Pastor Trey Graham at First Baptist Church Melissa has a great blog about MICKI Jobson. She has posted detailed information on her vision for the City of Melissa. It is a great site to read. Seems to me that she could get the job done. I will continue to watch this ladies progress.

I don't think a church is the place to look for a great political blog.. This gal has no real vision for the city...doesn't attend city council meetings and is involved in smear campaign...no credible information of what is going on at all.

So what would you suggest? Dorman's website? A vision unclouded by greed and dollar signs isn't exactly "no vision", jerk-off. Still, I'm thinking Greer can put Dave's little fire out.

Just what is a decent endorser?

Mayor David Dorman up to no good again this week. Anything to get in the paper. I personally think he should be banned from walking into a school. A person like this should never be around kids if what we are seeing is true. You at the school could be held accountable when the real news hits. Well when they find out what he did before walking into that school that day, it should be enough of a breach of integrity to be cautious. All the real news will hit soon-

Melissa Water Tower...story reads. Dorman states the poor city had no money. That year they spent how many millions on Attorney Richard Abernathy and other city attorneys? If Dave is not doing something wrong, please let us all know why a city would pay more per month on an attorney than the water tower property cost. Keep in mind that the city paid about a third of the whole property that Dorman bought.

Hmmm. And Dorman does? Who? His future co-defendants?
You are always so angry.....are all of Micki's fans like this? guess that explains why none of her neighbors will even post one of her yard signs

Integrity Matters..........not how many signs one has bought._________Money can be better used than buying those David Dorman signs that are 200.00-400.00 each. Probably not the best way to spend a buck._________ Keep in mind that Dorman is allowed to spend a lot more than the smaller guys. And when you are willing to do dirty work, there may be a few companies who would be glad to pitch in a few thousand dollars. Some people are above taking "Dirty Money"._________check the list of Dorman players and see who is getting a "special deal" in town. They all get paid sooner or later._________Most spread the signs around -not just on your block. No need for multiples._____How many Dorman signs are on city property and where they should not be? Play fair and get ahead

First of all, don't go there with signs being placed legally. I know for a fact that they are. How bout the sign on post-office property???? They took it off that property and moved it to city right-of-way.....DUH!!!! Dirty money....you'll say anything to make yourself feel better since you don't have the backing of other people to help you out. "Special deals", you really would be a good writer for a 'soap opera'.....wait, you have a pretty good one right above this post!!!!

You are right about a soap opera. Dorman has weaved a web of controversy. So very wrong to have hurt so many. We have one Melissa councilman who was hospitalized for two weeks due to Mayor Dorman. Want to check the facts.

Why don't you post that link Dandy Randy....I'm feeling a little lazy today. I'm sure, like all the other crap floating around, your accusation is in some legal document somewhere....and just so I can give you credit...which member are you talking about?

Re: "I'm sure...your accusation is in some legal document somewhere..."

First they wanna see 'em -
Then they don't.
Hmmm...
Go figure.

BTW: When it's stated in a deposition or an affidavit, that pretty much makes most folks know it's gone way past "accusation" straight to "fact"- unless you're one of those delusionals prone to grasping at straws in Dormans defense.

Dorman has accomplished so many more positive tasks here in Melissa than the other two candidates combined. The citizens of Melissa have spoken over and over for 12 years...keeping Mayor Dorman in office. Just because there are 5 unhappy people out there doesn't mean the other 3500+ citizens disagree with the Mayor.

WEll- we're making progress, folks...
unless the missing 1,500 folks are under the "+" category (5,000-3,500=1,500)

Maybe the the lights are coming on...

I don't work for the city so I don't know the numbers.....doesn't seem like you should be slamming the latest figures if you think I'm wrong....guess you don't know either!

Here's your peace of mind.

Meet the Candidate Night
Tuesday, April 21
High School Cafetorium
7-8

Let's just see how much your candidate knows about our city.....not McKinney or Fort Worth....but Melissa!!!! Let's see if they have done their homework...how many city council meetings they've attended and how accurate their information is. Hopefully they have been fully briefed on the newest projects that are in full-bloom....citizens are excited about them. Are you 'in the dark' because your candidate doesn't know about them? One of them is extremely exciting for our youth!!!! If you have any involvement with the city....you would know about this!

So, you're in possession of proprietary information? Oh, you must be talking about the Boys and Girls Club. Great idea! We all support it. Do you think Dorman has a monopoly on helping children? Micki has 2 daughters at home, think she doesn't support it? Bringing things like this to the city are part of the duties of a Mayor. Question: Why wasn't it done sooner? Answer: Because Dorman was too busy padding developers pockets with the "deals" he worked out. Do your homework, be informed.

It musta took months to spin all their daring doings into something that at first sniff actually smells good... but the surprise comes when you scratch it...
