The big buzz in the city the last week, the Art Mural that was voted down by 4 council members. Ok, we get a lot of time was put into it, it would have looked nice in the area that was picked out, they loss around $2,800.00 dollars. Do you think this is the only money that this crooked Mayor has ever wasted? Think not! This joke is a blow hard jumping on a band wagon to make him self look good, and he loves turmoil! His two puppets on a short string that moves their mouths, but all we hear is the mayors mouth! Then you have the x- council member on the civic board chiming in like he really gives a $/$). Another fake a$$, phony to the mayor...we all are figuring it out and fed up mayor. Time to go bye, bye! Get a life and start thing about bettering the city and quit causing turmoil !!!!!

If you could please detail your contributions for the City of Dayton, I would love to hear.
Tearing others down is not a healthy or constructive action.
The Mayor did not waste this money. City Council approved the budget for the Mural, by a majority vote. 5 for, 1 against.
Later 3 of members who had previously voted yes, voted no, for a 4 to 2 vote against the Mural.
The Mayor voiced that he thought that it would be a great opportunity for Dayton.

The 5-2 council voted to waste the $2800, not the mayor.
The council voted to waste the volunteers hours who spent many hours working hard to make something Dayton could be proud of. Not the mayor.
The residents in attendance 100% voiced their opinion in favor of the mural, of not wasting $, of giving the city something to be proud of. The 2 council members who voted in favor were voicing the opinions of the tax payers they represent.
In this video you can see the public's approval of the project at 9:40: http://www.youtube.com/watch...
You can also see how the council was clearly advised that the money would be wasted if approved, and then the immediate vote afterwards: http://www.youtube.com/watch...
To me it appears that the council members who voted in favor of the mural did so with the voters in mind, and those that did not did so on their own accord and against the wishes of the tax payers.

They voted down the murals the first time and someone signed the contract thinking they would vote for it the second time. It didn't happen. So someone needs to be fired!!
#6 Jul 1, 2013
It was approved the first time, 5/1 council vote.

So the project appears to be dead but for those who were in attendance I applaud you for voicing your concerns. This (Democracy)is why this is the greatest country in the world. Couple comments -- strong words by a particular citizen who sits on the Dayton School Board. I truly hope you look yourself in the mirror. The injustice that has taken place within our schools with the past superintendent far exceeds what you may feel is an injustice with this mural project. I only hope those who were in attendance remember this as well when it is time to vote.Now to the one who was so close to getting on council. You know I want to like you then you start talking. I truly think your a good person but sometimes you try way to hard. It always becomes me, me, me and what I do. People actually notice, you don't have to constantly remind us. Be yourself and not always be politicking and you might earn your spot. So in closing I'm sure there are bigger problems this council is facing now and in the future please do your best to work together to make Dayton a place I will always enjoy calling home.

Nice job council. Not doing these projects saves the city money. I mean look at Bellevue. They've been wasting their money on small projects to beautify their neighborhood for years. What were they thinking?
-If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.

-If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.
Now that is a great saying. Why don't you take that to the Mayor and City Adm so they know that what they've done for this city the past 10 years is apparent in Dayton's "thriving" businesses on the avenue. Bellevue got half there city full of businesses up and running -- then thought about a mural. Why? Because those smart people knew a mural don't bring income or people in to a city. A mural is NOT GOING TO MAKE Dayton's BUSINESS DISTRICT THRIVE. A new Mayor, City Administrator and Main Street guy who gives a shit about the city and it'\s people will make it thrive.
Perfect example of how the City Adm and Mayor bully the existing business owners. Ask Archie at the car shop or that new business ownerho bought the old Leger's carryout. They can tell you how much the Mayor and Adm like businesses in the city.

WHAT ABOUT COUNCIL? They are to blame too.
#11 Jul 8, 2013
Agreed, Joanne. I say the Mayor and City Adm because they are the two who continue to keep new business people away. The CA threatened shutting down the 2 businesses I mentioned above. They're good business owners and don't deserve that kind of treatment. People who come here to start a business decide not to start here because the M and CA hound them and not for good reasons. The MSt mgr just can't do the job to bring business into Dayton. He can form committees that don't change anything. He might be a good guy but he lacks what it takes to get a job like that done. City Council people are so divided that they can't get any job donen just because one side don't want the other side to win. That's why people in Dayton see nothing happening that matters to improve the city. People are talking, talking and talking all these years but most of the avenue still looks like a dirty, forgotten place.

I feel the problem is small minded people. Small minds talk about people. Great minds talk about ideas.
Dean and Brenda, let's hear your great ideas or contributions to the City.
#13 Jul 12, 2013
My contributions, little missy, is that I've lived in this city all my life and I have a vested interest in my property, my children's livelihoods (meaning their education), and the feeling of pride of living in this once-beautiful city. I maintain my property and the alley behind my house, have been involved in cleanups and do whatever I can for my neighborhood. No one can have pride in theirt city if it looks like shit, and that's exactly what this town looks like to someone driving through. We can't even enjoy the dessimated river bank because of some assinine ideal that the mayor and his sidekick thought up in the back corner of his favorite pizzeria. By the time that project is one-fourth done no one will want to buy a million dollar condo here. The city is a slum land compared to the once thriving main street. The river bank is an eyesore here and across the river compared to what most Daytonians used to enjoy year after year. There really isn't even a decent block around the inset of Dayton that one can say makes a beautiful neighborhood. There are so many rentals in the city that a true homeowner don't have time to know their neighbors because they come and go. And most of the time they're not good neighbors. I could go on and on but to tell you the truth, you sound like you like to live with the ugliness of the city. Well, until we get a new Mayor and City Administrator who really want to work and not waste time here waiting for retirement, then, welcome home to you. You don't have to worry about wiping your feet as you go in the door, because people aren't looking inside.

Also, small minds didn't create this mess in Dayton. Very bad, greedy and power-hungry leadership did. Leadership that continued on because the people let it.
Small minds like the ideas of their friends because they can't think for themselves or are afraid of offending them because "they wont like you" if you do. Strong minds see the problems and want to fix them by getting rid of the problems. Considering I am trying to get rid of the problems and you're not, then I'd say you are the weak minded one. In my opinion, of course.
#15 Jul 12, 2013
just watched the council meeting on tv. wasn't that one guy who spoke at the poodium on the school board when all that money was stolen by the super. Funny. Like pot calling the kettle black.
#16 Jul 26, 2013
LOL @ DAYTON
#17 Jul 28, 2013
Where are you now?
You are quite humorous, and we all love the 'stache.
#18 Aug 13, 2013
So glad you "maintain your property"
You are supposed to.
Clean up the alley behind your home?
Wouldn't you want to?
Keep the rats, roaches, raccoons, and opossums out of your living space.
See you are proud that you are to be able to procreate, your children are able to procreate. I get to pay taxes for Dayton Independent Schools to be 100% FREE LUNCH. Thanks, I have never put children through this wonky a>>ss school district. Nor will I. But I need to pay the highest property taxes in the Commonwealth because you feel the need to pass your genes on.
Heaven knows where we would be without those genes.
Keep attacking concerned citizens to deflect attention from yourself
"You have lived here all your life"
Thanks so much for letting things fall apart under your watch.
Thank You Very Much JG,
#19 Aug 16, 2013
You're welcome very much, Elvis.
You're as cute as a dingleberry to think that all kids in Dayton's public schools get a free lunch. You're also to be admired that you passed your genes on and made a higher level of kid than the rest of us. Damn,man, I think you're great. It's hard to believe someone so esteemed like yourself lives in a town like Dayton. But I see you like living in Dayton or you would've left because of those high school taxes. Thanks for staying and paying. It means a lot to me and my procreations. Especially coming from you.
Hey Elvis - I do want to let you know that I'm not the Mayor or Board Member. I don't keep watch over the city nor did I ever have any authority to do so. Thanks for thinking I could possibly have such authority to bring Dayton down to where it is. It means a lot to me.

Where do you see any mention of me having ANY children? You do not know my circumstances, yet you are very willing to judge myself and others.
Please investigate "Free Lunch" in Dayton's Independent School District. You may find it has been changed from 90% Free Lunch to 100%.
Meaning the responsible parents that do provide food for their children no longer have to. Regardless of income.
I am not here because "I like it." Nothing would please me more than to leave this area. Who can sell their home in "Appalachia West Central?' Whether it be a condo up on the hill, or a single family along the Avenue. The druggies and the hillbillies parading along 6th Ave. with no shirts, saggy pants, and their incessant expectorating will prevail with their Government Rent Vouchers and SNAP cards.
Dean, we are not truly on separate sides of the issue,
Mayor needs to go and take that POS City Administrator with him. Along with the do-nothing Main Street Manager, and mentally challenged Code Enforcement Director.
You say that you are not in position of influence, but what would it take to motivate you to well-meaning people to run for offices in upcoming election?
