While I'm waiting for the vid to upload, I'm going to repost the comment that will get posted with the vid, as follows:
On full display--how much a surgeon knows about civil engineering. As in, nada. Yet it's his main platform plank. Go figure. He clearly didn't. Bottom line: Enid can't afford his big spender habits or ignorance, as Enid's inner city streets testifyBookies are now taking bets on who the Eagle is gonna endorse for Ward 5. Easy win on that, at considerable odds--I'll bet that the Eagle is that predictable.
The Ward 5 incumbent flatters herself when she tells people that it's all about just her. It's as much about a Commission cartel voting to support Vanhooser's irresponsible schemes as it is about foolish expensive Ferris wheel fantasies. As I've told supporters--Ron Janzen shouldn't be running unopposed, either.
It's a fact--Enid now has an inner city and Ward 5 is an inner city Ward, but it takes other Commissioners to agree to raid the kitty. We need to stop the looting--it's taxpayer pockets they're picking.
Mayor Shewey is correct when he says that growing the retail sector is the answer, and I would add to that, downtown retail, something that Mainstreet Enid has failed to promote under current leadership and it's something that the Ward 5 incumbent moved to Meadowlake Park that which had been a downtown tradition. Enid needs to get the broom out and clean Commission house. I can't imagine Integris paying a surgeon to spend his time in city hall. Some other surgeon must be carrying Vanhooser's freight because he doesn't seem to be carrying his own.
Here we go...it's finally posted...
