Or perhaps leaving both Johnson County and Mountain City off his campaign website was simply an “oversight.” From a letter to the editor of The Tomahawk in Mountain City:
I have recently visited the 2010 re-election campaign web site for Rep. Jason Mumpower [R-Bristol, Johnson and part of Sullivan Counties] and noticed while the Tennessee General Assembly House Majority Leader from Bristol has posted hyperlinks to both the City of Kingsport (Sullivan County) and the City of Bristol (Sullivan County) that for some reason Mumpower has neglected to include hyperlinks on his campaign web site to either The Town of Mountain City and the Johnson County, Tennessee web pages. I find this rather ironic because Rep. Mumpower is himself employed by a Bristol based media and public relations firm owned by Rep. Jon Lundberg (also of Sullivan County) that produces web content for Corporate Image clients.
I imagine that it must be nice for Johnson County residents to apparently be held in such high regard by Rep. Mumpower, even though he has thoughtfully provided visitors seeking information at the Mumpower 2010 election web site with hyperlinks to two different comic book publishers.
Oh, well – if the hopeful TNGA House Speaker Mumpower doesn’t share the passion of struggling Johnson County residents with finding employment, preventing foreclosure on their homes, or even in securing affordable health care, at least the many hurting families in Johnson County can at least share in Rep. Jason Mumpower’s childlike delight and passion that he apparently finds both collecting and reading comic books…after all, this 2010 election is all about Jason Mumpower.
‘See you in the funny papers, Johnson County’
