Gary hasn't been mayor for sometime. Jeff Jackson calls the shots. Gary is Jeff's hand puppet. Jeff is the reason Mt. Carmel is a joke, also the old man, Lundsford... What a complete idiot. Time to take the trash out and the time is Nov. 6th. Taxes have been raised 2 times under Gary. Eugene Christian supported a tax increase both times. Why support that. Were taxed enough as it is. Why pay Jeff $70,000.00 plus a year, and thats not a misquote. Is he really worth that ? Jeff is the reason the cameras are up, Jeff is the reason a red light is up. Jeff is the reason Lundsford writes tickets at 59 mph in a 55 mph zone and is a complete turd to everyone who pays his salary. Jeff is the reason a gentleman lost about everything when the camera car caught fire and burned his barn down. Jeff is the reason the town is a joke. See where this is going. Bye Gary, bye Jeff, bye Kenny......

The last guy comments from Louisville tn, He don,t know the facts,this is the same old BS that Larry Frost has been telling all over town.Larry is the turd .Gary or Jeff Jackson does not run the town, it is the WOMEN in in city hall that run the town.Again this guy sounds like Larry frost New Police Chief that lives on Main Street, after Larry Frost fires the Police Chief.

Mount Carmel man in Pucda is probably right about who So Be It is. I think the Man who lost everything was well compensated for his lost by the speed camera company's insurance. Jeff didn't park the speed trailer at that location. That was the little lady who works for the EMS now after leaving the town. There has only been one tax increase for the town and Mr. Christian wasn't on the board when that occurred because he had gotten beat in the election before. I think the giving tickets at 59 in a 55 zone is just an outright LIE.
So ot will be

Mr. Pucda and Mr. Mt. Carmel guy, I lived in Mt. Carmel for 22 years. Supported the town as much as possible. I moved out from Mt. Carmel to get away from the b s. I have been gone since 2006. And you say I dont know the facts, Im sure we all are in that boat, but I did not live on Main Street and why would Mr. Frost put me in as Police Chief. Thats one job I would not have and if I did want to get into the Law Enforcement field, it sure would not be in Mt. Carmel.
So it will be

real Mt. Carmel guy. The speeding ticket in question was not a camera ticket. The ticket was giving by Mr. Lundsford. The two gentleman this happened to are friends of mine. The father recieved a ticket from Mr. Lundsford for 63 mph in a 55 mph zone. His son recieved a ticket from Mr. Lundsford a week later on his motorcycle for 59 mph in a 55 mph zone. He went to talk to Jeff and it was a waste of time.... And yes Mr. Christain did support taxes when he was in office. Its all documented at City Hall...

I attended the Mt. Carmel debate and my family had our minds made who to support before attending. Over all the debate went well and showed true colors of some canidates and there views. We have known Mayor Lawson for sometime and supported him the last 2 elections. My issue is the honesty and integritey that I thought he had and after the debate I was disappointed. He stood up in front of me and the towns people in attendence and lied about not drinking ? We have visited his "bar" on Fort Henry Drive years ago and had drinks with him. WOW... just shocked he lied like that. Im sorry Mayor Lawson... On other business, a few of the alderman spoke who were in attendence, Ms. Worley Davidson no show = no vote. Mr. Hale, Mr. Wolfe. Mr. Bewley was good... The rest, have a good day.

I attended the "meet the candidates" also. Mr Lawson's exact words were "he didn't drink beer". The video is on times news if you want to confirm what he said. I also visited the Sound Traxx cafe he owned. I have know him for over 40 years and never saw him drink a beer. He told me he can't stand the smell. Seems like a lot of candidates suddenly never drink. Does that mean never drink since last week, last month, last year. Mr. Lawson didn't lie but i would really question some others.

I usually don't take time to get involved in the mist of people comments but when someone misrespents the facts about someone who I have much respect and love, who has shaped my life and the person I am today is so many ways..I can not sit by and let others who read this who don't know him believe these statements. As the person above said his excat words were "I don't drink beer" and that is the truth...One thing I can say about my dad is he tells you the truth if you want it or not and he has never been one to just tell you what you want to hear. If I want an honest opinion about something from what I am wearing to a major life decsion he has gave me his honest opinion even if I didn't agree. I can say that he is mayor now and contiunes to run for reelection because he is a compassionate person who cares about the town, its residents, and employees. He wants the town to be a place people want to live, work and raise their family as he has his for the last 35yrs. He doesn't benefit from being Mayor, he doesn't own a business in the town and doesn't own property other then what he lives on. He does it because he cares. Everyone is going to have an opinion and if you don't care for him that is fine...but show some dignity and respect by being honest in your debate about why he's not the right man for the job. Check your facts about taxes, budgets, finances...its all public record that anyone can access...And for the record, my husband and I both have had tickets either camera or officer and you know what we paid them just like everyone else and I have never been treated special and have never ask to be because that is how I was raised. Pretty Honest if you ask me!! I don't care if wins this election b/c I am always a winner because I am luckly enough to have him as my dad forever, MT Carmel has been lucky to have him for mayor as long as they need him to be!
So it will be

I was at a resturant eating breakfast this morning in Church Hill and seen the new Mt. Carmel Mayor Larry Frost there with several people with him. I couldn't help but notice Dustin and David Dean setting with Mayor Frost. Are they the next Chief and Asst. Chief ? Why were they there with him ? Looks obvious to me whats going on.....

I will agree the women in city hall ran that town. Jeff he can't do anything unless it's approved by city hall. Also kenny wouldn't write a ticket unless he felt it was needed speeding is speeding why don't you talk shit about T.H.P they will pull you over for 2 miles over the speed limit and I've been pulled over by kenny for speeding I broke the law I deserved the ticket. Jeff must be doing something right he's been there since 1999 as chief and work before that as well. And as far as next mayor my vote will be CHRIS JONES all the way
