|So Voyles, Adams, and Goss could unanimously vote that only ONE of them will continue to exist--just like that. Would any voters out there trust any of these individuals to be the sole decision makers for the county?|

|I think we should encorage our legislators to pass the provision that would not let employees of a governmental unit sit on a governing board that would control their salaries. People need to make a decision whether to work for the government or run for office that would control govenment, not both.|

There currently is only one decision maker. His name is Moe.
Curly and Larry are just the two warm bodies that do whatever they are told.

|I agree with nobodyimportant- lets hope the legislators pass the conflice of interest and nepotism bill. How many times have these people on a board given themselves a rais? The Mooresville Town Council gave the town employees a $750 bonus and look who sits on that board- Jeff Cook, a policeman, and George Watkins, who is the firemen and police chaplain. How many other people got a bonus this year? And they needed a raise because they didn't have enough money to pave streets and fix sidewalks. Dah!!|

While I agree with the intent of HB 1005 to keep Town employees off the Town Council, I must set the record straight regarding your comments directed at Cook and Watkins. George Watkins volunteers his time to the fire and police departments in Mooresville and Morgan County. He does not collect any pay or bonus for the services he provides to several public agencies in Morgan County. Jeff Cook was not present at the meeting when bonuses were awarded. Therefore, he did not vote on this issue.
While we did reduce the number of streets paved and sidewalks repaired in 2011, several areas did still receive maintenance. We will also continue to perform maintenance on streets and sidewalks in 2012.
While everyone is entitled to their opinion, I think you should make a little more effort to get your facts correct before you attempt to public embarass good people who volunteer so much of their time to make Mooresville a better community. I supported the $750 bonus for all full time Town employees because we have not had adequate funding to give an annual cost-of-living increase in the past two years.
