Well, it is that time again and Wentzville needs to open their eyes to who is running the city. Cheryl Kross needs to be removed from office. She has no knowledge of anything going on around her. Ask her a deep question and you will find out immediately.

Rob Hussey is intelligent and his background and resume show this about him. Once a city manager, he has alot of knowledge about how to run a city. I am sure the other aldermen are talking him down because he would put them in line if elected.

My pick for Fire District is Peanik; I know it is not the choice of the fire department but he will do a better unbiased job than his competition.

To get educated go to and read the bios of the candidates. Takes not more than 10 minutes to get educated.

So I went to the link you provided and read about the candidates but you say Peanick is your choice but has no info on the site. What makes him better then the other candidate and why is the fire department not supporting Peanick?

Because he is not swaying in the same direction as the fire district and the fire district needs a little resistance against many things that are happening in the department. Simply put, when everyone is in agreement so often many things are being covered up. If everything is on the up and up no one would care who is on the board.

Let's get rid of City councel woman Cheryl Kross next week; she is not good for wentzville. She wants to get rid of all events in Wentzville like Wabash Days, 4th of July, the Easter Bunny, Ren Faire, the County Fair, etc. How stupid can you be. She lives in my subdivision and most dislike her due to her knack of knowledge as she tries to act like she knows something.

My vote is for Bob Mainieri. My understanding is Mr. Peanick was asked to run by the "good old boys" from Flint Hill and a member from the administration. Wentzville Fire Dist. needs a leader. Someone who will support progressive emergency services that will adapt with our growing community. Mr. Mainieri has met with my family and has promised fiscal responsibility.

He admits he has the backing of the firefighters. I have seen these hard working men and woman working hard in our community. I see them on the news shoveling driveways, running around town in the pink fire truck, and I recently attended a fundraiser for a teenage girl who was diagnosed with cancer. With Bob in office, I believe he will encourage the firefighters to keep up these services that they currently provide to the citizens of the district.

Bob also said he has been attending district board meetings to get a pulse of what is going on in the district. Mr. Peanick has never been to a meeting, so how would he be getting any information on the district or what direction it needs to go?

My vote is for Mainieri for Leadership and Fiscal Responsibility!

Not to start a arguement I just notice you don't want kross in office because she's out of touch of what's going on then why would you support penick for office of the fire department when he is out of touch with the fire department. I just wanted to ask? No arguement just wanted to make sure you also put that in consideration of your pick.

About Mr Peanick he has indicated he is running for Fire Board to fix problems. He told my neighbor that the problems are about secret meetings but could not provide any detail or problems. It appears by his Facebook page he is attempting to allege problems but can't say what they are! It seems he is not truly informed. My neighbor asked him how many calls they run, firefighters they have etc. he could not answer but kept talking about secret meetings. Then he stated he was qualified as a retired carpenter.

I looked up Mr peanick and per case net and other sites his business failed and his credit is terrible. I then learned he until recently was living in his family members basement as he was bankrupt. Distrurbing really then to find out he just moved back into this area into a rental home. Very suspicious activity.

To top that he is being supported by Tom Shaw Jr a realtor who has several properties listed for sale the fire department owns.. More weird activity...right... Did he ever debate the other guy or speak with anyone at fire department......?

I called fire department today to ask who they support and they said they couldn't answer but told me Mr Peanick has never talked to Chief or inquired what board members do.....

I asked to be called back and was by a guy who said Mr peanick and the district ex lawyer and Peanick best friend we're behind his campaign. Apparently the lawyer was overcharging fire department for years and firefighters and chief pushed to wrong this issue. Mr peanick best friend is the Fire Marshal and his personal lawyer isnthisvex attorney.... Crooks

My son works for the Wentzville Fire District. I asked him what was going on with this election and why they are supporting Bob Mainieri. He stated to me the Jim Peanick was being backed by the Fire Marshall, a former district attorney , former volunteer fire chief, the mayor of Flint Hill, and Tom Shaw Jr (realtor for the districts property).

So here why each of these individuals support Jim Peanick:

Fire Marshall- The "special interest group" Jim Peanick in my opinion is the union. My son said the union has been trying to save the tax payers money by streamlining the Fire Marshall's office because they can no longer issue residential building inspections because of new state legislation and building has been down in the area for years now, but the same amount of inspectors are in the Fire Marshall's office.

The attorney was giving the district bad legal advise (thats why the old board of director left last year) and the legal bills for the district was nearing $60,000 for the year. The new attorney brought in will save the district $26,000 per year.

The former volunteer Chief was promised a position on the board years ago and the "special interest group" did not support this idea so he is mad.

Tom Shaw is the realtor and the realtor contract is approved by the board. So Jim Peanick could approve commission rates for Tom Shaw.

IT WAS ALSO STATED THAT JIM PEANICK HAS NEVER CONTACTED THE FIRE DISTRICT, ATTENDED A DISTRICT BOARD MEETING, OR MET WITH THE EMPLOYEES OF THE DISTRICT. So how can someone have a vision for the district or say the nasty things being reported on the streets if they don attend district meetings.

My personal opinion is the "special interest group" is trying to keep the old time Wentzville Cronies out of Wentzville Fire.

Ok, your favorite won, so now can he get his illigal signs out of right of ways, in common ground entering subdivision and THF properties. YES, these are places that he did not have permission to stick his signs. Shame on him for placing signs on these places.
