Change

Newport, VA

I was talking to some friends yesterday and the Chiefs name came up again,[imagine that].. The subject turned to his tenure as Chief when a new mayor takes office. Everyone agreed that he could have been terminated long ago and for some reason this current staff wouldn't do anything but take some control over him. They took everyones vehicle except his and he was the one causing the problems, several complaints of him speeding and driving reckless and to be seen on occasion parked where he shouldn't have been. Maybe the current staff had a valid reason for their actions not to do anything. Now the question is will the new mayor reappoint this chief and continue with the same issues that has caused so much turmoil in this little town. This town needs a change bad and especially in the police dept. The citizens deserve better and you must get out and support the candidate that will evaluate and make the proper changes. There are lot's of qualified people out there that can relace this staff. Get out and vote and express your displeasure and submitt your concerns with the new mayor. We have to move forward and the time is now to do it.

take the steps required to save the town, bring back the tourist,and make Gauley Bridge a respected part of the State again, instead of the joke of the state. there is people that will work hard to get the word out about the change if the towns people will step up and do it. see you at the polls

I lived in Gauley Bridge when it was incorporated and fought the incorporation. What is happening is exactly what I tried to tell everyone at the time.
The incorporaters said my home insurance would come down, it didn't. They said all the schools would remain open, they didn't-only the K-4. They said my property taxes wouldn't increase, they did.
They said we would get good police protection. If this is good, I would hate to see the bad. By the way, we didn't need additional police protection since the State Police had a detachment in GB and we didn't have a drug problem then.
The "BOYS" in fire dept all threatened to quit if the incorporation failed, scaring the voters to vote "FOR" incorporation.
Charlie Keenan, retired GHBS coach and principal, was a big supporter of incorporation. He was elected the first mayor, set himself up a fat salary and a free town vehicle and was the only person in town allowed to drive drunk.
I could go on for pages but WHY.

New Mayor and new council will take office soon. The Town will get better if they make the needed changes or if they don't make the changes at the police dept. well, you will know Rampage did arrive and you didn't know it. It will be the end of Gauley Bridge, so when you vote, you better know that the candidate you are voting for is willing to make the change. If you fail to vote or voice your concerns to the candiates, you can sink with the Town.
just my 2 cents
