Totally agree!!! Clean house and start anew. Dies anyone else question why there aren't any voting districts with representation? Why are all seats at-large? That's where the change needs to start. Get that loser city manager out!!!!
It doesn't need to stop there. Perhaps they could determine if it is true that a department head impregnated another department head or not. Wouldn't that be misconduct if true? Perhaps just a rumor.....

Myron will not be re-elected due to her back stabbing the seniors concerning the Seniors Center. Vance Cheek will be a "Yes Man" like the last time he was on the Commission. What the City Mananger wants, Right Cheek will give him.
Jane's train has left the station with no passengers/voters. I heard that Brock is Jane's pick. Is that so?

1. It says Senior Center on the side of the building.
2. Seniors have full access the the entire building.
3. Non-seniors have limited access to the building.
4. Parts of the building are designated as seniors only.
5. The seniors tie up two basketball courts all day.
Having keys to the building just means you are there to let the seniors in.
And you fail that the seniors have esentially paid for it. Remember there has/was a promise to build a "stand alone" Senior Center and the funds set aside for it. It was Peterson and commission members in a non publicized meeting at Wing Deer Park (?Sunshine Laws)5 years ago. He confessed at the ribbon cutting that the only way to do the MPCC was to take the money that had been set aside.

Frank Bolus has a new web site @frankbolus.com . Check it out. He is runn a true "peoples" campaign. Using a very limited budget it will take people getting involved and telling their friends to go vote for Frank Bolus.

Don't vote for Tomika! He is too wasteful with taxpayers money. He supports Larkey's two million dollar athletic facility at Boone instead of safety officers in schools. I want him off the county commission not on both the county and the city! Heaven help us he'll bankrupt both!!!

Money set aside for a senior center and the seniors "paying for it" are two different things. At least you have come around and admit that it is a senior center.
Tomita or Tomika

Which is it? Either way stay away from him!! He spends too much money on the county commission!

I was planning to vote for Tomita but have changed my mind due to the fact that he wants to spend big bucks on athletics in the city and county. No more new taxes please.

Cheeks is the only one that has a good track record and is running a winning campaign with No Tax Increase. Brock and Tomika want to raise taxes so they're off my list. Cheeks is also pro SRO. Brock and Tomika are anti-gun. It's easy Cheeks/Bolus ticket

It is very plain that Jane will not get elected. I know who she is and will not vote for her. Some people let a little power go to their head and Plain Jane is one of them.

I don't think city commissioners have the right to take your guns, maybe your money but not your guns!

Plain Jane Myron's time on the city commission has come to an end. She knows that she betrayed the seniors of this city and now she is trying to convince everyone that she did us a favor. Phil Carrigar new that his chances of getting re-elected was slim due to the same reason. I hope that everyone also realizes that Vance Cheek is also a snake in the grass and will be a YES man for the city mananger. HE IS ONE OF THEM !! Lets be smart and elect some new blood to our commission. There are several worthy candiates that would do an excellent job but Myron and Cheek has had their turn. Let's move forward!

I'd rather call it a City Commission Mosey, not a race. The same old bowl legged slow walk that lines the pockets of the contenders. Small time politicians with big time schemes to make more pocket lettuce that benefits themselves and their cronies. No wonder it's still Little Chicago here.

Bolus and Cheeks will watch out for us. Cheeks was good last time and Frank will make it better

I'm voting for Frank Bolus and Jenny Brock! Since Jane Myron will be gone, I want another woman on the commission. She's done a good job on the school board. I don't want anybody who has already been on the commission like Vance Cheek, nothing personal against him. We need new blood!

One thing is for certain sure, a vote for a democrat in this race, is a vote for such nonsense as we see from the left all the time.

Taking away guns, banning large sodas, banning tobacco in stores, promoting one leftist extremist agenda after another one, banning this and that, requiring this stupid regulation here and another one there, and the nonsense and stupidity goes on and on.

BOLUS is a liar. Self-serving ex government employee and politician. Lies about anything to get elected. A pathetic loser and would probably take a bribe from someone.

If Bolus is a liar and career govt worker, Brock is a liberal, Myron is a lying liberal, and Tomita is a spend and tax liberal, who gets my second vote
