Why would anyone vote for someone who said they will have a previous mayor, who everyone knows was a thief and a liar, as their chief consultant?

The one village in the area that is doing halfway decent. Bad decision.

I have to agree, anyone who grew up with the Vande Veldes know what kind of people we are dealing with here. They think with a mob mentality.

Decisions like these are the reason why voting does not matter. We cannot expect people who cannot use their brains in their own daily activities to all of a sudden make a good decision when they go to vote.

Horrible employee? Vandevelde worked 30 years at the college as an IT guy. 30 years must be doing something right. Actually Mike is a great person.

What does being a great person have to do with being a good mayor? He sat on the board for a year back in 2005. He hasn't been to a board meeting in years. He even told Mayor Carr he thought he was doing a good job. Now I remember, right, he has a past mayor as his advisor>LOL

David Carr didnt do anything for anyone. Bashing anyone and everyone whose ever been apart of anything in this town doesn't do any good. The election was a clean sweep. Vande Velde won by a great amount, so the VERY FEW of you morons that voted for Carr didnt do a very good job. Go cry about your LOSS elsewhere.
