Sounds like it might be a total train wreck, atleast at first anyways.

Who knows? I guess only time will tell.

I think he will bring some fresh air to the mix. I personally like the guy and thnkhe is up to the task.
I do no think e can be swayed and has the countys best interest at heart. He is a good ol boy , but not a corupt one IMO.

I won't be moving anywhere. Someone asked a question, of personal opinion, and I answered it. I mean, have you heard that guy speak? He is going to need a lot of training to be able to conduct those meetings. I wasn't knocking him. Just being honest. So no one has any right to tell anyone to move on. Get over yourself

He will do just fine. He is not into "playing politics" and being a puppet for others. He will say and do what he feels is best for the area. He is not a party line politician. I know Jeff well, he is openminded to ideas, has no hidden agenda and not afraid to make the tough decisions.

What's wrong with the way Jeff speaks? So, he has a southern drawl. It's not like he speaks mandrin chinese or broken english. I've never had a problem understanding him and I'm sure those who will be listening to him will have no problem either.

Well said.. He sounds like the rest of us . Most importantly,when he says something , he means what he says and not just trying to be politically correct.

We'll all miss "Gentle Ben' BEFORE THE NEXT 4 YEARS ARE UP. Higher appraisals , more tax and a middle school that we definitely don't need are all on the horizon for us taxpayers. And you have put a leader in office to run the biggest business in the county that couldn't run his own small business.
Going into an office unapposed is not the same as being elected by pupular vote!

Should be interesting. No doubt Jeff is a good guy, but he has no experience in governing, and now he's charge.

Jeff keeps company with common sense guys. Hopefully he will listen to their advice and draw from their business experience

The republicans did elect him and he wasn't unopposed. I'm pretty sure no one will be missing ol Ben anytime soon! As far as Jeff's small business, the economy sucks and that is in no way his fault. He was in business for many years and that takes some brains and business sense in itself. His business suffered because if you can't afford groceries and a mortgage then how can you afford a new gun or hunting equipment? And when Dick's and Wal-Mart can sell the big ticket items for less due to the bulk they purchase how can anyone compete? He didn't run it in the ground...the economy did and to say any different is just asinine.

Jeff is an honest hard working man and is more in tune with the community as a whole than Ben ever was. The reason Ben was voted out was because he made choices based on how he personally would benifit and he is in noway a common citizen. Even if Jeff did that, I would still give him my full support because he isn't ruled by money or greed and actually cares about more than just himself.

Shows you do not know Jeff well. He is business minded and in the 25 years I have known him I have never heard him called a liar. He speaks his mind regardless if it is a popular opinion or not. But lying? You are dead wrong.
