Is Linda Quinn Working in City Hall?

I was shocked when I was in city hall today paying my municipal service bill and saw Linda Quinn in an office and appeared to be working. Is she working in City Hall now? Did Dave Casebolt give her access to work from city hall?  (May 28, 2013 | post #1)

Craig you are you talking to? You people are really getting paranoid. Looks like your getting out just in time. I hear that Dave Casebolt has given away city services without council approval. Guess we will see where that leads.  (Feb 3, 2013 | post #25)

Craig Matthews is a Liar - States Nitro is his LEGAL address

I am not Tifney Terry. She may very well be an idiot. But don't refer me to her. As for you calling someone an idiot CRAIG and yes STU PIDASSO you are CRAIG. You can own two homes. But Craig does not own his parents home. Just because he uses their address does not mean he is living there. He has been living with his girlfriend who just gave birth to their daughter. Oh let me correct myself he actually married her two or three days before the child was born. What a man. Craig doesn't actually own any homes. The home he lives in with his girlfriend is in her name not his. You can consider a place your home unless you live there. Craig has not been living with his parents for over a year now. But what difference does it make now HE IS GONE BIG BOY IS GONE.  (Feb 3, 2013 | post #6)

Craig Matthews is a Liar - States Nitro is his LEGAL address

the following email was sent from Nitro Councilman Craig Matthews in response to an email to members of council calling him out for serving on council while he lived outside the city limits with his girlfriend: Ma'am, my legal residence is 110 DuPont Ave. If you have proof it is not please report it to the proper authorities. It is obvious who is behind this and all I can say is its a shame you have nothing better to do with your life than make accusations from behind your keyboard. Again, I'm sure there are some authorities you can report this to with your "proof" and I will be happy to answer my residential status questions to them. Again, so sorry your life has sunken so low that this is all you have left to do.... Take Care He states the Dupont Avenue address is his LEGAL address. I found it interesting when I saw the email that it does not say the address where he lives. But it is his LEGAL address. All that means is where he gets his mail. Doesn't mean that is where he lives. I can see that big bafoon rationalizing it in his mind that since his legal address was Nitro it doesn't matter where he was living.  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #1)

Laurie Elkins - Councilwoman and Liar

Now the person did admit to Laurie Elkins the hotmail email address she used was not set up with her name. She did not want to be involved. I can imagine that the media is not surprised when the get information anonymously by people who choose not to be identified. And who would want to be identified in Nitro. When you have ignorant women like Laurie Elkins who want to focus on the person bringing the information forward and ignore the fact she is friends with someone who has defrauded the public.  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #12)

Laurie Elkins - Councilwoman and Liar

Then she goes out on the city of nitro Dave Casebolt facebook page and made her post that she was blocking the person she was communicating with becasue they were harassing her. It seems to me that Ms. Elkins was the one harassing. It seems to me any elected official who knew what they were doing would have simply replied thanking the citizen even though they did not know who they were instead of trying to smear them or accuse them of being someone else. Ms. Elkins just so you know for future reference you could have avoided all the lies and making yourself look like a raving idiot by simply stating, "Thank you for your concern. I am sure that your information is incorrect but I will be happy to ask councilman Matthews about this before the council meeting. Thank you again for taking the time to ask a question about that is most likely on the mind of many due to the article ran in the paper. Have a nice day." But I don't think Laurie Elkins knows how to be a diplomat. She doesn't know how to respond to someone without getting down and Jerry Springer about it. I remember her display in the parking lot after a council meeting screaming and cussing like a wild woman.  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #11)

Laurie Elkins - Councilwoman and Liar

then the following was sent in response: Ms. Elkins, My cousin is a fire fighter in Virginia not West Virginia. East Bank doesn't have a fire department they do have a volunteer department. I do know Tifney but am not aware of any comments she has made in any form about this issue. I did ask her to send an email to Rusty Marks at the WV Gazette if that is the verbatim comments you are talking about she may have used my information from the email I sent to her. Because I was really not sure who to send my email to. When I saw that she got a result I followed up with Mr. Marks myself. I didn't realize how easy it was to send information to the media and that you can send it yourself and they will follow up. You call my information one sided. What other side is there on this Ms. Elkins? Nitro is nothing but one sided politics I realize this and that there is no debate in Nitro due to the low level political infighting. There is no low to low in Nitro. I have friends who have been personally run over by the low level politics that is Nitro. I don't know if Tifney has a cousin who volunteers on the East Bank Volunteer Department or not. What difference does it make if she does. I understand you are suppose to be an educated woman. If so then take a step back and see how one sided you are in your actions on council. I think you were a little one sided when A.J. Shinn was reprimanded for coming to work late. Now with that being supported by council he is now not even bothering to respond to calls. I understand a resident called 911 in cardiac arrest and Mr. Shinn was to busy sleeping to even be bothered to get out of bed and respond. I also understand this is not an isolated incident. Will your husband be addressing this matter? I would hope so with the public safety issue it creates.  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #10)

then Laurie Elkins responded with: Ms. Abshire, your comments mirror conversations I have seen posted by none other than Tifney terry-franks herself, many comments are verbatim, so with all due respect, I beg to differ that you have nothing personal against me or my husband and have not met me. The problem with your information is that it is completely one sided, and by refusing to meet with me and clarify any allegations, my inclination of who this is even more solid. If you have credible sources and credible information, I am sure we will be hearing from someone besides you very soon. Also, I am pretty sure Tifney Terry franks has a cousin on east bank Fire department. Another interesting coincidence. And you are correct, you really do not know my husband or I either one and you should think of that when you speak of us or lay judgement.  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #9)

then the following was the reply: Ms. Elkins, I said I would forward you the audio. It is not on a file on my computer. I will have a copy made for you and send it to you. It is a meeting that Craig Matthews participated in. As I said previously I know that the position of Chief is a tested position and your husband tested and was at the top of the two other testing. But the only other candidate who could have taken the position didn't even want it and you husband had what 30 plus seniority points. No way the third person testing was going to even be close. So it was a no brainer that your husband would be the next chief. I don't know your husband but I would venture to say he is not a complete idiot. He would have had to have failed the test miserably in order not to be awarded the position. My cousin is a fire fighter so I know how it works. I am saying that Craig Matthews was doing things to interefere with the running of the fire department. After all how long did Ernie Hedrick works on shifts before he retired. That is just one example. This was a joke. Especially in light of the fact that once your husband was named chief. POW all of a sudden no reason for the chief to be on shift. I guess the reason council felt the former chief should be on shift just didn't matter any more. I realize that you were not on council when this action was taken. But your husband was in the department and I am sure since you are on council now you kept yourself up to speed on council actions involving the fire department.  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #8)

then she replied with the following: "Ms Abshire" could you please go ahead and send the audio of Councilman Matthews stating he was "going to continue his attacks on the fire department until Ernie leaves" so we verify its authenticity. Also, any information you have to substantiate your allegations that Councilman Matthews forced the former fire chief out of his job so my husband could get the position. I am interested to see this, especially since it is a tested position. Sincerely, Laurie Elkins.  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #7)

then the following was the reply: Ms. Elkins, You live in Nitro. I am sure you know people who live on Dupont Avenue. I believe there is even a city employee who lives within view of Craig Matthews parents. I am not a Nitro resident and never said I was. This accusation is not a baseless one. I realize your husbands position is a tested one. I have nothing against you or your husband as I really do not know either of you. But I do know the former Chief Hedrick. He is an honest and good man. He didn't deserve to have games played with the fire deparment by elected officials. Like I said when I heard Craig Matthews on the audio talking about the conditions and keeping them that way until, "Ernie was gone." I did not think it was right. I am going to forward that audio to you as I want you to hear it. Because with the next group of elected officials could just as easily turn their focus on your husband. I would be willing to bet you would not like your husband to be treated as the former fire chief was. It is curious how all of a sudden the reason council put the former chief on shift was no longer an issue once your husband became chief. I think that is something elected officials tend to forget. Elected officials come and they go. It is the employees that keep a city or any government working and the city will be going long after they are gone. Again, I have no desire to meet you. The information and the facts stand on their own. You can either do the right thing or not. You can turn your head and look the other way and pretend that Craig was living in Nitro when every other rationale person knows he was living with his girlfriend in Hurricane.  (Feb 2, 2013 | post #6)

She then responds with the following: Ms. Abshire, I am not trying to destroy the messenger, simply offering you a resolution to your concerns. As you know, any credible researcher checks the sources of their information and determines whether or not they are credible. That is what I, Laurie Elkins, am doing. If you are willing to come forward with your information, I am willing to look into it. Otherwise, I am unable to assist you in this matter. The issue with your city of residence is that you represented yourself as a Nitro citizen, which you now say you are not. Please, just be honest in your comments and do not misrepresent yourself and throw out baseless allegations that attack people I know and work with. As for my husband, his position as fire chief is a tested position, not an appointed position, and I have no influence on his schedule. Although you clearly seem to have some personal issue with both my husband and I, I am at a loss as to why, since I do not personally know any "Karen Abshire".
