I agree. A change in leadership would be a huge step forward. Tim (Guy) Smith is a politician with all of the baggage that comes with it. He does not lead. Is there a leader on the board - Burpoe - Jones -??

I think B. jones should take the leader-ship,new blood new ideas,Smith is so out of touch with the people it's almost laughable to hear him speak,and Burpoe is not a man of his word,he is more about him-self,speaks in circles.

VERY TRUE Jones would be a great good step in the right direction he is young and willing to listen. Unlike some that are there way or none at all. Seems to me it would of been nice if the tax payers in this county could of had an opinon on the court house upgrade and not just watch our money get pissed away

You are quite right with a project of that magnnitude and the related cost it should have gone before the people for a vote,but it wasn't,even if they would have scaled down some of the projects,like the court yard that nobody uses(can't smoke out there,and you can only use it 5 or 6 months)just up grade the essentials.leave out the PRETTY stuff for another day,and tell the people what it really cost to do this !!!!!!!
