Mayor Lyons, your Guest columnist article, "How Dowagiac continues to build for the future", is outstanding! Thank you. Bonnie Barkell

Don Lyons saying he is proud to have a surplus of money because he fired so many city employees is unexcuseable.
Dowagiac will never be a better place until he is out of office.
People need to understand that Mr. Lyons is a figurehead mayor. He is not suppose to have any more power that your mailman when it comes to the city.

I 2nd, The motion that Former Resident puts forth. Cut your losses and leave while you can! City will eventually own this town for pennies on the dollar!

Builds For What the elite because they sure don't care about anyone but themselves.
The entire city could fold and they would still think it is ok as long as their friends are ok.
Move to another town we are.

This is addressed to all the complainers in this forum and around town:
You lose ALL credibility when you make negative comments about any situation and do not offer any sort of suggestion as to how to improve the situation.
Whereas I, myself, am not necessarily content with the current financial situation here in Dowagiac, you will NOT find me degrading others or making uneducated comments about the situations here. That's the kind of closed-minded talk you hear on popular conservative radio talk-shows. Leave THAT type of hype OUT of this discussion.
If you're going to complain in this forum or any other then I suggest you have at least three alternate ideas that you are willing to help put forth before you start throwing stones at the mayor or the town.
Otherwise you give the readers NO alternative than to pass you off as little more than a "complainer".
And stop hiding behind fake Anonymous login names.

Building for the Future? Are you kidding me?
I don't see any "good" that Mayor Lions has brought to our community. Ask yourself a simple question, why would any family want to move here? What do we have to offer? Exactually! The list of the negatives in this town are to extensive to list. Can someone share with me the Positives?
I'm looking foward to the "Future" Mayor Lyons!

Dear Chris, Do you attend any meetings in Dowagiac?
Do you agree with a $500.00 deposit for electric?
Do you agree with an increase in your water bill?
Residents give suggestions to the council all the time they just ignore them.
Dowagiac is going down the drain faster than people can move out and it will stay that way until Mr. Lyons and council are all gone.
You have no right to say something about people complaining when you don;t attend meetings.
What are your suggestions if we do give council suggestions and they refuse to listen because they are better than the rest of us?
That leaves us nothing to do but complain.
