How is fire protection adequacy measured? Is it the number of firefighters / fire trucks per 1000 people? Average response time? How does district 3 stack up?

Great questions regarding issue of rural fire protection! Thanks! One of the principle issues is the fire rating code which governs insurance rates. These rates are high outside of city limits.

You've set a new standard for public service in Madison County with this website. I can't imagine the other supervisors ever conceiving something like this. Keep up the good work.

Please help Dick Hall continue his efforts to prioritize the Gluckstadt Road /exit improvements over Reunion Parkway.

It is SO OBVIOUS that Gluckstadt needs the work done first. I DO NOT want my county tax dollars (i.e. Bond Issue) spent on Reunion when it benefits Private Business. Let Reunion and St. Dominics offer to pay for Reunion.

Supervisor Smith, your website improperly characterizes Reunion interchange vs. Gluckstadt interchange as an either/or, or that one should be prioritized over the other. They are completely separate projects, funded differently, both of which will greatly benefit your constituents. Your position should be to pressure Dick Hall and the Miss. Transportation Comm. to move the (primarily state-funded) Gluckstadt reconstruction up on MDOT's priority list AND pressure Dick Hall to get out of the way of the (primarily county-funded) Reunion interchange project. The issue is NOT whether one project has priority over the other. Don't let Dick Hall get away with that spin. We need more roads, like the 463 to 51 Reunion Parkway corridor(and the resulting commercial development) NOW!

You are still an illegitimate supervisor no matter how much time you spend trying to convince people that you are qualified to serve. You will not get a single thing for your district because of your deceipt. I know you are optimistic because you have formed and alliance with Mr. Banks, David Richardson, and all other socialists, but here is the math: 3=5 and 2=0

I am a Madison County taxpayer/land-owner living in Ridgeland. I will be very upset if my taxes are raised due to an interchange that I will never, ever use. As I understand, only one (or two) neighborhoods in the entire county would benefit from this. Our taxpayers should not have to pay for this. That is not right.

Please do not vote for the bond issue.

Thank you for including the residents of your district in this easy way to keep us abreast of what is happening in our district. I have always thought that if a person who is in office is honest and truly trying to help, then something like this could be done. Don’t be a politician – be a resident and neighbor who wants to help and has to be a politician to do it.

Great web site. It is refreshing to see someone step up and look at what is in the best interest of Madison County and its citizens. Its about the "action" taken rather than personal agreement. Please continue to keep us informed.

We saw you at the Parkway Penecostal Precinct when we were working election day, but were too busy to speak to you! Thanks for the great job you do and for looking out for your constituents.
