The following is transcript of an interview with mayor Mitchell

Good morning folks. We are happy to have the honorable Mayor Jim Mitchell as our guest.

Good morning Mr. Mitchell.

Have just a few questions.

How come the Christmas lights are still up?

Mitchell: It's the Weather.

How come you you did nor present a treasurer's report in 20 months?

Mitchell: It's the weather

How come Lakeview is not maintained?

Mitchell: It's the weather

How come there is no new businesses in town?

Mitchell: It's the weather.

Why did you break the city water lines attempting to illegally bury construction materials:

Mitchell: It's the weather

Why are the police on 57 while crime is rising in town?

Mitchell: It's the weather

How come water bills are so high?

Mitchell: It's the weather

Why do you have the worst attendance of any mayor in JC history?

Mitchell: It's the weather

Thank you mayor for that insightful interview.

That interview was a disgrace. Every town in the state has their Christmas decorations down but JC. Mitchell had 3 excuses: the weather, the Christmas Committee, and politics.
Well I'm sorry but we have had a lot of 60-70 degree days this winter, weather is no excuse. Neither are the good people of the committee that give their time to help. Mitchell is the chief officer of the city and he should buck up like a man and take care of the problem. We all know however, whining and blame are all we will ever get from him and the city council.

Wow! Advocating someone committ suicide. You are one sick puppy dam builder. Ever notice the threats and calls for violence always come from the Goof Troop and their supporters?
We are recommending ideas. We know that unless Mitchell is voted out it will be 4 more years of higher taxes, higher water rates, lawsuits, scandals, higher crime, dirtier town, horrible looking cemetery, and more excuses and blame. We can stop all of this folks, Vote Mitchell OUT in April!
You are super dumb

Read the above, this is the goof troop. Nothing but people who bully the old and weak. And, like most bullies they are a bunch of loosers. Stand up for the little guys JC. Vote Mitchell out and show you can't be bullied

Would the lights be down without the complaints? Not a chance! It wasn't the lights people had a problem with, it's the poor management and excuse making people had a problem with.

Someone advocates someone committing suicide and all they say is "what ideas would you give to a new mayor" How about sticking nut jobs like dam builder in a mental institution.
