CITIZEN VOICE
"operating from the concent of the governed

Voices of the governed should and need to be heard. Those voices often are represented in the form of event volunteers, advisory board and committee members and citizen leaders. Opportunities including Mayor’s Night Out events, various roundtables and youth leadership initiatives are included in this cornerstone that puts citizens and their input and involvement at the forefront of the action." OFten represented in form of EVENT Volunteers, advisory board and committee members??? So in OTHER words unless ya WORK yer Butt off fer the CITY fer FREE ya AIN't bein Heard.

WEll Thank ya there "wait" This ol Guy Tries ta treat "jabby" like a SCAB leave it alone and it'll finally go away. Hovever thier posts are SO untrue. All the Facts that this ol guy has took his time ta look UP fer the City and County I want the TRUTH ta be told! I don't Say I am ANYBODY! But I AM SOMEBODY that takes MY time to make sure I Know the TRUTH before I spew it out on this Forum! Yer RIGHT about the kool-aid. I'm afraid even the lovers of the McCheese are even uninformed?
They come in here and spew all that he has DONE,and yet have NO CLUE OR DENY the MESS of what is goin on in the Background? Some people tell This ol guy ta stay OUT cause I don't live in yer Fair City. Problem IS I have ta DRIVE on yer TORN up streets that yer Mayor promised ta fix. I have ta buy my GAS at the most EXPENSIVE gas stations in the Area? I have ta go to Wal-Mart cause yer City fought and fought ta let any other Grocery Store come in (until they finally caved ta the COUNCILS demands) and are a commin anyway. I have ta Pay My WHEEL TAX which goes ta the State and THEN finally trickles down ta yer city. MY County Buddied up with YER city and spent 4.4 Million dollars on the NIDEC Building (OLd Mallory Bld) Promision EVERYONE they had a Federal Grant of 80% THEY LOST! NOW they can't get ANYONE ta lease the Building? So ASk THIS ol guy why HE want ta know what is goin on in FRANKFORT , IN? Yes, "wait" "jabby" is a Know it ALL Know NUTHIN and the BEST thing ta DO is Leave them alone and The'll go HOME a Waggin their TAILS behind them! But, it Still get's this ol Guy's Dander when he Spews such Venom at the posters and has NUTHIN Truthful ta say!

You are full of shit old man, and your increasingly unintelligible rants prove it. That's not at all what the website says, just how your twisted mind interprets it.

Sorry that you want everything for free.

Have you not had enough?

Are you not sick of business as usual?

Is the status quo working out for you?

Are you not disappointed with the current crop of opportunists?

The good people of Frankfort deserve better leadership.

You deserve leaders that bring dignity and progress to your town,not ridicule.

At the next opportunity,vote them out.
