We should thank Mayor Bob Peters for promising to run a positive campaign on the issues. That's what we need as we decide how to go forward. Thanks! Let's hope that Topix posters catch on too.

His letter said he runs on his record. I say this in all politeness: I am not impressed with or happy with his record, or the "my way or the highway" way he runs this City, and he will not have my vote. Sorry, there is no positive way to say this.

PS I am not a Margie supporter either. I am waiting for a decent Republican to cast his or her hat into the ring.

The mayor MUST have been misprinted. What they published was "I want to run on my record," but he must have meant "I want to run OVER my record."

That's the only thing that makes sense. That, or he's even stupider than I thought.

Margie's dishonesty and lack of any successful contribution to the civic life of Little Falls are among the issues. So too is her status as the de facto MSF candidate. So too is her husband and his knack for getting arrested by the Little Falls police.

No matter what that's a very nasty thing to say. I would say you are the stupid one hiding behind topix. Would you say that to his face?

Why are putting your neck out there and running?

The problems Mayor Peters faces are not solved by one city in CNY they are widespread throughout NY, the North and even all of America. Sniping at him for the last four years has just raised everyone's blood pressure and made LF a divided community. And if you think Margie Widay is the answer you must be smoking dope.

Your right, when you read topix with all the negativity you start to think it represents LF. But you are right the vast majority know Mayor Peters has done a solid job under tough economic times and THANK him for all is hard work.

It is NOT character assassination if it is TRUE. Your carpetbagging candidate Margie has just been caught telling a whopper of a lie about her resume (she claimed she is a member of the bicentennial committee, but she is not), and her husband seems to have a knack for getting arrested by the LFPD. And if you bother talking to Margie, it takes all of two seconds to figure out she is as dumb as a burlap bag of bricks. And you think she would not be a disaster as a mayor?

In her press release to the Evening Times. That article was user-provided content. Busted!

I've asked 1,000 times for proof of this assertion and none has been forthcoming. So here goes for the 1,001st time, to no avail again I'm sure...

You have stubbornly ignored the evidence, since you are in the tank for Margie the Mendacious. But just go talk to somebody who knows ... at the paper, on the committee, or Margie herself. Why ask anonymous people on the internet when you can get off your lazy butt and get it first hand?

What is needed to be mayor:
A willingness to do the job.
A desire to see Little Falls improve.

99.9% of us don't pass this test...
so we need to be supportive of the 00.1% that do.

I am very glad that those threads have started, because I have hoped all along that somebody would introduce the facts about who sent the press release, and under what circumstances. I expect that this is going to reveal not only that Margie sent a press release claiming to be on the bicentennial committee, but also that she was not authorized to speak for the committee and did so anyway in a very childish and disruptive attempt to get more press coverage for her party that she was organizing even at the expense of press coverage for the main events of the day.

She simply does not work well with others.

That is pretty much exactly what happened. Margie wanted to have the spotlight on her and get her own name in the paper, and so she tried to preempt the bicentennial committee press release by issuing her own press release first. But she spoke in the name of the committee without their permission, she spoke off message, and she lied to the paper about her membership on the committee and her permission to speak for the committee. Very bad. People got really mad about it. I wonder how the paper will word their correction, since they printed the PR they got accurately, but what they got was fraudulent.
