to move away.I was just wandering,what kind of Mayor does the city have?City council?Fire Dept?Police Dept?I was just curious and any input would be nice.
thanks

I have a feeling you have already formed an opinion on this subject and are just wanting people to talk trash..

During Joe's reign as mayor I thought he done an okay job. He was elected and re-elected so he must've done something right. If I'm not mistaken he only left office due to his health.

Well the real reason for joe leaving office was probably to let his boys have jobs, was tired of keeping them and decided to let the city do it...

I don't believe our city is really any different than others concerning politics. Joe was a well liked man and it shows because the City elected his son. Yes, his health, I think was the reason he couldn't run again. They are a good family!

Good point, that is probably exactly why Stanley was elected. I agree they are a good family.

You know, everyone has their faults but all in all- politics is the same everywhere. Of course Joe would want to help his family, isn't that only natural!

Yeah, I agree Joe did a good job, I was just asking to see if "hnj6000" was here when he was in.. Because I was going to tell her that the mayor is now his son..

But Anyway, I dont think Stanley even equals up to the job his dad did.. Correct me if Im wrong! There is many things that have been left undone since he's been in office..

I got a good laugh though when he beat Tom Frazier. I thought it was funny because Tom thought he had all the back up he needed! Proved him wrong, I guess?

I'm pretty sure we've basically touched base onto what kind of City Council we have in other threads.. But I will say that we will just have to wait and see how that turns out now!

Our Fire Department isn't all that much to brag about! Paul Howard is cheif and I think he is a really rude man!

And the City Police, well It sure is weird these days! Andy, Brian, & Matthew!! Myself, I think they could have picked someone besides Brian Baldwin!! He's a bad character, he has not personality! Our Sheriff Department though consists of Marsilette (sp?) Peace, Matt Bailey, & Bob.. I think its a fair share but personally I think that the way they keep escalating officers it kind of makes our town look bad. Several years ago, there were usually the same officers for several years at a time. Now it seems as if they get new ones every few months.. I dont know, that could just be me!!

And our city might not be any different than others but I think we have more than enough right to talk about it, beings we live here!!!

Sally, I don't think Stanley comes close to doing the job his dad did. Will he in the future? Maybe with some experience.
I was so happy Tom Frazier got beat out. It cracks me up that he thought he had it. LOL
I was thinking about the FD this morning. That Paul Howard is hateful, for sure. Do you know if he gets paid for his position? Are any of the Fire Dept. members paid volunteers?
With Matthew being a police officer, you'd think he would want to set an example..not go the other direction. Pease is a prick. Matt Bailey (well I have an opinion on him, not so good).. wasn't he the one who had the Pregnant GF who passed away in the car accident?? Then not too long later he got with someone new... sounds a little too fast for someone who is mourning to move on. Maybe that's just my opinion.

I agree also that Joe was a better Mayor, overall, he had a better personality and communicated better than Stanley. But maybe with experience he will get better with both! I also agree that it can be discussed because it is our city. I also was so glad that TF got beat!
The police dept, I don't know much about but it does seem they have trouble keeping them, maybe it is hard to find people who have never had a record or anything. IDK!
I do like this family though, so maybe I am too biased to state my opinion!

Well KellB, I myself dont think Stanley will get any better because this is his what 2nd term? And the first was just because he was his dads son, know what I mean, and this time was because noone wanted Tom in.. Or thats what I think!! And yeah, alot of the fire dept get paid, They get paid so much each run they go on, and even the duty man that stays in the house over night gets paid, you know Paul Howard isnt going to be all in it for no reason if he isnt getting something out of it. He is a very hateful man!! And yeah Matt Baileys girlfriend did get killed while bearing his child, and look at him already over it and engaged again to Richard Williams daughter of Circle J farm and BTU gas!! It's awful odd that you seen him on Your News Today when Ritt aired it he was crying and stuff and even Bob talked of how Matt cared so much for her and stuff..

But yeah Stanleys Parents are good people they are close family friends of ours.. But Stanley however does NOT take after Joe in any shape, form or fashion!

Sally-ville- I know what you mean, Stanley isn't like him much at all! I just think he has a total different personality and makes it harder to communicate with people! But in my opinion the whole family would give you the shirt off their back. They are very good-hearted.

I think joe was elected 4 terms,I worked for him for 12 years,and then moved away.He was a good mayor,boss and friend.But,like I said earlier,I was avictim of small town politics.Stanley and I used to be friends,but have lost touch with him and was just curious what kind of mayor he was.I really have no opinion,ido not come home maybe 1 time a year.I went to school with Matthew watson,and was good friends with him,i hope he is a good officer.The Fire Chief is a paid position,a well paid position,and also 3 other fireman are paid.They are npt paid that well,or back in the day they were not.Paul is a very difficult man to work for,he is never wrong,just ask him he will tell you the same thing.Salyersville will always be home,I would not trash it just fir the sake of trashing it.Did someone say Tom Frazier ran for Mayor?If so,that is as big a joke as he is?

From the outside looking in Salyersville is not very appealing. The Little town looks unkept & dirty. It's no place I would want my wife & daughter to be without me.

I have no doubt there are many good and hard working people there,, but the negatives far out wieght the pluses
