An asshole can't get much tighter than Gerald Steen's is right now.

Actually, KF, 'the silly season' is simply continuing unless a miracle happens before 5:00.

I can't stand D.I.Smith, but he could beat Steen this time if he had the balls to run. Reckon there's a certain level of comfort to be found in Alderman At Large in Ridgeberg.

Candidates as of 5 PM today

Madison County you better get Erin Rose and Jim Harrreld elected as your supervisors or you are all screwed!

Anonymous said...

Who the hell is Erin Rose?? No one seems to know anything about her.

Robert Winn for Tax Collector?!?! Damn, didn't see that one coming.

Everyone just knew Lee or Trey Pace were going to qualify for tax collector and their mamma pull out. She really should just go away. She hasn't been in the collectors office 10 times this entire last term. The employees in the collectors office are the rudest people the county has.

I wish Winn luck.....

How does somebody who doesn't even show up for work have the support of the electorate. Pace has thumbed her nose at the county taxpayer for at least twelve years. I don't know if all those women who work for her support her or not. Not sure how they can and still have any form of ethical standards.

Jim Harreld is busy celebrating an anniversary. Ain't got time for no politics.

I'm fred we bout to see another four years of the Banks/Griffin show with Steen as odd man out.

Poor Chip, but at least he's trying. By the way, where's Karl?

If Banks goes back in theres quite a few that will need to start cleaning their offices out.

Anonymous said...

Kingfish, you need to post a current candidate list.

Somethin' Gonna Get Did.. said...

When Banks reclaims his old ride and parking spot, he will need a third vote. Crosby is no longer around, Howland is deceased and Steen is, as always, for sale. Griffin's grandbaby's momma is in charge of personnel now so Banks gonna need to check with Griffin on discharges and such, which means a high-diving board and sno-cone machine at 'The Lake'.

The ghosts of TimElvis and Davidson Richardson be loomin' large. Madison finna be back to bidness as usual. Rudy lookin' for a house up in here too.

Why in the world would District 4 voters elect Banks or Bishop back into that office?
If they do, they get what they deserve!

Anonymous said...

You're right 5:22. Just like the residents of Steen's district get what they deserve by not getting off their asses and running a competent, honest, ethical candidate. People don't give a shit. How difficult is that?

Anonymous said...

Banks get his OLD ride back??? Hell, if elected, he will get a spank brand new loaded black Tahoe, his daughter in law will be back at probably a 60k+ a year job just like Griffins grandbabymomma. Griffin is currently the only sitting supervisor that has a county provided vehicle. A loaded out top of the line Z71. Why a loaded Z71? His daughter, Judge Martina, is the only justice court judge that has a county provided laptop, ipad and ihone. The three other jc judges do not.

From The Author Of Peyton Place.. said...

Speaking of Griffin's daughter....look at the amount of money the county spends on sending her to casino retreats all over the country. And the Board has voted unanimously for this madness. It's all about staying in favor with Griffin and buying his vote.

I'm not familiar with who Banks' daughter in law is but Griffin's grandbabymomma has received fifteen thousand in raises, a new job title and is being fast tracked to department head...all in the past two years. And most of that was before she actually decided to 'marry' into the family.

Anonymous said...

I sent a email to Mr.Bishop about a road in Madison County over a year ago. Guess what, no response! He might get five thousand a week, but he should have responded. That being said, when I would call or email Mr Banks, he would respond within twenty four hours. Therefore he will get a donation and my vote.

Anonymous said...

Karl is slick. It's sad that I would take him over Bishop. Maybe Jim Harreld has a shot.

Glad Sheila Jones and Randy Tucker will both be back.

I'm a white, south Madison County republican who grew up in Canton around the Pace family.
And I love that family. But I'm voting democrat for Tax Collector. Kay Pace is taking a paycheck and she isn't working any hours to speak of. And that office is so terrible. Anybody can do better. They are clueless at the tax collector's office. I like Kay a lot. But if you are going to accept the paycheck, then you need to be putting in the work. And she checked out a long time ago.

Paul Griffin has definitely put plenty of friends and relatives into county jobs. It's sickening.

Anonymous said...

It'll take more than Chevrolet-Name-Recognition for Harreld to defeat Bishop, much less Banks. He better get busy with some publicity and a platform. Steen's campaign manager is available.

Meanwhile, someone reported that Baxter actually woke up at a Board meeting the other night.

As stated earlier, District 4 voters get what they deserve if they elect Banks or Bishop.

5:23 - Kay Pace is an arrogant ass. She was arrogant when she ran the drive-in at 16/43 and she's even more so now. Like you I grew up in Canton and have known the family as long as any one. As said in an earlier post, Kay Pace has thumbed her nose at the residents of Madison County for far too long. If it were not for a few employees in the collectors office and one or two others outside that office, the Madison county tax collectors office would be a complete and total failure.

Count your blessings that neither one of her kids ran for the office. I'll vote for Winn just to see her gone.

Anonymous said...

@6:40 I like Kay and her family. I also ate at the drive-in at 16/43. I bought cars from W.K. before he passed. But you are correct that she has done the taxpayers of Madison County dirty. She refuses to work. I also will vote for Winn just to see her gone. She's taken too many paychecks that she didn't earn.

Anonymous said...

I've never heard of the 'drive in at 16/43' But, I've only lived here 30 years. Sheesh! What the hell?

Anonymous said...

It was Penn's Drive In before Pace Drive In. There was no such thing as a Penn's To Go when it was Penn's Drive. Home of the original chicken nugget!

Anonymous said...

@6:23 Kay and W.K. Pace had Pace's drive in. It was in the northeast corner of the 16/43 intersection. Kinda northwest of Froggy Hayes' liquor store. When MDOT realigned the intersection, it went away. I remember when they got a PacMan video game. It was awesome. It was probably torn down late 70's or early 80's I would guess.

If the tax payers of Madison county re-elect this woman it will be obvious that they don't care that they have another do nothing elected official. She never ever comes to the 3 offices. Only time she's been to a BOS meeting was to pine for her employees a raise.

I don't figure this will get posted but it wasn't publicized at all that there was a search warrant served on her residence and her twice convicted felon live-in boyfriend was arrested for selling drugs out of her house.

Her race horses got out, wandered on to highway 43 and it resulted in the death of a motorist.

A fire was started on her property that burned several hundred acres, destroyed other peoples property and several million dollars worth of pine timber......BUT NONE OF THE ABOVE WAS HER FAULT!! She blamed it squarely on someone else.

Anonymous said...

Kay gave a rambling 15 minute speech today at Grip and Grin. That office is a total mess and getting worse. Sometimes people need to know when to step down before their situation becomes embarrassing for themselves and the office they represent.

Anonymous said...

Not only is Kay Pace never in office, some of her employees are so rude and disgusting, they are very disrespectful to the citizens of Madison County. If you go into her Canton Office it is so filthy. I also heard that she and Myrtle Rayborn, her office manager who should’ve gone home 15 years ago both work from home. The Tax Collector Office really need a big change.Hopefully Winn can get in and make a big change like he tried to do in the Canton Police Department before Truly oust him for Vicki McNeil.

Anonymous said...

I'm voting for Kay's opponent. The Tax Collector's office is the worst run department in Madison County. And Kay is just sitting back collecting a check. The folks in that department are clueless. They have no leadership, no training, no anything. Because Kay isn't providing it.

Anonymous said...

I am too voting for Kay opponent. It’s ridiculous how thst officd is but there are some nice employees in canton. I went to pay my taxes a few months ago and a young black lady waiting on me. She was very kind and very sweet. Myrtle yelled at this young lady and u could see the fiery come in her face , she answered her but the tears were in her eyes . Myrtle embarrassed her and did not care. She stay professional not only to me but to others in that officd. It’s a shame Kay allows this to happen. I told that young lady keep doing what’s she’s doing. I even knowing Kay and Myrtle fir a long time and it’s just a disgrace . I am Republican and proud but I believe in what’s right . I will be voting for Winn. It’s tome for Kay and Myrtle to go home like the rest of us did.

Folks don't need to be beating up and bashing on Myrtle. The pressure of running the 3 collectors offices by herself is huge. Its because of the ABSENT DULY ELECTED OFFICIAL. You can ask anyone that works in the office complex on the square, not collector employees, and get the same reply from everyone (if they have balls enough). Pace is drawing a paycheck for doing nothing at all for the last 8-10 years. She may start coming to the office now that there is some one running against her.

Robert Winn would do well to focus of the this and numerous other points listed here during his campaign and maybe it will open county tax payers eyes and force questions to be asked.

Winn has my vote

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.
