I cannot believe that the majority of voters in Smith County took the bull and agreed with it. The majority of the voters kept the Mayor and a very vocal, opinionated, egotistical commissioner and voted to change one concerned official who only had the best interest of the whole county at heart.
They wanted you to believe that the Sheriff’s lawsuit was increasing our tax dollars – Bull – the schools with a 19 million dollar budget are increasing our budget along with the new Fair ground, Show Barn, Horse Arena, Show Stables, Senior Citizens center Etc.
Didn’t any of these voters read the papers ?????????? It was all there if you read it oh yeah they all graduated from the schools that are using the 19 million dollars for what – teacher’s salaries and student’s benefits or is it for the administrators?????
They tried to say the Sheriff’s Department in Smith County has more employees that Putnam County – look at -
http://www.putnamcountytn.gov/sheriff/index.p...

• 49 Commissioned Officers
• 55 Civilian Employees
• Total Staff @ Sheriff's Department = 104
• Total Staff @ Juvenile Detention = 15

Hmm only looking at the numbers they want to show – oops don’t forget the majority of the county is serviced by Cookeville P.D.
THEY ONLY THING THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IS THE SMART VOTERS ARE GOING TO SUFFER FROM THIS ELECTION FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS.

Could the 19 million be to cover the salaries of all the family members we have running OUR schools? The Smith County School System does not belong to the residents or students of Smith County; it belongs to the families holding the golden key. The taxpayers are just covering the bill. Our schools are being run by families. Want to complain, try complaining about someone’s husband, wife, aunt, uncle, brother, sister or father. If you don’t believe me try to go into our public schools and ask a question, better yet call Roger Lewis. You will find out real quick who controls the school system, its not us the tax payers or us the parents.

I think it is time for the residents of Smith County to stop whining about all the garbage that goes on in OUR COUNTY and stand up and make some changes. Take the time to see who appoints the people we have to live with. We need some strong leaders in this county that are going to make a difference and buck the system.

Kinda wonder how many local politicians made some pocket money with all this land sales and buildings going on?

Wonder if any money was made and by who for the Wal-Mart being built where is was being that Gordonsville would have been a much better choice demographically?

Wonder who stands to gain for the bridge being closed so all the traffic is diverted directly to Wal-Mart?

Don't you just wonder sometimes?
