The filing date has not arrived yet. I have heard that
Ned Stichman, Leonard Caflisch, and Roger Powell have filed for City commission. Scary group if you ask me.

But possibly less scary than the group we have now.

What is Topix for if not sharing information? It's for hiding behind anonymity in order to spew vile rumors, lies and innuendoes about anyone and everyone, regardless of age, sex, race or religion.

Less idiots on the ICC board than anywhere else, but everything is relative. ANYTHING that will counteract the idiot train wreck that is Hoite Caston will be good.

Wally got tired of all the crap going on this Topix and decided to give it a break. I have kind of done the same thing, only commenting on those issues where I felt I could contribute to intelligent conversation and issues involved more than who was sleeping with who and who had a dose of the clap.

Wally is indeed running for ICC Trustee. He has spent the last couple of years familiarizing himself with the school and how it functions; what it does for the community and what it costs to operate. If it involved the college, he wanted to know more about it and the hows, whys and and whos. If anyone has tried to educate himself more about the college and what makes it tick, I would like to know who that person is.

I believe Davis Wallis is sincere in his desire to help the college help the community and I also endorse him as a candidate for the position of Trustee for the college. He needs your vote during the February primary election to succeed. Give him a boost and vote for him during the primary elections.

We have not always agreed on the best course of action on a given issue, but he has always been able to communicate his reasons why we don't agree and was always willing to listen to my side of the discussion with an open mind.

Is Wallis the only one running? I think there's more than one seat up...not sure. Are the CURRENT trustees running for their own seats?

How can I take the college elections seriously when at the last election this town elected Hoite Caston. He is certifiable. Totally insane.

Wallis would make a good candidate. Well Wally thats 3 votes mine yours and Indys.

Caston only won because the conservatives split their ticket among many candidates. Now the college is stuck with this human wreck for four years!!

Oh, leave Hoite alone - his house is going to blow over in a stiff wind, and then he might come to you looking for a place to stay.

Hard to picture Wallis getting along with a college president. Never met the president, but I've met Wallis.

You need to meet the College President. Dr. Barwick is a one of a kind gem, and the college is very fortunate to have him.

The only thing I would have a bone to pick with your statement is it not the Trustee's job to get along with the President. The President works for and with the Board as a whole and not individual Trustees.

While one Trustee might dominate the discussion, remember that the majority rules. I can't believe that Hoite is that big of a pain in the ass, but then I haven't seen him in action at a meeting.
