In desperation and reflecting the tactics of the past Democratic Clique their successors from the farm system have resorted to spreading the lie that Republicans are going to privatize town services.  It leaves Republicans with little more than to fall back on the facts.

 

Street Department

With republican Paul Fetters blessing and working in conjunction with Brad Cummings dramatic cost reductions have been achieved while increasing training and services.  Take the trash pickup service.  Several routes have been taken away from a private company and are now performed by the Street Department resulting in savings of thousands.

 

Police Department

With Republican Tim Hauber working with Chief Mark Palmer our police force has become the standard of excellence not just in the county but it the area.  They have increased the number officers without increasing the cost via grants. In todays world more than ever they have received critical and much needed training, training they've never received before.

 

Summation

Obviously only a fools with mess with resounding success - - which reminds me of something.

 

Wastewater/Sewer Department

Right at 20 some years ago 6 Democrats including Charlie King voted to privatize this department and operation.  Interesting isn't it.  Perhaps they need to look in the mirror.  Wisely the council brought it back under the towns control.  Moreover, though not directly r3espsonbile as an individual, Paul Fetter urged a cost/benefit review of this operation in a work session for the council.

 

Back to Basics

Now can we focus on what's important starting with district/fair voting and a town manage of substance?

Thankfully I’ll be away and won’t have enlighten and to correct you.

You make an assumption I don’t like Democrats.  If you knew who I am you’d be surprised and know that isn’t true. 

I’m sure you don’t know the Democrats acquiesced to Fetter and Hauber naming Brad Cummings and Mark Palmer to their positions to allow the previous street department manager to retain his job and prevent a media hubbub.  Credit the Republicans for some progress.

Lastly are you into modern math?  6 Democrats of 7 councilmen, among them Charlie King, voted to PRIVATIZE the wastewater department.

Again let’s stop the lies going around about Republicans wanting to privatize town departments and place the spotlight on significant subjects providing positive impact such as having a town manager and district voting.

By now you know what I said was true.  

 

You're also ignoring the topic as the recent publication of a Democratic newsletter again states Republicans want to privatize departments.  It's a lie and you know it.  Will you admit to it and ask the publisher to stop spreading lies or will you do anything to win.

 

Again read my first statement on this topic pointing out again, factually, that Democrats were the last ones to privatize a town department.

With my sadly inadiquit education I was able to to some research, like you are always talking about doing and gathered some facts, also like you like to request of others. I think he is talking about "The Clarksville Democrat" publication, Vol. 1 No.4, it is sent to residents of Clarksville who have a mailing address, maybe only to registered voters who have mailing addresses. The title of the story is "You can make a difference in this election". Paragraph 3(i think they are called paragraphs), the first sentence reads "There are people on opposing tickets  who have stated publicly that they want to privatize much of government". Now that I have done your research maybe you can figure it out and give Clarksville your take on this.

The folks who put out "The Clarksville Democrat" must pick and choose who to send the newsletter to. My family and I live in Clarksville, have a Clarksville mailing address,  and there are several registered voters in our household but I can't remember ever receiving this newsletter.

  The title of the story is "You can make a difference in this election". Paragraph 3(i think they are called paragraphs), the first sentence reads "There are people on opposing tickets  who have stated publicly that they want to privatize much of government". 

 

The last privatization that was done was to privatize the operation of our sewer treatment plant...by the Democrats.  Since a couple of Republicans have been on the council, the sewer plant operation has been un-privatized (is that a word?), and much of our contracted garbage collection has been taken back by the town.

 

Unfortunately, the writer of the article in the mailer surely knows his statement is false but chose to print it anyway...that shows desperation, and a win-at-any-cost attitude.  Too bad.

Tom you are the one looking desperate.  It takes 4 votes to 

 

get something done or undone as you say.

 

Two people can not do anything, please stop selling us this

 

untruth that 2 republicans did this.

 

The council (4 or more) gets the praise or the blame.

The sewer plant was not un-privatized by only 2 people. It was by 2 people and the embarrassment 20 plus years of the gang not having any oversite of certain operations. Sleepy you may be new Clarksville and to the operations of the town boards in the past, but you need to learn about it and understand why there was such a big change 4 years ago. Starting 4 years ago town board action were finally brought out of the backroom and into public site. That is the reason for the need to be NEW DEMOCRATS, and the reason old ones didn't run again. If it weren't for the 2 votes you keep talking about, there would have been no changes. There weren't for 20 years before, so why now? There now were people standing by that weren't your partners in fleecing the town. 2 people are the force behind the great changes that have been made in the past 4 years.

Sleepy ask your guy what he would do at his work if 100's of thousands of dollars were stolen at his work under his watch? Would there be an internal investigation? Would somebody lose their job? Would he lose his job? Would he be responsible for the money not recovered? Would anyone? But at a town I guess its looked at like its not really your money, so lets just act like it didn't happen. The only action taken was by people from outside Clarksville and only on the major issues. Nothing was done to make sure it didn't happen again or to see who else was part of it. Something that big over so many years, one person? Really??? No one else knew or was involved? Ask around. See if your contacts can help. It good to know history to help prevent repeating it. This history changed the name Democrat in Clarksville. Will your guys make things even better or go back to the old days. Some  of the New Democrats were on watch during those years, will they know what to look for now? Did they then? The voters of Clarksville were finally mad enough for a change. Do they still remember?

I never said that it could.  I only said it did not happen until 2 Repubs were on the council.

Go back and re-read what I posted verrry slooowly.  :laugh:   I did not say that 2 Republicans did it. I only said that it did not happen until 2 Repubs were elected to the council.  Please don't continue to intentionally distort what I post.  :dry:  

 

The council (4 or more) gets the praise or the blame.

 

Yes, of course.  Which 4?

Tom

 

Using your logic I could say the following.

 

1. We never had a beautiful town Hall until democrats came in.

2. We never had a beautiful town pool until democrats came in.

3. We never had a beautiful little league until democrats came in.

4. We never had 6 million in the insurance account until democrats came in.

5. Beautiful parks and golf courses not until democrats came in.

6. Vetrans parkway not until democrats came in.

 

Need I say more.

 

The truth is the Truth Tom D.

Clarksville is a Great Place.
