OMG, did anyone see the mayor yesterday during the power outage. She was an embarrrassment to the town. She was out attempting to help direct traffic and was wearing a dress and these horrible rubber boots..WTF

I love our mayor!! Why in the world do you think you have the right to criticize someone over what they are wearing? She was modestly dressed!
I think she is a great role model for our kids. My boys saw her out there around the time she started flagging traffic and also right when the power came back on. They remarked that she was working hard and if they were mayor when they grow up they would do things like she does! I am impressed with her, STOP being such a critic!
oh whatever

I think Carolyn is a wonderful mayor! At least she's out there helping out instead of simply barking orders at everyone else. She is very involved in the community and is a great role model for kids and young adults. She's a total sweetheart and really knows what she's doing! Quit being such a mean critic!
Uh huh

Riiiiiiiight....Ripley needs a Mayor with business management skills, public relations, AND the ability to tell the truth-NOT a cheerleader. Ask around about the $200K+ that was left over from last year's budget...where is it now??? I will wager that when you find the right answer you will be a bit surprised.

Speculation! You aren't providing any facts! If you had anything to prove your accusations she would not be continuing to hold her position. It's not the good ole days, things don't stay out of the public eye. Especially 200k things!

After seeing the mayor, I wondered why she was directing traffic. If that's the most important thing that she has to do, when you have professionals in the police department who actually know how to direct traffic, then Ripely needs to either cut her salary or find a new mayor.

Seriously? Cut her salary? Find a new mayor? She is an asset! Why criticize so much? Since when is it a mandatory part of her job to be locked in her office to never see the light of day pushing papers? It isn't!

I saw her yesterday directing traffic also. I think she is doing a great job as Mayor. And if i recall she is the only mayor i have seen in this town that actually gets out and does things. I have even seen her cleaning the sidewalks before the 4th so the town looked good.
Keep up the good work.
uhhhh

That's because she apparently doesn't have anything else to do, if she's not directing traffic, as the worthless police officers in this town should be doing

I think it is a safety issue with her directing traffic. I was in traffic on New Stone Ridge and the officers were distracted because it appeared they were tring to keep an eye on her. I really like the mayor, but again, I think it is a safety issue.

I praise the mayor of Ripley! She loves this city and it"s people. Prehapes if surrounding Cities had such a mayor their city would have more, be cleaner and if anything she deserves a Raise. God Bless You Mayor Carolyn

You are absolutely right. I think she is one of the best mayors this town has had, but again, I think her directing traffic is matter for law enforcement or DOH, ESPECIALLY at that intersection. There may be a safety and liability issue.

She is the best mayor Ripley has had in years. She is faced with many difficult challenges from trying to keep water and sewer rates down because of required updates to our old waste water treatment plant, trying to improve the image of the Police Dept after its latest two blows, and several other issues. If there is anything bad about the Mayor is she is a caring person and wants to give her all to the City! And that is a good thing. If she was or is so bad, why don't you run against her. I hate topics because of low life scum like you that can cowardly hide in their homes and say anything about anybody. This type of person must be miserable and hate life and you know what they say...misery loves company. Try getting involved and improving the drug situation or something like that....

All I've known her to do is help kids cross the street and direct traffic. Everyone says how great a mayor she is but what has she done to improve the town? Lowered taxes? Increased jobs? Let the police chief keep his job after 2 of his officers molested little girls? Not that he encouraged it or knew it was happening but you have to make changes after those things happen to show that it isn't condoned and won't be tolerated. New leadership can change the perception of the police in town and it is needed.
