AMEN SPIKE!!!! I agree, long enough. I hope he doesnt go back to building houses...I live in a product of his workmanship everyday. Maybe he can get a job @ the new DC when its built or maybe even move far, far, away....I dont live in city limits, nor do I vote city election but if you drive through downtown you can see how he has not done a thing for the city.

Most all I talked to at work today are glad he will be gone. Downtown Knox is a hole. Maybe the whole family will move far away. His brother is a big crook selling cars also. anything to make a buck , cheat steal whatever. We will have to see what the new guy will do.

Well I know Denny quite well...he built a hand full of homes late 1990's (mine being one of them). Tow of them in our subdivision burnt to the ground. 1 next to me, on 2 streets over. My home, and 3 others have electrical problems. burnt sockets, fixtures shorted out. Structurally we had to fix the piers under our home. Walls, have bowed. It does not hurt my feelings that he lost. I went to him for help/suggestions with my foundation problem...he said sorry not my problem...As a mayor, I have seen crime increase in the city limits. Vacant properties uncared for. Occupied ones as well are uncared for. I have a scanner, on all the time. Vandalism is up, thefts are up. I do not know Rick Chambers personally but I know a lot of folks who do. He appears to be a stand up guy, someone our city needs. Dipstok uses city equipment for personal use. The whole lot is useless.

denny estok is a egotistical no good who blamed others for his oldest sons problems.They think that they are better than everyone else his wife is a nosey stuck up witch and denny is a thief that was terminated from the knox sewage dept. some yrs. ago. I hope this loss of election humbles him or at least gets them out of our county!!!!!!!!!!

glad to see i am not the only one who dislikes that group. he has done so many things that are morally questionable. look up dysfunctional and its a family portrait of the whole estock clan. He makes me physically ill when i see his face. he talks as though he knows everything...such the authority. u r right about his wife....she is so full of herself as well. she use to own (not sure if she still does) Pizza King and Subway.....I do not eat @ either place....anything an estock has it hands on/in..is dirty, NO THANKS! i wonder what poor job he will have to lower himself to take when he leaves office...We need a pitty parade, good riddance day party..lol

I heard a rumor that they might be moving to our community, let me say this once. If he does i will personally let out all of the dark secrets that I know about this women beater...thief, drug addict!!! I know his son is already over here in culver and watch out culver citizens Denny himself said that his son was the biggest prescription pill dealer in Knox.

It's good that he lost. My children go to school with his children (or one but I won't mention which) and I don't want a mayor whos child goes around bragging on Myspace about "paryting" and "getting high" with pictures included. It's about time, he was no good for the county, there were NO improvements (I've lived here all my life) and there wasn't any discussed.
However, I don't believe they own as much of the town as they use to. Maybe Subway but Pizza King (since both mentioned above) isn't owned by her anymore, I believe some Tolson or something owns it own.

All of you are stupid. The Estoks are good, hard working people just like the rest of us. They built my house and I haven't had any problem with it at all. Denny had some good reasons for complaining about the election last year. Since most of you don't live in Knox, let alone Starke Co, you have not idea what your talking about. In the mean time, get a life.

no, Estoks ARE crooks, like most other Starke County cops and government officials. They all fleece the county and use it's resources for personal gain. YES I LIVE IN KNOX DESPITE IT SAYING OHIO, THAT IS MY WORK ISP.
