The best thing Marine City did was get rid of Tom Raymond.

I feel bad for the people of Cottrellville Township who ended up with Tom Raymond after we got rid of him in Marine City.

Tom Raymond never enforced ordinance violations in Marine City, and he never enforces ordinance violations in Cottrellville Township. That's why Cottrellville Township's living quality has become so much worse since Raymond took over in 2007.

I also noticed Tom Raymond and Mary Agnes Simons gave themselves HUGE raises after Raymond joined Cottrellville Township's staff. That makes me sick. Other politicians are cutting their pay, yet Tom Raymond and Mary Agnes Simons are giving themselves HUGE raises!

The people of Cottrellville Township soon had the intelligence to officially Recall Tom Raymond shortly after he was in office. But Raymond ended up remaining on staff as the supervisor. I really do feel bad for all those people.

I remember how the one and only reason Tom Raymond finally enforced an ordinance violation of blight in Marine City is because the Times Herald and the media got involved so much, since it was a former Sheriff with that junkyard. If it wouldn't have been for the media, history proved that Tom Raymond wouldn't have done anything at all to stop it.

That's the situation the people in Cottrellville Township now face. So I feel bad for them.

Tom Raymond knows he would never get elected again in Cottrellville Township, so he's decided to run for a seat in the District 81 House of Representatives that covers St. Clair County and Lapeer County.
