Sells' office is locked in for as long as he wants. Out of the 5 to 600 that go vote, there are 450 Sells votes already locked in. These are the same ones that have a vested interest in things staying as they are. They are the Sells/Price family members, and city employees and their families. They want things to continue to stay the same for another 40 years and no one can stop them because there are not enough people that care enough to make a change. They will criticize at times...but will not take the time to cast a vote. Can see him 96 and still in office. He does not even need to campaign.

When you only have Carolyn Elder to run against you, what do you think? Also very few vote in the local election. He'll be mayor till we hold the doors open for him at Christian Sells.

I'd be willing to bet that the taxpayers will even have to foot the bill for that also! Change is coming!! Vote and not for that bobble head Brian Hartness that their grooming to be the Mayor after him. This town needs an audit of funds and benifits provided for the past several years.

They've figured out how to control the city election and he'll keep going in until the city election is combined with another election.

Oh now let's not forget what they tried to feed us. Because of history & for wanting to preserve what their fore fathers did , that's the only reason Mayor Sells wants a stand alone election. I think it's called being chickensh@t.....I've called your bluff Sells and Company now let's play!

It's sad isn't it? Our city fathers thought enough of our city that they wanted a stand alone election. I call BS! Our city fathers had no clue that they were giving Sells and Company the opportunity to rule until they die. Our city fathers are flipping in their graves. If you REALLY want to call his bluff, show up at a City Council meeting and speak up when he asks if there is anyone that wants to come before the board. Ask why they really don't want to save money by combining the city election with other area elections. Ask what the real reason is. Watch him and Bill Phillips squirm. It's a great show. If more people, heck if ANYONE, would do that maybe they'd realize people were serious about challenging them. If everyone just sits back and does nothing, then NOTHING WILL CHANGE! Stop the apathy people! Show up and ask questions!!!

They think the voters are dumb because nobody smart shows up to vote. Nobody smart shows up to challenge anything. Stop the apathy! Show up! Ask questions! Hold their feet to the fire!

Not enough smart or dumb people show up for the local election. If the local election were held on election day in November, things may be different, but the people in power now shot that down.

Does not matter who runs because the margin is always the same. Look at the last several challenges. Sells ended up with the same number of votes and each challenger has lost with the same votes. The same people are voting for change, but there is not enough of them to make a difference. So until the non voters decide to get out of their chairs and take an interest in what is going on around them, there will be no change here no matter who sticks their neck out to challenge. The ones who have challenged at least tried to do the right thing. The political game around here is very tight, long standing, corrupt, and most likely will not change any time soon.

You can bet your azz that I'll show up with a car full of others that normally with go. But they will this year.

People get together and start contacting others to vote and car pool so more can be at the voting polls.

You need candidates for mayor and three alderman running as one with announced goals, like term limits, audits, and other issues...that could be a winner...if u get the right people.

Rogersville operates under a private charter and not the the mayor aldermanic charter set up by the state to curb small town corruption. Just like the country the direction can only be changed at the ballot box. Get out the vote.

There are a couple new aldermen that would help you with your efforts if you would show up and support them. Just saying. One of them brought the idea up and was shut down. The support is there to bring it up again if the support would be there to make them give good answers.

If you support anyone running against him and you work for the city, say goodbye to your job.

Surely somebodies not going to lose their job because of how they vote, that would be criminal.
