I agree with all of you! Metter is trying to become Atlanta! 5 years ago I would have laughed my hiney off if someone told me I would have to purchase a permit to add to my property and look what is goin on! Outsiders coming in and local can't find work...

Did it ever occur to the residents of the City of Metter and Candler County that the reason the City and the County hire personnel from out-of-town is because there is no one in the City or the County qualified to do the job? Best of luck to Ms. Evans in her new job!

Well that's funny maybe we should change our slogan from "Everything's Better In Metter" to "We don't have anyone qualified in Metter" it is amazing that the town has lasted this long with no one qualified. That doesn't say very much for you does it.

The job was open and advertisered for months. Miss Evans was the ONLY person to apply. But I agree. We should never let outsiders in with an education. Only locals should educate us, doctor on us, and help to govern us. We don't need 'em because we know all. We are special!

I am the first to admit that I am not qualified for the position of Better Hometown Director or for that matter, City Manager, Superintendent of Schools, County Administrator or Hospital Administrator. But I do appreciate and welcome the people that are willing to drive from another county to work in Metter. This also includes our doctors, nurses, teachers and retail workers. No one except Native Americans were born and raised in America; everyone came from somewhere else and look at what has been accomplished.

I know Ms. Evans personally and I know that she will do a wonderful job. She is passionate about her work and puts other before herself in every aspect of her life. Believe me when I say that she will do what is best for the community. If you ever have the pleasure of meeting this young lady, I feel that your opinions about hiring her will change to only positive ones!!:)

as long as she dont start adding more flowers and trees and extending more of those darn ugly curbs out into the streets. she needs to get rid of all the bushes or is that suposed to be flowers in the middle of the road on 121 south. maybe even remove some of the dead oaks on this same stretch of road.
sorry for you

It amazes me to read the ignorant comments posted on this web site! Lets only hire within Metter, and then we can have more of what we have now: higher prices for goods, a supermarket with rotten foods on the shelf, a hospital on the edge of going out of business, the highest taxes among the surropunding counties, no head of household jobs, an educational system that is pathetic, and so much more!

Metter's motto should be changed to the following: Everyone is a loser in Metter because we are a cesspool of racism, every other type of bigotry, xenophobia, fear of all outsiders and fear of change even when change is good for our town. If you can't give this woman a fair chance to do her job well simply because she is from another town, then I can't wait until the day that your completely useless and backwards bigoted town becomes a ghost town. Good riddance to it!
