I hope the Chief Petitioner runs for office ASAP, we need his leadership. Oh wait, will he backstab and criticize himself then? He’s got my vote and that will be fun to see, lol.

And meanwhile more and more filth tied to Ridgeway and Owen keeps rising to the surface.

When will Clay County finally be rid of these two?
When will they ever have to pay for their misdeeds?

Luann wont lose. Gene is leaving and taking his retirements to the bank. Then we will have Carpenter, Nolte and Ridgeway. Carpenter hates Nolte so back to the drawing board.


People backstabbed by the Chief Petitioner include the people who signed the petition. The state auditor only has a certain time to complete the audit. It’s about over folks.

Other folks backstabbed by him is his employer for not doing his job. Sarah Mills, Corlew, Jolie Justus, Trump, Blunt, Graves and the list goes on and on....

Tell the truth Byron

Roger, you sound like a retard, to me. (Probably not your real name, probably the name of someone you don't like.)

I have never lied on this blog.

When you call me a liar, you are lying.

Ok, tell the truth Byron. Was a naked picture of your sister hanging in the Mayor’s bathroom?

Jason Withington said...

people who signed the petition? Who voted to bring a lawsuit against the State Auditor to slowdown the audit?

his employer for not doing his job: been there 12 years. 2 times I was ranked in the top 5% of company and 2 times in the top 10%. I've also won the individual contributor award and last year I was nominated for the gold star award. I think they are pretty happy with me.

Sarah Mills, Corlew, Jolie Justus, Trump, Blunt, Graves and the list goes on and on.... voted for Trump and Blunt. I don't live in Graves district but voted for the Republican instead of Cleaver. I voted for Jolie in the general. Planned on supporting her in the primary but she dropped out and by the time she got back in I had told Phil Glynn I would support him. You may not be much at keeping your word but I am.

As for Mills and Corlew not sure how I stabbed them in the back. Why because i voted for Arthur and Rogers? Had I voted for Mills and Corlew would I have been stabbing Arthur and Rogers in the back?

Let’s see here CP, you openly supported the Libertarian- Gary something....yah, your company awards, lol, BS.

Your twin says you stab your family in the back all the time....

But yah, you are perfect, according to you and that and a nickel won’t buy you a cup of java - thanks for antagonizing the commission so they ran out the clock.

Next time you want to clean up a government, try taking a bath and lowering your voice, squeak squeak squeak

I'm sure Blunt could care less what I think. As far as my brother and mother go, some people have a hard time accepting it when someone finally stands up for their self but thank you for taking an interest in myself and family. Its really not that interesting.

I have had enough of this county's corruption. I'm mad as hell and We not going to take it anymore.
I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s corruption. Everybody’s staying quiet, scared of losing their job if they spill the beans on Owens and Ridgeway. Taxes are being wasted, County is going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Crooks are are running wild in the county annex and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our county officials is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had a $600 coffee maker and sixty-three audits that were buried, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be.To hell with $600 coffee makers and county officials trading insider information to corrupt developers.I'm am running against Gene Owen in 2020. To hell with $600 coffee makers and county officials trading insider information to corrupt developers. Old dude has got to GO!
