Did I read correctly in the Progress-Index that Yolanda Stokes is living in public housing? How can that be?

I think Wayne Taylor and David Silvestro would be great additions to city council.

You people who whine about the good ol' boy system... Get over it. You're just a bunch of loser outsiders who never ran with the In-Crowd.

If you're that passionate about the topic, why don't you run for city council?

I think we all know the answer that question. It's because you're a nobody and you would surely lose.

Bujakowski hasn't ever been on city council. How was he bought and paid for? What good would it have done to buy and pay for someone who has no say in whether the plant comes here? Get your facts straight before you start flappin them gums. Bujakowski would be a great councilman from what I've heard asking around. The others can all take a leap.

Bujakowski is a good old boy plant, they will expect to control him and his vote. The good old boy's want Emerson out because he didn't play ball.
As i see it, put Bujakowsli in and you will still continue to have the same as you have with the other problem councilor's, and we all know who that is.

If Yolanda Stokes has all that education and experience why is she living in public housing and not supporting herself?

its obvious by this comment that you really dont know these two people. and if you do, well then you are just as slimy and crooked as they are and your opinion means nothing and you need to crawl back under your rock. the only thing you know how to do is post comments to see who you can piss off first. why dont you grow up and try having an adult conversation for once in your life?

GI Jane, prove me a fraud. I would bet you that I can more prove my points than you can yours. I speak from the position of what I have seen for myself not out of my A$$ as some people do in here.

Go dig yourself another hole to crawl into, because you have filled the one your in with B.S. and it stinks.

Stokes has major health issues from being hit by a truck when she was very young. She is very smart, however, she was cheated out of a very large medical settlement by a lawyer who later became a judge. Many tragic events in her life has shaped her into who she is today. If you knock her for living in public housing, then you are questionable in your character. Just because you live in public housing does not prevent you from being on council. She would not be in public housing today if corrupt judges had not taken away her house by fraud.

Unbelieveable.....time to clean house.....or in this case Council! And while we are at it get rid of this so called Chief of Police who only knows how to create discord and charge everyone and anyone with violations of things that never happened. What and Idiot our City Manager has given us to lead (excuse me,attempt to lead) our department. It's time to do something positive and effective. We must band together to ensure the public and city management are aware of what's going on in the department. Post your stories here of our Councilors and the Chief in hopes our devoted citizens and city leaders (or presumed leaders) can observe our views!

Great Scott, I agree with you. Clean house of all our city leaders. I have not been impressed with this so called new Chief in Hopewell.

The Sheriff needs to go also. He is just one step above the town drunk...On second thought maybe he is the town drunk.

The city needs to fire that "consulting firm" it uses every time they want to hire some one.

Weren't we promised if we got rid of the police chief (Rex Marks) the crime would decrease? What the hell happened? We've been lied to enough from these people trying to control the city. Vote em all out!!!!!! We certainly need a new social services building rather than focusing on our biggest assets (the James and Appomattox) what a joke.....
