The roads are still covered in ice and snow. They've been covered for a week and finally at 9:30 am a sand truck came through. Pershing Avenue is still too icey to drive on. I've been down country roads in bfe cleaned up nicer than ours. Doug Coleman needs to get on the ball instead of sitting back and collecting a paycheck for nothing!!!!

HA! Obviously, he just heard my complaint as well as everyone else or maybe you live on a street that gets cleared and can care less how your children get to school. Besides, our trustees shouldn't need to be "told" how or when to do their job. They're elected for a reason. And exactly what should we talk about on a community forum? The guy next door thats screwing with another man's wife? or Who's the biggest hussy in town? Maybe thats more on your reading level. PLEASE MY DEEPEST APOLOGIES for disappointing you with a worthwhile post.

a west portsmouth resident i was merely pointing out that Doug wasnt the only trustee and that if you wanted something done about the situation you should call one of the three or all three until something was done instead of just sitting back and complaining about in on here..this is an open sight complain about what you want .. dont bother me in the least.........

He is a good person. It doesn't look like they are saying anything bad about him just seems like they want something done about the roads. I've noticed the ice on the roads too and although one isn't mine I've been on Pershing Ave as well as other streets around here that year after year don't get touched and are unsafe to drive on. The school buses have to dodge them and the kids have to walk nearly two blocks to meet them. Funds are there, the residents want it done, so why be upset over ppl voicing it. GET 'ER DONE BOYS!!!!!

wasnt upset over anybody voicing their concern i was just suggesting that calling them (more than one) would prolly get better results than doing it on here....I just didnt word it correctly to get my meaning across.. I apologize

i never knew of someone calling on the phone,to get them to do their job? We pay taxes over here,and the only streets that are completely clear are-wash. blvd.(the main street) or streets that the township workers or their family lives on..i see them plow the street,but after it's done..looks like it really wasn't touched. i just feel they put forth more effort,to make their own street spotless. Cars ski,down 11th and long-hope my kids aren't catching the bus the same time someone has to go to work.

how else ya suppossed to reach them and get anything done .. if ya call the township garage all you can do is leave a message and it gets listened to the next business day...remember the squeaky wheels gets greased the most ...call them .. thats what they get paid to do .. make sure this township is taken care of to the delight of taxpayers.... my personal opinion it would help if they would spread some salt to help melt the ice and snow instead of just sand ......IF the weather cooperates that is butthats just my opinion....

Doug Coleman is a Liar and only wants to help himself. Get real!! He is a crook. He has been involved with about anything illegal. If it makes him a buck he will do it. He steals off off his own brother.(loads of dirt) He can not read or write but want to be our sheriff or county commisioner. Greedy Doug. Do not trust him. He will be nice to your face. His own nephew did not back him.(Todd Book) That tells me something.

First off, I have lived on the West Side my entire life as well as my entire family and can tell you first hand Doug Coleman is good man. He is a wonderful family man that cares deeply for his community. Obviously, people know this considering he keeps getting re-elected as township trustee. Secondly, why sit on the internet and trash talk people? If you have a problem with the elected officals of the township then run for office yourself. However, that may require work. You wouldn't be able to sit around be lazy and complain about other people.

I have lived on the Westside also. I have been around the Colemans also. Doug is the Baby of the bunch. HE does steal off his brother. Everybody knows that! He is a liar also and everybody knows that. I like Doug and that it is the truth. I swear to God.lol Anyone who steal off of his brother that has took care of him is not good. Doug gets elected because of so many Colemans. He got beat bad by Tom Risner. Tom beat him on the Westside. Everything I have said may make you mad but it is the truth.

who is bad mouthing doug coleman, he is one person that most people associate with the trustees here on the west side, and usually the first one most go after when something needs done! 98/cent of the time it is done very quickly, if not immediately when doug hears of the problem. doug is a really good person who dedicates an unreal amount of time and patience to the trustees position here in washington township. if you see him please tell him thanks for the great job and i promise you it will get more done than a complaint everytime!!!

Doug is it you??? Doug has been loosing votes every year he has been in. People are starting to see. Doug will help you if it is going to help him more. I did check and Doug Coleman is a crook. I think he was in the wiskey truck. He made good money off of it. He steals at the Coke Plant also. Ask his family about the dirt he hauls. I like Doug but it is the truth.

Do you want them to raise your taxes to pay for it? everyone around you is going in the red.Look at the county!! Why don,t you buy some and put it on your own road. My taxes is high enough.

ummm salt is only about $100 /ton and they could mix it in with the grit they already have....20 tons of salt would do this township good 20 tons x $100 = $2000.00
