Just notice how SPRING has arrived today, amandas final day of terror on Marshville. Will be a gorgeous week of fine weather, and the handcuffs will be removed from the citizens as of today. She must have waited until the final hours to pack her junk as went past town hall yesterday and saw her blue jeep backed up to the door. Her and the short chubby girl moving boxes out the door into a white van and her jeep. Hope she hasnt taken any town property. Thinking it was her cases of red bull and snacks for the chubby girl. Going by there this morning to wish her a miserable future. No way she can succeed with her attitude and hope she takes chubby with her.

Oh my! I just met her today. Seemed timid and didn't give good eye contact. Didn't shake my hand. I took it as shy.

Now YALL have me very worried. We just lost a great town manager because he had a better offer. I hope you are all wrong and she learns from the mistakes she made there. And don't worry about Pilot Mountain State Park - it is run my the state to my knowledge. lol not Pilot Mountain.

She didn't learn anything from her mistakes. If she she did she would have rented a place in Pilot Mountain being thats who's signing her pay check. She hates anyone overweight, above 40yrs old,or anyone humble. You haven't seen anything yet. Take a good look at the older employees they won't be there for long.

Well all the employees are over 40... just about. She is the youngest addition. She can't get rid of them all. Wonder if our town checked these comments before hiring her? She is making $60K a year here. We have some fiesty people running the town. Not sure anyone will take crap if she dishes it out. There are a few main families in town that run things and are highly involved.... they are all over 50. Time will tell. What's all the comments about Christmas? We have huge parade and lights at Christmas. Did she do something there to hinder Christmas activities in town?

She hated the whole idea of spending money on christmas lights, most of all having to pay the public works overtime to install them. I won't even repeat the comments about the whole "christ" thing. She will start off slowly convincing the board how much cheaper it will be contracting out some of the services instead of using town staff. She will pick the oldest employees and double their workloads. She will gladly take your 60k and laugh about how she would never move there.

Now now, she wasn't all that bad, kept the local Red Bull distributor in business. Now he is hurting. As pops said, she didnt see anything good about Christmas, too much money that she wanted for other things. For those few families that are well off and involved in the town, say good bye. She will make all decisions regarding town finances, town decisions are the duty of the manager, no one else. Thats her motto. Give her a little time to make a plan and then watch her go to work. She will be untouchable. You need to call your mayor, council members, and other town employees, ask them to read all the topix stories dedicated to Ms. Reid. All these people cant be wrong.

I love how you judgmental assholes bash people (and not just Reid) and never reveal your real names. I'm just guessing it's because you are so sick of your own lives you must talk about others to make yourselves feel better. It's really easy to place blame with others (especially since you all seem so self-righteous and are so eager to "cast the first stone") because not ONE of you have faults of your own. It's pathetic. Get a life. Don't like it? Get out and do something about it. Quit 'ya bitchin'.

I would suggest that those feisty people running the town do find out about the true side of Reid before they are front page news. Did the town council consider checking references? They must hire just about anyone. Trust the people of Marshville. This many people can't be wrong.

Damn straight I didn't put my name. There is no need to. I don't come into this forum to bash local citizens, gossip and talk about people behind their backs. I come here to see what might be salvageable in our town and what we could build upon to make it better. I don't need to be validated, thanks so much.

Watch your taxes go up and your Christmas lights come down. Forget about a Christmas party for the town employees, she forbade that the two Christmases she was here.

The employee morale was so bad no one would have attended if there had been one. She does not believe in Christ except when she uses his name in vain.
