I know pdt , if you can just ignore it till river days then just maybe they will forget about it and we can talk about normal stuff , like how great this years shty band was or how much money we as a city didnt make or falsify some dumb a$$ city budget #, I think we are starting to wake now and are done with you're sht , it ultimately came down to Columbus to front these fckers out, where were you when ptown needed you?

Tell it like it is wrote:
You're right about accountability and jones being absent- that means he had knowledge of everything that would happen, so he was purposely absent. Otherwise he couldn't claim high ground with the dispatch.
OMG, how could I have been so blind? This crap was planned wasn't it? Kegley didn't alter his routine, Jones did, by not being present, despite knowing of the case. OMG

Go to City Council meetings, they make it a habit now to be there, like the Solicitor, Mayor and Auditor on the very nights their agenda item is on. If they are not there they can not be held accountable and that's City Council's bad passing it without waiting until the appropriate official being there. They are...just plain crooked, corrupt...
I seeeeee, said the blind man. Jones must have purposely not been present, that way he could make Kegley look bad by calling the Columbus Dispatch. Had it been important to him, Jones would have been there to do his job. So, what could his motive be???
Will we soon be seeing him or one of his buddies running against Kegley to be elected judge?

So you're saying that because of financial knowledge about the audit, and possible knowledge about the SOGP Marting's building scam, Kegley has become a liability?
Now that the audit has blown their cover, they could be trying to clean house. Like you said, they all know where their bodies are. Time to get rid of the skeletons in the closet.

I don't believe this was a set up , I think it was a case of smoking the wrong thing at the wrong place and an obvious abuse of power .

Cowardly 7@g5 give the finger as they're running away; real men get in your face and tell you with words.

I started out on this thread going right along with the Op's intention, but then thought about it.
Kegley dismissed a dui on mine a long time ago, when the NB prosecutor (Walter?) didn't show.
The Ptown prosecutor said it wasn't his case, and wouldn't touch it. So, instead of rescheduling, it was thrown out.
No one called the Columbus Dispatch on me... Why not? How is that fair to Nash?
Every time this happens, which throughout the Country is often, a big to do should be made...right?

Imsobored did Kegley throw your case out before court started and did he come in just for you while he was on vacation? HHMMMM maybe that's why no one called the dispatch on your case.

"In 2010, over $1,000,000 was transferred from the water fund to cover salaries, overtime, and benefits of fire department personnel."
I've seen their budget, so I realize it's obviously abusive of the taxpayer's hard-earned money.
There are 'issues' of unethical spending across the board, and across the Country. However, few places have reached the level of despair, and powerlessness, that the citizens of Ptown now feel.

That's what happens when some peopl are left to run ramped with a unrestricted budget , they might tend to show off beyond there means , such as mr huff did.

He started a couple individuals on a salary that was way beyond the budget at hand and in the end it was those people that really had to pay for his bullsht, that's the sad part of it all.

It's not an unrestricted budget though.
According to the State Auditor, it's a violation of the ORC. In other words, it's illegal.
