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 Butch Adams done for the city of Metropolis and should we vote for him to be our Mayor?
Well

Butch is very involved in the Feed The Children organization and really cares about all of the children in the area who have to wonder where there next meal is coming from. He has a big heart and knows that children are our future and need help in this area. Not many care about this matter. Not sure he is Mayor material though. he does have his heart in the right place it seems

he has promptly torn up many unwanted old phone books so that they take up less room in the dump which has an environmental impact.

I believe he will be an up and coming leader here. He has a solid business plan for bringing new businesses here. He sees how this city is dying and plans on doing something about it. He will certainly shake things up at city hall. He has a plan for the youth here and for the benefit of the community. The one thing he has going against him is he doesn't know how to leave things well enough alone, like for instance his issues about the old gas building and the cars and fertilizer truck that have been sitting behind there for years. He needs to worry about things on a much grander scale not just petty stuff like he keeps addressing the council about.

Well that sounds like typical politicting,if he has such great plans when will we here about what they are? You obviously have an inside knowledge of his plans or you could not of made those comments.So tell us whats up,maybe he has a plan but to make an educated decision we need to hear it.

He has been telling everyone hee will give half his salary to the community for a bigger community center with indoor pool and walking track with consultation rooms for kids to get help with things and veterans to get help with careers. He knows the Harley store guy who would like to open a location here. So many people are all about physical fitness he can get some of those businesses to come here. Just to name a few things

Oh! Well, why didn't you say so right off the bat? I'm sure if he calls up Michelle Obama for a grant she will write out a check instantly for millions because....well, he's Butch Adams and he asked. That's how it works, you know. Just call up the first lady and ask but if you really want to get things done just skip her and contact the President directly. I've been thinking of calling him myself for a grant and my very own stealth fighter. Don't worry, you'll recognize it when you see it, I'm gonna pimp it out when they send it to me. I'll park it at one of the new fitness clubs that Mayor Butch builds and give free rides to all the ladies. Oh yeah! Can't wait.

You mean to tell me that with all the budget cuts Washington is making, that Butch was able to get ahold of Michele O'Bama ad secure a half of illion dolars in grnt money,wow,now s that a maching grant becas the majority of grants given to those type of projets requires the person receiving the grant money to match it dollar for dollar, Has Butch looked into that or is he going to match it with his half of the salary?Either way that is never going to happen.Please tell me he has more than that to help pull us out of our economic downfall?? And would who is suppling these physical fitness centers with their supplies now? did Butch get Michele to send a letter to them asking that they only buy their supplies from Butch? Forgive me for asking so many questions but I cant help it, the answers are just too funny!!!!

Butch will get rid of Slick Rick. He also wants to do away with the corporate counsel position and wants to have a law firm on retainer instead. Then, if there is a need for corporate counsel he can get a specialized attorney within the firm. That will be a significant savings to the city.

The City done that for many years until the Council did away with the City attorney position, the out side legal fees were out of control. They created the position of corporate counsel and by doing so the save around $ 200,000.00 the first year alone. Now the city is paying more for the attorney they have and they are still using a great deal of outside lawyers whice are getting the city back to the point they are spending 3 or 400,000.00 for legal fees.

I can not say that I agree with your just letting Butch have it because Billy has not done a good job.What concerns me is that several people have posted as to give Butch a chance but not ONE person to this date can give any form of qualification that Butch has.After repeated challenges to have anyone just say what has he done the last 20 years as far as employment,management or anything that would give me a reason to give him a chance.But the only thing they will say is well he is a nice guy.So I am under the belief that Butch has no qualifications and has absolutely no experience what so ever in any form. If you feel I am wrong convince me!!!

Hello, Earth to dumbazz, I have no problem with you hating on the Mayor or his corporate council, but this topix is about Butch and whether or not he has anything to give to the Mayoral election,What are his qualifications or history that would warrant me to vote for him. if you want to address that issue then fine, if you want to continue your hate crimes(for lack of a better word) against the other 2 then please start your own F ing topix on that. NOW CAN ANYONE RESPOND TO THE TOPIX AT HAND???

I guess the lack of response's answers the question at hand.

Is it true Butch plans to eliminate 10 city positions in order to reduce payroll and benefits? I heard he said that it would save the city enough to fund his new community center.
