Hey Moberly we are getting it put to us. The city council mandates nothing can be bought out of town but yet they gave away another million dollars last night to Columbia for a new airport. Can't wait to vote some deadbeats out!

Didn't you know? Mayor Riley does not have to follow any rules or laws. Probably another salesman came knocking on the door and they said, here's a million. The last Chinese salesman got $19 million? So we should consider ourselves lucky. I need some cash for Christmas, do you think if I asked teh City Council, that they would give ME any money? Oops, I forgot, that is OUR money that they are giving away! Wake up Moberly!

Wow, talk about your "low class guy". I do not understand how he gets away from these CRIMINAL actions. First, you do not agree with a company that levy's the taxpayers for job. Instead, you lower taxes to make companies WANT to come here (Mamtek). Now, he is giving away more tax payer's money to other cities of their development? Wow, just when I though it couldn't get any worse, it does. Moberly, please wake up and get this guy out of office, he is spending us dry!

Small-minded, small town guy. His business experience is almost non-existent and the other people on the City Council should not be listening to him. I thought they were more worldly and intelligent. Where are they? Come on guys-can't you out-vote this dimwit or do you just follow blindly? The rest of the Council needs to do something because by the time he gets out of Office, I am afraid that it will be too late. The damage will take years to fix and or be unfixable! Come on, the rest of the City Council---do something. Band together and protect us--I think some Council Members are great, so I hate to lump them in w/ Riley but now, I am starting to wonder. I am so disappointed in the them. Riley, I expected. Some others- I thought better of. You have to stop Mayor Riley from ruining out town! Do not follow his lead. Have we not learned anything? Come on!
happy new year

The City Council likes to give work to other business's out of town.....I have always said the same thing. Look back at how many projects that could have been hired out from Moberly contractors but went to Columbia contractors, supporting that town NOT OURS. Sales Tax, revenue, labor, work, patronage to local business....to other towns...good job Moberly - NOT!!!

You don't have to believe what you are hearing because, obviously, your opinion is different. However, I know him, have worked with him and seen and know about some of his dealings and treatment of people. Honest is not the word I would use to describe him.
Knowing someone casually and actually having business dealings and working with someone in another setting, are two diffent things. You may know him but have you actually "dealt" with him on matters?
Honest does not come to mind. And, your idea of a good person may be one that shakes hands and says hello. My idea of a good person is one that is actually honest when it is hard to be honest, makes good and hard decisions based on what is good for the majority and not just himself or his "friends". Maybe you should peek out from under that wool that is hanging over your eyes..........

The state wants an audit done. They could go through council minutes and see one company always gets city planning contracts, one gets all the vehicle sales, one gets all the street work, etc. Then look at the Park board over the last three years since the council took over all its control. They hired last year's intern as asst city manager, like we need one of those, forced out the highly effective but independent-thinking Parks director, then moved the intern in as Parks director. Look on their website moberlymo.org and look at everyone who serves on a board and see all the conflicts of interest. Yes, we need an audit.

Darn right we do! I hope the State gets in there and finds out the truth. Hey good ole' boys, I don't hear much from you now...they sure were big-winded when they were in total control and they could shut out the citizens that were asking questions. Has the wind gone out of their sails?
Dear State of Missouri, Thank You for helping the citizens of Moberly that were being shut-out and bamboozled by its own goverment. City Attorney and Police Department included.

Since Mehaffy is the main one to have rushed the Mamtek thing through, he needs to leave too. Maybe that is why they hired the new PR firm. Of course approving 7500+ a month for PR when things are already so bad is a good reason to step down.

If Riley doesn't resign immediately, maybe he will resign on April "Fool's Day". Now, that would be fitting!
No, please make it quicker than that, can you imagine the damage that he could do by then? GET OUT NOW!
Are any criminal charges going to be filed againt Riley?

Mahaffy is not on the City Council. If I suggest you buy something--you don't have to.

Our City COuncil VOTED to enter into an agreement with Mamtek-the City of Moberly cut the check. Mehaffy did not vote on cutting the check nor did he cut the check. Our City Council did. Mahaffy did not go over to China. Mayor Riley and City Manager Morris WENT THERE. DID THEY NOT CONFIRM ITS EXSISTENCE OR SEE A FACTORY? No. So what the hell did they go over there for? If I go to a car dealership in hopes to buy a NEW KIND OF CAR, do you really think any smart business person is going to cut the check when they haven't even seen the car, the factory or any FINISHED PRODUCT off a PRODUCTION LINE?

The answer is NO. Corey Mahaffy was not in China. He may of not done everything perfect but the FINAL responsibility lies with the Mayor that was suppose to verify the factory when he went to China and those that voted on money to be handed out without verfiying the facts. Their own lawyer told CITY OFFICIALS that there was a problem verifying Mamtek's existence.

How can you blame anyone but RILEY and MORRIS--they were the ones sent to CHINA to verify all was ok. They came back and greenlighted the deal even after they were told by MO. Econ Dev. that there was a problem verifying the company.
