Attention Mr. Edwards,

We are "In The Know", the newest group monitoring corruption in Hopewell. We know where you live... If you want to be a citizen of Hopewell live hear and keep your seat. If you're gonna fake living hear change up the lights on in the house once a day, flush the toilet 2 or 3 times and run a faucet for about 10 mins a day. If you continue your pursuit for the seat in ward 2 on false pretenses your electric and water usage comparisons from before and now will come to light. You think the citizens of Hopewell are stupid? I think not...

Sounds like you need to get "IN THE KNOW"

Attention Mrs Pisarek,

If you lose the election will your husband file a lawsuit against the city again? We know why you decided to run at the request of the "Golden Boy". One more question was that lady on Pickett St. a Steve Nugent Supporter?

Just helping you get "IN THE KNOW"

Sounds like the GOBs are trying to scare the non-surfs off. Gee, why would the GOBs be scared of someone running for council? Could it be that these people can't be bought? You betchya. NOW we know who to vote for.

GOBs that's funny I don't quite fit their standards... And the GOBs got Pisarek to run in the 1st place and as far as Roosevelt didn't say he was a bad guy just the qualification is to "live" in the district... Where that is concerned right is right and in other words I think if Wanda loses there prob would be a lawsuit ol Danny Boy knows how to sue the city... She's the only person linked to someone that files more suits then Yolanda Stokes
Is change REALLY coming

Well if she was a supporter Steve would have probally paid for her support. He is using the radio station and his parents buisness to gain all of his votes. He can't run based off experience. The GOB's have him in pocket and he will use the City Council to get his parents resturant to downtown and to promote his buisnesses. He has no plan. He is currently is talks with people on City Council and the GOB's to set up who will be the next Mayor and him as Vice Mayor. Change can't come to Hopewell if City Council is used as a social club for friends-of-friends to benifit! WHAT ABOUT US REGULAR PEOPLE?????? I don't own a buisness, my family don't have personal ties to the GOB's that run this city. Things will never change if we keep letting City Council be a networking social club to push pet projects and help councilors friends and families.

You hit the nail on the head. Look who gets all the contracts around here without notice for bids even going out. Funny, ain't it?

After some research his campaign purchased the airtime on the radio and the spot on the website and the same price and opurtunity is affrded any candidate willing to pay it...
Hello the Commmonwealth Attorney's whipping boy the direct link to the GOB system is the reason Wanda is running.. She didn't decide to run she was asked. You say Steve is using K&L and the radio station to push his agenda? maybe he should just sue somebody or run them over to get the vote... Or i's ok to get GOB support to save your job when the chief is about to let you go? But then downgrade the GOB system when your wifr is running for office... Sounds like we need to post Steve's criminal history against Danny Boy's Internal Police record... and yes there is a copy that escaped We can take this t the front pages any time yall are ready
What a laugh

GOB's are only old men who can't get a hard on so they feel the need to do scare tactics. Oh please !
If any internal records escape the PD, there will be full punishment.
As for Wanda Pisarek, she has the guts to run in this town, good for her. Yes Steve was asked by Mr. Sheriff and Mr Mike Budj. So, has Steve ever wonder why they ask him ???? He knows how this town feels about that group, so people will not support him because of his ties he now has with the Good old Bats ! As far as people resident's better look alittle closer at all gob's think you know it all....that front page can be right interesting for sure !

If you want to know who the Sheriff is supporting you only have to look at the campaign signs in his yard.

Steve was talkin bout running 8 years ago in the window @ K&L... I in no way endorsing either candidate in this one but I don't think it's right to be asking people to put up signs in your police uniform. As a matter of fact I think it's against the law. So as a good citizen a formal complaint will be made with the department. Wanda you want to win it? Win it legally or you just might cost the election and your husband's job.

Does not matter who is elected. Why?
Everybody is just as dumb as the next. There is no real talent in which to choose from.
I have lived here for 70 years. Back in the old days you had business men serve on council. Nowadays its come down to a popularity contest.
No experience needed. Just sign up, buy a lot of signs and hope for the best.
The annual budget for the city of Hopewell is around 120 million a year. Now,,,,,, picture each every person on Council from left to right and ask yourself this.
Which of these people possess the ability and business intellect to allocate $120,000,000 each and every year? You see what I mean?
Now,,,,,,,,, the fact that the do not have this background and experience does not make them dumb.
But seeking the position that will require making these decisions makes them all idiots.

The days of Elmo Parr are over. The ward system doesn't work, because not every ward has the caliber of people to choose from. Plus, in my opinion, everyone in the city should be able to pick the ones to lead the city. The races have gotten into all neighborhoods now, so wards are obsolete. Most of the business people have moved out of town, and the kids never come back to Hopewell, 'cause there is nothing here for them.

All of this dosent matter unless we vote to change hopewell politics. Steve is denying who recurited him to run....mike buj. Councilor currently sitting on council and voted for the beacon and marina....and the sheriff....steves drinking buddy in the anchor room. Wanda is being backed by rick newman.....the man who wants to take money from the city,......edwards is backed by walton and will be vice msyor....neither have a brain or an independant voice......they are puppets and change will not come if we do not make a change..... and vote for new people.....they are getting people in office to push their agendas and what do they promise in return?

And if steve wanted to run 8 years ago.....what happened? He had other chances to run......could it be he thought his parents buisness and name would win the race for him? Or did he have to wait to make deals.....or did he know he couldnt beat stokes???? Why now....esp if uve lived here 20 years and wanted to run for the past 8. People running are in no shape to lead or have the experience, edwards is arrogant for no reason and knows nothing about what he votes on, bout time people called him out.

Steve almost didn't run this time... He was thinking about his family and how it would affect them. Once again every candidate that comes to the radio station has the same opportunities for advertisements. If Wanda or Jasmine came and paid the exact same amount that Steve's campain did they'd be on the air and on the site. The same people complaining abiut GOB this and Rick Newman that most likely have not even seen the inside of the council Chambers. Quit crying and blaming and do something about it. PS vote for Wanda Pisarek who was so clueless she didn't even know there was a 3rd candidate in the ward till Steve told her
