All you have to do is read about 3 paragraphs of the Charter.  (Apr 20, 2015 | post #15)

Morgantown Together as corrupt as it gets

Mountie, Been doing a bit of fact checking and noticed that you call Redmond a "Main Street guy" and pro business like either of those is a problem. Since businesses are the ones that pay B&O taxes, and that's what pays our bills, I'd think "pro business" might actually be a good thing...certainly something that sets several candidates apart from the anti business incumbent majority. None of the 4 candidates you seem to abhore has any apparent ties to Main Street except for Papandreas. I can understand why an intellect like yourself would hold an organization like Main Street in such disdain... Kids Day, Chocolate Lovers Day, Arts Walk, Art is Food..... What are they thinking? What kind of an a-hole would donate years of unpaid volunteer time to lead an organization that would bring those events to Morgantown? Oh yea, maybe you don't read the paper, or read at all, but aren't they the ones that raised all the money for the Farmers Market building? Lest we forget, isn't that the organization that is really responsible for the statewide ban on synthetic drugs that these corrupt Morgantown Together types are claiming as an accomplishment? Maybe you need to go do some fact checking of your own, sport. BTW, I believe the records might just show that the "puppet" from the 6th ward might be so interested in Motown that he didn't even vote in the last election. And, are his businesses legally registered in the city? Hmmmm....... Morgantown Together only recruits puppets. Just days before Hoffman popped up, Selin was literally going door to door downtown trying to recruit an activist puppet to replace Fike after he called them out as the self-serving, gerrymandering scum that they showed themselves to be over wards and bounds. It's ok to be ignorant, Townie. Have a glass of Kool-ade.  (Apr 20, 2015 | post #3)

MountieTownie is obviously a shill for the Morgantown Together PAC. I've seen no indication that the 4 you mention are business partners. Perhaps you'd expand on that. The charter is online. They are clearly in violation.  (Apr 20, 2015 | post #14)

Does the fact that 4 candidates are not affiliated with Morgantown Together or the current council make them a "group"? I sure hope not! They are the only 4 votes I'm casting. Screw the others. Bonner, Graham, Pappandreas and Redmond are the only ones with individual thoughts.  (Apr 18, 2015 | post #9)

Not surprisingly, they're at it again with 2 new puppets! Morgantown needs to wake up and realize that when you elect a PAC, there's only one voice on council. This group has proven they are just activist libtards!  (Apr 12, 2015 | post #1)

Westover Mayor Indicted

This seems like nothing compared to Morgantown councilman Bill Kawecki soliciting campaign donations from city employees, state and WVU employees by email as well as soliciting for a PAC that supports him. If Johnson is a felony, Kawecki certainly is! I'm sure all will get plea bargained. Politicians never find politicians guilty.  (Apr 12, 2015 | post #46)

Well, it certainly is true that a little knowledge is a terrible thing. Not to be rude but, if you don't know what you're talking about, just ask questions or stay silent. Your quotes of charter are correct but virtually everything else is pretty much wrong. I was critical of the gerrymandering allegations also even though the Motown Together PAC is scum, so I looked it up. The allegations are dead on. One councilman is guilty of 2state election violations...fact. The inappropriate emails are fact. Even the newspaper FOIA'd them. Do yourself a favor and look up stuff before you post.  (Apr 12, 2015 | post #7)

City manager of Morgantown

As somewhat of an "outsider ", it seems pretty clear to me that this council is the problem. Their focus seems to be on social issues and not the efficient running of the city...plain and simple. I'm not giving the manager a pass. If he'd just do his job and weed out the problem staffers, it'd be difficult for them to fire him for all of the positive outcomes. Maybe if he sat in some dirt, he'd grow a pair. I heard good things about the asst manager and figured he was chosen by the manager to offset his own short comings. You all elected a bunch of activists with an axe to grind instead of people that can guide the city. Don't see any change on the horizon for y'all any time soon. Your elections are determined by PAC's and this group sure isn't gonna vote to align municipal elections with the general elections cause then people WILL vote. Slimy, disingenuous pud-pullers SAY they want more voters, but will NEVER make it happen! Pity nobody calls them out.  (Mar 27, 2014 | post #5)

Anybody see council last nite? Think I saw most of it but had to travel... So, who's the mainstreet dude? Cold character! Chewed up Byrne and shi* him out! As I like to say, he took Byrne to school with no lunch money! Loved it when he said it was gonna get "uncomfortabl e" for the x-mayor.... A real Hallmark moment! Musta scared the crap outta Byrne cause he just stammered so MS dude couldn't talk! Priceless!! If it were up to me, I'd say we got mayor material in that guy. Get the sense there's more than meets the eye the way he handled that blowhard.....ex-sp ec-ops or state dept, if you catch my drift. Good thing Bane is un-opposed in this race cause he lost my vote last nite. Seems to have lost his balls now that he could actually win a vote. Tried awfully hard to put words in Herbsts mouth. Had high hopes for Herbst till she fell for Byrne and Selins shi* on Sunnyside up money pit and took away her motion. Really sad. Bane didn't help. I'm thinking that if anyone on council had a clue about finance, they wouldn't have put up with Moore as long as they did. Anybody else notice that smirk on Selins face? Is that arrogance or Walmart plastic surgery? Morgantown Together group is scary and stupid! They need to move to California where nobody worries about paying bills! Farthest "left" you can go in the US anyway! Later.....  (Mar 20, 2013 | post #375)

Is this your way of saying that you are inbred for four generations? Personally, I've seen no statements that indicate bigotry...other than your apparent bigotry. Try your best to date outside of your immediate family and livestock.  (Mar 13, 2013 | post #360)

I've been watching this forum for quite some time and am glad to see that people are starting to see what is going on here. It took years to get that senile bas**** off council that turned his back on the flag, and now we are finally getting rid of that worthless lawyer! If those liberal yahoos get their way, we could have mayor Jenny and deputy dog sham wow! One cant wash her hair and the other wont know what to say without Byrnes hand up her you-know-what moving her lips! If you think Morgantown is in financial ruin now, just wait till Morgantown together is in charge! Thank goodness I only live here part of the year!  (Mar 11, 2013 | post #352)
