Turn the homeowner into the NMED personally. Avoid the incompetent middlemen.

YOU VOTED FOR HIM, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT? YOU PROBABLY OUGHT TO START ASKING YOURSELF WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GRANT MONEY OBTAINED IN 2007 FROM DUB WILLIAMS TO INSTALL SEWER UP GRIFFITH DRIVE FOR ALL OF THE CITIZENS THERE ON GRIFFITH. PERHAPS YOU SHOULD ASK ARMSTRONG WHERE ARE THE SEWER LINES MOVING TO LA CANADA LIKE THE PLAN CALLED FOR THIS YEAR. THE DOWNS HAS ALREADY PROMISED THE STATE THEY WOULD DO THESE THINGS IN THE PLAN THAT IS APPROVED AND SENT TO THE GOVERNOR EVERY YEAR. THESE PROMISES ARE EMPTY AND ALL YOU ARE GOING TO SEE NOW IS INCOMPETENCE, BUMBLING, AND CORRUPTION.

HERE'S THE REEEAAAAL WINNER...WAIT 'TILL YOU TRY AND SELL YOUR PLACE IN AGUA FRIA. THEY ARE RUNNING THE LAND VALUE THERE INTO THE DUMPS. JUST ASK THE FOUR FOLKS ON GRIFFITH, THE ONE PERSON ON LA CANADA, THE THREE FOLKS ON ESCALANTE OT THE TWO ON AGUA FRIA DRIVE WHO ARE TRYING TO SELL THEIR HOMES SINCE EARLY 2008. NO ONE WANTS TO MOVE TO A TOM ARMSTRONG-RUN RUIDOSO DOWNS.

AND IT'S NOT JUST IN AGUA FRIA. OUR NEIGHBOR HERE ON THE WEST SIDE OF TOWN IS ALSO HAVING ONE HeII OF A TIME SELLING HIS PLACE BECAUSE OF THE NEARBY "RUE" DUMP IN OUR RESIDENTAL AREA. MAYOR BOB AND THE PREVIOUS MANAGER TRIED HARD TO GET THAT PLACE CLEANED UP. UNFORTUNATELY, THE OWNERS OF "DUMP L'RUE" ARE RELATED TO THE MAYOR'S WIFE AND WERE ABLE TO GET OFF SCOT-FREE AFTER THE MANAGER WAS FIRED. BTW...THE MUNICIPAL JUDGE EMPLOYS THE MAYOR'S WIFE AS THE COURT CLERK. BEFORE THE LAST ATTORNEY WAS FIRED, HE HAD THE FORMER BOARD OF TRUSTEES FILE A COMPLAINT AGAINST THE RUE/BACA FOLKS IN DISTRICT COURT, BECAUSE THE LOCAL JUDGE WAS CORRUPT AND REFUSED TO ISSUE NEGATIVE FINDINGS AGAINST THEM. GOOD OLE BOY NETWORK MEANT NOTHING UNTIL THIS JOKER WAS ELECTED.

THANKS AGUA FRIA FOR VOTING OVERWHELMINGLY TO HELP ELECT OUR CURRENT "WINNER!" YOU ALL JUST BACKED THE WRONG HORSE. AT LEAST WHEN BOB MILLER SAID HE WOULD DO SOMETHING, WHETHER YOU AGREED WITH IT OR NOT, HE MADE SURE IT WAS DONE!

Just Deserts is soooo right. Aqua Fria residents didn't like the current administration and Armstrong promised so many things to Aqua Fria during his campaigne..........what happened to all those promises....HA ! In March 2010 two seats on the council will be open. If the citizens of Ruidoso Downs are smart they better get rid of Dean Hollman, who is just a "YES" man for Armstong and get someone in there who will work for all the citizens instead of a select few.

In ruidoso, they let you take a shit right in their majestic river, the one that runs behind the chamber of commerce. You don't need septic or sewage or toilet paper. Just spread your cheeks and watch it float downtown, passed the children on the rocks. Float, float float.

Just desserts, my wife and I agree with you. We've been to village hall to pay our water bill and noticed that nothing seems to be going on. They have a marquee sign at Village Hall but no longer put events on it. Ruidoso Downs used to send out the best newsletters with all of the porjects detailed on 'em. The last one from the former mayor is still on their site under "progress report" (until they read this probably). Check it out and see what was versus what is being done...d@mn!

Anyone out there...who would make a good councilor to replace Dean Holman? I want someone with juevos like Gary Williams. Tim Keithly, maybe? He'd kick a$$ and take names. Something needs to be done.

I'm told that the lady from Carrizozo and the new Mayor have a "thing." Must be how she keeps her job after spending hours per day at the indian casino.
