HE WAS A NO SHOW AGAIN TAXPAYERS !!!

Bet he found out Elizabeth Ochoa was going to be there ..... got scared, didn't want to have to answer to the public !!!

Where is your VOICE on this Shon Sadler?????

You yak loud n proud when referring to the "cost to the taxpayers", yet NOTHING about an absentee mayor for over 2 months!!! HHHmmmm, guess his running around for lunch n dinner while being paid doesn't constitute taxpayer waste??

OR how about when he's being paid as a full time mayor but doesn't have any office hours?

Come on Shon, we need answers!!

Come on people, its not just Lane, he is like any other CEO you have to count on the people that have been elected and hired to do their jobs. There has been no oversight by elected officials of department heads. Just look at the mess Delaine caused, John Jones in the building department did nothing for 15 years and now the current employees are suffering trying to get everything updated with no budget. Shantal Taylor hiring a moron only because he was black and he made many mistakes costing the city thousands. She continued to harass and berate good employees because they challengrd het poor decisions. They all need to go. Please show up to each and every council meeting demanding answets.

Ochoa was nothing more than a pawn.
The City still functioned with the Mayor out if action.
Nobody ran against the Mayor when he ran. Seems no one is up to the job.
That said. You get what you vote for. It's time for people to vote in new blood in all areas of government. Even local office.
Public is not a place to sound off negative comments. Take action by talking to them. You'd be surprised where you get.

I am not saying that there are not problems. There are. There always will be. The trust factor is a highly needed step between officials and citizens. I think things need to be changed. Following the law is one of them. Honesty too.

Bill Clinton. John Edwards. Rod Blagojovich. Lane Harrison. Shantal Taylor. All perfect examples of whats wrong with AMERICA. Talk is cheap folks. Why do you lie,lie,lie and get mad at the AMERICAN public for calling you out on your lies. Politicians that treat the general public like this should be should be charged with treason , and executed. The U.S.A. will never improve with the leadership we have seen become used to. It is an absolute travesty what life has become. Our elected officials all act like the dictators they speak so lowly of. This is not cuba or north korea or iran we live in , but it is slowly seeming more and more like it.

I agree Elizabeth Ochoa was a pawn for them. Her small company did soem minor renovation for me...and botched part of it as they don't speak English...they no more could have developed a baseball park then I could build the space station in my backyard.

Lastly, they only are going after Shantal due to race and the fact she beat them. Their afraid to call the mayor out because he's "got people". Chicken sh#*'s.

There you go. Play the race card. Anyone with half of a brain can see shantal is nothing but dirty. Obviously you don't even half of a brain.. OPEN your eyes.

I don't have a half a brain? That's still double what you've got...think for yourself, she has little power, the ones who've been messing the system are the old guard members, she's not been in on any of their dealings and they fear she might expose them. The "race card"? You're so 1999.
