  1. Are Liberals, Democrats, LGBTQ, America Haters, Trump Haters, Environmental wackos, Communists, and other assorted mentally ill folks invited?

  2. Does this event require a permit..??..surely AQD will see that it issued without the slightest delay…if required….and if the assembly needs to vote on anything Barbara Jones can quickly count he votes and report the results….maybe even fix the results if need be..!!

  3. @Alvin:
    You most certainly are invited. So are all of your friends.
    Please keep it cordial. No one likes to see any events disrupted with unnecessary shenanigans.
    Remember, there is a difference between writing something snarky on a web site, and disrupting a public event. I am sure you would be upset if Forrest Dunbar had won, and some people made a ruckus at his swearing in.
    Remember, unity and cooperation are important, even if the Mayoral Candidate you did not support won.

  4. Thanx for the much appreciated updates. The latest but probably not the last unelected mayoral scud is payment process for AWWU. Their goal is inhibiting acceptance of funds usually prepayments. Their plan is to make an appointment to pay a bill. Bologna! You get those doors open and serve the public AND make sure their accountS show the payments to the correct accounts. TAKE PAYMENTS OVER THE PHONE. Any way the customer wants to pay you accommodate it. This is not fricken CAlifornia. If you have asperger syndrome get out Of the way and let someone else handle IT. YOUR RECALCITRANCE IS OVER.

  5. Let’s have NO shenanigans on our part.. We are celebrating our new mayor that WE helped elect. The people listed in the above ALVIN TEAGUE’s comment are already suffering their defeat. If they plan to instigate anything, let them pay for it, but don’t aggravate them.

  6. Due to the late opening after being shut down, this will probably be “our” only 4th of July-type celebration.. It takes years and years for any type of planning for the 4th which we did not have. Does anybody know if there will be any type of a 4th July celebrations.?? being on Sunday..??

  7. I hope the former “administration” has their moving trucks reserved. They don’t need to be taking their crazy ideas to the state. They just need to git on out of here and take their crazy ways with thum!

  8. Bean’s Cafe, huh? That tells me all I need to know about why he’s pushing yet another McShelter down people’s throats. The only reason the Sullivan shelter was “successful” was due to Lisa Sauder’s success in controlling the narrative with media outlets too gutless to bother with independent fact-checking. That and its role as a conduit to launder “free” federal money.
