Baseless accusations? Did you watch the video?

Hey Charlie…..Carol's right on…..watch the videos….come to theRead Moremeetings… ..they are attack dogs. They sit by the podium and make snide remarks just loud enough for the person at the podium to hear. They shoot dirty looks and intimidate anyone who wants to approach the podium with an opposing view. They chuckle, laugh and smirk like school children while residents express their opinions and concerns. They name call, accuse and call out other innocent parties by name. I think their behavior is disgusting and they are hateful individuals. I'm glad to see they are finally being exposed for what they are after YEARS of intimidation at many meetings in our community. Parks, Planning and Zoning, Zoning Board of Appeals, Paint Creek Trailway's Commission and yes the Board of Trustees. Everyone needs to take a stand against them and their constant intimidation and threats and chastise Ms. Beth Markel for her lawsuit against the parks which we are all going to have to pay for to defend because it is most frivolous and petty. I wish they would move!!

Hello Whereisthechange? Are you speaking to me, when you address me as Charlie? Because I wouldRead Morenev er think of addressing you as Witch, because that would just be rude. Just a sec, isn’t that what you just claimed the Markel’s were? Now if you want to see what rude really is, you should watch the Board of Trustee’s tape from early March where a former Trustee ripped the microphone from another citizens hand, because where I come from that’s rude.

Griffon you certainly have an interesting way with words and perspective. I hope ALL residents pray Read Morefor our township and country on Sunday or any day and I am sure they do. You also have a great deal of tolerance for those on boards and commissions as long as they are not conservative. I think you should visit and post over at Mr. Michalski's little "Media Matters" site as your jaundiced and convoluted point of view would fit right in over there!

Frank C. Ferriolo, Thanks for your post. Like you and many other citizens of Oakland Township, IRead Morew ill be praying for our Township and Country. Unfortunately, we may not be praying for the same things. Over the past few months, i have actually agreed with you on a number of things. So tolerance and open-mindedness is a value I do value. Your attack on our "Oakland Township Watchers" website, or "Media Matters" as you called it, reflects the lack of open-mindedness and tolerance exhibited by the far right "Tea Party" group that you and others in our Township leadership espouse. You can discuss that with Gonser in your Friday 'Coffee Club' meeting with the rest of Gonser's gang. I would challenge you or anyone else to find any non-factual item posted on the website. Yes opinions are sometimes included, however, the "FACTUAL MEDIA SHARED ON THE WEBSITE DOES MATTER!" As always, I encourage folks to visit www.oaklandtownship.info and form your own opinions based on the facts presented.

Frank, as I stated in the previous post, I agree with you on a number of things. At the April 8thRead MoreB oard meeting, I agreed with MANY of the things you stated. Your willingness to challenge Supervisor Gonser on his proposal to have the "walk on" appointment for the replacement of Trustee McKay was great. Your recommendation to have more time to get the word out for others to apply was great. Having the Board and the citizens 'vette' the candidates was great. Maybe we are not that too far apart on issues after all. Please keep an open mind and look at the facts presented on the website.
