Unfortunately, the fools who should be out of city business are sitting on the platform facing the citizens at every City Council meeting. It isn't unusual, in a democracy, for a second rate candidate to win an election. Usually, they are a minority and are over ruled by a more level headed majority. The St. Marys Council is at the height of a perfect storm of mediocrity. We, the voters, are as much or more at fault as are the council members. We consistently elected less than the best. Too often it was because the best have been reluctant to run.
1000 voters have signed a petition expressing their disgust with our council and mayor. This is a rising ground swell that will eventually sweep them out of office. It will take almost four years to get rid of all of them. It will be four years of diligence and hard work. We have to recruit good candidates and get behind them. We have to keep up the fight for the sake of our city.
Buzz, Minority rule (plurality) works in St. Marys and Kingsland, or so it has in the past.

"QUOTE who= Anon" "Hey Mr Mayor, you might want to read the First Amendment some time. The right to petition allows citizens to focus government attention on unresolved ills; provide information to elected leaders about unpopular policies; expose misconduct, waste, corruption, and incompetence; and vent popular frustrations without endangering the public order. It is the right to seek the assistance of one's government without fear of punishment or reprisals....Quote"
And where were you, oh brave one, during the corruption and malfeasance of past St Marys administrations? Your chain was pulled by what recent event? Everyone in the city knows and no one is fooled by this display of sudden concern for a better government in St Marys. Stay out of city business fool.
Oh give it a rest, Jay (or is it Deb tonight?). What a pointless and illogical comment. So your contention is that no one should do anything now because past administrations were guilty of "corruption and malfeasance"? That's just laughably stupid.

Ok I see none of the folks collecting signatures are going to correct the wrong information. It is not 900 or 1000 signatures. It is barely 500 signatures.

not true anon. less that 500 St Marys residences' signed the petition. The rest of the signers do not live in St Marys city limits. The petition drive has been tainted because it should have been limited to St Marys residence only. But it was not.

Ultimately, I think it was good for all to take a deep breath and go into this fresh in another 10 days or so. I can tell you that the current grand jury is focused on serious allegations of misconduct by our illustrious representatives. In fact, the focus right now is on an issue much more threatening than anything referenced in relation to this petition. In light of testimony heard recently, it would be a mistake for the grand jury to be distracted now. That outcome is not in anyone's best interest ... except for the idiot savant Deloughy. Be patient! The truth about what is happening in St. Mary's is slowly finding its way to the surface.

Nonsense. Some issues involve those who live beyond the city limits. This is not a recall effort: the goal is to initiate and investigation into the actions of council. In that the petition papers themselves have not been seen by others you have no idea who signed or where they live. This is just another feeble attempt to elicit information.

Did someone let a nine year old sign, if so the signature is invalid. Minor's and dead people can't sign a recall petition.

Where should I start, Jay?
The headline "Camden grand jury delays petitions about St. Marys government". No, the jury did not delay the presentation: the presenters chose to begin with a new jury next month in that this one was on their final day and over-burdened.
"A Camden County grand jury declined to hear St. Marys residents who went to the courthouse Wednesday with a 1,000 signatures on a petition and documents outlining what they said are questionable and possible illegal acts by the St. Marys City Council." - Wrong again: they were free to present or to wait until the new jury was assembled. They chose the latter.
"The grand jury said it had a full schedule and told residents to wait until a new grand jury is empaneled around Nov. 1, said Jim Stein" Wrong again: Stein didn't say that because that is not what happened.
"Stein said the grand jury agreed it would be better to wait until a new grand jury convenes before making a presentation." Wrong: it was completely up to the citizens. Stein did not say this.
"Deloughy said he and other city officials went to the courthouse in case the grand jury heard the presentation. "We had the right to show up and present our side," he said. "I just want to get this cleared." Wrong yet again (this time DeLoughy was in error and you have to wonder why the city attorney isn't up on grand jury proceedings. They don't have the right to be there until such a time as there is an effort to indict them).
You could start with pondering the thought that I first saw this thread at 7:20 on 10/22 and that there are thousands more besides me who see you people for what you are and what you're really up to.

There they were running around the Camden County Courthouse: pied pipers at the head and their followers behind. Petitions in hand they wondered eyes fixed on their leaders. Today is the day of resolution they thought. The Grand Jury said otherwise. This is St Marys own political mess. You sort it out. St Marys can't even decide if it wants plurality or majority voting. So they pay attorneys to go one way and then the other. They elect a Mayor and city Council and then will not let them serve. Such stupidity boggles the mind. The only thing left is to relax and LOL.
After all, politics is a fun game.
