Thank you, Mr. Riel for coming on as your real name if that is truly it as you like to play the game here on Bradford Today, in my opinion you are a very mean spirited man who makes personal attacks on anyone who disagrees with you. I have witnessed your unprofessionalism and mean spiritedness at the city council meetings. Your comment makes very little sense. "I don't post of here very often as it makes little sense arguing with negative people using fake names who do not know what they are talking about most of the time."
Please explain the city budget and were does the other 65% of the budget comes from especially if not from tax dollars. The reil insult here, in my opinion, is you treat people like their stupid. Well the joke is on you as always. Is that you Santa Claus! Please don't send the alter egos Imgus or Newt for a response, it is old. Just saying.
I decided to respond to this topic primarily due to 2 of the blatant falsehoods or lies that were posted. The first being Stony's title for this discussion. He posted the erroneous title on purpose shortly after an Era article about the new budget not being based on a tax increase. The second lie was made by Billy the Kid that "Each resident owes $1100.00 on this years budget." Not true either.
Although I did respond this time, actions or lies like the 2 I just pointed out are why I don't normally respond. What's the sense of trying to explain anything to people who hide behind a computer name and intentionally post things that are not true? I apologize for stooping to their level. I guess you think telling the truth to correct lies somehow implies people being called stupid?
Stony, Patton, Bill Hallock, Tom Perry, Billy the Kid, Jim Connelly, Landlord, Citizen and others have gone out of their way to make personal attacks against me, my family members and other elected officials on this site, on other sites and in public. Some of them have also gone after at least 4 or 5 members on BT who they have accused of being me or supporting me. Patton, I suggest you look in the mirror and at your circle of accomplices before you throw stones.
You accuse me of being mean spirited and unprofessional at City Council meetings. The first meeting you attended as of late was with Mr. James Connelly Jr. He was rude, impolite, disrespectful, disruptive...He kept interrupting when I would try to respond and barged out of the meeting like a spoiled child denied a new toy. You also attended the next meeting without incident, thanking the Police Department for a presentation made at Beacon Light that day. I am missing what you claim to have witnessed at these meetings.
If you want a circus at public meetings, go to the Foster Township meetings. I hear Tom Perry and Bill Hallock put on quite a show. Connelly has told people that Hallock goes and speaks at all these meetings to get his name in the paper because he is going to run for supervisor. The joke with that is that most people see him for what he really is, a person who has spread lies and made false statements about muncipal matters. The word is out for sure. Just because it isn't posted yet on the internet or a facebook page based on misinformation doesn't mean the truth about him hasn't spread rapidly. Bill Hallock is bad for Foster Township is the word going around. Good luck with that election.
Mr. Patton, as I said before, I would be more than happy to meet with you personally to discuss any City matters. I will do my best to not respond to your games on here. I am only a phone call away.
