Why does the Beggs Mayor Ricky Mitchell take his Okmulgee Fire Chief $50,000 SUV and Okmulgee fuel to Beggs fires and wrecks? Shouldn't he have to take his own PERSONAL vehicle to our fire station and get a truck and go? This happens during the day while he's in Okmulgee and at night.

Maybe because Beggs IS Okmulgee county? I'm just saying....

Oh, one more thing. I dont know if he really does what you are accusing him of, but I do hope however, that if you house is ever on fire, you don't want the "help" to be slowed down so he can switch trucks!! I would want them to hurry up and get there!

AND.....if you live in Beggs, and not in Okmulgee, why in the heck are you worried about it in the first place?!

Rick Mitchell doesn't work for Okmulgee County, he works for the City of Okmulgee. I'm just saying. Secondly, yes I live in Beggs. That's how I see him coming to our accidents in Okmulgee's vehicle. I'm speaking budget wise and the law, not personally. I do hope that if I have any type of accident will come even though Ricky has ran off our whole volunteer department and it's not because of jealousy. 30+ men do not leave all of a sudden because they are jealous.

Oh yes they do. Jealousy is what it's all about. If you work and do a good job the rest of the volunteer power plant workers go nuclear every time and sometimes they don't go anywhere. Where is Ballard in all of this stuff. He's the one furnishing all the beer and levity in town.

Ron and Rick have always considered it their civic duty to do whatever they could to improve the city and county. How about giving them a helping hand and a little encouragement. By the way, I think their sure be an ordinance requiring men to wear socks. It looks downright tacky.

Well if you are corky, unless you are a complete idiot you should know that are so called Mayor disabays the law on a consistent basis. He Has drawn pay for work from Beggs as Mayor and AS Fire chief of Okmulgee-and its impossible to be at both places during the day. He uses city equipment for his own personal use every day. He parked his boat in the fire house with fire equipment parked outside all summer during 2010. So what kind of city councilman were you allowing this to happenwhen your job was to be a rpresentative of the people in
Beggs. You failed miserably and just want to blow your own horn.. Obviously you are just some do nothing that whats to bragg he is a city council man or rather was. Beggs is a separate city from Okmulgee. We should not be taxed to support them or they us. So either try to correct the crap you help create by being a groupie or hide in your hole..You don't have what it takes to do anything about corruption and eveidently must be too stupid or cowardly to say anything. Just hide and forget the law and say I know him and he's a good ole boy just wonderful the way he screws the people to his own advantage.

This is not about Ballard. If he wants to drink let him. He has paid the price and is out of office. As long as he stays off the road when he is drinking its not our problem. He is not using the equipment we pay for as taxpayers for his own purposes, nor has he taken pay for supposedly doing two jobs which is impossible..This is against the law, period. So lets be fair and put him out on the street and get some one that will be the Beggs Mayor and actually do the job. My bill from the city has doubled in the last year. I think if we had someone there in city hall during the time they are supposed to be this would not have happened. I want to puke every time I get an automated telephone message from "Rick Mitchell the Mayor advising me of a city event. Isn't this an expense the city is paying to promote "Rick Mitchell" the Mayor. Other,s including you should object this sick self promotion.

Maybe because if th "so called Mayor" was on the job in Beggs the response would be quicker and more effective. And also if he was full filling his function as Mayor of Beggs we would have some volunteers, all who have left because of his in-effective leadership. Maybe you should be objective and look at what is really happening and not the fact that personalities are involved.

They are planning on publishing a "what happened to him" story, it should be entertaining....And there is enough people out there who will see that he gets all the attention available pretty soon.

This is all about Ballard getting off the hook on a felony charge. It is our business anytime we see justice for one is not justice for a good ole boy. Ballard's drinking is your problem as well as his. Whenhe runs over your child or dog in his pickup truck you wioll realize just how much his drinking is your business. No telling how many cats and dogs he has run over late at night, and in those secret meetings with O.G. Thompson sailing around in Rick's boat.

Demon Hunter is full of you know what..? Rick Mitchell is the most honest, upstanding, loyal, workaholic for the people with the most honesty in office that this county has ever known. The City Council in both towns with the exception of Mr. Ballard loves and worships the ground he walks on. Ballard is jealous of him and Rick does not drink. Having a sobre Mayor is quite the change for Beggs.

Rick Mitchell would never knowingly violate the law. For the first time I agree with the Demon Hunter and The Truth in saying that yes the whole County knows that Ron Ballard has both a pill problem as well as an alcohol problem. His X lover was busted for drugs before Ron took her out on Rick's boat at Okmulgee Lake. Rick has always been good to Ballard. Only heaven knows why Ballard is out to get Rick Mitchell's head. God save the Queen and Corky Thompson for Ron Ballard.

Nice try Beggs Citizen/Mayor. You know I meant the good Mayor is a pill head. Look at his eyes. They're bloodshot and he has the shakes. Probably from being so sleepy from setting houses on fire in Beggs and then "saving" them by himself just in time for Fox23 to record the heroism. He saved 10 people, BY HIMSELF, during the floods. Just ask him. He'd love to tell you the story.

Mitchell is the county joke and is laughted at at other professional fire departments. He tells little girls that he is an undeercover agent to impress them and probably believes it himself now. I have talked to OSBI - he never worked undercover or anything else with them as he claims. He will be walking around Beggs soon saying "remember me, I was Rick Mitchell undercover agent" unfortunately this will be to teenagers who will laugh uncontrollable at him.
