"Who are you people"...I need to speak with you. Can you please email me at [email protected]? I am of the same opinion of the Lehrke's and need to swap some info.
Who are you people wrote:
If you do want to talk about someone being investigated or sued right now, look no further than Derrick Lehrke. Why don't you pull up his criminal public record, his is a fact? What about him being sued for non payment of property taxes in Newport and non payment of campaign signs out of Iowa, DUI, etc?
I think I would be more concerned about how he avoided being challenged on his own criminal record during the election. Maybe it's time.
I'm also a little confused on what "power" Derrick Lehrke or his small circle of friends have to "punish" any of the current elected officials. Derrick lied his way into a local office, he's not a Senator or anything, lol. Give me a break. This guy has NO power locally, none. He's one of 5 votes and no one likes him other than the poor souls who he convinced about our cities horrible spending (we are the 2nd most fiscally conservative city in the metro) so what is he going to pass? His wife will be voted out in 2 years, I'm pretty sure people will figure out her deal real quick.(Not the brightest bulb you know, even with her weak multiple degree's from community colleges or PC Pro or whatever) and he is going to look like crap on a bunch of false promises he made during his Senate Run.(Dang, Keep forgetting it's only City Council) He can't stop anything, period. It's so annoying even listening to the guy in person.
Maybe Derrick should have paid more attention to his personal finances and keeping his rental property up to code instead of running for a $300 a month office. At least for the first time in a long while he has a job, right?
Derrick Lehrke and his friends are like the Cottage Grove version of Deliverance, seriously. A bunch of dirty dudes that drink beer and do circle's with their cars in the middle of the road. Keep on drinking Lehrke, maybe you can get your second DUI before the end of the year. I really like his one buddy that always posted and that claimed to be a "copper" himself. I didn't know 15 weeks and a 95B MOS really put you in that category as a career law guy.
Shockingly enough, I am also not employed by the city or state, gov, etc like you guys think everybody on here is and am completely fed up with this crap too. I've watched you Lehrke little yahoo's attack anybody on her who doesn't agree with you. Your cowards, plain and simple. Tough on Computer, right? Grow a set and try and shut up, your annoying. Find something more entertaining to do like Dungeons and Dragons or whatever real popular fellas like yourselves do on a Saturday night. Get out a little more and quit hijacking every site out there.
Merry Christmas!
