All I've really learned about either candidate is how the Ashmore camp is a bunch of idiotic drunks and how Ned's camp are a bunch of old corrupted lackeys.

It would be nice to have actual facts, experience, goals ect listed for each candidate. I suppose forums aren't the best place for accurate information. But since there are supporters obviously close to both sides on here, how about doing them a favor and representing them positively, instead of just spewing out misinformation and non relevant "facts".

I mean if you are going to try to bring politics here, by all means go there. But all the "poo" slinging just misdirects and doesn't do either side any favors.

You don't find the sales tax debate relevant? How about the condition of main street? There have been relevant points discussed, you just must have missed them, I guess?

LOL! Instead of referring him to Ashmore's website, you suggest he provide his actual name on Topix?

Comparatively Sesser is just barely above the region average. Taxes are used to maintain streets ect. It started off on point. I'm more referring to the rest of the discussion which is hardly useful to the topic. As are most of the post made on here in regards to Ned/Ashmore. Why should I care when making my decisions which voters are drunks, or who Ned bedded down.

I'm currently leaning towards writing in "random 3rd grader at SVS" for my choice.

Stop signs, street signs.. maintenance on the grass.. Well kept roads And things like that are needed in the town. But we sure as hell did not need 45,000 dollars worth of fancy lights on mane street!!!

8% of the tax is the town's. 1% goes to the school.
Whether it works out like that or not is of no concern to me.
This tax increase was voted on. Shut up.

True story. It was a county wide deal.

Yes, the 1% is a county wide deal. That does not change the fact that Sesser's 8% is the highest in Franklin County.

SESSER had a 7.25% tax rate in 2008. Each year it has steadily increased to 9% in 2012. I just think all residents need to have a better understanding of what and how these decisions get made. As a local business owner it affects the business that we can bring in when patrons know our sales tax is higher than other areas.
