Candidates Make Plans for Supervisors Races

Former Lauderdale County supervisor, Eddie Harper qualified Tuesday to seek the office this year.

Harper decided not to run for re-election in District 1 four years ago, and Hank Florey won the seat.

Florey is also running again. Both men are Republicans.

Other supervisors made plain their intentions at Tuesday's board meeting.

With the exception of District 3's Craig Hitt, all said they have or will qualify to run for another term.

"I will have an announcement within the next two weeks as to my plans for 2011," said Hitt.

Hitt was first elected in 1997.

At least two others have already qualified to seek the District 3 supervisor's post, Jerry Shields, who ran in 2007, and Josh Todd, whose father, Dwayne Todd, previously served as District 3 supervisor.

Tuesday, Hitt was elected president of the Lauderdale County board of supervisors, and Joe Norwood, vice-president, for 2011.

    Isn't is strange that people say they want change, but Ray is voted in every time by an overwhelming majority? Check the stats on his prior elections. People love him, but they don't want to admit it in public. So why does he continue to do so well on election day? HE WORKS FOR HIS PEOPLE! He isn't a star on the camera, and his isn't eloquent with words, but that isn't the job he was hired to do. If you live in his district and you have a legitimate need from the county, he makes sure your needs are met. That is his job. Sadly, I know many people in other districts that can't seem to get their supervisors to do anything. I really don't care what Ray does in his free personal time. That is his business.

    District four needs a change, almost willing to vote for the pet monkey that Ray ran over. We need help.
