McGrath For Mayor

Gouverneur, NY

#1 Sep 30, 2011
Bill Nelson can't hold a candle to Jack McGrath. Bill has no education, he does not know how to run a corporation. If the city was being run as a corporation with Bill as the CEO it would be filing for bankruptcy. Its time for Bill to step aside and lets get some new ideas in City Hall. It is obvious to me that in the past three terms as mayor, Mr. Nelsons ideas have run out. Time to move on Bill.

Oops! How can Jack-off run the city if he could not run Oscars? Seems he could not keep his pepperoni on the pizza. Instead he put it in the bartender. Fuxking hypocrite! Go back to running your CEO bullshit up your hershey highway bub. You want to come on Topix and talk smack? Get ready loser! Good bye Uncle Artie!

@ MeowHissHiss: Show me what Mayor Nelson has done in his 12 years as Mayor? Jobs??? Crime Rate??? Please show me one example of Bills leadership ability, other than to lead himself right out of town to live in Lisbon. He a clueless uneducated mayor that has stated in the watertown times We didnt have a council meeting, but we had to get this thing rolling, said Mr. Nelson.I had to make a decision, and Id do it again if it came down to it. I was in violation of the charter, but someone had to take charge" so apparently Mayor Nelson can thumb his nose at the City Charter. Maybe he should resign. He is not a dictator, he does not have any authority as mayor to ask city employees to resign. But I guess the city charter doesn't apply to Bill, nor does the oath that he swore as mayor to uphold the charter.

Stop bashing the Mayor and start telling me why the voters should endorse McGrath. Where does he live? What is his character? Convince me as to why I should consider Jack?

Takes a temporary leave from the wife and kiddies to pursue his erection run at politics?

I like Bill for one reason. He has hair. Simple. Us pirates need hair to look good. Ayy matie!

Jack's best credential is simply that he is not Bill Nelson, and Bill is such a good parent and family man himself.

Well there you go. Keeping it simple. Based on that alone I guess the voters have only one choice. Thank you.

Not for nothing, I have no issue with Mayor Nelson, he has done a great job so far as mayor, and I would be sad to see him go, but how long can one person be mayor?? Maybe its time for term limits like the President has.

lets talk about bill and the cover ups, heres one for you. lets ask bill why when the city of ogdensburg was getting sued about 4yrs ago did he agree to move the court action to franklin county and hire out of town attorneys instead of using our city attorney at the tax payers expense? my guess is the city council didn't want the people of ogdensburg knowing that the city was being sued and want to protect certain people that were involed what would be your guess?

Imagine if you will both Jack and Bill standing at the top of City Hall steps. They are both naked. Who would you vote for?

Seriously?

What makes me laugh is that you would even consider voting for Jack.. A bar owner, who couldn't keep his business open, with earrings as your mayor? Can you imagine someone like that running your city, he doesn't even look like he cares!

And just in case you didn't know Bill owns a house on Lafayette Street, he lives there so get your facts straight.

Bill may not be perfect but he's done a hell of a job with that he's had. Lower Taxes, Brought in over 600 jobs, and saved over 1500 at the prisons.. You tell me he's not doing a good job, I tell you you're fucking wrong. Don't even get me going on what he's done for our waterfront. Bill Nelson has the experience and the connections to keep this city going in the right direction..

Crime? Check CIA FACTBOOK.. Under Nelson we've had REDUCED CRIME RATES.. Do your homework before you post slanderous bullshit.

When you can give me proof of your slander i'll believe you, until then i'll call you liar.. You seem to post very SIMILAR to THE WATCHER(One of the most slanderous people ever on Oburg Topix).. Now that's COMICAL!

I don't know about anyone else but as far as taxes go ours were 4 times higher this year from last. That's quite a jump.Still trying to get answers on why. I realize this is not controlled by the mayor but wanted to mention it since ''lower taxes'' was brought up.

Once a popular place, until Reality hit hard. Factory jobs vanished and we welcomed into our community the prisons. Great for the economy but hardly a draw for tourism.

Sex offenders Unit at SLPC. Great for the Local economy, again hardly a draw for tourism. Get real people Ogdensburg is what it is. Small town USA. Although a city in status our primary industry is prisons, mental health facilities and cancer treatment centers.

When are the politicians going to stop thinking only about their Perception and start thinking about the Deceptions they try to fool the taxpayers with? When?

Politics. Same as it ever was.

look, instead of bashing people, if you do not support a certain candidate, do not vote for him or have some guts and run for office instead of hiding on this nonsense piece of trash.

Slander and lies, that's all I see.. As usual. Show me the proof he doesn't live in the city and i'll believe you.. His girlfriend lives in the city, seems like you don't have your facts straight yet again.. He camps at Lisbon Beach during the summer months, didn't know that was illegal! You must be confusing reality with your slanderous lies.

Ogdensburg once a popular place? When in the 60's/70's? This place has been dead since Urban Renewal and the Seaway dried up.. All of which HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH BILL NELSON.. Since he took office he's created over 600 jobs for the Ogdensburg Area, he kept the city out of debt during this economic crisis, and he's been working on waterfront renewal.. You realize all these things take time? And he's lived up to EVERY campaign promise he's ever made.. When you can prove me wrong on any of the aforementioned subjects i'll believe you.. Until then i'm calling you a bullshit slanderous liar!

Bill is a respected politician locally and state wide. He was asked on many occasions to run for New York State Senate, he kindly declined as he truly cares about this city.. For you to say otherwise is ridiculous. People like the above posters are what make people not want to come to Ogdensburg anymore, slanderous liars who prefer to look at the bad instead of the good..

Now that's COMICAL.
