"Conflict of interest going down to the wire". Just do the right thing Chris! You have got to be hurting your reputation and zimmerly's!

This should no longer be an issue. Patrick should resign for the good of Edgar County. I never knew he could be this stubborn. Why in the world would a businessman take this stand.
I believe a petition should be circulated to take him out of office. If that can't be done then everyone should
boycott Zimmerly's!
Get serious Patrick for we the citizens are!
In case anyone is wondering, I am not connected with the
watchdogs of their trashy paper.

Hes getting railroaded...something isn't right with this. I thought the ike grants or whatever were suspended too but the beacon said that brocton' road was closed and things were going ahead...so that was a total fabrication that those grants were held up because of him. Resignations and boycots are watchdog talk...they have it out for him and they are spreading misinformation.

Lots or wrong info floating around... according to the article the idot spokesman wouldn't say either way...if it was as clear cut as its being made out to be, then the idot rep would have been able to give more info. It would have been settled by now if it was a blatant conflict. It appears as if opinions are running the program right now...i think i'll just wait for the legal experts to make a determination. Conflict of interest has definite legal parameters...its not as blanketing as the edgar county watchdogs make it out to be.

well the watchdogs were wrong again when they said the ike grants were held up...those buffoon mayors were just listening to what the watchdogs were telling them...its a case of the misinformed informing the misinformed and reaching a general state of misinformness. lol

I don't know about their website...kirk allen stated it at a county meeting. Then the mayor of metcalf admitted she heard it from the mayor of brocton and he admitted getting his info from the watchdogs...I don't think i would rely on that website solely for all my info...there are other sources for less biased info...that website is very lopsided...one look at it shows this.

Why would they put him in that job anyway,knowing the business he is in. One thing is for sure we need all new leadership in this county.It is hard to believe that the citizens of Edgar County that are hard working tax payers would condone all this crap.

So if I understand you correctly: we don't want someone who has successfully owned and run a business to help guide our county? We are much better off having people calling the shots that have only worked for other people? I don't think you could be more clueless. Thank god you aren't calling the shots. I'd definitely keep listening to the unemployed janitor and the volunteer fireman...they must know way more than a successful business guy.

They Don't condone it!

Find a coffee shop that isn't talking about it with disgust for all of them and their actions.

I think people are waking up and realizing the cronies day of control over all of this town and its business is coming to an end.

Thank God!
