The current city manager was a no show for the swearing in of new council members this past Monday and the first council meeting on Tuesday. And the agenda did not include a City Managers Report either. Talk about a sore loser!

All of his buddies are now receiving "lip training". LOL You know for kissing destinations unknown. LOL

And where is lizard breath; Really in Henryetta; and other Eldridge supporters who advocated stories about Eldridge were nothing but lies? That he was the saviour for Henryetta's ills that he brought with him.

Apparently the Manager hasn't done too bad of a job...he is still there. From looking at the laundry lists of previous posts there was a group that was sure he was gonna be gone. Looks like they lost their courage or maybe everything wasn't as bad as they perceived.

LOL Very funny! Obviously you are not "with it" as to the process. Be at the special meeting this coming Thursday 5:00PM @ city hall- it is especially for Raymond. LOL

And it wasn't a group; it was the citizens of Henryetta who wanted this cancer out of our midst. Since the election, we haven't seen Dickey, Duke, Jessuit, or the other scum bags. Wonder why? No crumbs for them to thrive on.

Your statement greatly exhibits your ignorance; or is it you are an Eldridge fan? Either way, you can't possibly be a standup citizen for reform or you wouldn't have made such a stupid statement.

You can't see the streets, etc. If you are blind you are forgiven. If not, get real.

Also Eldridge has not been to the office since the election; something called "stressed out" is upon him. He knows his days are numbered and that the process of terminating him is in motion. LOL HE GONE!!! The vote will be 4-1!

Actually Im not blind nor am I a resident. I just have enjoyed following the whole ordeal and the flaming posts between both sides. Haven't seen any in awhile so..I tossed some bait out to see where everything was and I got my answer. If the change causes your town to be a better place, then more power to you and the citizens.

LOL The flaming posts came primarily from the Police Chief and some of his policemen; the City Manager and some of his family and employees (via neptoism); the Fire Chief and some of the firemen; and others looking to save their jobs. All of the above will be removed in time starting this Thursday at 5:00 pm at city hall. Others will follow.

The city will become a better place without a doubt.

once again, the many faces of Buck. I wish you could spend a day in the living hell of a life you have created for so many people in this town and then see where your stress level would be. The former council had the power at any time to change the city manager's status and chose not to. Guess it was just easier to point fingers and accuse. I think this council may have some surprises up their sleeves that you won't be so happy with.

Once again, piss off! All of you brought it on yourself. You will be looking for jobs - SOON - each one of you starting with Eldridge!

And the living hell statement was at each of your own hands; no one else! The termination families lived in a "fake economic glass house" that will now come down. They were cocky for a few years throwing their weight around while they controlled their destiny. The city was sick of it. All the nice toys will go away; those fired will no longer be a part of the community; their kids will see the change; most will have to move for employment.

Some will be prosecuted beyond terminations (like you)having to hire attorneys putting more pressure on their life style.

You reference the former council was OK with Eldridge as CM - not so 2 weren't (3 were)and was one vote away from terminating the city manager; tried and failed; and that's why the three aren't there today. A well known fact. The termination will be corrected this Thursday at 6:30 pm. LMAO

What happens after that is OK with all voters - As long as Eldrige and four others are fired, the city will be free of the corruption and move forward.

Raymond Eldridge is the most honest person in this town. So why dont you old farts that dont have a clue kiss off. And when you miss a meeting for being drunk or a family emegency we are all going to hold it against you also. Raymond will come out on top. And it is funny to me that noone wanted Raymond in there after he started running the city like a city and not good ol boy town. And now you dumb asses want to raise everyones taxes by letting go firefighters and give yourselfs a bigger pay.lol What a joke you people are. And still no balls to put your names up priceless.

Amen Sister! What kind of people are they that don't care about peoples lives. If they get their wish and fire all of the police and all of the firemen, who will keep the town safe? Who will come when they are driving drunk and hit a family that happened to be between them and the liquor store? Who will put out their house fire when their meds kicked in and they forgot they were cooking? Too bad these loud mouths don't have a brain in their heads.

Raymond resigned as volunteer City Manager now maybe certain people can stop harrassing him and spreading rumors. Raymond is one of the most honest people I know and when the new people realize what he has actually done for this city maybe they will too. Good luck Henryetta. Oh and why in the world would they appoint Donna as City Manager and give her I think they said about $4200. a month to do a job that Raymond done for free but wait for it she is the one that started all the rumors that Raymond gave himself a raise, I guess she set out with the intention on getting that position.Oh and she is the treasure now aint that scary she cant even do basic math, maybe her books need to be audited.I think she needs to be fired and Coe needs to go to jail, Dombek needs to go to rehab, maybe Koelzer, Goodner and Classen can get the job done they seems like they are the only ones with commen sense.

City employee w a voice? how bout a name? What has Raymond actually done for this city that the "new people" don't already know? and it sure isn't looking "honest" to say the least. Or was it that joke of a water source that he keeps taking credit for? Donna should be paid the same amount that Raymond has paid himself for doing the same job. More like the 60K he's drawing for the fictious "fire marshal" postition that he created just for himself. So nothing "free" about that. And there were no RUMORS about the pay raise, that's a FACT. Its reflected in the council meeting minutes. Donna wouldn't be in her position if she wasn't more than capable,if you really are a city employee you would know the city does have auditors. Oh, and I'm assuming when you say "Coe" your referring to Mr.Cole? He was cleared of any wrong doing several years ago, that's on record too. I guess spelling isn't a requirement to be a city employee. What Mr Dombek does on his own time would be of no concern to you, he has no probem making decisions that are best for Henryetta. The only thing you have correct is that Koelzer & Goodner have the common sense AND education to get the job done (along with Dombek & Cole)

Was he the most honest person in this town when he was cheating on your sister? Well at least he told her that he was having an affair before he had to get on the witness stand and say it at a murder trial huh?

lol..really?? when was this city ever run "like a city" under raymond's management? how could he when he was never in his office? having calls screened so he didn't have to do his job, having other employees lie and say he wasn't in when someone had a problem to discuss. people are fully aware of how he managed the city, thats why they got out and voted this time, to show it's time to stop the free ride. he has his family trying to convince citizens and city employees that the new council is planning to do away with fire fighter positions. why keep everyone upset over such lies? i hope the firefighters will make an effort to get to know the council and find out for themselves they aren't the enemy like they're being portrayed. So who's going to get they bigger pay? He's the only one who got a big raise. I think his sister in law has been listening to raymond for way too long. You can't blame her for defending her family though.

Oh yes Mr Honesty. Im sure Mrs Eldridge would love to know about the many affairs her husband has had. For example on of the many fire training trips he went in while fire chief he actually too a woman with him to Talaquah to stay in the motel so he could have some hanky panky while not in class. And this is just one of many occasions.
