I am so sick of you people getting on here and bashing KEH the way you do. He doesn't do anything to anyone he invests his time and efforts for the betterment of citizens being informed he speaks up for the people he is trying toinsure justice is served and holding law enforcement accountable and he doesn't just sit on his high throne bitching on here about things that need changed without trying to do something about it and make things happen. This bashing of him is tired and old. It's because of jackwagons like you all that I will vote for KEH!

From what I have seen of Steve he has no reason to be elected to any office. He is nothing more than a "Shit Stirrer" and would do nothing good for our city government. Our city officials have more than enough with the state of the economy and money shortfall as it is. All Steve would do would be to pick fights with the Mayor and keep trouble stirred all of the time.
I have heard that Steve does have plans on running for office once again, all I can say is I hope and pray the day never comes that he is elected to any office, Metropolis deserves better.

I think you sir are a shit stirrer based on your post. The only time I have seen KEH stir up shit is when an official or council is in the wrong or something needs brought up. I have talked to KEH when he was getting signatures for his petition and one of the reasons he is running is to put a stop to the mayor bullying the Aldermen when they don't vote the way he wants. I say it's about time we get some people in office who have a pair and will go toe to toe with the Mayor when necessary. You're right Metropolis does need better and I thinking that KEH would be better. Not to mention from what I can tell he isn't beholden to special interest groups or clergy and he certainly isn't part of the good ole boys club. I think he would vote in the interest of the city and the people and not in just the mayor's interests.

You sir are able to have your opinion and I am allowed to have mine. But what is it KEH is going to do to as you say "Stop the bullying?" I guess he will jump up out of his seat and just start kicking the Mayors ass, well I will agree the Mayor needs that done on a regular basis, but if KEH were elected and he does not agree with the rest of the council all he can really do is to vote against the item up for a vote and if the other aldermen vote for just how is he going to change the out come?
And if I follow your post right you are saying that Alderman Brown don't have any balls, well she is a lady I guess that explains that, but I have seen her standing up more in the past two years. Just what has she done that was so wrong? If the Mayor is the problem and if KEH is so great why dont he run for Mayor? after all that sounds like that is where the problem is. Signed stirring

I am sorry that you feel the way that you do about me. Do I know you or something? I respect your opinions on me, although I don't agree. It seems to me like you have some preconceived notions about me. I would love the opportunity to meet with you in person and I will be happy to outline my plans for the betterment of this city for you, then you can make your conclusions based off of that. And no, I will not post on here my plans because that would be campaigning and I won't be repeating that same mistake that I did on here the last election. If you don't want to sit down with me and discuss my plans then keep an eye out for any meet the candidate forum roundhouse meetings that come out and attend those. When I find out about them I will be sure to post them on my news page and on here. Also, watch the Metropolis Planet they always send out a questionnaire to all the candidates. I will fill this out unlike some candidates who feel they don't have to. Have a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

The fact is you spoke to me a couple of weeks ago and when to told me just how the Mayor mistreats the current aldermen and woman, well short of you inviting the Mayor outside there is not much you can do to stop him from doing what he wants. if you do challenge him you will do nothing but show the other 7 aldermen you have no ability to do anything to settle a problem but cause a scene and then they will just see you as a joke and will not work with you and then you will be out there all alone not able to do anything but to make the council meeting a bigger clown show than they are now.

Better get registered first. and with your vote he may have just enough to beat Mrs Brown. I can't wait to see him win and then watch the meeting every time they are on the tv and see the Mayor shut KEH mouth, The Mayor will call him down and fine him so fast it will make his head swim. I really wish he could get on the council I need the laughs.

Sounds to me like you are upset that I am bringing to light what is going on behind closed doors in how the Mayor treats the Aldermen/Alderwomen. My point is to shed light on just why some of our Council members vote the way they do. It's not fair and the Mayor is way out of line reaming any Aldermen for the way they choose to vote. Is this not abuse of power? It certainly isn't legal I'm sure. Just something to think about. If the Aldermen were not being badgered and if they didn't feel a need to cater to him or risk his wrath just maybe things would get done here. I'm not sure I follow your reasoning of if I challenge him I will do nothing but show the other 7 aldermen I have no ability to do anything to settle a problem but cause a scene and then they will just see me as a joke and will not work with me and then I will be out there all alone not able to do anything but to make the council meeting a bigger clown show than they are now. This reasoning of yours makes no sense to me, if i challenge the Mayor berating any Aldermen's decision would that not make the Aldermen want to work with me more because I am standing up for them so that we can do the job we are payed to do? I would think someone standing up to this kind of behaviour would be liberating for them logically speaking. Would not standing up to this kind of action be an attempt to settle a problem? Just saying. But either way that is neither here nor there because from what i am hearing if that zoning ordinance gets passed in February then this won't be an issue of the Mayor allegedly berating any Alderman because he won't be mayor any longer. Problem solved. So either way something will get accomplished.

[QUOTE who="Look up" The Mayor will call him down and fine him so fast it will make his head swim. I really wish he could get on the council I need the laughs.<quoted text>[/QUOTE] Fine me? What in the hell are you talking about there? Are you saying the Aldermen get fined if they go against the Mayor? If so this is news to me.

Although, I don't really know KEH that well I feel that he certainly is not qualified to be Mayor. Now as an Alderman that may be a different story. I mean let's face it it really does not take much intelligence to sit there at the council meetings and vote yes or know. He seems to be very approachable by people and seems to genuinely care about this community, despite all the haters he has. His biggest thing he has going for him is that he is an Independent and is obviously an independent thinker and will speak up and if he has something to say he says it. Although he does need to be more tactfull in how he deals with things so that he doesn't come off as a douche bag crap stirrer. He does a good job with his news thing, I like having an alternative news source to the mainstream we have. I noticed that after he posted the story on his page about businesses closing on Market Street that Channel 3 and 6 decided to follow suit and do stories on it. So in his own way he seems to be bringing a lot more exposure to things that go on here in the city. Local media obviously pays attention to him. The Metropolis Planet has had to pick up their game to keep up with him. So one has to look at how KEH can be a bigger benefit to the city as an Alderman or as an independent news source doing those stories that no one else is doing. I think the latter applies in this case, news is his best contribution to the city not as an Alderman in my opinion.

Do Aldermen have to do a drug test before they are sworn into office, If so someone would not be allowed to take the position Right Steve?

It appears as if someone may be posting under many names asking what have our elected officials have or have not done and should they be re-elected. I ask what has Steve Chaney done for the city of Metropolis and should we vote for him to be our Mayor?
Unless one has been in office, how can anyone say what they have or have not done for the city? Candidates run for office with the pretense of what they want to do and can get accomplished while they are there.

Steve are you really that stupid or do you just think that no one will figure out that this is yet another post you put on here to try to get a vote or a pat on the back. VERY FEW people read your non sense and far as other news sources for following your lead that is crazy. Just how many followers do you have 5 maybe 6 reads?
You have done nothing for the community of Metropolis you only do things for yourself. I also want to ask why in the world did you cuss the guy are the church when they were allowing you and you girlfriend to stay at their shelter during the flood? those people were giving their time efforts to help others and then people like you curse at them. Maybe you should learn from those that give their time to help others before you decide to run for office.I am a avid reader of the Paducah Sun and the Planet and I have never seen any article were you have done anything for anyone other than yourself. Please correct me Stevie if you have any proof. And far as being a douche bag goes, you have to be what you are and a zebra can't hide his stripes.

Obsessed much over KEH? You seem to put a lot of time and effort into posting about him everytime you turn around. OH MY GOD I think you have a hard on for KEH! Are you a scorned ex of his or something? Or maybe like Billy you are threatened by his bid for Alderman? I think it's becoming pretty clear. Oh and BTW I am a fan of his news page and he has over 100 likes actually on his news page smartie! Maybe you oughta check it out.
