After yesterdays election , I suppose the people have chosen whom they want to direct the town.
Bill Pauley would not have been my first chose. I feel over the last thirty or so years that he has held office he has worn out his ability to keep Marmet 1.Safe 2.Clean 3.And Moving Ahead with Other surrounding Towns.
Bills Character is not challenged but his own health(because of Age)has taken toll. His hearing is bad, his train of thoughts are off(concentration).He is even showing signs of tremors(nerves).
The Drug situation in Marmet is running rampant, the community watch was a good move but not enough.
The entire town needs a GOOD CLEANING from one end to the other.
Sidewalks are falling apart(most have not been replaced in over thirty years.
Perhaps a street cleaner could help with the dirt.Or MORE Hosing down the streets.
Homes are looking like slums, especially on the northern end of town, closet to Charleston.
Homeowners/LandLords should comply with all building codes and not be allowed special consideration due to them owning more than one partials of property.
ALL Residents should be treated equal. One ordinance for all.
The Police Department needs a total Revamping, if your the chief then know the Towns weaknesses and show yourself out in the public not just in City Hall.
And to Bill Pauley......get out and visit all the citizens, learn what is important to the TOWN. Clean the Town up, Put people in charge to see that this done. And enforce the Towns Charter. AND MOST IMPORTANT, LET THE PEOPLE KNOW YOU CARE. After all this maybe your last four years in office. You will be surprised how many citizens will respect and support you.
