2 of chairman’s picks for records committee work for local government

Last night the Blount County Commission voted to create an ad hoc committee to write an open records policy for Blount County government.  The committee will consist of 5 members: 3 appointed by Commission Chairman Jerome Moon and 2 appointed by Mayor Ed Mitchell.

Jerome Moon has chosen himself and Commissioners Grady Caskey and Mike Caylor.  Both Grady Caskey and Mike Caylor are local government employees.  Grady Caskey works for Blount County Schools and Mike Caylor works for the City of Maryville.  The 5 member committee will have at least 2 members who may have a tendency to favor the government over the citizenry.

  1. Hey Ed, pick me as one of the 2 candidates for the record’s committee. Blount County is run and managed by self-serving individuals, with little regard for our citizens who pay taxes and their salaries. I think I can
    manage a little truth in government for the county.

    Real transparency there. Looks like the taxpayers got moon’d by Moon……again.
