I said this before, but I think it is worth saying again!

When the people who run the Election Commission, The County Commission or any other commission or office in Cannon County stop trying to be "political" and start trying to govern for the entire community then and only then will we see a change.

A breath of fresh air and Sun light upon our government departments is long overdue.

I salute Commission Chairman Stotzel's leadership in bringing clarity, accountability and certainty to all our government departments.

Year after year, audit findings and recommendations have been ignored or delayed, and have become patterns of yellow flags.

I hope the Budget Oversight- Audit Committee will play a strong role in assisting the County Commission get all the accounting books and procedures into proper status so that Citizens' confidence can be restored in our County.

I am so tired of hearing all this bickering. Stop the power struggles and change our community.

Why? Because we have a four lane highway that will bypass this community, and if we do not get to cooperating and find ways to keep our businesses as well as our tax dollars in county we will not have a county to worry about.

An article in Cannon Courier dated Monday, November 8, 2010. Gannon said that the Reach Director asked for a leave of absence. If the BUCK stops at the County executive desk and a leave of absence was given as stated how was the BUCK stopped. No where can I find where the County Executive terminated this individual. So how did the County Executive correct the issue?
If the BUCK stops at the County executive desk the citizens of Cannon County should be told who, Okayed the checks to be cut for the items listed on the audit report.
If the BUCK stops at the County executive desk, who gave him the authority to give county items away, without the commissioners approval.
An article in Cannon Courier dated Wednesday, February 29, 2012 9:54 am Cannon County Executive Mike Gannon issued the following statement this morning concerning the findings released in a Special Report issued by the Tennessee Comptroller’s office on Cannon County.
”I accept full and complete responsibility for the shortcomings the auditors found with my office's oversight of REACH," Gannon said. "To borrow the line from President Truman, the buck stops at my desk."
Just as the issues with our nation, states and counties today the problems are created by the individuals at the top because of control and power but when the issues becomes known, First words out of most elected official’s mouth are the BUCK stops with them, even if issues have been repeated on the states audit over the last five years now it is damage cotrol time.
But my Question is Where, When and how long does it take to get the BUCK Stopped.

Paul, you are looking for concrete answers to questions that do not have them. As you witnessed first-hand at tonight's meeting, conducting county business is a complicated, ever-evolving, ever-changing process.
