Your statement doesn't make a lot of sense, If you want someone who is qualified, Why not support a person who has proven himself like Mr Kilby, he did more for our county then anyone who has ever served as county exec, and keep the county on a strong financial standing,Morgan county was respected by the state and federal goverments, for his leadership, thats why he was able to accomplish things, Morgan county has tried new blood when we elected Edwards and look where it has gotten us,

Becky Ruppe has a proven record she can and has done has much and more than any County Executive in the history of morgan county. it is all public record all one has to do is compare her accomplishments and you will see what l am saying. yes tommy was a good leader and got along with people but just how much did he do for morgan co. compared to becky. she was well known in the upper political offices in the region and nashville and could make things happen that was good for morgan co. some may not like the ideal of a woman being in charge but she by far has exceeded what anyone in morgan co has done as co executive for the county and its people and with compassion for the people.

I agree that ruppe and kilby were good county executives and their record of accomplishment for Morgan County exceeds any that ican remember. i would not say that either was more successful than the other but both were successful in the time they served certainly better than what we have now

You sure got that right. I wish we'd get someone besides these people to consider running. Anybody is better than the Ruppes, the Kilbys the Edwards, the Franceses and the Humans.

This poll is a joke.I wouldn't vote for any of the above. We've already seen that Tommy Kilby, Becky Ruppe, and Don Edwards couldn't get it done. And the other two proposed candidates would be worse.

Kilby also brought water to Frankfort area, Chestnut Ridge, and was a driving force in getting the Lancing Overpass built. Tommy has helped all of Morgan County. The Crouchs, Smiths, and RBs fools will lie about any of it.

Mr Kilby's accomplishments, Just to name a few, millions, and Millions $$$$$$ for waterlines, Lancing overpass, The new correction facility, Hwy 62 4 lane section from Wartburg to Petit lane, Walking tracks throughout the county, Grants to improve solid waste, Grants for Law-enforcement,
These are just a few things he did for morgan county, and i also want to acknowledge that Miss Ruppe continued to support and work to see some of these finished, Thats another difference when Edwards was elected he let all of the things Ruppe was working on end, because it wasn't his idea, So whats Edwards running on, maybe his dreams.

You are wrong, Kilby and Ruppe both worked hard and accomplished a lot, Those who received public water know who did it, and check the newspaper and you will see where Gov Bredeson and John mark Wendell gave all the credit for the new prison to Mr kilby. as the old saying goes the proof is in the pudding. Where were you or do you only have short term memory ?

unfortunately we live in a county where there are capable candidates out there, but they aren't interested in poltics so we get stuck with undesirales such a the Kilby's, the Ruppe's, the Edwards and such who are only out for themselves and cronies.

Big yellow grasshopper, It appears that all the above have been elected by the voters, who didn't think they were (undesirales)i'm not sure what that word means, maybe you should run and see what the voters think of you sir.
Mr Kilby has been elected 3 times as county exec, and 2 times to the state sen, something no other person in the county's history has accomplished, Why ? Because he did a good job and the voters rehired him, When the time comes the voters can compare his record to Mr Edwards and decide whom they want, for me i have already decided on Mr Kilby.

Whoever started this poll should have made a NONE OF THE ABOVE button because none of these proposed candidates are worth a dime.
