The consolidation efforts of the Towns of Ridgeway and Shelby as well with the Village of Medina has hit a wall from what it appears. The Town of Shelby went on record at their last town board meeting, with appointed Mayor Andy Meier, that Ridgeway and the Shelby board no longer want to pursue a grant to further look in to consolidating. Hmmm at that point appointed Mayor Andy Meier went on record stating that it was his intent to see the disallusion of the Village of Medina from here on out. At the recent Village Board meeting he basically was called out to the fact and his statement was that "he wants to see the Village disolved". This arrogant individual whom was fired as village attorney appears to be on a vendetta with only one thing in MIND, disolve the village. He is up for election to keep is appointed position in March. We have a very short time left to get candidates and people involved to get him out of office!!!!! He is a detriment to our nice little quaint village, and the fact that he has used grants and his politicol prowess to further his own agenda. An example is the building his office is in, he used his influance to get zoning changes to put in Loft apartments, yet has not even completed a required elevator in that same building without the use of grants to accomplish this. He is also on the Orleans Renassance Committee that got Bank of America to donate a supposidly delapitated building according to the Code Enforcement Offical, in which the building is now owned by "Not for Profit" and the 400,000.00 evaluation is off the tax roles. People WAKE UP AND ENGAGE IN YOU LOCAL POLITICS! He is destroying our legacy and the consequences will be disaster.

I could not agree more. that man has had nothing but his agenda on his plate since he took office a few years ago. He is going to make his mark on this village and leave his legacy of destruction in his path. Notice how he hand picks the candidates who run for the trustee office? Talk about a bunch of yes-men. not a back bone amongst them all.

Meier's first agenda when he was first elected as trustee was to fire the village attorney, a local resident who had 18 years experience in municipal law and then appoint an out of town attorney at a much higher cost. And why did he push that through? Well, it was because he was fired as village attorney a few years before because he is incompetent. this guy has to go. got any idea as to whom would make a good candidate? Petitions have to be in by February 7.

This county needs to get schubel and meier out of every town. Funny thing is the clueless dolts that pass for leaders keep reappointing them.

Oh what a deadly web we weave, when we stay in the closet and look the other way on what the Republican Party likes to preach. And that is nothing but Anti Gay slurs for those who are wondering.

I think you posted this in the wrong conversation. We are talking about elected and appointed officials in the village. I don't see any reference to anyone's sexuality mentioned or even inferred.

Oh no Mr. Idiots All Around, it is relevant. When you have a duck that quaks like a duck, then it is usually a duck. And when you are gay and play the role of a hetero, now that is hypocrisy at it's highest forum, and then they parade around disguised as members of the grand ole party, now that is FUNNY!

I am sure there would be individuals all over the area, myself included, who would be jumping for joy if in fact a particular someone could be proven to be something other than what he pretends to be. the fact of the matter is, no one has any proof otherwise. Innuendos aside, he continues on with whatever lifestyle he so chooses. damnit.

And speaking of the GOP I see where Barney Frank has announced that he is going to marry his partner Jim Ready (yeah, that is his real neame). Oh wait... Barney Frank is a democrat! Gee, lot of that kind of stuff going around, I guess.

So what are you saying BGA. The 2 are domestic partners. That would explain how such a young buck has advanced so high up and the money behind him.

The people running those 2 towns and village aren't capable of doing it. In no time they would be in the same position. You have to be willing to cut deeply and make people have to work for their pay again . They Wont do it. Good idea if you have strong leaders that wont bend though.
