I voted to have someone new in my ward? I hope what I hear is not true that the one we needed replaced is going to be placed back in there? This is the same in ward 4 I am in 3. The people of our wards voted not to put these people back in office, so why would they be reinstated on the council the people have shown what they don't want?

I agree to the extent that the people voted out the incumbents, which is fine. But otherwise not to appoint them to the open positions, would result in 50% of the members with 0% experience in city government. This would further hinder the process. Trust me there are many ordinances and rules to follow and experience is the best teacher. Each of these women have contributed to city

The decision is Rick Davis's with council approval

There is a reason they were voted out. Why have elections? Why not just fill the open positions with the others that were running? Just a waste of time and money. They may have experience but what Caruthersville really needs is change, not the same ole thing that obviously hadn't gotten us anywhere.

Amen

Change is good we all have to learn and have the opportunity to get the experience needed to do our jobs and go on in life. I think we need some younger people the older ones are to set in there ways please let's not put these people back in. Give some one new a chance different ideas we sure need it? Just look around town everyone needs to voice there opinion.

If it were not for the women that lost, the water dept girl would still be there stealing our money resulting in higher and higher water rates! It takes people with guts to stand up and demand justice. Do U think any of our newly elected would really stand up to do something about the stealing in the water dept? I think not.

If only 12 people in Ward 4 had changed their minds, the outcome would be different. So I will promote the common person that will stand up for us, regardless of social standing. I really think she did too good of a job for more people in all wards, more than we deserve.

This is your opinion and yes I have mine. How do you know that the new council members want stand up? I think you are wrong this town needs change it's at a stand still. This is why I voted the way i did. People need a chance just like the old council members. When they started they were also new? Let's give other people, with new ideas a chance. I don't want to sound negative but we are going no we're like we are.

I agree that change is good, but we have 100% change in the mayor position and 50% change in the council positions. Some consistancy is also desireable, so why not choose the incumbants, at least they are mature?

Well if this is the first decision for the new Mayor then this is going to be a long 4 years. How can he go against the wishes of the towns people. I say the look in how to get him out of office, this is crazy

So who would you select? If you are refering to the opinions expressed in Democrat Argus, I would have expressed a different view. Many don't do facebook. A very poor sampling I would say and more than likely very slanted, So who would you select?

The mayor is going to do what's best for him not the city? He needs to hear what the people want and it's new blood on the council. If the people wanted old blood in there they would of been voted back in. Times are changing and we as al city need to change with the times. So do what's right give some other people a chance.

You have new blood; in Ward 3 you have B.T., and in Ward 4 you have Nick. A lot of people like Barbara and Sheila, even the ones that didn't vote. So we want Barbara and Sheila Mr Mayor.

As a voter in this piss hole place I am so disturbed by this news if true. Our past town council was a sick joke. Our young people are on drugs or drunks. We have no jobs for us or them. We finally have a new mayor and some new members on the council which gives hope to those of us here. Mr. Mayor I beg you to please not put any people who got voted out back in any position. You didn't wait all this time to finally get this important position to make stupid decisions. It is sick to say but dying seems to be the only way to get rid of these worthless people. Please respect the wards of your town and believe that they made the right choice in ousting these two lousy women out of office. The voters have spoken with their votes and if the election process isn't valued then what good are elections? Give the people in this town a chance now to have hope and get behind these new people and yourself. Change is the only way begin in the right direction. So many of us are begging for a true leader and we have put our faith and vote in you again. I voted last time for you and proudly voted again for you this time as well because I believe you want to turn this town around for the best.

Please not Tom McCall either. That is another waste and worthless person who isn't for improving anything in this town. He is not the right choice. Can someone name some random names in those two wards that we can all pick from and agree on. I can only vote in ward two so I can't vote in the other ward. I would like other names of people in each ward then we can discuss who the best candidates we think could represent us.
