HAPPY NEW YEARS!
Kay Garry's daughter appointed as Controller
Go figure.... Didn't see that one coming - hah.
Happy New Year to all of you, unless we hate you, you mean. You Troglodytes are all the same. I knew it wouldn't take you long to vilify the new mayor and anybody else you feel like beating up.
You prefer Baylor's blog, huh? Troglydyte yourself, lol! But Happy New Year anyways....
Did you all hear what they did to Matt Denison? That's some really dirty shit going on downtown.Happy New Years and I hope that each and everyone of you prays for our city.It's boots on the ground come 2012.
Daughter like Mother. I thought she was an attorney? We should have voted for Stumler.
Only two applied had any experienceat the job and one of those dropped out. There were not nearly enough applicants and salary could have been a factor.
New Albany’s future for 2012:Carnac the Magnificent predicts Connie Sipes.The question inside the envelope: Who is the next Mayor of New Albany?Ms Sipes and others gave Gahan WRONG advice and citizens give him a hard way to go - he didn't even see it coming!Eventually Gahan bows out, when he realizes he is way over his head and doesn't want to play their games. Sipes slides in to replace him without even having to run a campaign -- just in time for the Bicentennial!"May the bird of paradise fly up your nose!"HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! oh my......
May all of the unhappy, misguided, angry little people find peace in 2012.
Connie Sipes does not know anything about running a city and will never get a chance. She's done!!!!!Her gossip and Back stabbing has caught up with her she is a hypocrite.Watch out to to your face she is great behind it she needs to be taken out to the alley and taught a lesson.
Here it comes!!!!Jeff is trying to get rid of Bob Lane and Carl has convinced him of that. Your buddy Carl getting that.Adam Dickey coming in to continue living off the government with his wife down the hall. Favor to Cochran!!Bill I love ya but get the hell out the people have spoke.Michael Hall is coming in to the administration.
Happy and Prosperous New Year to you, too, Kitchen Table!
Maybe it's time for the truth to come out about Connie Sipes an Kay Garry. Surely someone in this town has dirt on these two.
You Betcha!Happy New Years everyone
Gahan is a disappointment and embarrassment to the whole city.Happy New Years
I keep telling people that Jeff Gahan (after seeing his appointments) won't be any better then England.Why would Gahan need the support of Sipes, Carl, Shane, Stan Robinson,Wilcox and Kay's daughter a douche like this to begin with is beyond me. None of these people don't have any true loyality to Jeff. For Gahan to embrace them with such ease is just disturbing. Come on Jeff, we had such high hope an expectations for you, you were the one who lied to all of us. What happened?
Look, 12:34, you ought to give Jeff Gahan a chance. There's not doubt he managed to surround himself with self-interested party hacks, but Jeff surely DID go into this whole thing with the best of intentions. Maybe, just maybe, he'll pull himself together, but remember this: You pushed Jeff into this KNOWING he's weak and as close to spineless as many before him. You wanted him and promoted him and a whole lot of people went out of their way at some personal and financial expense to support him. That many of us can't be completely stupid. I have some confidence that Jeff will realize he made a huge error in choosing a highly political transition team. He'll realize he's made VERY stupid errors in choosing people for this job or that. And he just might need some help from all of you (us) when he does realize it. He's chosen bad advisers. If you push him away, then there's no hope for any good advice. Let Jeff figure it out. He will. I have faith.
happy new year to all of you!
12:52 Mr. Gahan is 7 for 7. Make all the excuses for him you want. But, I'm not buying your: give him a chance BS. I'm with Denison: he has NO clue to what he's doing. Remember, the Mayor sets the tempo, but then again you know that...right?
Politics 101, you never put party over the citizens. That's why Bob Real was one of New Albany's best mayors.
Politics 101. ALWAYS put the Democratic Party over EVERYTHING and EVERYONE else, especially the citizens. Bob Real was mediocre in my opinion. England may be a crook, but I remember what a nothing Real was. Not that great but seemed to get along with everyone. And if your not loyal to the Democratic Party, your opinion is not worth listening to. While I agree with you about England being a crook and Gahan being a patsy for the England machine, I will always be a loyal Democrat. If I have the chance to hold public office, I'll consider the Democrats as my constituents and the Republicans as necessary evils and nothing more.
3:03, are you (pardon the pun) for REAL? What has the dem. Party here in NA ever done for you? For that matter, what has Obama done for you lately?
I think you've got it wrong, 3:03. It's the DEMOCRATS who are evil.
Good morning Mayor Gahan. So far, you've really screwed up. It's time for you to get your head out of the democrats a$$.
The third floor is a complete mess! People still do no know if they have their jobs or not. Work is laying on desks that needs to be done, but Mayor Gahan has fired people without hiring replacements or handing the work to others, so there it sets.
Let's face it: Carl runs this city, and he has for years.
Here's a story, every word of it true, that illustrates the mess this city is into:Matt Denison did not know if he had a job. Here's this guy who's done a great job, working all hours of the night for the city, sometimes without pay, and he had no idea of the fate of his job. Until Friday. Of course, there was conjecture on here and all around town as to whether or not he would have his job, but Matt doesn't waste his time getting on blogs. He's always been TOO BUSY WORKING!So, he really didn't know, and he hadn't been hearing the gossip, so he didn't wonder. Too much.Come Friday, he finds a note on his chair in an envelope. It's from our new OFFICIAL City Attorney (we still have the other one, folks--but it's on the QT). In the envelope was a letter from Robison saying the city no longer needed his services. He would no longer have his job.Needless to say, Matt's rug had been yanked right out from under him.Nice way to find out about your job, eh? And nice that, while one of our hardest-working city employees got the axe, others who are lazy and pretty much worthless (and who suck all the funding they can from city coffers) are still employed and it's being kept from the public!What we've done is elect Doug, Junior! Or, another Mayor Garner. Way to go, people.
Gahan is NO Doug England. England would have NEVER treated employees the way Gahan and his team have. Gahan has not told many people still if they have a job or not. A few workers just decided to not come in today because Gahan has not told them if they still have a job or not. Also, Gahan has hired many new people. The city has a budget. Where is the salary for all the newly created positions going to come from? Also, Gahan said he was not going to hire a deputy mayor, but he did, he just gave him a different title. And if you ask me, there have been nothing but very bad decisions!
What about these rumors that the Bookseller has been asked to come in and be the new chief of staff? I can't believe it, but I swear that I've heard it.
really? who is the dep mayor---what is robisons salary? (half of gibsons)---what is the controllers---Less than the last one---you do not know what you are talking about--bookseller would never be there.Denison was offered a job but it was not the one he wanted---so he is whining----HEWANTED TO BE DEPUTY MAYOR.
Hey, Matt was just a gopher. Ask his friend Carl.
10:18 Matt told me the same story other than a private citizen called him and told him he was let go. Shame on you Jeff, for doing that to a great employee. Has the job already went to your head?
10:44, you're right. England ran all over his employees and used them while keeping a certain circle in the loop about his money hoard. Ever seen England drunk? To know England is to know him drunk. Ever seen him chew out people just because he was on a binge and act nasty to them? If you didn't, then you must have been drunk too.Nasty creature, that England.
Gahan has hired this younng guy named Michael Hall as his Assistant. To me, that means (Deputy Mayor) since Gahan has a secretary as well. Stan has 2 assistants, since Gahan decided not to let Marcey Wiseman go and keep her on city staff as an assistant to Stan, who already has another assistant. That seems ridiculous. How can there be work for 4 people to do? You should only need one assistant each. Most if not all of the Boards/Commissions do NOT know who is on them. Some people still do NOT know if they have their job or not. It is a mess! How is any work going to get done until Gahan starts actually doing something and telling all of his staff (all city employees) what the hell is going on?
How can Gahan not let Marcey go? She's a real loser. I'm completely confused by his apparent lack of intellect. Or backbone. Who are Stan's two assistants? Marcey and who?
Yeah, Marcey is the laziest and is not very bright at all. Just read the City-Council Meeting minutes that she types, nothing but typos and misspelled words. She is so lazy that when she doesn't know a person's name she types Mr. ______, hahaa!! Stan also has Shane's old assistant, Kathy, as one of his assistants.
This is d-i-s-g-u-s-t-i-n-g. I don't have words to respond to this.
Wow. Y'all are more hateful than even I would have thought...I hope to goodness I don't actually know you or interact with you in real life. Kt would do well to take away the anonymous cloak. The little people are clearly sad, pathetic little beings.
8:51 sad? No, we're not sad, we are all of aware of what really is going on.I thought Marcey was going to law school. Yell, right! Same ole shit just a different day 'little Duggy' has NO clue.
You really defend yourself? Really? Nothing but a bully. I'll pray for you.
She does not have a job---that is a lie--she tried
I think it is amazing that before lunch on the first day of the year, the new administration had work piling up, and you knew about it!Explain how that is
What about the $6 million bond? I guess Shane's gonna get some extra money. And what's the council gonna do? Well, Shirley's gonna go along with whatever everyone else does. Will Shirley be part of the problem and not the solution. Will she stand with the Democrats, or stand for her constituents? Are we gonna have a Kum Ba Ya moment, or do the will of the people?
No more stipends for doing the refinancing---part of the job. What is gonna?
What is gonna what? Can't you speak English? I knew you troglodytes didn't know how to write.
You wee ones should leave the writing to the Bookseller. At least he uses proper grammar and correct punctuation.
Who is the bookseller?
The BOOKSELLER! What a joke! He might use proper grammar and correct punctuation, but he doesn't know all the modern rules, nor does he always speak properly. In addition to that, he's quick to insult and what he says borders on nutso-schitzo. The bookseller. Ha! Ha! You just made my night!
Seriously folks, what is going to happen to our city? De Tocqueville said people get the government they deserve and sad to say thanks to disinterest of the GOP in the city by the party chair, we have Gahan @ the helm when we could have had the entrepreneurial skills of Irv Stumler or the fiscal accountability expertise of Norm Melheiser if the county chair was not such an idiot. Nothing can help at this late date except for prayer.
Dave Matthews is a complete idiot. What else can we say?
I love reading all of your comments. Four morons who can't change a thing whining. Don't write your negative crap here...write it to the editor so more than you can see it.
Good, Jeff, you just keep on reading and reporting to you know who.
Does Jeff Gahan read KT? Let me tell you something, Jeff. It's not that you are doing bad things, it's that you have such bad people around you and you appear to be being so secretive. It's not good. It's shaking our confidence. Please get rid of your close advisors and go back to your base.
And the four are Roger, Jeff, Randy and Kate. You all take turns.
And while your at it why don;t YOU write your letters to the edoitor instead of getting on blogs and ruining them?
Sorry for the typos. I know they offend you.
Tuesday's Board of Works meeting was a disaster. Only one who showed up was Sue Ellen and Dept. heads. What happen to our new mayor he was a NO show. Now tell me he has the right people around him. You can always purchase a manual called "How to be a mayor for dummies!" Good grief--Louise, we're in big trouble.
The Democrat Party has went to hell in a hand basket thanks to John Wilcox.
And several others too.
Tribune January 6, 2012 Gahan joins New Albany Sewer Board - Mayor to push for end of EMC oversight of utility:http://newsandtribune.com/x191089592/Gahan-joins-New-Albany-Sewer-BoardCan the "city" produce all the paperwork and testing for EPA? More importantly, can the "city" protect citizens from pollution?Yes, "Good grief--Louise, we're in big trouble."
Talk about Dumb & Dumber. Gahan & Gibson don't know sh@t about sewers. Gahan should have put Bill Utz and Larry Kochert on that board at least they know what the hell their doing.EPA won't give Gahan time to learn it in fact many of us have spent years looking at this. There are only a hand full in New Albany that can understand sewers.Mr. Gahan, this is NOT a teachable moment either.Why didn't he bring sanitation in house...that makes way more sense.The only thing I see good in the sewer idea is: if Gibson screws up he will go to prison you don't screw with EPA and he's not the sharpest tool in the box or attorney in New Albany. He's definitely the first piggy to the trough, too!So much for Gibson and Carl out of a job. That was the biggest campaign "lie" Gahan made. That my friends will cost him (Gahan) dearly!And hear, we didn't think things could get any worse...God, help our city, were doomed at this rate.
Next time you should give him two beers
Both are coming back in house (sanitation too, but their contract is not up yet). And he did lie. He was being too nice about why he went on the sewer board. There is some corruption there among certain members. He must know it.
I went to the Board of Works meeting Tuesday to get a permit and to the City Offices. One member of the BOW was present / nothing got done. Nobody at the City information desk. See, Gahan is already saving the city money by not hiring anybody to work. At the rate he's going he will still be hiring staff in July just in time for the Riverfront celebration...oh, wait...we won't have that either. Way to go Jeff!
Well, Shane Gibson being on "contract" for anything spells trouble. If he's "on contract," then he's not a "city employee," is he? If he's not a city employee, then the rag we call the News and Tribune can't report him as the top-paid city employee. But, believe me, people, Gibson WILL rake in a lot of his money, and his wife will spend it freely and his kids will still annoy us all with their running around all over the place at meetings and events. They need to leave the nasty little creatures at home. Oh, let them STAY home. That's even better. But before that, they need to pay the taxpayers back their money.You don't even want to hear from me on Jeff Gahan. I called and called and Gahan never once called me. He knows darned good and well that I am more than qualified for the job, but he has apparently chosen to stick with England hacks. It looks to me like we've done nothing but shuffle the same old people around, and I have half a mind to move out of New Albany. For years, I have lived close enough to walk to the City-County Building. But, no, I'm ignored and overlooked. This is the last time I'm writing on here so I made it long. Good-bye idiots.
Bitter much? "Poor me!" much? And, who insults someone's kids? That's just low class.
I agree with them. Those kids are holy terrors. Pretty rude. I would say thats an insult to the parents.
5:44 England renewed the sanitation company even though it's NOT up until the end of 2012. So where do you get it is going to be ran by the city once again? We gave them all our trucks and equipment how can we afford anything?
So golden boy is going to be our sewer attorney. God helps us, he'll have us in deep doo doo over his incompendence. Maybe (fat a$$ Marcey) can help him--out.
12:08 MS. BAIRD WILL VOTE HOW EVER THEY WANT. DOESN'T SHE GET IT? SHE ONLY GOT ELECTED TO KEEP ENGLAND OFF THE COUNCIL.
What's this I read about Jeff Gahan appointing himself to the Sewer Board? Do you all realize that's basically a way he just gave himself a raise? It's not big bucks ($7,500), but it's still a raise. Anybody remember the hue and cry that kept England off the Sewer Board (although he found other ways to find his money)? As for Gibson, he's the conduit between England and the money. This is not rumor, it's true. You see, they basically engage in mutual gratification, those in the inner circle. Everybody knows it.
Just get over it. Your man is just the head of the newest England administration.
Scary, ain't it?
