Oh boy! we have one of those liberals in Greenwood(and I know that is your right), that thinks she only votes for the candidates that make her feel good!(oooohwee goooohwee)
Our mayor pays no school or personal property taxes in greenwood. He doesn't do his part to fix our roads by buying Arkansas tags for his cars,(like the rest of us), He is a convicted felon, convicted of defrauding an insurance co out of $16K, he got caught forging clients checks to steal their money, he conned an elderly lady at the nursing home out of $10K four yrs ago (can be verified through Judge Cox and Ray Webb), gave away hundreds of thousands of gallons of Greenwoods water to a contractor/friend (you and I are paying for that through higher rates). This action is also illegal and was identified in a recent audit and will become public when the audit is finalized. Oh, let's not forget he was convicted for theft of property in 2009, while in office. An office he swore and took an oath to uphold the laws in this state for. THESE ARE FACTS. He will always be a thief and people like you who vote for him will continue to be enablers for him. Now the citizens of Greenwood find out he is Gay and also once tried to kill his cousin. If you want to vote for Ken Edwards because you feel "Sorry" for him, go right ahead, hey, while you are at it why don't you vote for the other snake, A.C. Brown, who milked the city for all kinds of free advertising during the Freedom Fest, tried to get $3000.00 from the A&P that he wasn't enttitled to, makes $14,000.00 a year as a vol. fireman,(yeah right), and is actually "THE" mini-kenny.
You should feel so good about these votes to destroy Greenwood!
Now this mayor has 3 cars with out of state tags. Yesterday Sabrina was seen driving a white Chrysler with Kanas tags. Just how arrogant is this man?

Why, there are PLENTY of reasons to vote for ol' Kenny. Just look at how he has used the city's most recent quarterly newsletter to lay out some of the reasons. In fact-I thought it was an election campaign letter it was so full of "Look at what I have dones".
He even answered some of the criticism leveled at him as to city employees using city resources for private gains. Such as the use of the city garage to work on the car or boat...didn't mention the use of city vehicles to haul the boats for fishing though.
Ol' Kenny even lightly-very lightly touched on the traffic relief plans for the city.
Yeah, I'm glad I got the quarterly preaching that ol' Kenny delivered.

"CONGRADULATIONS JACK!

YOU HAVE JUST WON THE ESTEEMED HONOR OF BEING THE AUTHOR OF REASONS #39, 40 AND 41, "WHY YOU SHOULDN'T VOTE FOR KEN EDWARDS" - TELL 'EM WHAT HE'S WON JOHNNY"!

"Jack, you lucky dog you - First you have won an all expense paid trip to the Sebastian County Court House to cast your vote to kick the sorry FUDGEPACKER out of the office of Mayor,(early voting starts on October 18, 2010). Next, you and your family can attend the swearing in ceremonies of the newly elected mayor. Then lay back and enjoy your nice quiet life in Greenwood, Arkansas once again as Common Sense and Honesty take over at City Hall and Corruption is swept away."

NEW REASONS NOT TO VOTE FOR KEN EDWARDS;

#39) LETS CITY EMPLOYEES USE CITY PROPERTY TO WORK ON THEIR PERSONAL VEHICLES AFTER HOURS, INCLUDING CHARGING OTHERS FOR USE.

#40) ALLOWS CITY EMPLOYEES TO USE CITY PROPERTY AS IF IT WAS A USED CAR LOT TO SELL THEIR OLD CARS AND MOTORCYCLES WITHOUT REIMBURSING THE TAXPAYERS FOR THE USE OF CITY PROPERTY

#41)Sent out political re-election material every quarter to the citizens of Greenwood using taxpayer monies.

This is taking a 180 degree turn from funny to serious, the state laws are really clear about using public money or property to benifit private citizens. I can't believe Edwards is so bold as he was in his latest quarterly newsletter. He wrote an out right confession that he has violated this law on several occassions. City employees that get questioned by investigators will not go to jail for edwards, they will sing like canaries.

Another Edwards Waterloo!

Cheryl you are not comfortable voting for Edwards because of his Torred past and must blame these votes on other unkown persons. You are attracted to kenny in some way,(possibly the thought of a 3-way with kenny and his house guest from Calif.) You are so easily swayed from the truth and come to kenny's defense right away and eush ti blame you actions on the sane. You immediarely assume all who dispise kenny are Gabbard suppoters, you refuse to believe the reality that there are people in this town that dispise kenny, no matter what. You have a conditioin known as Displaced Phsycosematic Parralell Phsycodic Connection with the urge to worship of the Criminal and Kinky mind. Read Sarah Palin's Book and call your Doctor right away.

The mayor now looks to have a crime spree from Greenwood to So. Carolina, to Michigan, to Fayettville and back to Greenwood.

Does that qualify him as a serial criminal?

He's got the mob behind him, but keeps that to himself and away from most in Greenwood, that is why he thinks he is invinsable
