Weidle and City Council Take Notes
Posted in the Marquette Forum
#1 Aug 11, 2012
Dumbasses like Really ask why people don' show up to city council meetings.Who wants to see slobs that are backwards further mess up a once great city?
I will start posting what a city council meeing should look like! Check this one out.
Notice men wearing suits and ladies dressed nice.....compare that to our slobs.Does Kallas or Magnus own a nice shirt? Does Garro own a dress or pants suit?
Notice they honor the procurement manager that goes out of the way to be honest and spend tax payer money the best way possible.
When Princeton council wants to spend money they all hide in private session . In fact, every important decision is done behind closed doors...so why would anyone want to see the Princeton boobs hiding in a closet to make a decision?
I will keep posting what a council meeting should look like ...in hopes that the Princeton boobs will learn something.

I would assume that if the council members in Princeton were getting paid the $30,000+ salary that they get in Huntsville, Texas....they would have no problem wearing suits.
#3 Aug 11, 2012
I have to agree with you on this one officer. Our council is comprised of unsuccessful people that can't afford a nice shirt.....they do need Princeton tax payer money to even appear presentable at a counci meeting.
Lets help them together....I will keep postng about what a good council meeting should look like and you pass arounda can at the bars to collect money to buy these boobs a nice shirt to show up at council meetings.
Yep Really you are right the taxpayer should be responsible for dressing our council. Brilliant. As a cop we do pay for your clothes....so I understad why you think like that.LMAO.

Weidle and the boobs...check out this Wisconsin City....
Notice the importance they place on tax payer sureys and satisfaction, they even have an email service to copy all residents on city happenings, and notice their pride in City recreational facilities....

Why does it bother you so much what a council person is wearing? How judgemental of you. Who cares? Are you trying to tell me that you have fashion sense? Judging by what you wear.....you have some catching up to do yourself.
#6 Aug 12, 2012
Because they should have some pride in themselves and the community they represent.I don't expect a dumbass like you to understand.
#7 Aug 12, 2012
I guess I'm judgemental too because I think the council should at least be dressed in a business-casual manner.
"Really"...this is not to be mean or disagree with you but their attire looks like they could not care less.
You're probably going to say "well JSM, look how you dress!" or something, but I wouldn't show up as a counsil person looking like I just rolled out of bed, and I was in fact appauled when I saw how they were dressed when I went to my first counsil meeting.
#8 Aug 13, 2012
Agreed. Their attire screams "I don't care!" Really/OMG don't understand this simple concept of looking presentable when you represent the public.
Look at the PPD....if the tax payer didn't pay for their clothes....can you imagine how bad they would look!
Its game over.
#9 Aug 14, 2012
I honestly don't care what they wear. Some of them go to the meetings from work....with their work clothes still on....who cares. Why would I want them to be "posers" with business attire.....that isn't who they are. For the most part, they represent "working class" people....whatever they wear is fine by me. Why does this have to be an issue? You talk about respect....I think the lack of respect is coming from the people that look for things to complain about like the clothes that someone is wearing.
#10 Aug 14, 2012
Actually it is commonplace for City Councils to have a prescribed or sometimes unwritten rule of dress code.
In fact, many council meetings are held at 7 or 730PM to allow council members time to go home and eat something and change clothes for the meeting.
Even in a business casual workplace there are still codes for dress ie., collared shirt, no profanity on clothes, no sneakers,...
Agree with it or not....it is commonplace for council members to dress for meetings.
#11 Aug 14, 2012
I agree, this should NOT be an issue. They should show respect for their positions and have enough common sense to show up looking decent.
#12 Aug 14, 2012
James I apologize that you read the dumbass known as Really/OMG and probably think that is how Princeton thinks.
You seem very polite and you understand councils and how they should work. Really is a dumbass and doesn't even know what you mean by "business casual". He has never owned or ran a business.
He is a lazy sponge that lives off the taxpayer and expects handouts.
Notice where he said that Princeton doesn't pay enough for council members to dress appropriately. He really thinks that taxpayers should give council members more money so they can wear a collared shirt to a meeting!
He and OMG are liars! They would have people believe that Burgermeister has downsized the police department. The reality is the police department is the exact same size it was when the Hamburglar took over. The only downsize was the population, the # of bars and the # of teens....and those three things should mean the police department should be downsized or outsourced.
I dare you to try to stay polite while dealing with these dumbass liars. I gave up a long time ago.
I know they are cops or people very close to the cops and they are trying to protect and justify their jobs when they are NOT needed. So at this point I just have fun watching them make complete idiots of themselves.
#13 Aug 15, 2012
I have been to meetings and have never seen the council dressed in a matter that would be considered offensive. Granted, they aren't in suits, but they aren't dressed to go play in the mud either. What is your big issue?
#14 Aug 15, 2012
you r so full of it. First you say it doesnt matter. Then you say the tax payer should give them more so they can afford nicer clothes. Then you say you never seen them dressed poorly after someone who knows what he is talking about says that most councils do dress nice.
Make up ur mind.
#15 Aug 15, 2012
You are sooooooo FPV's alter ego. I never said to give anyone more money. The example that your other idiotic personallity gave was for councilmen that made a salary of over $30,000. Probably people that don't have to carry another job. If it is their primary job, then a dress code of some kind would make sense. Personally, I don't think it applies or really even matters here in Princeton, Wisconsin. The council here represents the working class, and in my opinion, dress the part. If you want to make a federal case out of it, be my guest. In my opinion, it just shows how shallow you are.
#16 Aug 15, 2012
My point is why do people have to make an issue out of it? Again, they should have enough common sense to show up dressed the part.
Lawyers represent people accused of crimes, should they show up in court dressed like a stereotypical criminal?
Not to bring up Milwaukee again....but years ago there was a big controversy about a statue of a blue shirt that was to be put up near the airport, and many people disagreed with it because they thought it would portray Milwaukee as being just a "blue collar" city.
When people show up to counsil meetings and see an elderly woman in short-shorts and some "dudes" wearing baseball caps and old t-shirts it makes the city look bad. Bad as in *uneducated*, classless, lacking culture, etc...and NOT a city that someone would want to open a business (besides a ghetto store like DG) in or take seriously.
I'm NOT necessarily saying the council is that way but they're dressed like they are.
#17 Aug 15, 2012
You understand why Council members dress accordingly. Most do not wear $2000 Italian suits. Nor do they wear t-shirts and sneakers. Most wear business csual which is a nice collared shirt and slacks and dress shoes. That is middle of the road and appropriate for a council meeting.
Your council wants to be represenattive of all the people, not just the rich or working class. But they do want to look nice because your city does want to convey that you are NOT just hayseeds or factory workers,.....
#18 Aug 15, 2012
James, the reality is that here in Princeton we have a dumbass like Really/OMG that we have to explain to that elected officials should dress nice for a council meeting. Its just plain sad.
This same dumbass will scold people to attend meetings that the very leaders could give a ship about attending based on their appearance. And when you do attend a meeting to witness these slobs in person....as soon as there is an item that you want to hear the councils opinions on...they all go hide in private session. Its a joke.
In the last 4 years one council person, Ernie Pulvermacher was willing to question financial decisions and speak out loud without going into private session. And he was stabbed in the back by other council members like Garro and also Weidle for doing so.
James, to tell you how bad it was Ernie dared ask the City Administrator to share his schedule and availability and Weidle (the young city administrator) posted his outlook calendar on the Internet....but made sure to include a date which was reserved for "Ernie drama".
This city just doesn't expect professionalism from its leaders.You and I and JSM and many would think its such a simple thing that an elected official would show up to a council meeting looking nice....but then you have a dumbass like Really/OMG that expects soo little from a Princeton leader that he doesn't think that is necessary.
We need good leadership and higher expectations of the boobs that are presently elected and running the city.
#19 Aug 16, 2012
Ernie was and continues to be an ass. And so are you. Game over.
The actual truth is while ernie asked important questions he's arrogant and mean and cruel to the people he supposed to work with which is why he was thrown out of office when he ran for mayor. Sometimes it's not what you say, but how you say it. Case in point nobody listens anything you say because you are a jerk too and refuse to live in a world where people disagree with you. I would venture to guess that all the Ernie's in general werent such jerks to people, they would fare much better as active participants in the community.
I hate be the person to break it to you, but nobody cares that you don't like the police. Nobody.
There are literally three people complaining about them on the Internet and no one complaining about them in the real world.
Fpv... Get over yourself. You are not that important. Move on to a topic that people actually care about or involves the municipality in which you live.

I have no intention to enter your community debate other than to share what I know to be commonplace amongst Wisconsin Cities and managers and administrators and maybe give a couple objective comments that may help.
I will say that when I looked up some crime reports of Princeton it doesn't appear that there was ever much crime. So it would be hard for one to argue that the present number of officers turned a bad situation around. It seems there never has been much crime in Princeton. That fact coupled with a decreasing population does suggest that a city manager could investigate cost cutting measures. I am not saying to do anything. But investigating the matter does seem reasonable.
As for dress...it is what it is....elected officials should make an effort to look nice when discussing matters that effect an entire community.
"Fresh princeton" you make very valid points and I appreciate your passion. But may I suggest just trying to temper your tone. I think the old addage you get more flies with honey than vinegar comes to mind....
"Really" ...I am unsure if you a policer officer? If you are ...then be proud to represent...there is no need to hide? Which begs the question....if there are so many police supporters where are they on these threads? One would think you would be anxious to set the record straight and share the great things you are doing for the community and there is no reason to hide behind a screen name.
My last piece of advice would be for everyone to be patient with a new city administrator. When I talked to a collegue that knew Princeton he emailed me that "Princeton changes admins. like most people change socks"...there is probably a reason for that. Look within.
I am not making an excuse for the present admin. taking a shot at a council member via a public format ie., posting his calendar with an inappropriate meeting title(if that really happened). I am just saying give a new guy a chance or you will be looking sooner than you may want to be looking for a replacement.
Good luck to the Princeton community and your problems can be solved with a little teamwork.
