Well, well, well. Where do we start?
A handful of you people — “the click” — got together and tried your best to keep Darlene Burcham and failed. When you couldn’t do that, you tried to get rid of (Mayor) Jeff (Irvine), so you can get one of your own in there.
It is the same few people writing letters in the paper. You are sounding like a broken record.
We want to know how you few people find the time to do this, always stirring up trouble?
How do you lay your heads down at night and sleep knowing what you do?
One of these people complained about Jeff Irvine’s wife, Terry, cleaning down at the armory and getting paid. This person works downtown. We bet she is getting paid for working down there and doesn’t do that for nothing — plus ran for town council twice and lost.
If anybody has a problem, all you have to do is ask Jeff’s opinion and he will do his best in checking things out.
We don’t recall in the past any mayor or town councilman coming to people’s houses on their own time to check problems out, but Jeff does come and take time to answer if there is a problem.
As for Pam Marshall hurting feelings, what about Jeff’s feelings? You sure don’t care about his. Pam Marshall is right. You are bullying Jeff and trying a couple of others.
You sound like a bunch of kids. In fact, kids act better. They make up, go on and forget about it. You’ll keep on and on and on, like a broken record.
This world is such a mess, and all you want to do is complain. If you don’t like it here, move. I’m sure you will find something there to complain about, also.
If these people really cared about the town of Clifton Forge, they would work together with everyone for the good of the town, instead of caring about their own agenda.
Come election time this fall, we hope the voters of Clifton Forge will make up their own minds who to vote for and not let these few people pull the wool over your eyes.
