This has to be the stupidest bunch we have had! Who is next. What does this make three, four that no longer work for them. That they have either fired or has left because of their stupid decisions. No wonder we are in the shape we are in. Let's close down lee county and consolidate with wise county!!!

the board of supervisors need to clean a lot more house! i'm sick of people in this county being hired based on politics when there are MORE qualified individuals out there....who would do a much better job! but kudos to the supervisors for doing the great job they've done so far :)
oh please

The supervisors need to all be replaced come election time. When folks go out to vote they better remember what this all democrat board did as soon as they got into office and the treasurer too. Clean house alright... when you go vote next election.

some of the supervisors need to go more than others. a few have actually done things to HELP the county! while others...well, do absolutely nothing. the decal fee needs to be lowered in my opinion but i see how it was needed to benefit the revenue of the county. the previous board had lee co bankrupt and the democrats have done their part to get us out.

It's about time, if Tim Long new his wife stole thousands of dollars then he is a CRIMINAL. If he did not know, then he is not smart enough to be a director of anything. The truth probably got out about what he was really doing, on his many trips.
!!! THANK YOU LEE COUNTY SUPERVISORS !!!

OMG!!! I am so sorry you lost your job Tim. Keep up your wonderful positive spirit. I know how you feel. Stupid decisions by people voted into power think they know it all!!! You will be ok and they will regret their decision as the one who got rid of me is regreting his. I say ha ha to them and so should you. Love you Tim!! Good luck in all you do. What the supervisors need to do is clean out the dead weight that is sucking the county dry, all the employees in the courthouse and social services who just sit around and collect their pay without doing their job. You all know the ones I'm talkin about. How about the one at social services who sells avon. She is selling and running around making her deliveries on your tax dollar while the job she was hired to do doesn't get done. She is there to protect the children of the county and is instead selling avon. She is just one example of the crap that goes on. Pay attention and vote smart next election!!!

I never thought I would support this board, but with the mess they inherited they are doing very well. I'm sure Bobby Lane will be unhappy, Maybe the Board Can find another Engineering Firm that will do what's best for the County instead of teaming up
with another Crook like Tim Long. Also if the IDA board thinks he is so amazing , where are the results?
wow

I think Tim LONG NEEDED TO BE GONE A LONG TIME AGO. They new he had to know about his wife. I Would know if my family member had more money than we ever had i would ask a lot of questions. He had done nothing to bring anything in Lee County to work at. Oh and before someone says it Wal Mart was coming anyway. I'm talking about factory jobs . Some kind of jobs that we all can do not just a few people. And what happened to the shrimp business not heard anything about that lately. He ran around the court house like he owned it. He was a total joke and everyone i knew talked about how in the world he was staying there.I say finally he is gone now lets get to work and get some jobs.Oh and the little business over in Woodway u know bio deasel is that what it is called three or four people works who gives money for something like that. You dont hear anything about that do you i bet not many people even know about it such a joke. To the people who love him i really think you need to take a good look at him unless you are family your family loves you no matter what dirty dealings you do.[ Glad you are gone] dont mean to bash but truth is truth.

The IDA board is not aware of all of Tim's actions. The supervisors are being
Very fair not to expose his actions, and add more embarrassment to him & our
Community.
What company wants to invest in a community if there is even a hint of corruption.

Can you quote the statute that says knowledge of a crime is a criminal offense? Or something that shows that a husband must testify against his wife? If there's any truth to this, I have an awesome idea!

If you know SO MUCH, then we don't want to be spared, we want to know. This is bull and not one person on the IDA Board had a negative word against Tim. I don't even know why there is a BOARD? if they were informed after the fact? I think is something the BOS have wanted to do for a long time! I have known Tim Long for most of my life and he is a good man, and doesn't deserve the kick in the face he has just received!
He is just too good possibly....to be surrounded by some that he has had to associate with, who will smile in your face, and shake your hand, and turn the knife at the same time! The "Good Ole Boy" syndrome! Sickening!
