The only thing in Williamson WV is bars and a court house with 1 restaurant that I can tell and then I heard it belongs to the judge. Imagine that. It's all tied up in politics. No descent company will come in there. I read a saying on internet that says all trespassers in WV will be violated. And I truly believe that.

It's difficult because Williamson must compete with the big cities of Delbarton, Matewan, Kermit, and Gilbert. ROFLMFAO

Your so right. Williamson use to be a booming little town, but now we have no parks, community centers, or anything. A few families have been in control of things for years, and all they care about is making a dollar.

ARE you saying you think Williamson is a big city, surely not. I have news for you Gilbert is a booming little town because of the Hatfield McCoy trails and Matewan is on its way, with the new school and new trail heads. Jealousy is a sicknes I hope you get better soon.

No dipsh!t, I know Williamson is not a big city. I used to live in a big city (New York City to be specific), so I'm sure I know Williamson is not a big city. I agree, Gilbert is booming. However, itís only doing so because they stole the Hatfield & McCoy Trail from Matewan, which is the rightful place where it should be, and they have an iron grip on all of the key political positions. In addition, the county redevelopment authority is entirely run by the Gilbert clique: President, Vice-President, advisors, and Director are all from the Gilbert area. Also, if Iím not mistaken, the Assistant Director is from the Gilbert area, too. As a direct result, where do you think everything new is going in the county? THATíS RIGHTÖGILBERT!!!!. Jealous? No, I'm not jealous. I just think the leaders should work for the entire county, not just one town. Is there anything wrong with that? NO!!!! I mean really, what are they doing for Matewan, Williamson, Delbarton, or Kermit??? You got it, absolutely NOTHING!!! The saddest thing is that we, the rest of the county, all sit indolently by and watch all of our tax dollars head over to Gilbert. When are we going to rise up and put a stop to it?????

Mingo Man, I usually agree with things you post. And, I do not usually respond.
BUT, this time you're way off the mark. How can you live in Mingo County and seriously ask the question "How is a lack of businesses and jobs tied up in politics?".
Simply put, EVERYTHING is tied up in politics in this county. Dirty, Mingo County politics.

Look and listen.The politicians get their friends jobs and their family members and that is why other people can't get jobs in Mingo County.It's all politics here.Look at Tim Crum who got fired form his job today from the courthouse but look and listen and he will get another good paying job in the county.Politics.
lol

Tim Crum is a convicted felon so he got in trouble when he worked for EOC and then the county commission put him in the position he had in the courthouse.Give the felon another job now.

He's employable. He's got too many drugs to not be employable.

Thank you. I agree there are people who think many of the politicians in Mingo County are dishonest and crooks; but when I ask who they are and what they've done, no one answers. I'm not trying to be a smart aleck but I do not understand why anyone would object to new and additional jobs and busineses, something that benefits everyone. I would like to understand how dirty politics plays a role in this. Can you or anyone else give some specifics?

I think its the lack of a market. Mingo County's population is around 26,000 unless you have enough people to purchase services and products; businesses are simmply not going to get started or located here.

Williamson's worst lick is yet to come. When Kappy and his friends develop their land adjacent to the school, the town will be left high and dry. And, I hate to tell you, that the Doctors and Lawyers will probably move up there too, in their new plush offices. I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel for Williamson. We've lost the town, the Pack, and it's never coming back.

I hate how everyone's like "OMG GILBERT IS SO AWESOMEZ!" What do they have, 1 Dairy Queen? Jesus get over yourselves. I'd rather live in a city, close to a hospital, restaurants and groceries than out in the wilderness.

You're right, with their 25 mph speed limit, and the local police force preying on people like Delbarton and Matewan, a lot of people are like donkey poop, they're hitting the dusty trail and leaving.
