I am getting sick and tired of the awful job the current Town Manager is doing. She has now removed a thread about herself on here. She cannot handle the heat of the position and therefore should step aside. Someone who is in charge of preparing a proposal for a budget should be held accountable for the current budget situation. She should be fired for her insubordination to the current council and for over stepping her power as a non elected official.

<quoted text>The council is a damn joke. The current town manager is nothing the less a scapegoat for the restarted decisions that the council has made. Don't believe me?? Go to the meeting next week and ask Jess and Charles aka batman and robin the same questions you bitch about in here
So what you are saying is that this current council was the one that voted last year and the last 4 years on the failed budgets that the Town Manager proposed? The current council is the same council that supported the corrupt police chief? The current council is at fault for turning over the track and field? The current council is responsible for 10 minute meetings and illegal votes? 4 months on the job and they have already cleaned up the corrupt PD, got rid of the drug shop, which the Town Manager approved their business plan and allowed them to set up shop, and has helped our local businesses. Yeah you are right, we should have just let corruption continue and let the stagnation continue.

I agree with educated voter this council has done more in 4 months that the old council did in years.Ths old council broke Coeburn, let the police dept carry on the way they did. If anything this coouncil is being used as a scapegoat for Loretta and the old councils mistakes. This BUDGET and MONEY problems we are having now are from the OLD COUNCIL. People are not stupid and are not falling for your idea to blame this council. I have been to meetings it's very clear this council has support. I have only heard two people get up and speak against them. That is Alen and Travis, everybody else is giving them good comments. Don't be stupid this council has really worked hard. They have cleaned up the police dept, voted an ordiance to close the druig store, just to name a few things. Thanks council and thanks Scott Brooks for all you do!!

How classic you take your screen name from your nemesis because you can't be original lol. And you have that backwards Jeff is the only intelligent one on the council. He is the only one that knows what the council can and can't do, and how things are supposed to work. The rest of them are just sad, pathetic, worthless excuses for councilmen. One is power hungry and of course he has his lapdog behind him running around being a yes man. One is disgruntled and wants revenge. One idiot sits back and wants to secretly control the show but not take any of the blame if something goes wrong. And finally u have one that wants to do things right but can't because of the head clown and his cronies. Loretta does her job and tries to appease the council that's n office but is in a lose lose situation. But all in all it will be ok. They won't last long ;) more and more people are talking about their stupidity. Lol
Well your little spin is funny! People are starting to see Jeff Kiser for what he is which is a liar. I voted for Jeff but he lied to me during the campaign. I wont make that mistake again. The only thing i hear around town is what a clown Jeff is. I go to the store i hear it, i heard it at the barber shop yesterday, i hear it at the post office. Plus if Jeff cared for Coeburn why is he suing the town for over $100,000 i heard, should be public record. I am going to check . Wow real hero. Sue the town where you sit as a council to protect it.

Well as usual you have that wrong. You are spreading LIES. Read the Coalfield. It was JEFF KISER who suggested cutting the Christmas bonus out for the employees. However the VICE MAYOR took a stand and fought for them KEEPING THE BONUS saying it was to close to cut them, plus i was at the meeting and heard him. He said you don't cut peoples bonus a week before it is due. So stop spreading lies. If you had been at the meeting or read the paper you would know that. JEFF KISER suggested taking the bonus away or cutting it and VICE MAYOR said NO. The employees got them.
And the vice mayor said NO I will not take a pay cut! And No, Jeff did NOT ask the the Christmas bonus be eliminated! BTY, Veronica is the one that did a motion to cut the bonus in half.

Funny thing that Jeff was listed as saying to CUT or TAKE away the bonus. Read the minutes. I was at the meeting! The Vice Mayor did not say that he woudl not take a pay cut. Why not stop lying and get the minutes to the meeting.

I don't think council should take a pay cut, hell they have to put up with alot for $25 a month get real people don't be stupid, cutting their pay isn't going to do shit. They need to cut Lorettas pay now that will save some money. She is making $64,000 a year plus all the perks. Stop being stupid people! Btw if Jeff is going to sue this town he NEEDS TO RESIGN THE COUNCIL. Of course Jeff can give up $25 a month, since his wife is the bread winner for the house hahahahah what a joke!

and the mayor said, table this until the next meeting. Guess he ALSO didn't want to take a cut in pay for the Christmas bonus! BTW, the vice major did NOT say that he was willing to take a cut in pay!

Get a life people if you are jealous of a councilman making a few doallrs a month you are sad! Stop being so damn petty. Look at a town manager making $64,0000 + a year, a councilman suing a town he is suppose to be representing. Focus on some REAL issues not a damn councilman making $25 freaking dollars a month. Larry Salyer and that old council put this town in the mess that it is in now that is why we are having money problems NOW. I have been to meetings and even talked to Larry when he was in office over the years, he just had that stupid grin on his face. This council has only been in office 4 months and the budget problems started with the old council. This council just inherited a mess. So they deserve a few dollars a month in my book. Focus on teh REAL problems over paying a town manager and coming up with thousands. and thousands of dollars to pay off Jeff for his lawsuit.
