Jones made wrong vote at last Jackson meeting

Written by 

To the Editor:

At the most recent Jackson County commissioner meeting at the Balsam-Willets-Ochre Hill Volunteer Fire Department, Commissioner Mark Jones once again showed his true colors. His siding with an anti-capitalist, anti-commerce group like the Occupy Movement is consistent with his voting record as a commissioner.

One would think in a county, which has experienced a negative growth rate and an unemployment rate in double digits (potentially due to Commissioner Mark Jones strict construction ordinances), he would take a more pro-business stance. Sadly, he has instead chosen to side with a movement that endorses the destruction of capitalism and seeks to promote the entitlement society.

Fortunately, this is an election year. The voters of Jackson County will have an opportunity to give Mark Jones more time to spend railing against the evils of corporations and capitalism while his opponents can get back to work, growing Jackson County’s economy and providing for their families.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
