Do you believe that Covington City Councilman Keith Dalton should resign his council seat for his failure to have a local business license for years?

This man has run a business illegitimately for nearly 30 years and some of you are willing to trust him to help run your city? Eyes Wide Shut. Plenty of sheep around here. Flocks in fact.

Dustin you should really learn the meaning of big words if you are going to use them ! Illegitimately WOW . Newton County education at it's finest .

Okay so he doesn't have a $10 license...His business is one of the best ran in the county. The only reason it's a big deal is because of how successful it is. I Noticed no one complains about the Business's ran out of Covington Place. Where it says in H.O.A. you can't Run a Business out of your house. But let's Nit-Pick at the man who puts more into the community then everyone on this page put together has. His a Great man. But yall are like leaches sucking his gains.

I have a little more than a Newton County education.. perhaps you should learn how to use a dictionary.

il·le·git·i·mate (l-jt-mt)
1. Against the law; illegal.
2. Born out of wedlock.
3. Grammar Not in correct usage.
4. Incorrectly deduced; illogical.
5. Biology Unacceptable as a scientific name because of contradiction to the international rules of nomenclature.

Cotton.. rules are rules. The reason it is a big deal is because it takes money out of the community. Regardless of who it is.. if he was a responsible steward of the community, and a good business man he would do things by the book. Apparently he doesn't think the rules apply to him.
