    Wilma, pull your lower lip over your head and swallow. Nick has never been seen at a meeting for somebody so concerned. He knows who I am, I'll gladly take the suit. Like she said, he's running for public office and is choosing to live in a glass house. He is supported by organized corruption if he is backed by the SBA and the likes. Just because you haven't been on the receiving end of local corruption doesn't mean it hasn't made plenty of FAMLIES suffer. Go read the legal matrix for the county. Ask the people of Grand Point who the county left hung out to dry. Lots of facts are posted on other sites and here that clearly show we have a good ole boy network running the county. The interests they protect are for the blessed insiders while our community gets the shaft. Nick will run from the real issues just like Phony Tony.

    Come on - it's ridiculous to make a for profit business as some referendum on someone's character. With few exceptions, by definition a for profit business is self serving. Taxes are part of expense of running the business - he's not running the business in order to pay taxes - so how much he pays in taxes is irrelevant as a qualification to how he would run Walton County.

    There are a lot of questionable commissioners who ran businesses, look at Tony Anderson, who in my view is a complete failure for his district.

    Give me someone who understands the issues and runs on protecting what we have and controlling growth. I don't hear that out of any of the commissioners. The only thing slowing them down are private citizens and that means we have a runaway situation.

    ANY candidate that is running shouldn't even be considered if they haven't taken the time to get first hand information on the issues. If they don't attend meetings, do their own research and prove to be intelligent and independent enough to make their own decisions based on such, then we don't need them in a leadership position! Of any kind!!!
    I don't care how "nice" they are! If they don't have the ability(intelligence/knowledge) or strength (backbone) to do the job efficiently on their own, then we don't need them!!! I'm SICK of weak leadership!
    If they don't have time (or take the time) to educate themselves on issues prior to running for office, do you really think that will change after the election?????

    If memory serves, the businesses Tony Anderson had a hand in or partnered with someone else were DISMAL FAILURES, as was his marriage. His first year in office has been scripted for him by the likes of Cecilia Jones, the SBA or his secretary who just happens to be an inlaw/outlaw of Lloyd Blue's. At every BCC meeting he reads from an already prepared dossier which has been carefully crafted for him on the issues which come before the board. The man doesn't have a mind of his own and couldn't wipe his rear end without instructions or Cecilia and the SBA's help. He knew nothing about government or how to run a business and he hasn't improved with time.

    Back to Trey Nick...I see or read comments all the time on social media about how good the food is (I have eaten there myself) and hear wonderful things about Nick as a person. I also know the civic work his father was/is involved in. My daughter worked for Mr. Nick from the time she was a freshman in high school until she graduated. Met her now ex husband there and had her wedding reception at Basin Bayou Nicks but none of that means I'm willing to support Trey Nick as a candidate for County Commissioner.

    Totally agree with you on understanding the issues and controlling growth which we have had NONE of in NoWal. In fact we have 4 commissioners with the majority of their districts being up here and we don't even get lip service out of them. Now Trey is running and doesn't even live in the district he's running for but then again, neither does C. Jones. Is he actually going to live in District 4 or is he going to pretend or fake it like C. Jones does? If he's not invested his district (actually living and owning a home) there is nothing to prevent him from ignoring his constituents. Just ask Tony. He is from NoWal and has forgotten all the people he served as a humble mailman in exchange for the grandeur of SoWal....YEP bought and paid for!

    If Trey is backed by SBA and the pave paradise crowd then he's walking into a very bad time. Now that people have seen tony be the puppet that was forewarnwed ... It will get mighty ugly.

    I don't know who Mr Nick is, but I appreciate the idea that he has put himself out there. I look forward to meeting him.

    What are the boundaries of District 4? It was my understanding that it included a major chunk of the county west of Freeport.

    Hard to tell if Basin Bayou is in District 4 or District 1 from that map. I will ask my friend who lives by Nick's.

    From my understanding Melanie Nipper does NOT live in her district.

    Your understanding is wrong!

    Melanie Nipper rents a home in her district, lives there and meets the requirements of a resident of her district according to state statute.

    Rents? She owns a ton of land with a house on it in District 2. Wonder why you guys never called her out about that? You continuously call out Mrs. Jones for it and now starting with Mr. Nick. Hell yall even called out Mr. Anderson for moving to District 5 three+ years before he was elected. Double standards much?

    What don't you understand?

    She is doing what is required by law! Cecilia Jones is NOT! No one called Tony Anderson out for moving to District 5. He is required by law to live in the district in which he was elected to serve. Tony Anderson was called out because he turned his back on the rest of the County.

    What are you talking about Jones does not? She owns and lives in a house in her District. Do you not know this or are you just trying to spread fake news?

    You always make that "fake news" claim too and have yet to prove it!

    So, you expect us to believe that Cecilia lived in District 5 when she was commissioner???? So, she didn't live with her Husband for 4 years and then miraculously was living back at her homesteaded residence in her current District just days after being defeated in shame.(I've got some ocean front property in Arizona for sale if you believe that.) She will lose to Glidewell this time and be convicted on her ethics complaint so they are trying to recruit another Tony puppet to keep the vote of three. Just because lots of new people are around now, it doesn't mean the rest of us have forgotten how we got bent over.... I hope Lake view Too meant enough is enough on the recruited political people, not the questioning of their motives on here. There are still people here who don't won't history to repeat itself.

    Im just saying how can you believe that Jones is guilty of living in a different district than the one she represents but when Nipper does the same thing (rents in a different district than her homesteaded residence) you guys dont seem to care. Ive actually never seen you, kaydance, or Suzanne ever say one negative thing about Mrs. Nipper. Id venture a guess to why that is but I dont want my post to get deleted.
