how do you all feel now about who you have elected to make your decisions for you? Maria Alexander, who will shut down a meeting in an instant if its not going her way or you ask her a question she doesn't want to answer. She will also stomp out crying and pouting sometimes crying, sometimes cussing. Pam Fleming, who explains everything to death whether its necessary or not, Robert Patrick, who knows what is happening with him, and Trudy Dean, trying hard to keep everyone happy for voting her in office.
remember, some of this can be corrected in a year or so if residents come see for themselves how the elected 'officials' behave in council meetings. stop taking their word for what they are going to do or have done. maybe its time to start seriously thinking of recall. Bates doesn't even attend meetings if he has to vote on something that could turn controversial. how many has he missed so far? lets not forget Karen Pachuta, pretend atty. who has a legal ?? opinion of it all. lets all say it together "RECALL"

Trudy Dean is doing a great job, period. Robert Patrick and Maria Alexander were simply the lesser of the 2 evils, which is sad. I'm all for a "Total Recall" except for Trudy. I will NEVER vote for Stuart "suck up to Halpern" Anderson or Sharon Spangler, NEVER.

now you can deal with who you chose to represent you. good luck, let everyone know how that works out for you. who is Sharon Spangler sucking up to? I think I know who she is, and if its who I'm thinking, she never sucks up to anyone and will tell you real quick what she thinks.

I never she said she was sucking up to anyone, that was a Stewie reference, read the post again, duh! But now that you mention it, I believe she did take the Cushman tour 2011 and gushed about all the great things Halpern was doing for the city. Funny. And Stewie runs that successful illegal backyard business, would he even have time to represent us?

I remember hearing about her taking a tour of the Burlington store before it opened, but I don't recall anyone ever saying she was 'gushing' about it. just that it was going to be a nice store. is there something going on at that business that the residents should be made aware of? or is it just that Jimmy Cushman is the man who showed her around the store? what is wrong with that? maybe you should ask Sharon about why she looked at the store with Cushman. like I said, from what I have heard, she will tell you.

Freebie Snaggletooth probably just wanted to get some free goodies like she always does. Why pay for something when you can get it free, right? Must have learned from all those bankruptcy situations how to conn people to get what you want (from sex to handbags - its all good!). That is so flagrently white trash to lay on your back and expect it all for free.

They certainly have made it more convenient to get a quick thrill fix. Do you think these customers go to the wholesale places after they get their BJ?

Well duh! Since Cushman works for Halpern and Halpern is responsible for our disgusting "downtown" of course that has something to do with it. I mean falling for his BS even BEFORE being elected says a lot about a person. The Cushman connection has caused the fall of many people running for office and will always be a factor.

Who are you talking about? I don't expect any 'free goodies' and I have never ask anyone for anything free. Bankruptcy, never happened. Conn people to get what I want, did not happen. And 'white trash', no problem, but the 'lay on your back and expect it all for free', that is soemthing that I know nothing about and if you are talking about me, then you don't know me either. I will have a lawsuit against your ass in a minute for slander and defamation. If you don't think so, try me. I don't play games like this and I don't put up with someone who does. You better start naming names when you post something with my name also attached to it. If you weren't talking about me, you better say that too.

Mr. Cushman did show me the store before it opened. I did not fall for anybody's BS, nor did he try to impress me with any BS. He showed me the store and I told him that I thought it was going to be a very nice place to shop. Thats all. And if you think my talking to someone 'says a lot about a person' then just reading your posts says a lot about you too. It works both ways, not just your way. I don't judge people by who they talk to, I judge them by what they say. You have said a lot.

I think "Henri" was talking about somebody else. I've never heard anything like that about you. And there is no need to get personal like that anyway. Credibility flies right out the window when you start spreading gossip. I will admit, I don't agree with you much but I'm not going stoop to calling you a slut or accusing you of doing things that are obviously false. If I were you I would ignore this BS and try to realize that most folks also ignore stupid talk like this.
