LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A citizen’s view of the city

TO CRAWFORD COUNTY NOW!

My name is Carolyn Shireman and I just want to comment on how Bucyrus is run by the Mayor and City Council/

As some citizens of Bucyrus stand right now, we have a legal director with a drinking problem who was contracted by Mayor Reser, despite knowing the problem existed. After the last DUI, the legal director was reinstated.

To be fair, I believe Mr. Gernert should give up his seat until he seriously seeks professional help.

To be clear, I support Brian’s sobriety.

I object to Mr. Motter holding this position because of his past costing the city thousands of dollars.

Now, let’s look at who is occupying the board seats that I oppose with the general counsel.

First, MARK MAKEEVER, Mark has openly admitted to entering Kurt Fankhauser’s property to take a photo of his meter. Why did he do this? To try to make sure Kurt can’t show up for his police station against resident Sis Love.

After being found guilty of said trespassing, Mark said he planned to run for mayor. I had great respect for Mark. HE WON’T GET MY VOTE!

His comments to “certain” residents at council meetings are quite unpleasant. I clearly heard a very nasty comment about Vicky Dishon, (HOT MIKE) myself. I called him on the board myself to mention me in an article. I told him: “Never insult my intelligence!

In my opinion alone, Mark Makeever is a dishonest board member. HE MUST GO !

Next we have Kevin Myers. I understand Kevin has a domestic violence charge from 2016. I was just told he actually had (3) before he became a council member.

He is also involved in stripping the “REAL QUEEN” BAILEY of her crown.

HE MUST GO !

We now have Dan Wirebaugh. Dan likes to take credit for things he’s never done. All his years on council, I can’t think of one thing he did for the citizens. He put on the dunk tank for THE POSITIVE SEEKERS “RED WHITE AND BLUES” with all proceeds going to the CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT.

When the mayor was talking about scrapping a tax credit for workers living out of town but working in town, Dan Wirebaugh “MADE” me leave the council meeting. The council has a protocol that Wirebaugh didn’t follow in firing me.

The next meeting, Vicky Dishon was reading council protocol and Wirebaugh grabbed his coat and walked out of the meeting. HE BROKEN PROTOCOL AGAIN. I filed a grievance on Wirebaugh paid the $250 only to have Gernert dismiss the case.

As of today, September 5, 2022, I still cannot watch council meetings live by JOHN ROTASH.

So another board member not following his own rules! There is much more to this story.

Now let’s go to Mayor Reser. At one point I had great respect for Reser until he showed his true colors. For one thing, the mayor asked Kelli Patterson to email POSITIVE SEEKERS saying he couldn’t help get sponsorship from the same companies as the year before because, I’M VOTE FOR A PARTY DEMOCRATIC INSTEAD OF HIM. He was referring to when Dan Wirebaugh was running for mayor. For what it’s worth, I’m a registered TRUMPSTER! That’s when THE POSITIVE SEEKERS had their last RED WHITE AND BLUES!

I have never seen a mayor disregard the opinions of the citizens who voted for him.

Reservoir is nothing more than leaving a LEGACY.

Citizens never had the chance to vote for Bicentennial Park. The mayor took the roundabout route. And, got grants because he knew the vote wouldn’t pass. (LEGACY)

WHAT DOES HE CARE TO ASK YOU? TREES. PARKS AND INCREASE IN TAZ AND WATER RATES.

Where are the jobs? GE is gone.

WHEN A MAYOR CARE MORE ABOUT LEAVING A LEGACY THAN CITIZENS’ CONCERNS, he must go.

AND TO PUT A PARK ON A PLENTY 4 ROAD FOR CHILDREN TO GET KILLED, IN FRONT OF A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER WHO BY THE FACT WENT TO COUNCIL IN CONCERN OF NOT BEING IN VIOLATION OF HIS WORD, AND NEXT TO ‘A FLOODED RIVER FOR THE CHILDREN TO BE AT. WAS HE EVEN THINKING OF CITIZEN SAFETY OR HIS LEGACY?

BUCYRUS HAS A “GOOD OLE BOY” TEAM RUNNING A “YOU” CITY FOR WHICH CITIZENS PAY EARN TAXES.

WHAT DO YOU GET IN RETURN? PUT MONEY IN AUMILLAR PARK!

WE HAVE A COUNCIL WITH A COURT FILE!

IT IS UP TO YOU CITIZENS OF BUCYRUS TO MAKE A CHANGE. ASK YOURSELF, OVER THE YEARS, THE SAME MEMBERS HAVE SIT IN THE SAME SEAT. HOW DID THEY HELP YOU?

I imagine they don’t have or we wouldn’t have those conversations!

PLEASE DO NOT ADD OR REMOVE ANY COMMENTS I HAVE MADE IN THIS LETTER TO “CRAWFORD COUNTY NOW”.

THANK YOU

CAROLYN J. FLYNN SHIREMAN
