I work for a different company now, but the carmel problems persist. We do have a couple of business' there, but we don't send people to work there after dark when the profiling usually is at it's highest. And if we have a business request an all white crew now, we refuse and drop them, it's just not worth it to us. It's bad enough we have to deal with racism, and racial profiling in the southern part of Hamilton county, Carmel, Fishers and Geist, but the people in that part of the county are also some of the most unpleasant, unhappy people I've ever met, they are so self centered and needy, you just can't please them no matter what you do for them. Fortunately, we have more than enough business' that need cleaning to keep all of the staff here working a long time.

I don't know about Brainard, we don't take any government work, too hard to get paid, or they want a big job done and only want to pay half the costs, we aren't the EPA.

We're talking about 900,000,000 dollars here. Take a chill pill? You've got a mayor who builds brass statues equipped with surveillance and audio devices for our "protection".(As reported in the Carmel Topics and IndyStar North) This is NWO headquarters. Time to wake up folks. The era of oblivion and denial will soon cease to be an option.

TO--"FED UP", and "George the Janitor".

Amen to you!!

CARMEL INDIANA is BROKE!!

You are also correct about the $900,000,000.00
in Carmel Indiana's city-governmental DEBT LOAD
in a town, Carmel Indiana, with a shrinking
population of less than 63,000 persons.

Since 2002, Carmel Indiana has had a NET JOB
LOSS of 17,000 jobs and careers.

70% is all available office space in
Carmel Indiana is VACANT, in 2008.
In 2004, only 8% of Carmel's available office space
was VACANT!!

Yet, Brainard says that Carmel Indiana is an
economic "boom".

What "economic boom"??

Bruce Cordingley of PedCor, Brainard's controller,
is the MAJOR CAUSE of Carmel Indiana's
Eonomic DEPRESSION!!

13 years of "mayor" Brainard have wrecked
Carmel Indiana.

It's also so sad that "mayor" Brainard of Carmel
Indiana is calling Carmel Indiana an "ALL-
WHITE Community".
Accordingly;
Racial-profiling is out of control in Carmel Indiana.
ALSO;
Anti-semitism is on the move in Carmel Indiana.
For example;
Our only Jewish synagogue,in western Carmel Indiana,
has had several incidents of Nazi SWASTIKAS
spray-painted on it exterior.

Our local banks have finally stopped loaning
Brainard any more money for his screwball
FOLLY projects like the "performing arts center".

It is time to realize that Carmel Indiana's
"days of glory" are OVER!!

To "FED UP",and
"George the Janitor"----KEEP ON WRITING,
and God Bless You Both, for the REAL TRUTH
about a dying Carmel Indiana.

I destroyed my home town.
Bruce Cordingle, CEO of Pedcor has produced an
economic DEPRESSION.

Please forgive me. I have failed as Mayor
of Carmel Indiana.

I guess only Ron "ROTAY" Carter can save
Carmel Indiana.

WHITE PRIDE--WORLD-WIDE!!

Truly speaking, Carmel Indiana is BROKE
and it's all my fault, and PedCor's CEO
Bruce Cordingley too.

Please forgive me. I have failed as you all as Mayor
of Carmel Indiana.

I guess only Ron "ROTAY" Carter can save
Carmel Indiana.

I am guessing Carmel Patroit had his home foreclosed in Carmel and, like most people who are failures, he is blaming his problems on outside agencies instead of himself.

Linda,

Patroit???

From some of your comments, I can guess you have never really had to struggle with issues that a lot of regular folks have had to. It sounds as though a lot has been handed to you.

I deal with the same issues as anyone else...kids, jobs, family, poor economy, etc. It is HOW I deal with them that is apparantly different. I do things to put myself into position to succeed, not fail.

There's no question that how people deal with setbacks has a lot to do with the outcome of things. I've had setbacks, failures, and disappointments like anyone, and chose to survive and thrive. The thing is, not everyone can do those kinds of things on their own, and sometimes need to just vent about it. It doesn't mean they aren't trying. I haven't a lot of sympathy for anyone, but I also don't beat people up for simply making a post somewhere to let off steam. I am sure from your tone on this and other posts that you have made that you have never hit bottom. I hope you never do, but then again, it might be a learning experience. I am self made. I paid my own way through school, made my own good life, and see no reason that others can't at least pull themselves up and prosper. I do know that not offering anything besides harsh criticism isn't helping anyone. Except maybe you.

TO-"Linda Bledsoe--from Bellevue Washington".

I NEVER wrecked Carmel Indiana "miracle economy".
BUT--,
"mayor" Brainard DID, with the control over him
by PedCor Inc's CEO--one Bruce Cordingley,
DID wreck, and are continuing to wreck, Carmel Indiana's economy.

Linda--when Brainard became "mayor" of Carmel
Indiana, on January 2nd, 1996, there were
HIGH HOPES that the corruption of former Mayor
Ted Johnson was finally over.
In January of 1996, the city-governmental DEBT
of Carmel Indiana was ONLY $23,400,000.00.

Today, after 13 years of Brainard's corrupt
MISRULE, that same Carmel Indiana city-governmental DEBT IS over $900,000,000.00.

Carmel Indiana has had a NET loss of nearly
10,000 people, and NET LOSS of over 18,000
well-paying jobs and careers, in the past eight years--BRAINARD YEARS!!

Linda Bledsoe:
I have NOT had any of my homes, three of them,
foreclosed upon here in Carmel Indiana.
Also:
I have owned and ran 5 businesses in
Carmel Indiana. All successful.

So I would admonish you, "Linda Bledsoe",
so shut the H..l up!!

Carmel Indiana has become a fiscal
"black hole", and worst has yet to come.

Carmel Indiana grew too fast, and in doing
so, mortgaged away future generations.

Brainard and Cordingley owe Carmel Indiana's
banks hundreds of millions of Dollars; they
can't re-pay the loans, so now HIGHER and
HIGHER TAXATION, and it will a fiscal and
financial 'barn burner'.

"Linda"--when you know the truth, and can write
in an intelligent manner, we'll talk.

Otherwise, shut the H---l up!!

In all due respect, I am not the one blaming my failures on outside agencies and governments. Maybe the mirror is where you should look while searching where you went wrong in life. You people can't fathom personal accountability, can you? It is never your fault...always someone else's fault. In my book, that makes you a complete and total failure and loser. You deserve your hardships.

Hey-"Linda Bledsoe"--Once again, and again, the more you write, the dumber you sound.

I have NO "hardships".

You are a TOTAL psycho b---h.
You are sad joke, as being another one more of
Brainard's brainless lackey dogs.

You, not I, MUST live with the fact on and because
your TOTAL, and Complete FAILURE!!!!

Brainard, a TOTAL COWARD, depends on moronic
douche bags like you, to do his continual dirty
work.

Brainard is accelerating his financial destruction
of Carmel Indiana.

I AM WINNING, but you, Linda, are LOSING, big-time!!

Live with it!!

1) I don't know anything about Brainerd (or Carmel for that matter). I don't live there and have never lived there.

2) Don't let your anger get the best of you. The fact that you hate your life has nothing to do with me. You should have tried harder or learned a different skill set. It isn't a mayor's fault or a county's fault or a city's fault (or certainly not my fault) that you have failed at life. It's YOUR fault that you have failed. Deal with it.

3) What is the deal with the whining, really? Tantrums are usually restricted to 3 year olds, not highly educated, articulate, classy individuals such as yourself. What gives?
