McKay, Leach get into shouting match at supervisors meeting, police back up called in

“I asked a legitimate question. I'm not going to say another word to him.”

Jackson County supervisors Frank Leach and John McKay got into a shouting match Monday and wouldn't stop until the board president called a recess that separated the two and cleared the board room.

If you havn't seen the flyer concerning Butch Loper in todays Sun Herald, I strongly urge you to get one. This just put the icing on the cake for Butch Loper.

I firmly believe that Butch Loper will "work for all the people of District 5 and Jackson County. He will not be obligated to or influenced by the "elite" or special interest groups".

I definitely am for a positive change for my District and truly feel that is what we have in Butch Loper. Come on folks, isn't it time that we all pull together and elect OUR candidate instead of the "big money" candidate???
