I like how Janet Vogtli says "we" and has this new interest in the Village of Gowanda budget when she isn't even a village resident. Yes, she and Joe own several pieces of property here but the fact is that she can't vote for or against any of the office holders. I can't help but wonder if this is about a genuine concern for the village, or is she using it to get her name in the paper, raise her profile some more for a possible run for office?

You say she can't vote and isn't a village resident, so why would she "raise her profile some more for a possible run for office".

What I know about Gowanda it's the fact that hardly anyone speaks up and questions what is going on. I appreciate the fact that she did this. Maybe this will encourage residents to do the same. You can't keep hiding your heads underwater expecting someone else to save you.

Rise up and do something about it. Stop voting in the same o same o. Get youth in there with more updated thoughts and ideas.

Stop being so afraid. I would do it if I were a resident but I am not.
nice to see

nice to see we have added respectful and responsible people out around. there is always room for people who want to improve out here. they pay taxes and keep the area better. remember that old laundry mat? we need people who care.

Being a longtime friend of the Vogtli's I can say that they have improved a lot of things in town. Janet is certainly politically minded and Gowanda needs that, however she's working for the people here, not for herself! Just because someone speaks up at meetings does not mean they think they're better than anyone else, just that they MEAN what they say!

with this area's history, seems like elected people are usually the wrong doers and criminals. she is none of that. she is better off, especially with people who slander like you do.
