I have been in several meetings when she told the aldermen it was up to them as aldermen to get the financial statement done. They don't seem to know how to go about doing that but ALL those bank statements and finances would be included when they ever get around to doing this. One is so far behind in being done and as a city they aren't legally supposed to be writing a single check until one is done and put in the newspaper. Everyone needs to just stop pointing fingers and get it done. It is stated that its the aldermens duty to do this.

Go to a meeting and you would know that finances are done and ready to go into the paper.

So Jim Campbell resigned his Alderman position sighting "medical reasons" and yet he is running for Mayor, a much more taxing position? Interesting... Christians don't lie , right?
We are SOL Sparta.

Start a new thread on this, it needs attention. You shouldn't tack it on to the tail end of a 2 yr old thread. The people need to hear about this!

I agree this is an important topic but it has been used recently and will come up on top no matter how old it is. It is on topic with this thread. I think it's fine to continue.

What about the Snider lady that's on the ballot? Didn't she resign as Clerk, when she gave the city council an ultimatum, do it or else, and they didn't do it? Why is she back in there?

My understanding is she didnt ask the people to vote for her as one of our elected officials and commit to a two year term just to quit.

What are you talking about? You don't become an elected official unless you're on the ballot.

They are referring to Debbie Snider. She was not an elected official. City Clerks are appointed and hired by the Council. She is now running unopposed for Council. Get em Deb!

You dont get on the ballot unless you make a choice to run for public office. Nobody twisted Mr. Campbells arm or put a gun to his head. You then are making a commitment to the people of Sparta to a two year term. You are asking the voting citizens and fellow neighbors to trust and believe in you.
Surely you can see a difference in resigning from a job (which most of us have done in our lives) vs. quitting a position you ran for public office for, and were elected by the people who trusted you for. AND THEN quit citing medical reasons just to run again during the very next election claiming miracles have happened and we are all better now.
Personally, I wish Snider the best and believe with all my heart she will be much much better than what we got.

That's funny considering Otten is the only one on the council who probaby puts in 40 hours a week. Adam and Virginia don't have jobs that they work even dodhalf of that. Gary and Joya don't work at all. Campbell didn't work full time either.

Actually Adam is self employed and works Tues. thru Sat. He makes a very decent living and supports his family well.

As bad as I hate Virginia, she spends more hours at her office than anyone. Now I cant confirm that she is working, but she is at her place of employment.(Maybe she is watching Johnny Cash youtube videos or practicing her witchcraft.

Gary never even signed up in the first place. He was appointed.

And our beloved mayor........ She cant work, she is crazy. Im betting she is on disability/ foodstamps and welfare. Nobody would hire her anyway. She is too busy feeding the stray city cats.

I apologize for not being more specific. Gary was appointed to the position after Jim Campbell quit.

Dear actually,

Sam stated 'full time'- and Adam does not work 8 hours a day and neigther does Virginia. Thats pretty funny though. I don't guess it was stated what position being signed up for so I assumed that could include mayor - which Gary is running for which is why I said that.

Dear dear sam,

If you look at your post #79, you state Adam and Virginia dont work even half of the 40 hours that you claim Steve Otten does. Now I cannot account for the exact number of hours Adam or Virginia put in each week, and frankly I dont care, but I would be willing to bet at least Adam puts in 20 hours or more. At least his "Open Hours" on the door of his place of employment reflect that. Maybe Ive misread or misunderstood what was said about Gary and whatever he is running for. We are on the exact same page when it comes to Gary/ Joya, and I cant stand Virginia. She hasnt done anything since she has been in office that has moved this city forward or even in the right direction, and she NEVER had the best interest of our city at heart. I do look forward to having a new council and a different mayor.
