I have searched City Hall top to bottom and have yet to find the mythical "backroom" where deals are made. Also I am finding no "cronies" lurking about City Hall. How am I to fullfill the fantasies expressed by posters here on topix if I do not have "cronies" to make deals with,, in a backroom? Now about "coruption", where is the quid pro quo that I should be getting for my votes? According to topix posters I have sold out. Sold out what? What was I supposed to get for my vote? Maybe I was given something and it was left in that mysterious back room. I hope it doesnt have an expiration date and doesnt spoil. I shall continue to search and If I find the corrupting spoiles arranged by cronies in a backroom, I will share it immediatly with topix. good nite.

Mr. Burleson!
As a representative of this city I expect better from you. It's one thing to see the condescending comments you post but to start your own thread just to stir up reactions is ridiculous.
I have said on other threads how I defended you because I really thought you were better than lowering yourself to be an online bully.
I am so disappointed with the direction that this city is headed because it can't get itself together and be peaceable and discuss issues like civil humans. And here you are perpetuating that! You represent this city and this is the message you want to give? That you troll on topix? Come on!
I am so upset with how you treat people. And this is coming from someone who genuinely liked you. It's frustrating. I sincerely hope that you will, in the future, decide to engage the city in a more professional way. If you choose to use Topix as your medium then you should elevate yourself above the fodder and give concise answers, not stoop to the level of name calling and instigating.

Disgusting. A city official openly mocking citizens. Not funny.

For shame, Councilman Burleson.

The sad part about all the backoom and shady deals brought on buy the council is that is does not have to happen. The council can really do anything they wish with 5 or 6 votes. Anything. They decide wheter in the open or on the sly. We elect them to make thse decisions. So remember, you get what you vote for.
Very Discouraging

The mayor is a wannabe tyrant. The Common Council is a pathetic joke. And this clown Burleson is just a buffoon. Little Falls is doomed.

Maybe scrap the whole thing, operate as a village or merge with the town?

The election is in November. Anyone who cares half a hoot should be running or trying to convince decent people to run. The council can change fast. 3 of the current council most likely will not run. Maybe more. I stress, a defiant council makes the the Mayor powerless, which of course he should be.

The whole council changed 2 years ago except for 2. How did that help?

The changes in the council produced horrible results. That is mostly because of apathy, ignorance and stupidity. Some simply do not care, some cannot care and some are just plain stupid , and we know "you cant fix stupid".
What I also said is that you need to run, other people on here who are flinging crap around need to run. Or we need to urge good people to run. A turnaround of several members can make a big difference.

it is so disturbing that people on here continually change their names and post whatever slander they can dream up. If there really is a back room where all decisions are made most of these cowards are only pissed they are not invited. A bunch of Vultures with nothing better to do but make attempts at Hurting others. Go check your Mailboxes, there might be an extra Welfare check, or perhaps that Ambulance chasing Lawyer you hired to ruin the lives of all those you come in contact with has something for you to sign. It was forty acres and a mule, not forty ounces and freedom to slander.
I feel better already.
ohh no

The last time I checked my mailbox there was an illegally mailed green letter from the unMayor.

Today,Sunday the 19th I consulted a psychic at the psychic faire at Beardslee Castle. Madam Hoodooyoodoo has consulted the stars,thrown runes,peered into the glass,consulted the spirits, and checked the alignment of the heavens. All indications have confirmed the fact that City Hall does indeed not have a secret "backroom" for cronies to make secret deals. This was a bit of a letdown. However all indications are positive for Shoppers Square to be completed on time and asbestos mountain to be rehabed. Long Live Madam Hoodooyoodoo!

Well, if there is no secret room, then, where DID you guy decide to give the Tax Assessor job out to one individual without conducting a candidate search, first?

Just me, chiming in from beyond the grave.

Personally, I'd rather these assclowns do their thing in some secret room. I hate looking at those shirts and those Keds.

Seriously, there is something wrong with you. See Jeans post below and answer a question for once instead of responding with the allegedly humorous posts.

You are making a fool of yourself and this City. You are not fit to pour piss out of a boot with instructions written on the heel, let alone be an alderman.

For the good of the City and what's left of your reputation, start taking things seriously or resign.
