You are so obviously the best candidate. Good fortune with your efforts!

Smartest candidate of the bunch. Best video of any released this campaign. With actual facts and sound reasoning. Didn't try to scam the voters with some cock and bull story about 3 foot floods destroying houses time and again. Didn't act like Sgt. Schultz pretending he knew nothing while his wife was getting fined $350,000 for double billing the Federal government.

But he did relocate his business to Ridgeland! One less business paying taxes and driving Jackson's economy. Now, he wants to lead Jackson? I am sure he is a great guy and very capable; but, how can you ask for a Jackson resident to vote for you when YOU left Jackson! You cannot lead from behind, he should know that.

No one running is perfect; but, people like you (6:19) are why a lot of good, successful people stay away from public office. You are not doing your favored candidate any good by being an attack dog!

The only two candidates I have experience with are Ashby Foote and Charles Barbour. Foote is a very smart guy. Charles was good a picking a last name, but that's about it.

Barbour won't even bother showing up at a council meeting. Carson will give in to every demand that other council members suggest. Higher taxes increase funding for JPS by increased tax mill in NE Jackson etc...

Gimme a break. The Ward 1 Councilperson is powerless to stop any and every "demand". Powerless.

Ashby is the best candidate in the race. Too bad most of his votes are in Margaret Barrett's ward.

Have you looked at the heading over this ad?

Carson is too late regarding 44% water loss. The $90,000,000 Seiman's Contract is supposed to accomplish that.

Roads will come, as will drainage, regardless of who is elected. The new public works director probably has something to say about his ideas but I am sure she will patiently listen to whoever is on the Council.

The Sieman's contract is a joke. Where have you been?

Anonymous said...

It may be a joke, but it is performance based and if it does not accomplish an agreed level of savings, Siemans will be paying the City of Jackson. I agree with you; it is not the best contract the City has entered into. The new meters are more accurate so far. Previously, around 6 out of every 10 tested were reading a lower than actual usage. This not only under-billed on water but also wastewater amounts.

Anyone who thinks Jackson's 40+% of water wastage is due to the old meters doesn't remotely know what they don't know.

Anonymous said...

Nowhere in 9:46 pm comment did it say meters were the only reason for water loss. Rarely is a problem as large as Jackson's water supply a single solution effort. There are more items than meters being currently addressed. And there will be more needed after the Siemen's Contract.
I still feel Carson's harping on the 44% water loss is misleading as much of this is currently being repaired and/or replaced. Veracity in campaigning matters to many.

Please show us where Carson has been "harping" on the water loss. Link?

I'm sure he is a very qualified, nice guy but how in the world can he convince businesses to move to Jackson when he moved his own business to Ridgeland?

1:32 give it up. Nobody but you gives a shit.

Because the douchbags relentless posts NEVER get any feedback. Duh.

Me thinks you are the same disgruntled blogger who was probably hired to play antagonist for Cochran. Two or more great Jacksonians have their business located just north of County Line Rd. in that area: Jim Barksdale and Ashby Foote. That does not disqualify them, in my opinion, from serving and supporting the City.

Except from you. DUH.

Okay, I live in Madison, I own a business in Jackson and I think Foote is the best candidate and would benefit Jackson.

Anyone worried about Foote's office being in Ridgeland to the point that they would vote for an inferior candidate needs to realize that they are part of Jackson's problems.

Why would anybody running for a job in Jackson blow money out the window (or his ass) on advertisements on this blog site?

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
