I have met Mr.Young which is more than I can say for Mr.Moore I have lived here 5 years and never met him ..as far as the city counsil meetings..what good r they when any problem u have has to be approved through the payor first b4 it can be discussed and he will not allow it...WHAT THEN??? I believe Mr.Youngs intentions to be true ,he thinks teen and pre-teen age children need somethin to do in this town,i agree,Our code enforcement officers house looks as bad as alot of the others with the trash pilled on the porch and in the yard just trashy ,One of Mr.Young ideas also are to have an Open Door Policy with him ,,You have a problem come to him... ANYTIME>>Waskom needs cleaned up ,we should be like Jefferson but were FAR from it..and just because he has no experience means nothin ..thats like sayin Mr.Bush was one of our greatest presidents because he was in office for 8 years ...lol..Yes Mr Young does own one of the dilapidated buildings down town but he just aquired it,,it takes time..If you Know Mr.Young though you would know that he has taken (at least 6 that i know of)other dilapidated houses in town and refurbished and made them new ,Clean..You see him at the Post Office or around town which,I'm sure u do Stop him talk to him He'll talk to you..I'm sure also if you have seen Mr.Young you at least got a smile or a "hey how you doin today""maam or Sir"..he's just that kinda man, but no one will stop a complete stranger and campaign to them..thats disrespectful,and a little to pushy..and do u believe he should be able to make it to every house in and out of this town..thats just silly..I believe he does not attend city meetings same as I do not..Ur voice is NOT heard unless You've approved it through the mayor First..you can't just walk in and voice your oppinion or complaints on something and that to me is one of the BIG things that needs to change about Waskom...

I have lived in Waskom for 4 years now. David Young is one of the few people I actually know here. I have seen him buy property and fix it up in an attempt to make the city a better looking place. He is also a business man. I dont know if these things qualify him for mayor but surely he can do the same or better than the man whom is in charge now. As far as I am concerned two dollar stores in one town is not much to brag about. Maybe our priorities need to re-locate and change will be necessary.

I too have lived in Waskom for 12 years, and I couldn't tell you who the Mayor is, let alone see him out and about!!!! I do however know Mr. Young, he is a fine gentleman,very courteous and friendly and very outspoken person.He is just what type of person this community needs. He is a very hard working man,and very helpful to all kinds of people.To say that no one knows him is pathetic. Why, I've seen him a many day out helping strangers just passing thru or a sole with no one else would step-up and help!!! Please Vote May 8th for Mr. David Young. He may not know the ins and outs of the laws, But, I am positive it will not take him long to get into the swing of it, if he puts his heart and soul into it as he does his daily life. Thank You!!!!

People, Do you even know David Young. Does he have experience. He is talking about tobacco and drugs and keeping them out of our kids hands, he has a cigarette package in his pocket. Im sure he has good intentions, no doubt, im sure he is a nice man, people, experience and the know how is everything. You Wanted change, just look at our current president. You want that kind of change??? If you want change, go talk to the current mayor. He will listen and talk with you. Have you tried that??? Or have you even attented a city council meeting??? The city has National Night Out at the Fire Department. Have you ever attended one of them. Jesse Moore has. Have you ever attented a K9 demonstration behind the New Hope apartments that is put on by the Police Department. Last year was a real good turnout. Even Jesse Moore was there. SUPPORT not CHANGE!!!

All I can say to (RESIDENT) is this...something is seriously wrong with the fact more than 50% of the residents in this town don't even know who the mayor is..How many of our city codes are being violated with NO response from our city counsil.I have tried to speak with the mayor on many different occasions only to be told he WILL NOT hear me.What now?Obviously you are not in touch with the people of Waskom,for you would know..and for all the little extra things that Waskom does like the national night out..etc...thats part of the problem, if your not a who's who in this town ,you dont even know whats goin on here..Lets try letting the whole town know about these events and not just the elite few who think there somebody!! Obviously you have something of personal gain to keep Mr.Moore in office..WHY else would you want to keep a man in office who's been mayor for 15 years and over 50% of the town does not know his name????A man who from experience Will not speak to you of your concerns,a man whom you NEVER see walkin or shopping in his own town.Why attend a City Counsil meeting, when the mayor has to approve anything you want to say before your able to voice you concerns? What would be the point?
