I love this place!

I was born here many years ago. My family moved away when I was young, but we spent every holiday and I spent every summer with my grandparents in Weatherford. We moved back here in the seventies and stayed for twenty years until a business opportunity took us West. When people asked us where we were from we always said, "The home of Mary Martin and Larry Hagman--Weatherford."
Such history:
Oliver Loving, SWT Lanham, Bose Ikard, Doc Campbell, the list is long.
Nobody and nowhere is perfect.
But we're home now again and we couldn't be happier.
Prospero anno en felicidad.

The only ones who seem to be miserable here are the people who keep losing elections and the ones who want a government hand out. The majority works and contributes to make good changes and help quality of life

Good work Tani. "Proceeding" is what the wise men did in the Christmas song "We Three Kings".
Preceeding would be the word you were squeezing your pea-brain for.
According to your rules and bizarro-logic, your post was illegal.

You're right Moylan, I mistook your misspellings and bad grammar for your VP, Tani.
So solly.

I am the signer of the Recall petition n Jan Barton and Clem Smith.
I never rfered to them as thiefs.

A RECALL Petition does not rquire a statement of why it was put forth. But, here it is
Jan Barton was REALLED for not bing in Weatherford to take care of her responsibilities. Durning the spike in electric rates several years ago, being on the Utility Board and a City Councilperson she voted for the AEC wholesale electric contract which she admits she did not read or question. A paid consultant, attorney to both the Uitility Board and the City Council, from Austin, advised that it as very unusual but legal. Why did she not question what was unusual about it. She left for a month Greek Isles cruise. When she returned she vote to pay a $1.5 mil fine imposed by ERCOT incured at this same time. Other cities challenged it and they did not have to pay.
She was not concern about the resident/voters/taxpayers who had elected her only her pleasure.

Clem Smith was Mayor Pro Tempe' of the City Council when then Mayor Joe Tison resigned to run for the Texas House Seat Phil King held. Clem Smith state that he was elected by the people to be a City Councilperson not Mayor. Clem Smith was and had been Mayor Pro Tempe' several terms and the then enplaced city charter stated the the Mayor Pro Tempe' would assume the duties of mayor shold the elected mayor not be able to fulfill those duties. The Council answer was to appoint a non-elected individual to be Mayor even though their was not a provision in the City Charter that provided of it.
It's now a moot point.

Pro Tem, Sid.
They weren't "Pro Tempe'", I think that would translate to "in favor of Tempe, Arizona."
Or something like that.
Noone is bringing up that old history but Tani and her gang of three.
The reasons some people have been asking you guys for is the "coming recall" that has been heralded since August on this MB.
If I'm asked to sign something, I need to know why.

Is this same Sid Johnson that the Democrat wrote story about him trying to run someone off the road? Whatever finally happened with all that? Was there a trial? Why does paper only write about the start but you never hear how anything finishes? Need better balanced news reporting in Weatherford.

Good luck with that one - Democrat is a one-sided, liberal rag.
