Simonson would be awful. Never finishes anything unless it's a "raingarden". Treats residents disrespectfully.
Tom McCarthy

Simonson had been absolutely awful on the council this year. She has been disrespectful to residents, doesn't understand the city's finances, is clueless on how the city operates. She and the rest of the current council have taken the advice of one resident - Ron Carlson - as their sole input on finances. Carlson wants only to reduce taxes that benefit him.

Janet seems obsessed with raingardens yet can't seem to find the time to spend on the city's finances.

She was one of the leaders in firing the city clerk despite nothing but good performance reviews.

Janet was bad on the council and would be awful as a mayor.

Tommy wants to be Mayor because he thinks it's "Cool" and wants to impress his Daddy by being someone. Janet is NOT disrespectful to citizens. She is open and honest. Some people think that honesty is disrespectful. Tommy thinks that helping his neighbors and friends with their yardwork and household chores would make him a good Mayor. He thinks that driving around the community all weekend and making sure people see him would make a good Mayor. Remember 2008 when the residents DIDN'T want the council to purchase that building??? Who was Mayor then and thoughtlessly spent hearly half-a-million dollars on an old building that needed upgrades???? That's right...Tom McCarthy!!! If you want your tax dollars spent foolishly and your taxes to go up, then go ahead and vote for him....my vote is for Janet, Julia Lambert and Dan Danielson!!!!! They will do the right thing by their community.

That's right, Janet is AWFUL...and Tommy spent $400,000 on a building for City Hall in a community of 500 or so homes where the Realestate market is sagging horribly. JUST TRY and get that much for that building today!!! Tom is FAR from the ideal Mayoral candidate. Sure he's a nice guy, but he DOES NOT have what it takes to lead a community, especially in a recession. Janet is VERY fiscally responsible and will LISTEN to the people in her community....VOTE JANET SIMONSON FOR MAYOR!!!!!

Really...how about some examples of things she hasnt finished!

Do you realize what the raingardens are for? They are to SAVE THE STREETS from erosion of pooling rain runoff. They are an attractive, low-cost way to help redirect rain runoff so that it doesn't puddle on the streets and erode them. Can you see it now....Tommy will overspend and repave EVERY STREET in the city with flat black tar so the kids can draw pretty pictures on it with their sidewalk chalk...he'll even provide the chalk, meanwhile, the retired and hard-working citizens of the community, who can barely make it now due to the slumping economy, will have to go hungry becuase their already exorbitant taxes have gone up to cover the debt Tom got the city into by spending carelessly and buying things they don't need!

GET A CLUE, PEOPLE!

Maybe it was a rumor, but it was overheard that either the mayor or someone on the concil had a foreclosure? If so talk about bad financial responsibility.

KNOW YOUR FACTS!!! It has nothing to do with poor financial responsibility! Maybe go to a council meeting or 2 and read the City newsletter and you would know exactly the FACTS surrounding this "Rumor" Not only that, but there just so happens to be a foreclosure CRISIS in America right now....I know....Let's raise taxes to make housing even LESS affordable. What do you think Tom can buy this time.

I see you rated a comment as Clueless, nuts and misinformed. That's not very NICE!!!! I just to happen to KNOW the facts surrounding the issue of which you speak. You see, by voting for Tom, you run a higher risk of having the city foreclosed upon than if you vote otherwise. You are the one who is misinformed. Your original statement was "I overheard...maybe it's a rumor". How about you simply ASK the person who you believe this happened to and get a CLUE, yourself!

This is what Tom thinks being a good Mayor consists of. Wandering around and making sure people see him. What does that get done?

Also, did you go to the forum on Saturday? Why would he NOT want to answer any questions from "his" residents? He and Ms. Kopp made an opening statement and then LEFT. Would you vote for a person for president if they did this? I think this shows that he is NOT committed and is afraid of looking like a fool because he is not a good leader. He'd be just fine if he could have Cindie answer his questions for him, but he couldn't. Hte man has no spine and can't think for himself. He has to have a bunch of cronies tell him what to do! I guess if tis is who you want running the city then those who vote for him, DESERVE HIM!

Obviusly Opie is in this to make trouble, not to actully get the facts or make an informed decision. Let the city get foreclosed on? I can see how much you care.

I've watched this council for the last two years and I think they've done a way better job than Tommy ever would have. He used to sit at those meetings with that deer caught in the headlights look on his face and let Rick Seiler insult and belittle anyone who argued with him. The only thing Tom ever accomplished was ramming that building down our throats. After what Tom did to this city I can't see whya anyone would ever elect him to anyhting.

What's stopping you? From what I gather Tommy and Cindie have waged a massive misinformation campaign about Janet and Julia for that matter. They'll say what ever they can to get elected. And that scares me because I think Cindie and Tommy will put Cindie back in as clerk if they win. She was a disaster as a clerk, almost got the city sued from what I understand. And she was right there with Tom and that nutcase Rick to make the city buy that building. These two are the worst thing that could happen to this city. We already know how imcompetent and incapable they are. Why would we give them another chance to screw us?

I'll watch but I was told Tommie and Cheryl Kopp coudn't be bothered to attend and Cindie rambled on about volunteers when they were asked a question about the budget. Talk about a clueless, no-show government. Are we really expected to suffer thru 2 whole years of that?

Hey Tom - who really isn't Tom - what performance reviews? I don't rmemeber that you did a review of the clerk becaue I would have noticed that. And I'd rather they listen to Ron Carlson than John Jansen who so oviously did your thinking for you. He busted the budget and they had to get a loan just to pay the bills. where is your fiscal responsibility there?

Not only are they running a smear campaign about Janet & Julia, "someone" printed and illegally posted signs on utility poles all over town about Dan Danielson and some vehicle he has in his driveway. I thought the city had a procedure for complaints. If you have a complaint about a property, vehicle, resident, code violation, etc., then file it with the city. I am certain that Dan would have taken action if he'd gotten a complaint about it, but he never did. Instead, he finds these fliers asking why he doesn't have to follow ordinance. How SPINELESS!!!!
