Citizens of Mitchell, Prove Me Wrong…

Anonymous posted a comment a bit ago that I agree with. In the final paragraph, he or she says:

EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE WHEN VOTING FOR THE DEMOCRATS. What Butch is hoping for is the he’ll get more votes than the other two running against him. But if we all vote for Jason then we can shove Butch out of the way early!!!! We know we need to get rid of RANDY PHELIX, this will be the easiest way to do it!

While I agree that (at least the first part of) this is true and wish that it would, it’s just not going to happen… (how is voting for Jason going to get rid of Defective Flex, by the way?)

Danny Terrell has the Republican ticket wrapped up, simple as that. While I wish that Jason Delaney or James Brown could win the Dem’s nod, I don’t think it’s going to happen. Butch will win the primary for the Dems, and then the citizens of Mitchell will have to choose between Danny Terrell and Butch Chastain in November.

I’ll be out of town when the elections take place (leaving for San Diego Saturday morning), but I’ll be following the results Tuesday evening to see what happens.

Now, in the words of Monty Hall, let’s make a deal…

If Butch Chastain DOES NOT win the Democrat’s nod for the fall, I will personally donate five hundred dollars ($500) to a Mitchell organization chosen by the readers of this site… perhaps it will be for the July fireworks display, maybe the local Boy Scout/Girl Scout troops, whatever. If this happens, I’ll come up with a list of organizations and allow you to cast your vote for who the money should go to.

Mayor Chastain will win the Democratic nomination for the November election. Prove me wrong and I’ll give up $500.

Go out and vote this coming Tuesday. The citizens of Mitchell are depending on you.

UPDATE: Anyone else want to contribute or match me? =)

Did you know that the last act the Mitchell PD did in the Southern Indiana Task Force was to file charges against Nathon Hill for running a common Nuiance( a Felony). If you remember, he was the one renting the mobile home of Tom Cox, where they kicked the door in. Mitchell PD filed the charges with the Lawrence County Prosecutors office right before being kicked out of the task force. I beleive that the charges were a result of the law suit that Cox has against the City of Mitchell for $830. Shame on the Lawrence Countys new prosecutor for becoming involved in the matter. The city of Mitchell has hired an attorney out of Terre Haute to defend them on this suit. I would guess that the lawyer will charge about $300 per hour that he spends on this case. There for, Mitchell will pay well over $1500 on a case that involves $830 and change. Is this good business or is it a way that the city usually does business? Was this a choice made by the mayor or the city council?? Was the city council even notified on the decision??? I never saw it discussed at a meeting, or was it discussed behind closed doors which is a violation of law. Seems to me that the good citizens of Mitchell are paying for alot of Bull that could go better to the water problems!!!!

No need to apologize, I agree 100%. I'm a Democrat, just ask my die-hard Republican grandmother (who has dubbed me her "favorite jackass"). To be honest, if this were November and it was Mr. Terrell on the republican ticket, I'd pick him over any of the Democratic candidates -- it's nothing against any of them, I just don't know enough about them. -- Webmaster, Mitchell News

Barry, the one who couldn't be bothered to at least don a suit to the forum? I seem to remember that the Bedford Times-Mail also asked a number of questions of all the candidates (after the forums) to which he never bothered to reply? At the forum, he was asked what makes him uniquely qualified to be mayor. His answer revolved around the fact that he is a father. I think he has trouble understanding the phrase "uniquely qualified". As an individual, I like Barry. For mayor? Nah. -- Webmaster, Mitchell News

Um, I'm a Democrat. Sorry, I'm just way too informed to be a Republican. :P -- Webmaster, Mitchell News
