So much focus has been put on the mayoral race, but what about the alderman?

The only Alderman that I know is Karl Chambless, and he has been doing a great job, but he has been fighting against Evans and Powers, they are the former supporters of our convicted felons, Mayor, Mullins, and his also convicted felon, his former Chief of Police, Tisdale. before Scott Ferguson won the election, and that's when Oakland turned for better.
I know Evans, and he would be bad for our town. He is in this for what he can get out of it. He and Mullins are still seen meeting at the Ozone, Evans home, and other places. It would be just like the convicted felon Mullins, still in the Mayors chair. Evans and Powers were the yes people that always voted with Mullins, and of course Mullins always voted and broke the tie for what he wanted.
Now that the shoe is on the other foot, Evans and Powers are stating that Ferguson has been doing wrong, but they never raised hell when it was going there way with Mullins breaking the tie for what he wanted. But the difference is that when Mullins was doing it, it was all for himself. When Ferguson does it, it for the betterment of our town. I heard that Powers is not running again. Thank God.
The others running for the other three (3) Alderman's position I don't know much about them, so that God for Google. But that is just my thoughts, and my position on the Election. You will hear a lot from now to Election time from Mullins friends, but you will just have to make up your own mind, so I will just bid you a good farewell, and pray that God helps us in our time of need.

I was wondering how I could get one of Maggie's old campaign signs for my yard. One of those with her picture.
I put one up last Halloween and it frightened candy seeking children away from my door.
I also put one in my flower bed and it scared off the dogs and cats, who used to relieve themselves in my yard!
If you modify them, a couple holes, or trim here and there, they also make great fright masks!
A warning however, is to not expose them to the clocks in your house. They tend to stop them.

"Ferguson won the election, and that's when Oakland turned for better."
Please tell me what is better.... There is not one single thing I can think of that Scott Ferguson has done for this town. Please enlighten me.
I don't care if you hated Mullins, but he at least turned this please into what it is today. I'll bet 70% of the people reading this came here from Memphis! And why did you come??? Because it was a good place. No crime, super low property taxes, and new businesses opening.
I have seen no new businesses come to Oakland in the past 4 years....none worth mentioning anyway. Don't get me wrong, I don't want another Memphis, but growth is not a bad thing. Hell, just look at that sexy ass rotten firewood lot on the corner of 196 and 64 (That's between McDonald's and Kroger for you people that don't understand numbers so well.)
So what has Scott done?

In the first place this thread title says "Alderman" not Mayor, so you must be an dammed idiot for not following the thread topic.
Secondly, some free advice: Stay away from your sister and any and all, farms animals. One of you is enough!!
Thirdly, Westertn State nuthouse is up the road a piece in Bolivar. Keep walking east bound.(I sure pray you don't drive an automobile!)

Don't VOTE for any of the Alderman canidates that have the SIGNS with the STARS across the top they are all part of an effort by Redditt to build a Political Machine in Oakland. Redditt also has the STARS across the top of his signs. All SIGNS are paid for by a PAC that Redditt controls an he hopes to have total control of Oakland

You are one of many!
Some of these people have no platform to offer, other than change for the sake of changing.
They offer to bring in new jobs but have no clue or will not state from where.
They offer a new park for people to sit around and watch the ducks, or some other mundane activity, but cannot say where the money will come from. You'd think people would be looking for a better job, or trying to put in a new business, instead of sitting around some fishing hole staring at their fellow guppies.
They offer to work for better schools for Oakland, yet have never even been inside one of them, nor attended a board meeting. I will go further and say they have no children in the Fayette County/Oakland School System!
Not one of them has offered to explain when, how and where they will begin to improve the infrastructure of Oakalnd.
(For some of you sheep this means road repairs, sewer improvements, street lights, weed cutting, etc.)
Not one of them will commit to term limits.
Not one of them will sign a no tax increase pledge.
6 of them refuse to answer the question: "Have you ever been arrested, or filed for bankruptcy?"
I could go on but as far as the incumbants...you have had more than enough time to do something, but have waited 4 years or more to tell us what you are going to do.
I'll take a page from Mr. Eastwood and let you candidates know what you can go do, however, it is physically impossible for you to do to yourself sexually!
Some of these people couldn't run a freight train off a cliff much less run a government/business/home.
AREN'T YOU SHEEP TIRED OF THIS?
