I knew the Beckley clique would find a way to usurp the will of the people and keep the same old gang in power.I agree Chris Hall is a weasel,Tom Sopher is a racist [and I dare him to deny it.] Atterson is a coward and Worley is a sycophant .I wont forget any of 4 plotters.

So funny to see the African Americans get so upset because one of their own didn't get it. The majority spoke and Cedric loses again!!
Nice to have someone who has actually run a business and dealt with finances take over as Mayor. We don't need a former police officer with zero business experience as our Mayor.
Just always so funny everytime an African American person loses something that they have to trash the white folks.
The majority didn't speak.4 puppets of PUGH voted after figuring out a way to beat Cedric.You can count on one thing nothing will change to benefit the common people in Beckley.

The city had 2 million in reserve 2 yrs. ago now they have 500,000 thats it. The big project is a complete failure (a parking lot thats not safe to psrk on) that went over budget a million dollars and it's contractor is now suing Beckley for over half a million for payment for building the spoil lot on Harper Rd. for Shrewsbury (kick back by Pugh). Beckley is going tio have big problems if we continue to see special interest get their way just like M.S.U. that File, Pugh, Duba & Shrewsbury were on the boards. Bill Obrien is a good man it is up to him and his duty to clean up the city crooks that has got the city where it is today.And yes Chriss Hall is a weasel along with the bigot Tom Stoffer who has made racial comments against blacks and women.

Since I don't live in Beckley I don't have a dog in this fight but I kinda got the impression from reading the report in the newspaper that Worley had given up her pursuit of the mayor's seat so the council would have a clear majority to vote for O'Brien. I too wonder how being a radio announcer equips one to be mayor of a decent size town...one of the most important towns in southern WV. It's where I do a lot of shopping, socialize, and see doctors. Makes me wonder if a deal wasn't reached to allow Pugh to continue running the town while O'Brien is a figurehead only.

Just wondering.

Yes Bill O. is a good man ,but he has too many friends in the Beckley clique to do what needs to be done.Does he have the guts to fire and replace these people he has known for so long ? I doubt it.

We're watching ,I will see if he treats all the same but he could be more like his brother Steve than we think. He needs to prove to us that he has the guts to get rid of some of the crooks still there. File #1, Deems#2, Cannon#3 & a few that are phoney jobs like Jeanne that has missed over 100 days last year and works for Bob Cannon. Cuts need made!

One thing I would like to see is all elected positions be set on a term limit like the President is. Let them have their 2 consecutive terms (8) years and then thats it. This way, 1 person does not have a Monopoly on the city. One thing I would really like to see Mayor Obrien look into is the way some of the departments within the city are run. Maybe look into replacing a few department heads. One thing I have noticed with the Police Department, is since Chief Billy Cole retired, the department has had a lot of turnaround with employees and officers. I mean I have seen good officers leave the department because they were not fairly treated by new administration. Another thing is I think the new Mayor needs to look into the budgets of every department and allow them to use the funds they need, not what they want....

Totally agree with BeckleyFan when he said black people got their panties in a bunch because Cedric ( a colored man ), didn't win.

Get over yourselves. Just because he's white doesn't mean he won and just because he's black doesn't mean he lost. The majority ruled and Obrien wins it. I strongly doubt that any member of council thought " that Cedric sure would make a fine mayor. His years of distinguished law enforcement and years of city council will prove to be great assets while in the mayors position. If....if......only he weren't black. Oh we'll, Bill it is ".

You all forget that another colored man , Mr. Tony O. Martin, lost as well. Nobody is pulling the race card on that one!

Idiots.
