Carter will be fine. Unlike Coppinger, he is educated and has always made his living in the private sector as an attorney and entrepreneur.

Coppinger would likely starve if he was ever forced to make a living in the real world.

When the sunshine law was violated in redbank, a lawsuit was filed, and phone records of commissioners were subpoenaed and the truth came out. Dalton Roberts indicated that a lawsuit in this case would not be unlikely.

Would be a real hoot to hear Bob Moon pressuring Joe Graham and Jim Fields to vote for Jim Coppinger.

Dalton Roberts had it right on Friday.

This is naked connivance on the part of the commission, particularly Fred Skillern and Larry Henry.

That it is taking place is no surprise. That it is taking place openly shows that these men have no regard for the rule of law nor respect for the citizens of this county.

They run this show and "its how we've always done it. Ain't it boys."

I commend Mr. Dalton Roberts for speaking out and for calling a spade a spade. It is my sincere hope that as this county grows and becomes more sophisticated,its residents will demand more accountability from its leadership.

Moon Crony allison12 needs to read up on local politics. As this newspaper reported yesterday Carter was not one of the two attorneys involved in the complaint against moon and bales.

Will be interesting to see what Mackey gets out of this. Word is he wants to be the next mayor of chattanooga, and this deal is the first step in that process.

It saddens me to see that our community is still run by country bumpkins like Skillern and company, thats the south folks.
