Any ideas Melchert had of running again were washed away in the floods in September.

Due to the way she handled that problem, she couldnt have won again.

That may have been the last straw, but I think folks are ready for a change. It's been too many years of ego not listening.

Melcher was a "nice" mayor but not a very good one. She made everything "nice" but not good for the Bartlett residents. The town center is a joke!! Don't like the new railroad station either or that pack of street lights in the downtown area that give you either a red or green suntan from all the lights that are installed. Bartlett needs a mayor that can get more busineses into Bartlett to help with the tax base. And get the store rents in the town center to be more reasonable so a small family business can survive there. Get something going for the teenagers in Bartlett to take part in to give them something to do besides roam around and get in trouble.

Melchert is not a nice person; she is a bully and at some times like a very spoiled little child when she did not get her way. As i stated in my first post. Good riddance -
