Hey Fincher & Nunnelee listen up!
This week in Corinth, Ms. the incumbent Mayor Jerry Latch(D) was easily defeated by a 2 to 1 margin for reelection by newcomer Tommy Irwin(D). Virtually everytime Tommy Irwin showed up in public to give a speech at least ninety percent of it revolved around creating jobs. Corinth has been hit extremely hard during the recession especially with the recent announcement that Quad Graphics will close its doors in a few weeks which means another five hundred people will hit the unemployment lines just in time for the holiday season. Stephen Fincher and Alan Nunnelee should learn a lesson from Mayor elect Tommy Irwin. Just like Mayor Latch, their democrat counterparts Roy Herron and Travis Childers are relatively non controversial candidates. Neither one of them is a foaming at the mouth crazy Bush hating, 9/11 truther type or ethically challenged democrat that you see in other areas of the country. Sure you can beat them over the head with the Nancy Pelosi stuff but at the end of the day that doesnt help John and Jane Doe pay their bills and have a good quality lifestyle in the Booneville, Ms and Dyersburg, Tn areas like a good paying job would. As Mayor elect Irwin proved this week with his huge landslide win over a non controversial incumbent who presided over a bad economy. When you make jobs your main issue and put these other things one the backburner. You'll be surprised at how big of a win you will roll up on election day. Alan Nunnelee I know your aware of Corinth and what went on this week but don't forget it over the next six weeks and Stephen Fincher it would help you tremendously as well to learn what happened in Corinth this week. Roy Herron is a nice man but his record on job growth during his quarter century in office is a failure on an epic scale.
