Waiting for this to hit the national news. The interviews should be entertaining to say the least.

Dave Chesney is being sued for slander, harrassment, and a few other things. Am I sure? Yes!!! Just because a person may have a couple misdemeanors against them, doesn't make them a bad person. I mean, a speeding ticket is a misdemeanor, so before condeming a person, get your facts straight. As for his working for Eddie Shoffner, he was having a hard time in his life (just like everyone else has at one time or another), and Eddie gave him a helping hand, by offering him a job. This person has taken time from his own family to complete work at the school board building and every school in the county, that had been neglected over the years, even prior to Eddie Shoffner becoming Director of the School Board. When it comes to getting things done the Director of the School Board is just like the President; before approval can be made to fix a problem, you have to have the majority of the vote from the whole school board. You want to know who has shot down a large majority of repairs, and changes that needed and still needs to be made? Don't look at Shoffner, look at Chesney and the few that cling to him, because they see it a big deal that he is Kenny Chesney's dad (although, even his own son wants nothing to do with him).

Seems to me that you are either ignorant or just did a horrible job reading my post...I am an Attorney so I do know a few things about politics. Yes he is being sued for slander, but the thing to keep in mind is Chesney just confused the terms Felony and Misdemeanor essentially. I don't know what led to him calling Shoffner out on this individual, but the reason he did was clearly due to good intentions. Chesney knew this individual had a past, but wasn't sure of the degree.

Yes, yes we all know how a board system works. But the thing you don't realize is, Eddie doesn't like the fact Chesney doesn't lay in his lap and vote accordingly. Chesney takes a stand against proposals he feels are unnecessary and frivolous, unlike say Bobby Drummands who feeds off the proverbial tit. This in turn makes Chesney a liability in Eddies eyes, one that he wants rid of. Instead of you being so objective you need to look at it from an outsiders prospective, for all I know you may be related or friends with said person, but something seems to be clouding your judgment other than ignorance.

I have no dog in this fight other than to ask, Are you a Claiborne County Attorney? If So, I would not put any trust in anything you say....They are the biggest bunch of morons that ever took the bar exam...They have their nerve calling themselves LAWYERS...Never would I hire one of these jerks to represent me or anyone I cared about...I believe some of them are confused at what BAR they decided to take, And are still sitting in front of the bartender nightly....

You are mistaken when you say Dave only confused a couple of words.
I personally know of more than one person Dave told of the offenses he discovered from the background check he had run on said employee of the school system. My question is, if Dave had a background check done, who done it?
If it is legit then it would have had to be done by a law enforcement officer. This is illegal done as Dave has portrayed and will get an officer fired if it comes to light. Otherwise Dave could have gone online and paid to have a background check on the employee, this is unreliable at best.
I'm pretty sure that I could find a place on the net where I could get a picture of Dave, or anyone else for that matter, in a pink tutu. It might be useful if I were inclined to defame his character. I'm not. Dave is doing that well enough on his own.
One more question, if your such a smart lawyer type then why don't you know the correct spelling is teat, not tit.

Well, confused or whatever, he should of had his facts straight before opening his mouth. If done with good intentions, then, again he should of had his facts straight. Yes, I do know the other party, and I do look from objective point of view. However, I have put 6 kids through the Claiborne County School System, and I have watched the changes over the years. Eddie Shoffner has done a tremendous job at making necessary changes in the school system, that were needed. I have also watched Chesney fight against thinggs that needs to be changed, things that need to be repaired, saying there is no need in it. Chesney has put a stop to a lot of improvements that are needed. He lives on his reputation of being Kenny's dad (again, which has nothing to do with his dad). If Chesney is going to shoot something down, then at least have a good reason to support it. As for the law suit, he should learn to get his facts straight before opening his mouth. He went to open a can of worms and found a can of rattlesnakes.

Yes,
Daves character should be put on trial. I KNOW HIM PERSONaly and have known him for 15 years or longer .He is not a man of substance.
The way he treated his wife Yvonne is sicking.SHE believed he was a good man up until a couple months before she passed away then she saw dave for what he truly was a greedy money hungry loser who tries 2 ride on kennys coatail .He couldnt wait for his wife 2 die so he could rake n tha money. ANYONE WHO KNEW AND LOUED YVONNE WOULD AGREE WITH ME ON THIS MATTER
so goodluck whoever is suing daue i pray u get all his money its tha only thing he has euer loved n life

Dave Chesney is out of a job come next election. He has hired every friend and family member inside and OUTSIDE the county. Update your resume' Dave. I'll vote for a diog before him. I encourage others to do the same. Enough corruption.

Dave Chesney has all the support he needs to get re-elected. It's Sam Owens who will not get re-elected. Remember that Sam wanted out so he ran for County Mayor. That shows me that Sam doesn't care about our children. Lets give Sam his wish and release him of his duties as School Board Member at the next election. Thank You!

I sure hope they don't get rid of Chesney or all these people won't have anything to talk about. It' truly ashame that the ones who don't like Chesney are th ones that Eddie took care of. Chesney has done more to help our families than most of our elected officals, but because most people don't know anything about politics all they have to go on is rumors. Maybe one day people will quit voting for or against people just cause (maw and paw) said they were for or against and really look into these officals and vote their conscience. If you need proof just look at our roads and the shape they are in, it isn't lack of money but a lack of management. That man got his job simply because people knew his dad and the (good old boy) system, that doesn't give him the ability to run a road department nor will it. Rumors aren't always true but facts are one thing for sure.
