Does McBarnes really think the citizens of this town are really that dumb. If he really wanted transparency the why is he holding the meetings at 9 AM when most people are at work? Well the reason is obvious, he wants to say he has a transparent administration just as long as nobody can attend. I don't know about the rest of you but if I told my boss I was taking a few hours off to attend a BOW meeting I'd be looking for another job. If he was really serious why not schedule the meetings in the evening like the city council does? This is typical of the dog and pony shows you will see from this 23 year old in over his head kid for the next 4 years.

This administration is really getting carried away with wasting tax payers money. First they had their so called summit which they paid chris mcbarns teacher to throw. Now they got one of tom ransoms rental signs in front of the police station. They are sure to pad their pockets.

If he really wanted to be transparent why not record the meeting and put it on the towns website?

The Frankfort High School has a class that could easily do that. But then all the comments would be known.

It's the same old song and dance.

Hey don't know if you realize they have mayors night out which was Extremely informative having it again, and all departemnt are having individual meetings as well. Great time to ask questions and get info. Why be so negitive there are opportunities to voice your opinon and make your voice heard try to think positive. Being negitive gets you no where this mayor is doing More for our town than we have ever had. But, I guess there is always a few that want to complain but really it makes you happier when you think positive and start helping in with the community to stive for it to be better. Try it you might like it!! Just saying......

Another kool-aid drinker for sure. All this guy has done is public relations. Rambo and Napa know how have been making all the decisions. Don't kid yourself, it those two calling all the shoots. Ask the fire dept head. Those two are doing what Osbon used to do single-handedly.

The city needs a true mayor. Not a public relations guy. A real mayor would be cutting the strings from those two puppet masters and stepping up.

if having meetings all the time is being a good mayor then yes he is... but ask yourself what has he actually done to improve the community??? yep i drew a blank as well. but hey if you want to ask a question go for... nothing will be done about it but yeah sure go ask. here is what boy wonder will say. "oh,(insert name) yes that is an important issue. I'm going to have to look into that and see what I can do. If you have anymore questions heres my card.(insert name) you really mean the world to me. Thank you so much for coming and voicing your concerns." now heres the kickers...

A) his business cards that he passed out alllll campaign long. well that number no longer reaches him he got a new number that he doesnt give out

B) EVERY SINGLE PERSON MEANS THE WORLD TO HIM NO MATTER WHAT!!! so you arent special just know

C) he wont look into it in fact by the end of the convo hes probably already forget what you said

D) And if you have bought into what he said and dont realize it then you too are a kool aide drinker and you deserve the let down that you are going to get

This mayor is so full of it. Like I said he stands in front of people and preeches. Just hoping people will fall for it. Then in the back ground making fun of them. This administration is the upper class that does not give rats ass about the rest of the people and other than the well off. They are out to screw over the working class.

Voice your opinion? I watched what happened in 3 BoW meetings when an agency in our town had their opportunity for that. They listened, acted all concerned, told them that they would indeed look into it. Then they met at a local eatery and trashed the person in public. The mayor says he is a kind of person that would listen, this is true. But he also stabbed the very person who spoke up in the back. And so did his little friends.

Yea, that's the transparency that we want. NOT

I just hope the people of Frankfort wise up and do something about them. But I know all of our hands are tied they are going to do what they want. Hopfully city council will stop them,we will see. Honestly I see this administration having several legal issues against them. Before to much longer.

People of frankfort I just want you to know what this administration has done again. I was informed that a alcohol board member was fired two weeks ago and his replacement is Richard Greeno. Don't sound like a big deal right well let tell you the way they did it. Mr Gary Wharry is the one that got replaced by the way. He had showed up for his board meeting and he heard rumor some one was going to get replaced a little bit later before the meeting got started Mr Greeno walked in and told him I am your replacement. No one from this administration had informed Mr Wharry that he had been terminated untill a couple hours after he was replaced. The local media was informed about this and they did nt report it. This is not the only stuff going on there is lot more. The people of Frankfort should have some one to represent us . Because all the media around here want to do is represent them because they are being paid.

This is not the first time this has happened with this administration. Mr. Scott Laird was on the Plan Commission. When he showed up for meeting, he was told he had been replaced by Shan Sheridan. To this day, Mr. Laird has never been contacted by the mayor or his office. There is more on how things have happened on other boards. If the paper would just care to dig, they would find out all the facts.

You guys or gals are right this is not the first or last of this administration pulling this crap. Look what they did to Chuck Toney look what they did to Andy Hale and also Jeff Little not to mention several others. I know for a fact these guys where not part of the good ol boys club . They were trying to make a difference but this group wants to take care of their family and buddies. Maybe someone needs to get a hold of an outside media to exploit this group to let the people know what's really going on.

Its not the mayor running this town it is Tom Ransom. The mayor is just putting on an act he has no clue of what he is doing. He just wants the publicity which he is definitly getting that.

It is very obvious that you just want to stir things up and are not an ardent lego-boy fan. I know this because his supporters don't talk like you do. We are wholesome and forthright Chrisitan citizens.

How dare you try to act like one of us! Chris is the Messiah and jesus will be BoWing down to him. Fact is, Jesus will have to get thru a jungle of supporters with Rambo drawing a bead on his every move.

I have never known a more full of yourself person as Chris McBarnes. 25 + press conferences since taking office that tells me one thing that he is so obsessed with people knowing him then doing his job and being humble about it. Isn't it the true christian way to do good deeds/charitable acts without feeling you have to blow your trumpet? Sounds like he it building his resume to be a true politician all talk and very little true action that amounts to anything other than look at me. Most of the stuff he states he accomplished in his 100 day plan amounts to a hill of beans to me. Does it increase the revenue or per capita that we need to truly better our community and grow don't think so. Again its all blahblahblah.
