Awesome idea CC....can we get that into a meeting and see what they think about that..? I know they read these posts and sit around and laugh all the way to the bank with their salaries and pensions... getting richer and fatter off the backs of the tax paying citizens of cramerton.. i think they could all go now really .. not too sure we need a Town of Cramerton..
It's the leadership that needs to change. It would be interesting to see the response of the council if presented with this during a meeting. Of course, Peoples or Brown or Worley would probably start flailing thier arms about cutting the speaker off. They won't listen to anything in conflict with whatever their "model of the moment" happens to be. I'd go to more meetings but the men tend to turn down the thermostat to freeze out the women or the unwanted citizens or whomever...they are so shallow yet so full of themselves!

ONE why do people on here not get off their butts and run for office or show up for meetings, myself included, we can't blame Ronnie for the problems, the mayor has little say unless it is a tie, so why dont you guys get off his sack. Also why does everyone like to cause problems on someone day job, real job just becaz of political things going on in the town. I am biased here becaz I know Ronnie does not like conflict and really is too good of a person to even be a mayor. It takes alot of side taking and conflict and he is not the back-stabbing type! He has been put in a hard position, he LOVES this town and it is becaz of family roots here and his whole family from here. He would not do anything intentionally to hurt Cramerton, now the council is a different story. So before you all throw him under the bus. Word is that if we would change council members then maybe Ronnie could do more and please more of the town people. Mayors' have little to do with votes on things unless problems or ties, so vote your council out but do not blame council problems all on mayor, and mind your own business when it comes to people and their real jobs that feed and provide for their families, you do not mess with that just becaz things in a town council and fire department are not going your way. If half of you had the heart for this town that he does we would all be better off here.

The mayor may 'love' Cramerton but he has little 'love' for the firefighters. He is the one who told the CVFD "We don't need you"...he was present at the meetings with the state fire marshall who recommended the town not go forward with taking over the fire department. He has stood by Peoples and Brown and the council in this entire process and they all have alienated the firefighters and their families...and many others as well. Worley has made no effort whatsoever to communicate anything other than his wholehearted support of City Hall.

I suppose we will have to agree to disagree. If Worley had the committment you seem to believe he has, he'd have the gonads to stand up for the FD and work for a better process.

It is amazing to me just how totally ignorant some of you people posting on here are. You seem to know alot about how the town operates yet none of you ever come to council meeting. The now defunct VFD has pissed away alot of money on crap that is not needed. Fire Boat, give me a damn break, we need a fire boat like a fireman would need gasoline drawers going into a fire and to show just how ignorant you really are, instead of keeping negoations open with the town thru the end of the year you would not deal with them anymore and now all the firemen will not get the money at the Christmas Party for all the calls they anwered this past year and oh yea there will not be a Christmas party for the VFD this year. Nice going idiots.

You maybe right about that... does highway patrol exceed the speed limit, roll past stop signs, talk & text while driving and oh cause the only time i EVER see them is when they are breaking the law... cause if that mirrors the highway patrol then yes; when they get into their new headquarters that the taxpayers will be paying over $4 million dollars over the next 40 years for .. then we will NEVER see them.. surely they won't come out of there.
It is very obvious you have no idea what you are talking about. the stimulas money from the government at a low interest rate is no where close to 4 million dollars, actually not even close to $2 million. If you would get involved and go to council meeting you would know this.

The way things are now, I'd vote for drawing a name out of a hat to choose who runs the town. We could have a celebration. And the first invitations would be to 'invite' Peoples and his entourage to LEAVE. Give the regular person a chance to have his voice heard! Let's get away from the election being a popularity contest of those behind those mountain gates!
You have made a great statement "Giver the regular peron a chance to have his voice heard." Twice a month you have that opportunity it is called town council meeting. At the beginning of each meeting the have a forum for anyone who wants to address the council about anything on their mind. Nobody ever shows up, how do I know this? I DO show up and many many times I have addressed the council with my displeasures, complaints, or questions and I have had success each and every time getting answers. Try it some time you may be surprised.

Word on the street is Mr Worley is spending too much time around town in his patrol car when he is at work especially at town hall at night. Apparently he parks it behind the building so no one will see him. Word is that his boss is getting a lot of complaints and Mr Worley wants to be transferred to another county.
And word on the street is that they frfoze transfers and that he is skating on thin ice with his boss. Hope gets a taste of his on medicine

Since "cramertonresident" knows so much about the town tell us about the 6 foot marijuana plants found at the waste water treatment plant that the town employees were growing or maybe you can tell us about the golf clubs and other items that the town manager took when the police dept moved from north main st to julia ave .

I assume you got both of these reports from the police dept, oh you didn't? you heard it from your cousins aunt twice removed when she was passing through gaston county on their way to Florida, wow that sound like it comes from reliable sources, and I am sure you know but maybe forgot the waste water plant belongs to the City of Gastonia and staffed by employees of Two Rivers Inc. God help us with you people just trying to stir up crap. Please tell me you don't live in Cramerton.

Oh, Resident, this town is filled with know-it-alls who can't be bothered to come to a meeting and actually get the facts for themselves. Gossip spreads like wildfire thru Goober, Gomer, and the busy-body network.....what is wrong with you people? Ronnie Murphy? Seriously? This is progress? No wonder people around the state make fun of Gaston County. Get with the program, Cramertonians. There's not a thing wrong with wanting to live in a quaint small town, but small town minds won't help anyone wanting progress for us all.

Is no one the least bit concerned that a school teacher gets on FaceBook and curses the Mayor of Cramerton? This is someone that guides children, for God's sake!? This guy doesn't show up at council meetings, yet has veiled threats towards the Mayor and Council people, ranting about things he knows little about. I am so thankful my kid didn't have this nut job as one of his teachers @Highland. He obviously doesn't follow any code of business conduct.....my company has "guidelines" (common sense actually) about posting crap that will shine a negative light on the company. This nut doesn't seem to know, or care, how that reflects on the school system. And folks think he is brave about speaking like this. People can have a civil discourse without relying on cursing, slander, and innuendo. God help the children.
