I was just told that Elysa Turner, the lady that announced her intention to run for City Clerk in Edwards paper, is the wife of a Greenwood firefighter. My God, doesn't those firefighter/Councilmen have control of enough? They control the City Council, thereby controlling the Mayor and now they are going after the City Clerk's position! When will it end?

Why in the hell is this City letting a bunch of firemen control us?

If they control the council and the city clerk position, they control our town, not good.

It is true, her Husband is a Greenwood Vol.(lots of laughs)Fireman. Where does she stand on the issue of her Husband getting paid $25.75 per hour to be a Volunteer Fireman? She thinks he and all the other Firemen in the City Deserve the Money! So what does that tell me? The Fire Department is really going after Complete Control of our City. Do you think that Elysa Turner will stand up for the Fire Department or have the City's best interest in mind? She is obviously biased towards the Fire Department.

She is an outspoken Edwards supporter, she was in favor of the Firemen Ordinance that made them a separate union within the City that the Mayor can't touch. You know, the Fire Ordinance the Firemen/Councilmen shoved down our throats. Also I was told she does not think Lance Terry did anything wrong when he assaulted the old man getting signatures against the Fire Ordinance.

Does this really sound like somebody who will represent the best interest of Greenwood?

Maybe all the citizens in Greenwood should be on the Vol. Fire Department and then the Firemen/Councilmen would be representing us too!!!!!!!!!!

If they get control of the Clerk/Treasurer office, then they control the Mayor, Council, and the money flow of the City. if they control the person who signs the checks, then they have it made.

No more Wilma Cabe or Sharla Spoon not signing checks because they think what the Firemen/Councilmen are trying to pull is illegal. Watch the videos on youtube.com under Greenwood Cryer again. when Jimmy Gossett said that Sharla, the new City Clerk, should be signing checks, A.C. pops up and said it wasn't necessary, that it was fine the way it was. The Fire Department doesn't want anybody but their own or their supporters signing checks

What I can't believe is Elsysa Turner is going to let Edwards talk her into doing this. Anybody connected to him has been drug through the mud and had their good name tarnished in this town.

He could care less about the people he uses to get what he wants. He is only concerned about achieving his end result and considers anybody he steps on or ruins in the process of reaching that goal collateral damage!!!!

If she stays in the Edwards /Brown camp, she will certainly regret it

It is true her husband is a fireman,(they like to be called volunteers - HA), and she will probably do what ever the firemen want.

She will gretly regreate this decision as one of the worse she ever made. Greenwood politics are cruel - nobody wins.

Unfortunately, you are correct. But it doesn't have to be that way. By her announcement, it looks like she is being supported by those that want it that way.

Breaking News!!! I saw her in church this morning and the rumor is that a couple of those nasty firemen go to that church. She was also reported signing code to one of them so it must be a Methodist connection. What do you think?

I told her this was a bad IDEA and she was running for all the wrong reasons.
