Go Meads!

I agree with Meads. I am tired of Commissioners wasting tax payer's dollars. They are always expecting us to pay more...we don't have more to pay! Mr. Trueblood sure knows how to spend money that we don't have. We are 74.8 Million dollars in debt! Enough is Enough!

Meads spot on!

We need new blood on the commission. We need a business person who understands the need for fiscal responsibility. Meads will be a breath of fresh air on a stale board and I predict he will save the county taxpayers a bunch of money and have our county government getting the most bang out of every buck.

Mr. Meads is definately the man for the job. He thinks like a businessman and his ideas are practical, sensible, and it is obvious he has taken the time to research and talk to people to see if they are feasible. That is what is expected of a county commissioner. He knows Pasquotank County better than anyone currently sitting on the board. Plus, he doesn't think like a politician, he thinks like a businessman whose heart lies in this county and its people. That is the kind of person I want representing me.

Forward thinking

I really like Mr. Meads "back to basics" ideas. The county isn't utilizing funds wisely and not getting the biggest bang for their buck. Time for "new" blood, not Trueblood!

If the schools are adequately funded as

Mr. Trueblood states, something else is going wrong. What is it? Why can't Pasquotank keep their schools up if other counties can? Pasquotank voters take note.
