One comment on this article is how can a Mayor of Spruce Pine represent Waynesville like Joe Sam Queen did for Haywood Medical Center? I think Mr. Hise would represent Newland, Crossnore, Banner Elk, Bakersville,Burnsville, Marion,Old Fort Marshall, Mars Hill, Hot Springs, Maggie Vally, Canton and all of the 47th District. Joe Sam Queen needs to go.

I am a Democrat and I have voted for Joe Sam Queen every time he has ever run. I thought he did a good job. I will NOT vote for Queen this time. He knows beyond a shadow of a doubt the information in his ads are bold face lies. The Town of Spruce Pine has too much money and businesses are critical because they will not spend money. The Town of Spruce Pine has a 100% fund balance. The annexation was requested by a citizen. I called the Town about water rates. Spruce Pine water rates are among the ten percent lowest in the State of North Carolina. I know of many people have called Queen to request he remove the lies but he has not. All he can say is this is what I have.

All Mitchell County Democrats needs to call Joe Sam Queen and request Queen to remove his lies in his ad about the Town of Spruce Pine's budget.

Joe Sam Queen attacks his opponent, their wives or anything else. He does it so people will not look at his private life. I think Queen has lots of things he does not want the public to know.

Joe Sam is in serious touble and his only option is to get dirty and attack his opponent. Any discussion of his record or personal business results in a horrible defeat. Most people here would be excited to see Joe Sam defeated if it didn't mean the republicans would take control of raleigh.

Ralph, I like to spend and trade local because I see it impact out local economy moreso now than ever. Im saying that I would like to cast my vote for a local candidate such as yourself. But please I urge you to earn my vote. How can I cast my ballot for you to such a high position, when currently as mayor you can't get Cheif Hollifield to put his grandchild in a car seat. We spoke about this via phone last week and I have yet to see a change. If managing staff as mayor is problematic how will you handle handle a greater responsibility. In summary earn my vote, fix this problem and don't be a "Pinhead".

It is time for Joe Sam Queen to go. He is a slize ball. He does not care about the people of Western North Carolina.

I don't know much about Joe Sam Queen, unfortunately, but I am not a big fan of Ralph Hise. Honestly I think the "brains" behind Ralph is his mom, who has run unsuccessfully for office in the past and maintains a large presence in Mitchell County politics. Ralph just isn't that bright.

Anonymous you are as funny as Joe Sam Queen who says Spruce Pine has a deficit, annexed one house and has a the lowest water rates in the state. Hise can crunch numbers in his head faster than you can write them down. I have never heard anyone say anything except he is brillant, even the Democrats.

I agree the issue is for the Highway Patrol. But if one follows the "Chain of Command" then the Mayor would be the one to contact to speak to his Police Chief. Correct?

Fat, dim-witted, redneck momma's boy. Sure, that's what we need to make it all better.
