What do you think about the way Mayor Ramey talked to Mr. Artis at the council meeting? I think it's way past time for a new Mayor, and the apollogy should have been the other way around. He should Stick to selling used cars, and leave the politics to someone who knows how to treat the public respectfully.

I agree it is time that Wayne get ride of the Mayor is not anyone in Wayne smarter than a 5th grader and convicted FELON because that is as far as the Mayor went to school.
I hope that someone does file for Mayor against him before everyone on the Wayne Water has higher rates than those on Lavalette PSD and Water. At the rate the water board is going it will before the good people of Wayne can Vote the Mayor and the city Council out of office this time.
Would you really want to by a Car from a Convited Felon would that make you smarter that a 5th grader.

I do believe everything said against the man without action is called "Urinating into the wind" and that's all I ever read on here.

Well the first comment on this thread is correct. Does noone get the Wayne News now, it made the front page. Mr. Mayor told Mr. Artis that " he was sick and tired of the WVA Ethics commision and people like you" if that doesn't warrant an apology from Mr. Mayor to Mr. Artis then the people who live here have no morals of their own. As far as the town limits go, I thought they went all the way to Wal-Mart, that way Wayne could recieve the appropiate moneys from them? Is that not the town limits now that people in that area can vote for the town business? Therefore thats not pi$$ing in the wind, thats facts.

The mayor has gotten by with cheating, lieing , stealing and just being mean and rude for so long he doesn't know anything--people get up and get him out of office--put Toney Atkins in and get some honest things done for Wayne and maybe things all around will get better!! Or better yet Mike Ferguson- Ferrell Mills-Doss Skeens-Roy Ramey-Joe Ramey,Ruben Copley--Jerry Wellman--any of these men would be good mayors!!! There's a lot to pick from --just get out and get-er-done!!!!!
tired of crap

And if Mr.Artis lives in the town limits--WHY NOT HIM or FRED FERGUSON __NOW either one of those would be great--then there is Pat Mills we have a big choice let's ban together and do something instead of talking and whining about it--he is a disgrace!!

benny is a great man, so is fred and the others stated but they must want the job and if they do we must all take the time to vote, and show that we are ready for a change. or it will stay the same for our kids and grandchildren.

First things first, where are the town limits? Do you have to live in the town limits to run for mayor? I would love to be able to live in town, just so i could vote and be a part of the solution, not the problem in there now.

I believe you hit the nail on the head. Shame on Mr Ramey for talking to anyone that way. Is he this rude to everyone who is trying to help this town? Apparently Jr needs the money worse than the town does.

I really do want someone to tell me about the town limits. Didn't the limit get moved so that the town could recieve the revenue from Wal-Mart? Does that mean that everyone from end to end gets in on the voting process or only the ones that the Mayor wants to vote? Anyone enlightenment would help.

i think that mr artis owns land, a home, business property in the town, so why or who would'nt think he has no reason to show his concern. this is crazy.......this is why we have meetings and vote these people in for our concerns and to keep everything on a up and up i dont think we are doing this, when our mayor can just say no i dont want to hear what you excuss we must remember this is the town of wayne. not rameytown.

The County has "not" elected him to any office. He is elected by the voters of the Town of Wayne. In my opinion, he keeps his office from voters who believe they curry favor from him. The Mayor is by no means stupid. He knows the "system" from the inside out. A free or reduced rate on limo/bus service to a family or a school group goes a long way on a person's conscience come election day. All these so called "good" deeds the Mayor has done for the towns people is just smoke and mirror for his profit. Until the voters of the Town of Wayne no longer feel indebted to him when they cast their vote, he will continue to hold the post.

Fact is there is over 1200 people that live in the town of Wayne and just a little over 100 voted in last election.
Its not that the rest do not want a change but they want to see all new faces not just a few. So talk to all your friends in the town of Wayne and get a lot of New Faces to run for council and Mayor.
Only the ones that live in the town can run, the city limits run all the way down to Below Save a Lot but it only covers 152 except for Walmart area and if you shop there you know that the Mayor did not do a very good job of cleaning the streets into walmart so all he is interested in is what he gets in taxes to pay his salary and rent.
That why he is having all the studies done on building that Mr. Prichard gave to town of Wayne and he said the Town would have to stay in building for 10 years for it to be the towns.
I think that the citizens of Wayne would rather spend their tax dollars on something that is going to belong to the town rather than throwing away in a EPA hazard that they are now. Why was the gas tanks never removed from the building where they are now as required by law and all the oil soaked ground out back where they used to dump oil over the hill all the time not cleaned up.
All remember W&J and Wootens selling gas and working on cars. Also while the town is checking out Prichards property why not have same company check out the building they are now in for Hazards to the heal of workers and State Police but there was never anyone checked out this building for the town for EPA

i wasn't at the meeting but for mr artis starting this topic and to say someone owes him an apology for BEING RUDE well i remember only too well how rude and greedy his father was when he had the laundramat in town.i for one experienced my sons new school clothes being ruined after washing them at the ARTIS LAUDRAMAT and ole man artis telling me he wasn't reponsible for the oil that came out of his machines and ruining our clothes.he thought that he wasn't responsible for clothes that were damaged by his machines because of his sign he had in there ststing NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE DONE TO CLOTHING.he was so rude to me and another lady who had experienced this before ans saying things like it was my fault or he would buy me some cleaner that MIGHT take out the oil.well i sued him and won.him and his wife were nothing but rude in court and just plain mean.i won and the artis' found out that the supreme court had made many rulings in favor of ppl who had their belongings damaged in laundramats.they found out that when you provide a service to the community and charging for that service that you the provider ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR EQUIPMENT IN CASE OF DAMAGE.i know a lot of poor ppl like myself had the only clothes they were lucky to own damaged in that laundramat and didn't gey an apology or a penny to replace what little they had.ole man artis had to pay for my damaged clothes and COURT FEES.i beleive his son was being rude by his comments to the mayor.just what were his ententions with his choice of words.what i'm saying is if mr artis feels he deserves an apology then he needs to apologize to everyone his father and mother stole from and NEVER APOLOGIZED FOR.they were rude and crude business ppl to have to deal with.

i don't why you people want to complain about the mayor of this town he isn't the problem. the only thing wrong with this town we have no law enforcement. jr is not the problem we need to fix. we need the drugs out of wayne. our sheriff sit on his behind and does nothing. the drug dealers run this town.
