I had to opportunity to attend Johnston City's city council meeting tuesday the 9th. While attending this meeting the mayor's mother happened to make a rude comment about another citizen of the city and when that citizen confronted the mayor's mother the argument began. The argument ended with the mayor's mother grabbing this citizen's finger and bending it back at that point the citizen the mayor's mother assaulted was guided by family and friends to go outside and and cool off. Some how in all of this mess the mayor was told that this citizen actually pushed his mother(which was not the case at all she never put her hands on his mother, I saw the whole thing) which at this point the mayor ran outside and directed a police officer and I quote "find that fat bitch and arrest her ass, and that's a direct order". I myself find this to be a complete outrage, this display of total disrespect and unprofessionalism of this mayor is a complete joke. I am embarrassed to tell anyone that I live in Johnston City because of how our idiot of a mayor acts. I think we(the citizens of Johnston City) need to stick together and this man needs to be removed from office. I believe anyone could do a better job than what this idiot has proven. So if you're with me lets get the ball rolling and get this man out of office!

what was the "citizen's" finger doing in the first place in order for the mayor's mother to grab it??? Sounds like maybe someone stuck their finger in someone's face. I'd do the same if it were stuck in my face. Just sayin.

There are always groups of people who are not happy with the mayor, police force, firemen or whomever. Instead of griping about the situation, get on board for once and try to help out.

The mayor's mother chose to jump up in the citizen's face while the citizen was TRYING to address the council. This isn't just a "group" that isn't happy with the "mayor or whomever", we are the only ones (who have gumption and are not afraid to speak up and don't have our heads in the sand and want to have pride back in our town) who attend these meetings and see the corruption going on. Seriously, this is childish that the mayor needs his mommy to stick up for him? He needs his big boy pullups, at least at the meetings, and if he (and OTHER council members) cannot address citizens on what they vote on, then apparently they are doing something they are ashamed of. They are pathetic and should resign or be replaced. Jimmy Dean lost a son to a violent car wreck, yet he wants to get rid of OUR first responders! I say get rid of HIM AND HORN!

I never read these crazy things, but when I was told my deceased son was mentioned I decided to.
I have NEVER said I was for removing the first responders, and unless something huge comes up to change my mind I never will.
Yes I did say that do to financial reasons I thought we should limit our response to in town calls EXCEPT for car accidents. I still feel that way until the city gets on its feet to be able to pay for doing this.
If you have something to say at least have the courtesy to sign your name, or ask to talk to me as I will gladly explain how I feel on an issue, and I will also try and respect your view as well.
Please, in the future leave my son out of this.
Whoever posted that comment needs to get facts straight before posting behind a phony name.
This is my first, last and only post, and I really don't plan on reading anymore of these off the wall comments.
Thank you for your time and have a Blessed Easter.

When is the last time we had anyone in office that really cared about the town, versus just in it to get their way or enjoy the benefits of being in power?
Who knows when the next election is gonna be? I think its time to look hard and find people to run that are only in it for change and not greed. Im talking about people who wouldnt dream of running, but would be perfect to lead us to something better. Forget whats going on today, if we take conrol away from these by getting the right people in, we can undo this bull crap.

. Jimmy Dean , this isn't about your son...."Ets get to the facts..... Ryan is nothing more than your "yes man" , everybody with any sense knows you run the show and Ryan is a "figure head" he has no political background yet was elected mayor. You hire this Mueler clown who has ridiculous crap on his office wall that he was/is a Texas Ranger...question.. Was he born in Texas? Check into it...,nobody can be a Texas Ranger unless they are a native born Texan.. Then you guys try to ruin the fire chief over a fund raiser
With one of your "audits". Jimmy you're a wolf in sheeps clothing, how about all the suspected fires you were "alledgedly" involved in in the past. Why Jc hasn't thrown you out I have no idea. And these comments of Bart Lind being mayor ? Lol what a joke, his wife might as well run, she does everything for him as it is. Its a joke he's even an alderman. And your acting police chief, I mean seriously... He's been a cop how long? Two, three years tops ? Lol. That place has turned into a joke, all the cops do is traffic, god forbid they'd look into anything criminal. Returning to Lind...god if he was mayor his butthole buddy Kendrick would be chief lol. Talk about another wolf in sheeps clothing. And Jimmy, I love your "happy easter" comment, like you could care less, you're probabaly cussing up a storm to yourself. You're a phony just like every other politician out there. To the public and in the public eye you're nice as can be, in your surroundings you're a snake. Have a great day JC. Wake up and vote home rule in, maybe it will help save that town. Thank God it will take the power out of the mayors hands... Because he is a real joke.

Oh.... Ps. You people should be going to Dave Shadowens door and begging him to run, that is a great man, who wouldn't be in it for greed, he is a die hard Jc resident and one of the best guys I've ever met. He would have a lot of great ideas I'm sure to help that city.

csa i do believe dave shadowens would be a good addition to the council. but in our form of goverment the mayor make a choice for replacment members and council approves or disapproves. dave will have a chance in april to run again. as for any other comments im not going to fall into your bs.by the way you see i used my name.

Dave Shadowens might be a nice guy, but he's lost three times.
People don't want him and I hope he realizes this.
It's stuff on this board that will make home rule fail, and I can see why after reading this trash.

I didn't call him a loser. I said the people have said enough is enough and they don't want him.
He should realize this.
Don't twist my words it was pretty plain what I was saying.
Some people can not accept defeat maybe he is one of them.
Still a lot of misfits on the council.

discribe misfits because not all council think alike. thats what makes a person different thier views and thoughts.if we all thought alike there would be no checks and balences. if all the people on hear agreed there would be no one to talk about. i hope to see ya at the next meeting with new ideas on old thoughts.
