Hey Artie (allen) Source has it you are the swing vote in whether we get a 120.00 raise on our water bill from now on,and the water department gets a 3% raise across the board. I voted for you as councilman with the thought that you were for the people in your district. Instead it seems you are in the good buddy click.Two Councilman are for it and two are against the raise you seem to be the swing vote Ps returning phone calls would be nice quit ducking the questions soon or later you have to vote

If he votes for the raise I will vote him out. I voted for Artie bc I was told he would make changes and wouldn't go along with the good ole boys. I have spoke to Artie on the phone about the raises and the water rate going up and I got the standard answer from a politician "I will look into it and get back with you". He is just like the rest. He may prove us wrong but I would bet on it.

That sounds odd that someone would have to look into something that was on the front burner for some time now. Are they doing their job or not taking it serious? If the person was against it or had any negative thoughts of it you would of had more of a discussion from him on the matter. My bet he will vote both in.

Small town local power/politics win every time. It is a shame but I think your gut feelin's are right. I would of told him upfront you did not want I look into it and get back to you answer before you started the conversation. That makes them show their cards right then.
