MarcHef seemed to have a close personal relationship with the aforementioned person. However the situation(s) in question seem(s) to point that SHE is more interested in her own agenda than the well being of the citizens of Marshville. If she was so interested in the best for Marshville, then why destroy documents....maybe to cover her tracks? Why cover her windows to keep people from seeing her in her office? Why lie about what was going on with the backing of the Mayor.
Her brand of leadership and ethics has no place in city government!
I'd advise MarcHef, since he is so close to the Town Manager, to advise her to move on, build her resume, and shoot for the office of the President of The United States with MarcHef as the Chief of Staff. The both already have down the tactic of blaming their predessors for their ineptness.
BTW...maybe Edmondson could be the Press Secretary.
Destroying what documents? The documents were from the 50s and 60s and she and her mother went through them all individually, making sure not to throw away anything that was important. They spent nights and weekends there going through all the documents of the town and got rid of nothing but trash.
She covered her windows to stop people from stareing through the glass at her, you know she is a beautiful young woman, unlike the heffers of Marshville. Men, and even some women would stand there and glare through the windows for a peek at her. She couldnt work under those conditions.
She told no lies, unless it was for the good of the town, and she made the town better for all she has done.
You people spread rumors and lies about her, and it is the town that will suffer without her leadership.
And please dont insult Mr. Edmundson, it would be wonderful for him to grab onto her coat tails and continue printing the truth wherever she accepts a new position, as I am sure she will get plenty of offers.

Sorry again, but you wont see me as I wouldnt attend a meeting there, And your post says you live in Brooklyn anyway. Why cover your tracks as far as listing Brooklyn as your home, why not just go there then. And Amanda has more common sense than most people, she is very successful, educated, and damn pretty. She has these qualities that most are lacking around there.

Excuse me mr. marchef, are you the person that she was dancing with last night at shawnigans? Someone there told me it was her, a tall skinny girl, sitting with the traywack boys and smoking cigs as if they sending smoke signals. she need be careful going out at night in marshville, dangerous place with no police protection to come to her rescue. Police may just look the other way if you know what i mean.
You sure sound like you know alot about her experiences here, sure you aint a man named marctraywack?

I didnt say anything about "uneducated" people in your town, I said probably no one with a Masters Degree. Do you even know what a masters degree is? Alot of years at AppState and alot of hard work to pay for a good education. BTW I am republican, and dont like fried chicken. Opposite of most of your Marshville.

I am sorry you feel this way about such a well educated and professional woman. You really have not given her a chance to get to know you, or you to know her. She is not as you people describe her. She is highly intelligent, a Masters Degree, which I am sure no one else in Marshville has, and most cant even spell Masters Degree. You finally get a manager that can control things in town, get the town running forward, making money, and you want to run her off. She has been a savior for the town, you would have ended up flat broke without her fixing things and increasing the revenues. A bunch of idiots.

This girl has lost all hope to find a new job, at least not in government, maybe at a Wilco or Food Lion if she is lucky. Topix will follow her everywhere she goes. If Marshville, as small as we are, keeps tabs on Topix, I only would think most all towns, cities, would have their Topix Groupies as well. Her name is mudd, yes with two d's. She will never escape the internet.

As far as I can read, if 1/2 of it is evenly remotely true, she deserves everything she is getting. Either you have no idea, never met her, or you are one of the trickwick groupies. But then again you have a voice also and have a right to be heard, although not many will agree with you.

Ok now Marshville Kingdom, lets not fight. I can tell you that this is not meant to torment anyone, only make the kingdom aware of what happens in the politics of town. I have been here for more than 10 years uncovering coverups, righting wrongs, truthing the lies, and this will continue at least until I retire in 2016. There have been many topics of discussion that without Topix would have only gotten worse and gone unnoticed. There will be a time that our officials will shake and shudder at the thought of thier name appearing here on Topix, and that will keep them clean, maybe. I invite all comments, pro and con. You all tell it and we all read.
As for the town manager, she needs to go, sooner the better. She has been here about two years, has instituted change after change, all without a positive to them for the town citizens. People in town do not like paying more taxes, more for water, more for trash, more for, more for, more for, and in return recieve less in services. She has done a great job to take but fails as a giver. Running a town takes agreement/compromise, and she has that skill, as long as it is her that you agree with.
As for Chief Carl, he needs to be scolded and made to take an ethics class. He needs to know the rules before playing the game. I applaud him for being honest in the paper, and for using his own funds and not the taxpayers.
The council will continue to be divided as long as we have Frank as a mayor. Its a black and white issue, nothing more.

Wondering how much sh!t this lady can do before she gets fired. Every day something else comes out of the closet. Will it stop after she is gone or will we be uncovering her deeds for months to come? This council needs to stop the bleeding. The town is the laughing stock of anyone that has even heard of the town, and the citizens dont deserve this.

And she proves it every day since the first day she been on the job right? She screwed this town and all citizens and employees for years to come. Her actions will affect us for years. About 34 more work days for her and then the town can start the recovery. Since you seem to be a friend of hers then please ask her to leave early, and take some employees with her. She has converted some to think like her and they are tarnished now. Saw a sign today for help at Captain D's if she is interested.
