Who is this Mike Evans running for St...

He has a pretty impressive resume. What did he do to turn Doris against him after she supported him in his campaign?

And the blog post is impressive. I like that he is against bullying in the military. He's probably taking those same principles into the Bridges program.

Seems like Doris and her supporters are against anything the city does at this point. How unproductive and what a waste of our tax money.

Have you ever heard of stolen valor? That is what Mr. Evans is guilty of. Is his disability due to his service or does he just conveniently forget to tell people it is not? Did he ever serve in combat? Did he ever leave the states? He just fails to tell the whole story. Sounds like he is just tooting his own horn, but that is the Amato way.
Somehow he forgot to mention that he hasn't attended an aging and disabilities meeting in eight months and he will most likely be removed from that organization also.
Mr. Evans is a sad case.

He was the Obama Missouri Soldier something for two years. That doesn't sound like stolen valor to me.

Mike is very good to the mentally and physically disabled students in the district. He makes them feel important; raises their self-esteem and leads activities they can be a part of. Nice person all around.

To me it just sounds like someone with a vendetta trying to ruin his reputation, just like what was done to Moss.

He is living a lie, he is not a disabled veteran. He is a veteran. He is not a member of the VFW. He is a member of the auxiliary. He harasses the elderly.

Have you ever heard of hidden disabilities? Those are ones you cannot see. It is a very real issue in today's society.

The auxiliary is for veterans.

Post what he did to harass the elderly. Post proof of your accusation.

The VFW auxiliary is for family of veterans and those who did NOT serve in foreign wars. There is a distinct difference between being a VFW Member and being a member of the auxiliary.
A disability may be hidden, but if if was not a direct result of combat, it is lying to portray yourself as a disabled veteran. It is lying by omission. It is exploitation at it's lowest form.
Read the Patch, he was harassing members of the Historical Society. What a creep.

Only partially true - the auxiliary is also for noncombat veterans like me who WISH to also participate. There is no deception. I put in my military service during relative peacetime in the world near the end of the cold war. Does that mean I would not have gone if called upon? Of course not. It is nothing to hold against another who did serve in the theatre of combat. My loss but that is the rule.

Bernie Wilde is the issue at the historical society. It is not harrassment to ask for the records she secrets away from scrutiny to see how the organization is funded and what the financial status is.

So let me get this straight....

Doris harasses people to get information from city hall costing the taxpayers money in legal fees and that is okay.

Mike Evans asks Bernie for the financials for the historical society of which he was the president and that is harassment.

Seems like a double standard to me.

And by the way, there are people that never serve a day in a foreign war but participate just the same and without them we wouldn't have success in our wars as they are a vital part of the missions even though they are miles away. Some personnel at Scott Air Force Base are a prime example of that.

Let me help you get it straight. Doris is not only a citizen of Arnold, but a publicly elected official. Government works for the citizens, not the other way around. Records are public documents, that by law, are to be accessible to the public. And especially our elected representatives! Why should there be any legal fees associated with asking to see those documents??? Unless of course, they are hiding something. That seems the most likely scenario.

On the other hand, the historical society is a private enterprise. And no one, not you, me, or even Mike Evans has a right to see their records. Even if you take the cops with you. Which by the way, is harassment.
Sounds like politics

The president of an organization asking for financial records of that same organization is harrassment? i think not. That's transparency.

Exactly. He is the president and deserves to see the records, especially the tax records. Since he is president of the organization there are some legal things he is bound to. Him asking for the records is him keeping in compliance with those laws. Is the historical society a non-for-profit organization?

If so then they are required BY LAW to supply any and ALL financial document to any member upon written request. Failure to do so can be reported to the Attorney General. Missouri's current AG then has the right to appoint people to take over control of the organization or he has the right to revoke the NFP status.

He is not the president. They are only required to supply access of financial documents to members contributing over 50% of operating expenses. All he contributed was grief.

If you are a member and it is a NFP organization then any member may request a copy of the financial documents by written request and they MUST be supplied. That is the law.

If he was President then a copy should have been supplied to him. He should have requested an audit when he was president.
