I would like to tell the Mayor Good Job !!! With the bozo's you have to work with I say thanks for hanging in there and come election time I hope you are rid of at least two of them. One that has been there too long and fails to make a decision on anything. Wake up Smalling we put you there and we can take you out of office. Then there is the great toothless one has a beer or two behind closed doors but will not vote for the money to come to this town. We have a winner in him he does not even know what goverment is all about I say if he gets the pity vote again .For the sake of this town please send him to school.
Come election time please give the Mayor someone that can make an intelligent decision or at least the sense to do research. What do you think????
Mr. Carter is trying to get us a decent park so our children do not have to play next to a sewer plant. I have traveled many states and I have yet to see a park like these here. If you read the paper you see things are in the works people getting water that would not have it otherwise. In this day something like water should be available to all. If you have it you do not realize what its like to not. I say once again take a good look come voting time.

Are you on crack?

I agree that the children need a new park, but where is the city going to come up with the $650,000 just for the land not counting the development of utilities, roads, etc.? People in westmoreland bitch moan and groan over the tax increase, yet they want bigger and better things. Instead of buying that property why not pave the streets in town? Some of them are in terrible shape. If you drive through the square it is almost like a ghost town. Also, the big Expo Center now there was a MAJOR success!!! How many events are actually held out there other than the mule sales? Does it bring any income to the city? I personally dont care who gets elected because no matter what they will not have the money to spend to make any improvements. In fact Westmoreland will be lucky to not file bankruptcy in the next 5 years.

I think the roads here are in deplorable conditions I to dodge potholes and my car really hates it. What is the answer I don't know I would not want to see growth like Gallatin but we need some growth here. Your right everyone wants more but does not want to pay for it.Expand our tax base seize every opportunity to make a dollar. I did notice a new shop opening up we have to support these businesses. The Expo center I look at as least it drawing some money and people in town during the mule activities. I understand the mayor does attend alot of meetings trying to find any money that we can get for whatever improvements. We need alot of them we have been neglected for so long its going to be hard to catch up. The park at the sewer plant is just nasty and has to be unhealthy for our children. I just think come election time maybe we should vote for all the women that are running at least they know how to manage money and run a household. Men just sit and are pressured into their vote they do not have what I call b***s.

Mike Carter needs to wake up, look around, and see all the problems right here in Westmoreland. Hobnobbing in "all the meetings" he attends will not solve our problems. Nor will spending more money on overpriced property help us either. Wake up, Westmoreland! Start making much needed improvements in November! We need forward thinking independent people to take office - not "good ole boys" who have no thoughts and good ideas of their own.

Hobnobbing does help when your looking for free money to help this poor town.

Free money for what? The roads are a mess, weeds are everywhere, sidewalks are a mess, ditches are a disgrace, the "the white elephant" (the grand Westmoreland Expo which was said that Westmotoreland just couldn't do without) is just barely making it, the city is spending more than it makes. Could you add more? This only is the beginning.#1, in my opinion, is to install pride in Westmoreland. As has been written in a recent Tennessean article, when people and companies first visit a town, they first check out the main part of town. Have you been to the main part of town and really looked at it with an open mind? Read the recent letter from the editor of the Westmoreland Observer. That man sees real the problems. I would hope that somewhere down the road, somone sees the need for a grand scheme. Govern with a plan, don't govern by crisis management. In these forums that are held every two years, the candidates all say the exact two things: more jobs and and something for our young people to do. This year one candidate has said something refreshingly different: run the city like a business. Give this man a some attention! He could possibly lead us forward. I could go on and on, ma'am...this "town" has more problems that you and I could cover on this forum. Wake up, Westmoreland...don't let these "good ole boys" ruin this potentially beautiful and unique town.
