I see the signs popping up. To the life of me I can't see how anyone would think Bob would be good in office. I take it you may not be from Newport and don't know Bob. Maybe you think that change is good. While I have to agree we need change, we don't need Bob. He rubbed many people wrong when he was a police officer and later sat at a desk on the tit of our tax dollars paying him while he did nothing. He wants to be a commissioner? When was the last time anyone seen him involved with Newport politics or getting out in the city at all? I have known Bob since he was a beat cop. After he got off the streets over 20 years ago I may have seen him one time and that was at a store in Cold Spring. We need people that care about the city, not to get into office because they have a chip on their shoulder. While most of the Commission needs to stop turning their heads the other way when problems keep happening from within, bringing Bob into the mix will make it 10 times worse. These are my feeling alone and not meant to stir the pot too much but then what do I know? I have been told I was nothing more than a typical Newport thug. Thug or not he's not getting my vote.

Anyone know if there's going to be a candidates' night anywhere, anytime soon? It would be fun to hear what Bob's got to lie about, I mean SAY about himself.

I have know Bob for over thirty years, he is a fine outstanding individual who has devoted his entire life to serving Newport and its citizenry. Personally, I don't know anybody else that would do a better job as commissioner

The only people I've ever heard refer to Bob as an "outstanding individual" are either his drinking buddies, or people he's made empty promises to. He never devoted his life to anything that didn't line his pockets or cover up his reputation as a miserable prick.

The only reason he wants to become a commissioner is to be paid back for all the years he was sucking up to various Npt commissoners while trying to keep/advance his positions on the Police Dept. He think everyone owes him.
Bob is good

He has been the SWAT commander; Criminal Investigations commander, Administrative Lt. Col. What has he done that is different from what others at Newport have done?

Maybe because he has stood up for himself and his men.

Maybe you are afraid of a smart african-american?

What you failed to mention was that he was a miserable failure at all of those things. In actuality, he was a poor leader, an ineffective supervisor and had to demand respect rather than earn it.

What does the color of his skin have to do with anything? Maybe that is why you want him on the Commission? It doesn't matter to me if he black, blue, pink or purple. My thoughts and reasons for not wanting him in there is he's not fit to be there. Only place I see him fitting in is in a bar, swapping lies with the rest of the drunks.

It's completely obvious that McCray and Stoeklin have very personal agendas for running for office. McCray has a grudge against Fromme and Stoeklin is pissed because he built his house across the street from a scrap yard and doesn't like the noise. How do these yahoos benefit the rest of us??? I'll be the first one to say that I'd like to see the commission AND Fromme wiped out, but I'm not going to do it by voting for 2 idiots.
He is supposed to

They call that subjectivity. Of course he should have goals and want to influence them to fruition. That is what we hire them for, whether it is him or another. Man, did you just wake up or pull your head out from under a rock? Fromme is a completly differ person and Bob can think for himself. And don't vote, that's the way to be democratic and participate in the process. No wait! lets get on topix and just bash everyone for everything, that will change things I am sure. What a nut job!
Whatever

Where did you get the idea that I don't vote? What I said was, I won't vote for McCray or Stoecklin. Influence to fruition?? That sounds like "lie to get votes" to me.
Sounds like

It's called having goals or an agenda; which ever you prefer to call it. Opinion is not a lie, just my feeling on the topic. So far you have called people idiots and liars to make whatever point you are trying to portray. Stick to facts not name calling. You might even make a point beyond I hate him, I hate this, they are idiots. Grow up and smart'en up. This is an adult world junior.

Shouldn't an agenda be more like, "Here's what I'm going to do for all of Newport" rather than "Here's what I'm going to do for myself" when I'm elected?

Good evening Mr. Whatever. My name is Jeni, yes I have no fear of voicing my opinions and putting my name to them. Either does my Uncle Jack Stoecklin. Now you can make uneducated anonymous comments about Jack, or you can come out from behind the curtain and contact him to get the facts. The email is on his website and he would be thrilled to assist you by answering your questions, and concerns about where your city is going. Give it a shot, I find actual face to face time much more valuable than rambling, anonymous comments on a discussion board. On this flip side, every politician has haters. Peace out! Jennifer Wilkins

Oh, and feel free to call me names, that crap never bothered a woman like me, nor will it disturb my Uncle. I wish you the best in your voting decisions!

Thank you. I've always been the best at making my own voting decisions.
