Vote Allan Cole for State Representative

If you don't want to vote Democrat, vote ALLEN COLE the 32nd district, Independent Candidate It's funny to watch the Democrats in the 32nd District go after one another - but it's to be expected as a twist of fate put one on the republican ballot and one on the democrat ballot: Here Democrat Candidate McNew tears int o Democrat Calfee: Kent Calfee No-Shows Again. Where is he? Who is he? Submitted by JackMcNew32 on October 4, 2012 - 9:41pm. Missing? I attended the Oak Ridge League of Women Voters Forum tonight at 7 p.m. I was joined tonight by Conservative Allen Cole. As typical, Kent Calfee was not present. The moderator ended up reading a statement provided by Mr. Calfee that said he had another engagement. I have to ask, what was more important tonight? The Roane Alliance had their Elected Officials Appreciation event tonight at 5:30 p.m., but Kent is not an elected official. So where was he? Presumptuous? House Speaker Beth Harwell seems to have already anointed Mr. Calfee as the State Representative for the 32nd District by default; however, Kent hasn't yet won the election. I don't believe that he should already be referred to as State Representative Kent Calfee by Speaker Harwell. Do you? The campaign is far from over. His actions are presumptuous. He seems to believe that he’s already won the election and doesn’t need to debate. I have participated in three debates so far. Kent showed up at the Tea Party debate, which ended up getting him in hot water for his misstatements. Kent failed to show up for the remaining debates during the primary season too. Unanswered Questions? The debates and forums give the people the opportunity to learn about the candidates. The voters have the opportunity to compare us side by side. I have to ask, do the people of the 32nd District really know the real Kent Calfee? Is he a leader? Is this how a leader is supposed to act? Even though Kent Calfee held a seat on the County Commission for 20 years, I don’t believe the people of Roane and Loudon Counties truly know the politician Kent Calfee. During the primary season, the voters only heard the talking points of a well-funded campaign run by outsiders masked by the now re-made candidate Kent Calfee. Unsuccessful Leadership? We know that Kent has been unsuccessful fighting against the disabled tigers at Tiger Haven. He also lost in his fight against the Crete Carrier, the trucking company that invested millions in Lenoir City and Roane County. Kent was even on the opposite side of the Roane County Commission and the County Mayor in his efforts to stop economic development. Unveiled! Is Kent scared to debate me? Is Kent even scared of the public? I have proven that I am accessible. I stand by the fact that I am not for sale as a candidate. I pledge that I will not be for sale as your State Representative. I will fight for bold reform for the 32nd District and all of Tennessee. Reform or Status Quo? I hope that you will take the time to understand who I am. I am for reform that will position the State well for the future. I hope you realize that Kent has always been for the status quo, even though he's trying to re-invent himself and seems to think that the opportunity to represent you is a foregone conclusion. I ask you to stand with me against the status quo. I am ready to work for you. I am ready to discuss the issues. I am accessible. I am ready to lead.

Kent Calfee a liar and a liberal

Kent calfee admitted it at the Loudon County republican Women's forum. In fact, Channel 6 news was there to record the whole thing. If you had been there, you would know NOT to argue a point you do not know about. Typical liberal.  (Oct 11, 2012 | post #6)

Everyone in Harriman knows them and knows they would not think faster than a wink to cheat anyone and everyone they can out of whatever they can. No different than Randy Ellis. Always looking out for number 1.  (Oct 9, 2012 | post #60)

Kent Calfee a liar and a liberal

Are you a moron or just a fool? Morons do not have a choice, fools chose not to make one. Any election commission can give any person voting registry history to anyone that asks. Read your facts before you spout off.  (Oct 9, 2012 | post #4)

Liberal Fergson backing liberal Calfee in GOP primary

Liberal Fergson backing liberal Calfee in GOP primary

Both of these fine men as you put it have been through several divorces. Both have cheated on their wives. Both have lied about their votes. Both never admitted to doing anything wrong. Calfee was in the middle of a sexual harassment case. Ferguson's wife left him after he slept with his secretary in Nahsville - on HIS DESK!  (Oct 7, 2012 | post #20)

Kent Calfee fought AGAINST economic development and LOST ...

At least Jack McNew is not a liar on his beliefs or votes. I prefer honesty in a politician not a liar like Calfee. At least with McNew you will always know how he stands. With Calfee - it depends on who pays him the most for his vote or even better yet, who he can lie to to hide his vote.  (Oct 7, 2012 | post #8)

Kent Calfee voted for OBAMA!!!! Ask the Roane County Election Commission for the voting records. This man is a DEMOCRAT!!! If you want a Democrat, vote for an honest one - McNew. If you want another option - COLE But Calfee is a liar and tried to hide his voting record.  (Oct 7, 2012 | post #1)

Biggest Theif In Harriman

The biggest thief in Harriman is your elected officials. It is idiotic comments by you people that allow them to continue to be elected. They steal your tax dollars and spread them to their best friends while you all bicker with each other over trivial issues. Keep commenting. Maybe then Chris Mason and Chris Ahler can take everything you own right from under you.  (Sep 29, 2012 | post #57)

Do you approve of Chris Ahler as City Councilman?

Not at all. He is just doing what Chris Mason tells him to do.  (Sep 29, 2012 | post #1)

Harriman, TN

Do you approve of Chris Mason, Mayor as Mayor?

Somehow this conversation became about Randy and not about Chris Mason... Is that due to his best friend Chriis Ahler and his cronies on City Council commenting to change the subject? I heard Chris Ahler is going to run for mayor when Mason's term ends. Same ole same ole. Harriman will never change.  (Sep 29, 2012 | post #21)
