With tomorrow being the deadline for candidates to file for City Commission. I was curious what people on here were thinking of the candidates that we know of so far.

Here are the ones that I am aware of thus far.

Mick McCallister

Jim Sands -(filing on Tuesday, incumbent)

Bob Henderson

Mike Ryan

Lawrence Ruiz

Scott Johnson -(says he is running a write in campaign but I think that he will file tomorrow, incumbent)

Are these candidates that people think will do a good job? It is awefully early to tell as we have not heard anyone speaking their mind other than their little little blurbs when they were announcing their candidacy, but I think that many people can make a general statement on this with their knowledge of who these people are and their experiences within their jobs and in the community.

I know that the blurb in the paper lead me to think that Ruiz was not a good candidate as he wants to work on fixing the Fort Riley rules for landlords (which he just happens to be). I am not voting for someone who will be on the board to serve their own purposes!! Oh and I am not going to vote for Scott Johnson for the same reasons.

Other than that I am not too sure about any of these other candidates. Does anyone out there have an opinion?

You must not be watching city meetings. Scott always has facts to back him up. Don't you want the facts before voting on an issue? You can't just have yes, commissioners and not question what's on the agenda. Or we will be like the usd 475 board. Issues need to be challenged. Plus during work session, citizens need to ask question, it's our tax dollars... Wake up out their, come to meetings before putting your hat in the ring!

you must be watching a different commission meeting than the rest of us. Asking questions does not equate to having his facts. Look how many times the attorney has had to let him know that he's wrong.
Scott talks a lot about people contacting them and speaking up, but he has made it more than clear that he doesn't want to hear from anyone who doesn't agree with him.
But - that's not to say that the other commissioners are doing a whole lot better.

If you would have been paying attention, these were jokes given that the Scooter supporter wrote "Wake up out their." It was their version of grammer nazi. Bravo move Out Their.

More paranoia from Jerry, who's dumb enough to think Scott actually reads Topix.

He reads it daily and posts retarded bullsh*t all over topix. You can tell it is him because his whiney illiterate posts are full of nonsensicle blabber. Very entertaining, though Unlike kangaroo who just posts boring redundant blabber.

It doesn't really matter who is on the city commision! It is just a dog and pony show to rubber stamp anything to f**k the taxpayers.
The next big thing is going to be an expensive sports complex.These things always start small then take on a life of their own.
Why can't they use our tax dollars to fix the f**king streets instead of wasting it on crap like that.
Remember North park and how that was going to be a regional baseball park that was going to draw millions to JC. Hows that working for us?

Pithy quotes, satire, and intellectual humor are lost on the average Topix poster , even Jerry Bob.

For all of those who are making negative responses in this forum quit your complaining. If you believe you can make a difference then put your name in the big hat and run.
I didn't hear anything about a question and answer get together with the candidates however. It takes more than one person to make ones concerns happen. At least Scott Johnson tried to help with the issues with Junction City.
In other words you complaining bunch of crybaby mambe wambe's Grow Up stand up and voice your opinions don't complain and make nothing happen.
