and living home with mama and daddy and not having a wife or kids. I can tell truths not lies. And I will be Happy on election day win or lose because I know i will not have to stoop to those and these tactics to be successful and I will still be at church and praising GOD.... join me .. Poplar Hill Baptist ... Tracy Rd Watertown TN.. Brother Ben Fuston my best friends Uncle preaching the word. You may learn something about walking the walk of a christian. God Bless

OK, who's running against Richard Rogers? whomever it is support them because I read the Sunday paper about the Mayors hand picked pro arena candidates. Richard has stated to a friend of mine he's for this fiasco. you know it would behoove Philip to stay out of other elections. Find his other hand picked candidates and vote against them too.
Name the friend and tell me how I got handpicked. LOL that is so ridiculous. I chose to run on my own. So misinformed. I like the Mayor hes always been nice to me but not handpicked. I am my own man running my own race the Mayor has his own race to run. Worry about jobs and infrastructure of our city and how to keep it beautiful and historic. Worry about how to make Lebanon a better place that is growing. Worry about real issues instead of griping about things. Do something about it do not discuss it in silly assumptions. Thats the problem with some of our current council. They are all talk no action. I am all action with discussion on how to act. Thats my platform.

I have heard from a pretty good sourc that craighead and fox are backing Richard. They want some other crooked person like thereselvs to hold a position where they will vote for whatever they say. He wants to raise the taxes in Lebanon to help build that sports arena or whatever but I as well as everyone else can agree riht now is not thetime everyone out there is already struggling to stay afloat in this economy dont think a tax increase is the right thing right now. A little puppet is all Richard would be to them and heck as long as he is getting a check and getting to look so great to all his friends im pretty sure he would say whatever they wanted him to... Pathetic. What kind of person running for city council gets out in the street screaming and waveing there hands like a lunatic because someone is putting out a sign representing his opponent..I mean be an adult
Oh I did that ... it gets crazier these posts from anti Mayor and anti Former Mayor posts and about me. Says u are in Portland so who are u and how do u know me and I never said I support a tax increase. I support the citizens views. I support my community through volunteer work and I support people who have a true love of the city. Yes Don Fox is supporting me as a candidate. He lives in my ward. He has that right and I am glad he does. You could learn something from him probably like respect. Which obviously u do not possess NNNN from Portland. Aka hiding and judging and transgressing against me. Its ok the devil does that to ya. But I pray and go on.

If Rogers get's elected Craighead can do anything he want's too by having Joe Haynes, Rob Cisterino and his tie breaking vote it will be higher taxes for sure and a whole lot more wasteful spending. I did not hear it but I was told he said he was going to bring up the Arena crap again, I don't know what he is getting in exchange for his efforts, but it must be alot.
Actually the correct spelling is CESTERNIO and if you have ever been to a budget meeting you would have heard Cesternino say for the record that he told the mayor he would only support 2 yrs of deficit spending and next year would vote no if the budget was not balanced. He also wants the half a cent sales tax increase to be used for repaving roads andfixing flooding. Deos not seem wasteful to me

Do any of you people realize that per our current mayors own comments we are only borrowing a portion of the money that we took from ourselves and if the tax referendum passes it essentially adds approx 1.5 to 2 million on top of what's been allocated to the budget for what? By the way fom the reading of this post Richard Rodgers gives the impression he may fix all of lebanons problems (ok dummies) just seems to defensive to me so I guess according to him he is the only one who can fix the city really u sure hope not.

Can't believe you're on here talking the way you are, how is someone supposed to take you serious when you feel as if you have to defend yourself on a forum like this ? The person that shows up as Alexandria or Portland could be your next door neighbor ! You may not be ready for the city council seat my friend..........

This is my last ever post on here. I would have never known about this place till the other day unless I was looking up something about a real life program that helps the city. I refuse to answer or even dignify some of the comments with anymore responses. People who know me know me and people who do not well u do not. Simply put I could care less about the opinions or topics created by vindictive and evil people. I just hope you all find happiness in your lives. I forgive you all who transgressed against me. Amen

Richard is a liar and has never done anything for his own kids. He wants to try to boss them now. Telling his son he better call him or text. Well your name may be on your kids birth certificate, but that don't make you a Father or dad. Your just the absent parent that hasn't been in your kids lives since they have been born. That's a FACT!!!! Your kids do not have to call or text you, matter of fact you are embarrassing your children who don't want people to know they are kin to you. If your kids wanted something to do with you they would come around, but they have you blocked from their facebook. You talking about taking care of your community, you can't even pay your childsupport. paying 25.00 dollars a month don't cut it when your suppose to pay 140.00 a month cause your still 9000.00 dollars behind. Need to take care of your priority first, before you can take care of other people. FYI Lanny Jewell has never talked about your children. He is a good man and would better serve the community. Far as the kids grandmother she doesn't want you to have her new phone number. She don't want to here all the BULLSHIT you got to say. And, another thing get a life and stop living in the past and get over it. Don't matter what's in the past, the past has moved on. Get you a girlfriend and move on with your life. Far as your kids leave them alone and stop being pushy, if they want something to do with you they will find you. They are grown and married and have their own families. Let me tell you I know the truth about everything.
