Absolutely the most unqualified person to be our Mayor. She obviously can not handle the very large and looming problem that we are now dealing with. No vision, ambition and no ability to take charge and lead. No ability what so ever to answer important questions. Every question is answered with "we have to look into it" That is not an answer. She writes checks to her own family members for what we don't know because the large issue overwhelms the smaller issues. Everyone in the village feels like we are being misled due to her lack of attention and inability to do the job of a mayor. No one wants to run for the position until her and her huge and her mishandled mess are cleared up providing we are not a bankrupt village by then...which by the way is being discussed. What a shame!

Why don't you ask the fire chief and former mayor? And ask why the fire chief is also the treasurer. Ask why he let the comp case happen.

The village needs to have a forensic audit done on the finances of the Fire Dept. going back to the day that the Chief started. There is no doubt the mayor could push to have that done ASAP!
Its funny that as the area grows and other fire companies prosper from their field days and fund raisers, Prospect seemed to lose money annually to the point where they are no longer having field days at all...where's the money??? Get your big girl pants on Mayor and do the job!!! Look into getting an audit done on the FIRE DEPT. OR ARE YOU AFRAID OF WHAT MAY BE DISCOVERED???

Last time they tried to get an audit done, that mayor's personal expensive property happened to get damaged. Then the Fire Dept. said they would walk out if the village didn't back off.- would that have been a BAD thing? Nope. If you had nothing to hide, what would it matter if you were audited? The state shouldn't allow someone to be the fire chief AND the treasurer. It's all friends and family. That chief got all the old timers out. Wonder why.

I think that you all hit the nail on the head. There needs to be an investigation into the current state of where the village is and an investigation into how things got there. And how did we get to where we have a labor day with no field days...through good management and great vision?

All of this is happening on your watch Mayor! This 200 year old plus village's history is in your hands. What will your legacy be? The one who dropped the ball? The one who didn't do enough? The one who watched the village crumble around your feet? Or are you the one who will never settle for injustice and fight until the last swing. if so then we do not ever want to hear you say "there is nothing we can do" again!!!

Any mayor will tell you that the job requires effort and help from the residents. It has to become your life because you have the quality of life for 300 people and families at the hanging on every decision made. Unfortunately this current mayor has no experience in leadership or politics, she fumbles trying to make points and honestly can not handle the mayorship of this tiny village.
