Scot Allen announces his candidacy for House District #59 seat

Scot Allen announces candidacy for State House of Representatives—District 59

I am Scot Allen and I announce my candidacy for the office of State Representative for House District 59. The District is composed of the Reservoir area in Rankin County, part of Flowood, and part of Brandon. I humbly ask for your vote in the upcoming election on January 8th.

My Wife, Marley, and I live in the Mill Creek subdivision in the Reservoir area. We have 2 daughters, Elizabeth, age 5, and Emily, age 11, who attend Rankin County public schools. Marley and I are small business owners. I am a real estate broker. I also operate a trucking firm with 12 trucks in service and over twenty employees. My proudest accomplishment is creating jobs for other people. Creating jobs for others is what motivated me to seek this office.

It seems that each election cycle, for local offices, county offices or state offices, candidates are “conservative” and “pro-business” during their campaigns while trying to get votes. However, once the elections are over, the yard signs are taken down, and the billboards are converted to other uses, the officials forget their pro-business promises. Once in office, they bend to the pressure of special interest, and find that the easiest path to follow is to curry favor by handing out our tax dollars.

These people don’t understand a fundamental principle necessary to being “pro-business”: every dollar spent on taxes is a dollar not spent on payroll. As incredible as it sounds, this simple fact is only faintly understood by many if not most of our elected officials. Why should they understand— most have never felt the pressure of meeting payroll every week, knowing if you fail, your workers and their families will suffer.

I am running for this office as I understand this point they all too often ignore. The multiple layers of government which regulate and tax businesses in our country, state and county place too heavy a burden on the backs of job creators. I am joining the fight for jobs and economic growth.

My platform is simple and my commitment to you is simple and straight-forward. I will promote creating jobs without being influenced by special interest groups with their campaign donations and sweetheart deals. To back up this commitment, I have decided to finance my campaign for office out of my own pocket.

I humbly ask for your vote on January 8th to serve as your State Representative.  Please contact me at 601-832-9595 for further information.

Well, if he is going to self finance, then a hundred grand wisely spent will buy the seat. Pony up and get on with it.

In a world of liars and thieves,who lack commitment to promises made upon being elected, to find a man like Scot Allen is rare. He is a family man with high morale values and has the ability to make a difference. He is a man I am proud to call my friend and I will support him 100% now and in the future.

James - he may go in like that, but after a few terms, he will no longer be the same man. Nobody can go into politics and remain uncompromised.

I disagree Cynical. I think if a man is strong in his beliefs, morales, goals and confident that he can make a difference, there would be no reason to believe that he would fall below his own expectations or fall into the corrupted ways that we see happen to often. In these positions everyone has a choice and unfortunately, the wrong choices have been made to benefit the elected officials instead of the people. Wouldn't you like to see changes? Promises kept? Someone who would benefit the people rather than themself? This I believe can be performed by Scot Allen so he has my vote.

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.

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.
