I overheard a conversation in a local restaurant, Commissioner Johnson mentioned hes due to be Mayor and I agree its his turn. He said hes ready. Like he says every weak hes goin to be sure the people responsible for the debt pay it back themselves and all the guilty people go to jail. Hes goin to reduce the sundown salute & get rid of the opera house & cut back fire and police departments & wants to give Larry Ruiz more time for fixin his rental stuff. I agree with all that.

Scott will not be mayor. Jack will make a motion and nobody will second it. Either Pat or Cecil will be the new mayor. Larry Ruiz is the biggest joke in town. His rentals are crap, he never fixes anything but he keeps collecting the rent. His lawsuit is a joke and the city won't pay him a dime.

Looks like we are in line for a new version of "The Three Stooges," if this is the case.

The face of Junction City absolutely can NOT be a man who runs our City down to anyone who will listen. It cannot be a man who, instead of moving forward to find and enact a plan to fix this mess - continues to merely point fingers and blame... When is he going to get a clue? We need leaders who can see a vision to solve the issues, instead of only a desire to create more. Scott needs to step down.

Not Takin Turns you are on the money. Scott Johnson is straight up DUD. His family is turning over in their graves. They tried to build this city and his goal is to tear it down. If he thinks it is so bad here he should sell all of his familys stuff that was given to him not earned and move the hell out. GOOD BYE DUD.

According to tradition, the mayor is supposed to make public appearances representing the city. We MUST have a mayor that will show to events and represent us well. I would be very concerned this might not happen with Scott as mayor due to his history regarding public appearances.

He already stated during the last appointment of Mayor that Ft. Riley was not a priority of his and he would not be attending things there.He said that the leaders on Ft. Riley were a bunch of liars.

Can you see him in a suit or a dress shirt and tie, with his sandals and no socks? He will not make a good mayor in appearances.

Tonight was one of the most positive meetings we've had in a long time. I think we're on the right path. This is what intelligence can do for us.

Yes for the first meeting in 2 years Scott Johnson contained his tongue! Incredible show of restraint! Miraculous change of personality! The question now is, will he continue to venomously harass the outgoing commissioners for the rest of their lives? Time will tell.

He knew the new three would never agree to let him be mayor so he told Landes he would nominate Landes for Mayor under two conditions. a. his buddy Jack got a pity position at vice mayor b. Scott got to be on the EDC board.

Can you folks read between the lines? This anti-scott guy in pro-scott clothing, wrote this crap to goad the gullible, like King James, into an anti-scott tirade or he has bad 'overhearing'. You gutless wonders use fake names or other peoples names to entertain yourselves at the expensive of some good people.

The restaurant conversation never happened. There wasn't a plan for Scott to 'take over' the mayorship. Larry Ruiz doesn't need time to fix rentals. The city tore down those rental two weeks after he assumed ownership after Ruiz obtained building permits and was in the process of bringing them into compliance with the condemnation requirements given to the PREVIOUS owner. Ruiz told the city council he had just assumed ownership and filed for a TRO which sat on the judges desk while he was being escorted off of his newly acquired property by JCPD so Glessner's crew could tear his building down.

As for cutting back on the fire department, that sound a little like Scott Johnson by then I am of the mindset that we have a bloated fire department. I'm also of the mindset that we use our limited resources to fund necessary services and then nicities like the Opear House. I don't think Scott or anyone else wants the Opera House to go away because we, the residents of Junction City, have millions of dollars invested in it. I hope one day to see the Opera House as a thriving, self-supporting (with assistance of donations) foundation or privately owned facility.

We have three new commissioners and a lot of lessons learned to draw on. We are on the track to fix things. Let us all try to put our personal feelings and assumptions aside and look forward to a council which, in conjuction with a wiser city management team, will work together and make the right decisions for JC.
