Spunk? Why don't you talk to me before judging me. I challange you. I will be at the slice of Summer but be advised that you might run out of ideas in a debate with me and then will get angry. In My 49 YEARS traveling this country from one end to the other. One thing I do Know is people.
If its my experience in questio of to get things done, This page is not long enought, But I have managed $65,000.000.00 construction budgets. I am out there to demand that every employee do there job as proffesionals consistant with my city plan, Or their gone. Have you ever Run a buget that big and meet dead lines from the US Government. Am I suppose to hold hands and sing cume by ya with the deadbeats in the City government, not. Fine Vote for Polilitical Hack. That is your right. If you only new my qualifications(there isn no time sir) you would vote for because I am tough. Spunky more like a pit bully on steriods. You got GUTS to debate face to face. I really don't think so.
No nonsens NO BS truth. FYI, your user name is from my reply to your post the other day. Your the guy From Mpls who knows whats best for our city. Thanks "Homer" If your going to play posting games try to be more original with post name. Its obvious. I was going to ban you from this board because of your abusive comment about North Saint Paul and how insignificant we are.
Ok now complain about my spelling again and again how I should act like an editor. Please stop. You are "Homer" posts are easy to check I have blog tools you don't now about stop playing chidish games- got guts Call me. You saw my wesite.
I would not vot for you. You cant vote here nice try though.
Alrightythen is right: You come off as a nut job. While people can't vote on this board, their comments (and yours) can swing votes.

It might be better for you if you didn't post. You do yourself no favors -- Your challenges to "Homer" sound menacing and more than a little crazy. Furthermore, you know people judge character by spelling and grammatical errors because you started by telling people not to judge you by that. But, I think most of us would agree being functionally literate should be a requirement for a city leader. Whether you've managed a $65mil project or not, I would wonder whether you could write laws for the city, or represent the city at a regional mayors conference, or send a letter on city letterhead that wouldn't be an embarrassment.

And, while you're not expected to hold hands and sing Kumbaya (I'm assuming that's what you were talking about) you do need to know how to work with, compromise and respect others. Don't see that anywhere in your posts. Bullying and infighting among elected officials accomplishes nothing. Look at Maplewood.

Al, If you want even a sliver of a chance to be elected, you'd be best to stop posting comments/responses, because the average citizen is interpretating them as "a bit out there". Not that's there anything wrong with that. I was trying to be kind in my previous post and let people know there is some truth in what you say about the current NSP administration. I refrained from saying you are a nut case because it would have been rude. May I suggest you get a new "blog tool", because not only am I not Homer, I can and will be voting in this election.
I don't play politics, My campaing inspite of your abiltiy to think i am to out there. What the hell does that mean. You want silly little platitueds and promises. I Forgot more than you know on your best day. I will run it like business
repleate with a Vision, Mission, Resposnibilities and a core value. I will walk foot prints on anyone who gets in my way of making REAL honest change FREE of Favors and political Sweetness pleasentries, Those days are over. Why are you not running big mouth, Ya I SAID BIG MOUTH. IF you don Liver here have an opinion or shut the hell up or is that not politically correct for you. I have made serveral challanges to you and you fail to take offer. Not man or woman enought to debate vigerously. FOR YOU THIS IS MY POLITICAL MONTRA. "I AM NOT CALLED TO OFFICE TO BE POPULAR...BUT TO BE FAITHFUL TO DELIVER MY PROMISES TO THE COMMUNITY. North Saint Paul may be small but it has the heart of lion. What are you made of Cotton Candy, Sir? I answer to a higer calling. I put my faith In God almighty or should I not say that because your a ill minded liberal. This page means nothing overal and I thing your actual STUPID. So keep responding so I can rebut you Cinisism. Sliber of Chance?? what are you Carl Rove? what a nit wit I have Campaign money flowing in every day. You just want blobiate and be and ASS. ooops did I offend you?
Trying to be kind? if had a clue on who I am, but of course your just an anonomous post. You might just be believable. I gave you my name, address and phone number and yet you won't call. Why because, I told you I now who you are and trust me when the time is right. I will reveal who you really are. Other than a liar and a phony poster.

If you have any balls come up with some ideas and confront me, but I suspect you are from the far loney left. Please drink the coola aid it will end your pain. You don't have any ideas. You want to hide behind your not so anonimous usernames. Have it. I expect this from mentally ill people. I will not reply to any comments that do not have ligitiment city concerns. I just wanted to find out what your made out of. You picked a bad week to quit smoking crack.

Why are taxes $3,000 for a $250,000 house and only $1,400 on the same value house in Lake Elmo?

Does this concern you? What will you do to adress this?

These HIGH taxes would pay for 1/2 of my gas bill!!

Are you abishop going to address this? HOW?

Out of 10 potential mayors, we are beginning to see that one of them has true passion. Unfortunately he also has demonstrated that he seriously lacks communications skills. Moreover, he seems to make wild assumptions based on paranoid suspicions, and has no control of his temper. That's a nice combination of mayoral attributes. Ding, ding! Here come the nut wagon!

Another odd thing one of your retired cops with the Br told me you live near hudson, HMMM...
NSPD hires pervert police officers like brudinski who peaks in the showers and watches little girls nude at the oomunity center. He got off pretty easy.. Probation and like 75.00 fine. Anyone else would have been in the kinker for a year.

Of the ten running which is your pick, based on what?

I ask because it would be good to hear from someone with knowledge of the candidates.

I know Danner isn't worth a vote, Kuehn and Waslack are known loosers Peterson is and has always been active in the city. The others are long shots, unknowns. I was looking for Jean Wolf to throw her hat in for the job because she darn near beat Sandberg in an election, I know Jean is a person of integrity but not running.

I agree with your comments on an employee getting favors from the city he works for, if that isn't a conflict of interest NOTHING IS!!

Seems to be the guy your talking about must have been the guy that built 2 houses on 16th?

In any case who is your choice??

Bill Sandberg the person possessed quick wit, charm, and was a good man. I respected and enjoyed him. However, Bill Sandberg the Mayor, lost his appeal to a vast majority of residents 4 or more re-elections ago. He stayed at the party too long and in the process forgot why he had come in the first place. He no longer worked for the people of this city. Our voices were just a distraction because the result of agenda items were already decided upon prior to any Council Meeting. It was those employeed by the city who's desires and decisions took precident. One particular employee, seems to of been granted so many privileges that if not illegal, certainly unethical. City condemns property, this employee is the winning bidder. City buys up property for Hwy 36 project, this employee suddenly is the owner and rents out parking for the construction equipment to the contractors on the Hwy 36 project. The list is endless. Why is all of this important? Two words -Jan Walczak. A vote for Jan is a perpetuation of city employees cutting deals to benefit themselves. A vote for Jan is a continuation of someone who has stayed at the party just a little too long. Remember who rode down Hwy 36 in that open convertible when Hwy 36 was reopened, the two waving to air and taking glory in themselves as the frustrated vehicles behind them finally zoomed past them with a wave of their own involving the middle finger; Bill Sandberg & Jan Walczak.

You have physically threatened others, used obscenities, suggested one poster should "drink the coolaid" (kill himself) and you suggest you are seeking God's will? Seeking it, maybe, but obviously not living it.

Do be to sure of yourself. Mr. anonymous. 5 people on an obscure post does not affect anthing.

ALBERT EIENSTIEN WAS OF THE WORST SPELLERS IN HIS CLASS.

FURHTERMORE, THERE IS FINE LINE BETWEEN BEING A NUT JOB OR CRAZY AND BEING A GENIUS.

IN THE NEW TESTIMENT THE JEWISH LEADERS THOUGHT JESUS WAS BESIDE HIM SELF.(CRAZY)

XD40 Mad by Spirngfield Arms IS an EXTREMELY reliable handgun used by police departments. This post is probably one of my fans in the NSP PD right TL. I notice you reported and had thread pulled. Am I getting a little close to the truth? only the parts about you were removed on a Chief could pull that off. Sorry.
