Well? Its been a few months since the last Town Hall Gas Card debacle which wasn't the only one to occur in the last few years.

When are the elected officials gonna do their job and hire a less expensive manager who can control the town's finances and management?

Who among this town's citizens who work at any job thinks they would still be employed after the last few years of our manager's misfires and screw ups?

DWI/Accounting Problems/Missing monies?

How many more screw ups does one person get?

When's the last time the town had a real audit?

For five years! I have watched and wondered why and how incompetence could go on and on without any consequences.

Exactly WHAT does HE have on the people who are supposed to oversee the town's management?

Is it land deals? Is he in cahoots with our elected officials and that is why no oversight? no accountability?

Wasn't Cherryville enough of a wake up call? Who thinks that Cherryville is the only town in this country with the same ills and problems?

The Bard has posted some legit concerns...and without the previous profanity and nastiness. I concur with the questions and applaud the new tone.

I think your question would be better directed at the Public Works department. They were the ones who issued the gas card and they have their own budget to follow. Barry reviews the department budgets. Until they are out of whack, there is no reason to suspect a problem. When it was, he found the problem and corrected it.

I think Barry has done a good job, but he's getting old. How about getting some younger blood like promoting Adrian Miller? He seems like a good candidate for the job to me.

You all lucky to have that manager, he aint as the girl that used to sit in his lap over there in town hall. That girl, mandy, somehow got a manager job in marshville. just look at marshville topix and see the stuff she is pulling there. land deals? huh, thats nothing. they fixin to run her butt out of town any day now. She must have taken lessons from him. Anybody know who can we report these managers to if the elected officials are corrupt with them? we stuck?

AM sucks. Lacrosse, bike lanes and yogging trails are not an improvement to Belmont. Providence, RI called, they want their ideas back.

Wondering why Mike Peoples has not replaced the "Special Projects Manager" that left cramerton almost two years ago??? Guess Cramerton was wasting money if they didnt need her to begin with. Was there a bit more to her duties as SPM, maybe some special projects in town hall after hours?
