As a simple process of elimination, Orr hasn't done anything to guarantee that I wouldn't vote for him. All other candidates have. I honestly cannot figure why Strong and Gilmour are running at all.

Well, we have reasons why to vote for Incumbent Mayor Orr. Can any of the voters for Ald. Neises, Fmr. Mayor Strong, or Fmr. Ald. Gilmour give their reasons for voting for them?

If you hate new business coming to Wilmington, that'd be a reason to vote for Neises.

If you're a big fan of handing out huge severance packages after being voted out of office in an attempt to force the person who beat you to have to keep the people you appointed, that'd be a good reason to vote for Strong.

If for some reason you are offended by Strong's actions, but are okay with having one of his yesmen elected to mayor, you might want to vote for Gilmour.

Downtown businesses will be hurt badly with anybody but Orr. He won't help us, but he will do no harm. The same cannot be said about the other three.

Please explain "He won't help us" What exactly do you want the mayor to do for the downtown businesses?

Nosy shit aren't you. Weigh the options and when the time comes, vote for Mayor Marty. It is not rocket science.

This guy is still mayor? With the city out of money I thought he and his northern cronies would have let by now.

The city has been out of money pre-Orr, with him in office he actually reduced the deficit we had. And northern cronies? Can you produce any evidence of that?

Yes you can they post it in the paper every month

when Strong left office the city had just over 1.2 million in the bank now they are running at a deficit as far as the "northern cronies thing" yes it is true almost everyone on the city council moved here from up north in the last fifteen years most of them moved here because they couldnt afford where they were at (or wanted to live at) now they are making this place what we cant afford

Sounds like some people need to get the facts before they post stuff. Do you look at any of the facts or just believe what people say who have no idea what they're talking about?

When Strong TOOK office the city had nearly $4 million in investments ... so leaving with close to $3 million less isn't too good of a record, is it?

No the books showed there was money pre Orr now there's a lot less money. The evidence sits in that office at City Hall (cronies) and hires all of his buddies from Yorkville ...he's a crook and we all know it !!! The last city he worked for knows it too. But that's one of the great appointment Marty has made.

Orr inherited a very silly situation with the severance packages issues. It was something only a silly person would have done because he lost.

The "cronies" you speak of were interviewed by the city council. Have you looked at the books yourself or are you basing your statement on "hearsay"? Any proof "he's a crook"? Did you have a run-in with him about something? Another uninformed statement.

But Marty wasn't born and raised in Wilmington! Such lunacy must be stopped! Obviously only people born in Wilmington can be trusted!

There is where the problem lies. We need people from outside the area, with new concepts, new ideas, to fix the mess left over from previous administrations.
Lunacy is living in the past and not accepting change and growth. Isolating yourself from the outside world won't make it go away. It makes you easier to taken over and replaced.

Yep, hes a crook. I had a run in with him and overheard something first hand. Its time for bug eyes to go. His entire group is just plain criminal and out of control.
