Anyone else think we could do better for Treasurer? Nice lady, but she sure married a moron. Plus no MBA or serious finance background, just worked in a Chase branch slightly above a teller. We can do better in the next election.

Anyone seen BArnwell's loudmouth husband's comments on Facebook? What a tool he is. Hopefully once she loses re-election, he'll admit it was because of him and his big mouth that she no longer has a job.

Actually, Ms. Barnwell was a Bank Manager for Chase for several years. Might want to check your facts before speaking. Also, the previous Treasurers had no experience at all. We are finally getting good investment return and she is working on doing better on technology. I do agree about her lawyer husband. The rest you are incorrect.

I did check, she wasn't a branch manager. I have no problem with what she did there, only want someone more qualified and I think we'll get that next November. She is better than prior Treasurer's to be sure, but the city can do even better. Anything positive she brings is wiped out by the baggage from her husband. So, there will be a change next year, but it'll be a new Treasurer.

Yes she was a branch manager, and she’s been the best Treasurer the city has ever had. It will be a new Mayor, not a new Treadirwr that Warren gets. Enjoy.

Grapes obviously doesnt’t live in Warren because if she did, she would have seen the campaign piece that featured a picture of the current Treasurer completing training to become a bank manager. Stay out of Warren’s business!

I literally read this and laughed.

I know Lorie Barnwell personally. She is a friend. The fact that the best "dirt" you can dig up on our treasurer is a bold faced lie is telling of not only her character but of the quality of her work during her time as our treasurer.

It is EASILY provable that she was a bank manager with Chase for several years. Before that she worked as an assistant manager, and before that she was a personal banker. In fact, her entire adult career has been in finance.

And you know what? Even IF her only experience in finance WAS as a teller (which is some idiot's bluff to try and remove credibility from a well respected and outstanding treasurer), then she would STILL have more financial experience than her predecessor.

Her actions speak louder than Grape's words.

As for her husband, while he can come off as brash, he is a good man with a good heart who is most likely trying to defend his wife from the attacks of some powerful bullies who have nothing better to do than undermine her at every turn.

Hey Fouts! Why don't you fix our roads instead of wasting all of your time trying to smear our treasurer? First she "hacks" you, and now you send some goon to lie about her JOB record? something that we could confirm with a google search? is that really the best you could come up with?

Jealous, pathetic, and failing Mayor knows his career is in trouble and a young, accomplished, and determined public service with a private-sector record that outshines his, character that outshines his, and a machine behind her that will politically bury his Team thinks he can get trolls to stir that pot.

See this for it is: The racist, lying, sexist, failing Mayor, who has attempted (and failed!) at every turn to stop his far more qualified, younger, competitor from destroying him in two years if she decides to run for Mayor. His people don't even know how to troll on the internet. They attack good people and defend a man who called for the holocaust of special-needs children!

"Grapes" or whatever name comes next wants to post about "morons" and "baggage"? Just look at the words, actions, and behavior of unstable and maybe mentally-ill Mayor.

I hope Treasurer Barnwell runs for Mayor and defeats this pig once and for all.

No, as a longtime Warren resident, I don't believe can do better. Except for the office of Mayor. If Treasurer Barnwell runs for Mayor, I and many other Warren residents will put her over the top.

Jim Fouts and "Justin Fletcher", on "his" Kansas server, are going to be politically punished beyond their wildest dreams. Can't wait.

What specific actions speak louder? Just curious.

"Personal Banker"? "Manager On Duty"? Doesn't sound like too big of a responsibility. Only lived in Warren for eight years? If she had a U of M degree, she would've mentioned it. Warren can, and will, do better.

Grapes, actions will speak louder than words, dirtball. Very stupid people on your end think some very smart people aren't ready for massive political retaliation against Jim Fouts and his crew.

First her actions had already spoken louder than words, now eventually, at some point they finally will? Which is it? What actions anyway? Haven't seen much from her. Warren can, and will, do better.

I'm glad you brought up things that need to change in the city office of Warren. Is that Secretary girl Mika still the mayors assistant? It doesn't seem right to date your assistant then give her a big pay raise. Talk about working your way up the latter the sleezy way.

Grapes, no dummy. Actions will speaker louder than words in 2019 and you will regret your overconfidence and arrogance. Disgusting loser.

The topic CLEARLY says WARREN. Check your facts before you go on your rant.

I'm hearing rumors that some of the alleged 'higher return' investments Lorie has staked her 'reputation' on might be losing some principal with the rise in interest rates. I hope that is not the case. Lisa Wojno would be an amazing Treasurer. Big improvement over the current one.
