Thomas is young but knows his role and actually took class in Charleston. He also has the experience under his belt working closely with Debbie Fogus. I don't think the city or locals gives Thomas enough credit and looks at the "age issue". It doesn't matter how old someone is because the important part is taking the responsibilty of the leader of White Sulphur Springs. I feel both can develop and support policies that have the best interests of the citizens in mind and graciously entertain suggestions from the populace on how to improve the local living conditions. Emmitt can be overbearing at times but he knows the laws takes care of important matters. He knows this city from one end to the other and if elected I pray it doesn't go to his head or disappoints the locals. So I give thumbs hope for both of them and wish them the best of luck because Debbie needs to be replaced and so does some members of council. Just wonder if he will keep Chief Hylton because his job isn't actually protected like the other officers.

I dont want to be hateful to Thomas, but I must express my sincere concern with him being elected mayor. Thomas is a very nice young man, but I must give my reasons for doubting him. I know him from school, and he was not very bright. You can take all the classes you want, but it will not improve your ability to think on your own. I seriously doubt he could make informed, educated decisions about anything! I also have experience with his work ethics. He is lazy. He would say that he had done tasks assigned, knowing he had done nothing but stare at the wall! All this critisism is harsh, but completely necessary considering he wants to run the town! He is very nice, but that does not make up for his lack of intelligence and drive.

I believe Thomas wants to be mayor for all the right reasons, but I doubt he possesses the skills for the job. I respect his dream, but not at the cost of the town.

Hello this is Thomas Taylor and for the comments that resident left I think you need to tell me who you are and talk to me face to face. I know you are entitled to your opinion but to say that Im not bright and lazy is wrong and nothing but a lie.
I am running for Mayor of White Sulphur Springs because I truly believe that White Sulphur is the greatest town in the state and with my ideas, and enthusiasm I can lead this town into the future.

i dont think think our citizens will elect a boy to do an adults job, but keep the dream thomas. how would this twenty year old boy know more about being a mayor than debbie, who has served our town for ten years? my advice to any boy aspiring to politics is to get a real education, and wait for your balls to drop before you get full of yourself.

I will not run a negative campaign for the office of Mayor. I am an adult and capable of making my own decisions, I know there are people on this web site trying to discourage me and get me fired up. I will not retaliate so it is not worth your time typing anything negative.
Thank You

Then by all means prove it. Set your arguments up in another place than Topics! I understand you defending yourself on here but let it go! This is a site to vent on and not a major campaigning forum. I hope for you the best.

Actually no.. that was not the intention of Topix, it was not intended to be a site to vent on, but that is what ignorant people have made it to be. The uglier the better some think. It was intended to be a forum for intelligent people to share in the happenings of their communities and discuss those happenings. It was not intended to bash the person you most dislike and ruin reputations.

I believe this town needs change! So What Debbie has been running the show for 10 years, we are obviously heading in the wrong direction. Thomas Taylor is a very articulate individual and knows a lot when it comes to government. He is the recorder now and is the only person at city hall who is ardent about turning this town around. Chris Hanna is a great guy and I think a lot of him, but as far as running our town and managing our tax money? No thank you....HE IS A CAR SALESMAN!.........ENOUGH SAID!!!
Are you Serious

And what makes you think Thomas Taylor knows a lot about government? He shows up once a month and takes the minutes of the Council Meeting. Does this make him an expert? How many other hours does he put in during the month at City Hall helping with issues? I bet if you check you will find out that he is not there but once a month at a meeting and that is it. Matter of fact, why don't you check and see how often other members of Council are at City Hall helping with issues. Mayor Fogus works a full time job and then goes to City Hall and takes care of things there. I have personally seen her vehicle there at all hours. Quite honestly I don't know how she does it. I don't know anyone else that would put in the time she does. You people think we need a change, I am scared of the change we may get.

I can't say how much Thomas is in City Hall but we do know he is in Charleston whenever needed for meetings fighting for things WSS needs. I don't know any other member taking that kind of devotion. He is a very educated young man with dedication and I believe he took classes also, so he improved his ability to be mayor. Thomas isn't require to do that but he does because he wants to see WSS rejuvenated, which it needs to be. Debbie is only in her office a few times a week if that and Linda is the one who does her job. We see people being trashed all the time on this site but I bet on election day people that haven't voted for years will be there. Best of luck, Thomas!
