Lost Collegiality Between Cosby and Maize

During the county mayor primary at a variety of debates and forums, independent candidate Lewis Cosby and Democratic candidate Ezra Maize had a cordial relationship. Maize often quizzed Cosby, a financial expert, on aspects of the county budget. In one memorable encounter, Maize whispered a question to Cosby on the stage during a debate.

So Cosby was shocked when Maize raised the possibility of a “deal” when Cosby dropped out of the race and endorsed Tim Burchett. Cosby reacted angrily at his integrity being questioned and Maize quickly apologized saying his remarks were taken out of context. Cosby, a millionaire from media investments and other business interests, is not likely to be needing a county job from Burchett.
