Look at that photo Pavey submitted for this Rushville Republican article. Pavey looks like he has "helmet hair."
Is that a toupee that Pavey wears or what???

Not surprised by yet another childish bash of Mike. Is that all you have to say?

Why Billy?

Not a bash. It's a clear indication that Pavey does not know how to promote himself effectively by distributing a photo of himself having a bad hair day.
Since Pavey cannot handle the simple task of effective promotion, it shows that he is extremely lacking in leadership skills.
Rushville is in such poor condition, we don't need another limp leader like Pavey.

No, its a childish bash. it is all the dems can do. They can't run on Billy's record, and they can't say what he will do because he is not speaking.

In that Rushville Republican story, Pavey claims that "job creation" is a priority for Rushville.
But while Pavey & Bridges were running the show here in Rushville, more local businesses closed than were opened. In other words, there was a net job loss while Bridges and Pavey were in-charge. And all this while the economy was humming along (2003 thru 2007).
We're in the worst economy this country has seen since 1929 thru 1941. If Pavey can't improve Rushville during a good economy, imagine the calamities we're in-store for while Pavey is in-charge during a bad economy.

Not true. Good try though. There was job gain during Bridges/Pavey Admin

We have seen the calmaties that can happen, it is called Bostic/Goins. They have no clue what fiscal responsibility is about. Billy said in his interview that he wants to continue the fiscally responsible government. This admin has been fiscally responsible? Turning a surplus into a deficit? Spending money on projects that were not needed or should have been put off? Giving away $250,000 of taxpayer funds and we are still on the hook for up to another $500,000 in lawsuits? Violating Officers Lane's civil rights costing us almost $100,000? This is fiscally responsible?

Job growth was positive under Bridges and Pavey, even while they dug us out from an earlier Bostic/Goins induced deficit. We can't afford four more years of Goins "fiscally responsible" government.

Job growth was NIL under Bridges/Pavey. Net gain of none.
Stop lying, Joe, and all your Pavey buttkisssers.

So now allison is tigger who is Joe who is Mr. Know? Sounds like when tigger was Darrin, was Pavey, was Sheehan, Jim Joseph and so forth and so on.

Unlike the dems, I have one name and I use it proudly. The dems on the other hand have been caught changing around.

That said, Allison is right. There was a net job gain under Bridges/Pavey. But of course you guys know that. That is why you have not put facts to your figures.

Oh but there was no net job gain during the time Bridges and Pavey called the shots.
Pavey likes to fantasize about imaginary local job gains but the fact still remains that there were jobs losses during Pavey's reign.
Job losses will only increase if Pavey is elected.

Feral, have we not told you about facts? If you can't supply them, then we are forced to take your word for it. And I do not plan on doing that.

Tigger, we ask you for the facts and all you provide is propaganda. Tigger has about as much credibility as Bill Clinton saying, "I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinski."

Ok name one? Seriously, name one of these propaganda statements i have made.

FYI, Bill Clinton, Bill Goins, both democrats, both make scenes when they drink and both have a habit of hitting on women. i am starting to see the similiarities here.

It's flattering, Joe, but I would hardly put bill goins in the same league as one of our greatest presidents.

I would put Mike Pavey in the same league as Richard Nixon, only at a much, much, much, much, much, much, much lower level (instead of a big fish in a sea -- a small fish in a mud puddle) when Nixon said, "I am not a crook!"

Diane, your devotion to the democrat party is obvious. Anyone who thinks the First Philanderer is one of the greatest presidents breathes every word the DNC puts out.

As I said, there are many parallels to Bill C and Bill G.

Nice try.
We have the real polls, and we know what they say. But feel free to spew your lies.
Hint: the numbers are not that evenly distributed.
