Lemuel Hester, an ex cop, 11 veteran of Internal Affairs and "professional" investigations, made his comments know at the meeting last night. After he schooled the council on what qualifies as a "proper investigation", his comments afterwards really summed it up. had he turned in an "investigation" that looked like that, his supervisors would have sent him to Siberia.

The Mayor and I do not always agree politically; but if there is one thing he is not, it is sexist. I have had dealings with him both as mayor and as the owner of his shop, and never once did I feel he was talking down to me. On the contrary, I felt I had his respect.

The Mayor isn't sexist. He just prefers rational people. As do most of us. Some of you are quite the entertaining lot, however. So please proceed.

You're kidding right? He is one of the more sexist, talk down to women, kind of guys I have seen, he and Moritz are two birds of a feather.

Not kidding at all. Even when we have had a disagreement, he has treated me well. Perhaps it's a matter of approach. I don't go in like Yosemite Sam, guns blazing. That tends to elicit reasonable responses. You should try it sometime.

Don't shift blame. Each is responsible for his own actions. If you ask numerous women you'll be able to verify his tendency to talk down to them. Watch council videos. Observe his short fuse. Maybe the anger management class he had to take needs to be supplemented with a refresher course.

I would agree that the Mayor is not sexist. I, too have dealt with him at his shop and as Mayor and he has treated me very well.

Moritz is the one that has treated me horribly.

I should also probably point out that I am not the stereotypical woman. I tend to prefer working with men. I find them to be much more direct and reasonable, for the most part, than women (though I have a few like-minded women friends - they know who they are).

Maybe that's the reason the mayor has never (to my knowledge) tried to hurt my feelings? Maybe I'm just not that sensitive, but I have found him to be very, very reasonable. Very logical. Very diplomatic (particularly in comparison with the other mayoral candidates). Again, I haven't always agreed with his decisions, but in my personal dealings with him, I have never once felt he was sexist.

And, as a liberal feminist (as in equality, not superiority), believe me - if I detected even a hint of sexism, I'd not hesitate to say so.

You are making some women throw up just a little bit in their mouths.

Boone investigation was a farce ! They couldn't count on the moss vote anymore. They wanted good ol boy butch back in his seat. What an embarrassment and total waste of money !
Those secret little plotting meetings have been going on for years in that auto body shop !
School board, ambulance district, city hall....all plotted and planned. Pee wee making the fortune.

I'm going to say, just because some of you out there don't agree with the Mayor doesn't mean you have to attack him personally.

I know one who has stated that he personally heard from the Mayor that he is only in this for the paycheck to save his business. Well, let's flip the table for a minute. Maybe Poor was only in the billboard so he could use the money to save his business. The Mayor's salary is set in stone. I doubt that it is enough to "save a business". Even then there would have to be some creative accounting for the IRS.

Now you are saying he is sexist. I will say that in none of my dealings with the man has he ever been sexist. He has always been professional and nice and always willing to help.

As far as the council members, GROW UP! Quit the bickering and get down to business. There are more important matters than attacking each other and/or the Mayor so that you can look good for the next election. I will NOT vote for anybody that even looks like they are trying to play games. When you play these games you are playing them with my and every other citizen's tax money.

Concerned Citizen, are you running? Do you live here? Can you even vote in any of these races? The games have been being played for many years, just so happens someone came along that won't play with them. There are rules, they need to be followed, those who have not been following them all these years need to go.
