So an individual who has run for and won an election ONCE, and is not even halfway through his current term of office, is now labeled a 'career politician'.
Using your definition former Mayor Pippenger is more of a career politician than Mayor MacBarnes is.
I don't think so. That's your definition. Oh, you left out a comma.

Is that why Mr. Stock is now able to remodel/renovate his laundromat on Kyger street? Or did he sell that building to somebody else and they are renovating it?

The DEGREE thing is called "a joke" "a sidebar statement" cause Obviously that kid did NOT get any degree in Management. This ol guy has "Managed" my Home, my taxes, my Real estate taxes and my Family since YOU AND that Mayor were in Dittees and am STILL payin through the nose through WHEEL tax and Real Estate tax. Sooooo if ya wanna consider THAT background in Business MAnagement then there's a whole heck of a lot of us in Clinton County and Your fine City that are doin THAT while the Councils, Mayor, BOW, and Utility Services are Sellin US down the DRAIN!
Are you the mayor of Rossville?

Boy....... No one READS anymore do they? The PROPERTY is the OLD KYGER SCHOOL. On THIRD STREET.
"Punjabby" YOU ottaw KNOW that YOUR Council SOLD it to that WESLYAN Church! ANOTHER little piece of INFO: Anyone see on facebook where your MAYOR told all his CONSTITUENTS to STOP messaging him in FACEBOOK as he had NO TIME to answer them. They NOW have to go to the OFFICE and fill out a SLIP of their Disagreements or Tell Miss TINA. THEN This Sunday He's a Standin there with the Big shots of his Church where they gave him some Honerary TITLE cause he gave up his job. He's a askin ALL CHURCHES to Message his INBOX in FACEBOOK to let him come to THEIR Church and SING and Preach. Wonder what his Constituent think about that? If it Means MONEY MESSAGE ME! lol

Wow nu-viewy, you truly are a moron. You also score a zero when it comes to reading comprehension.

A previous post mentioned former Mayor Don Stock and his current employment status. I simply asked a question about the coin laundromat Mr. Stock still owns or used to own on Kyger STREET. It had nothing to do with the location of the former Kyger school on S. Third street. Of course this didn't stop you from spouting another near incoherent rant.

Egg on your face again nu-viewy. Better go back to the chicken coop.

Nope cause MOST of what you have to say is Wishy Washy. You go which ever the political wind is a blowin fer the day. I admit that post was off but with you noone can tell. It took you three posts ta GET where Kyger School WAS. Oh, and BTW, you Never answered the post over there on the other forum. Are you STILL tapeing every conversation you have with polititions and the Higherarchy of The City and County?

Thank you "old man". I've noticed AAA plumbing doing a lot of work at that location over the last several weeks. Was wondering if it was going to reopen as a laundromat or another business.

Wishy Washy? Hardly. It is your inability to read and clearly comprehend the written language that is the problem.

As for taping conversations I have no idea what you are talking about. Are you still claiming that myself and Mr. Gunyon are the same person?
