Maybe Christopher is just tired of Waldmeir using the Patch as his bully pulpit. Petey's replies often have nothing to do with the story and all to do with his persistent ranting about his displeasure with the GPW administration. Then we have his blog, frequently filled with inaccuracies about how he thinks the citizens are being ripped off. There's nothing like checking facts by the old paper boy...

While I believe everyone is entitled to their opinions and thusly reject your criticism of Mr. Waldmeir; I must say you have by far the best nom de plume on this site. I salute you, sir.

Alas, if they had only spelled it correctly.

Diane, As i look at the big picture you are correct, i have stooped to Mr.Waldmeirs level and i am certainly not proud of that fact. I have been an avid fan of this web site and just had enough of his lies, hate and love of himself. I love this city i live in and he never has a nice thing to say about ANYTHING. He has harassed everyone on this site if they dont agree with him and i felt he deserved a little back. Honestly, i think he has helped the Novitke Administration as people are just sick of his crabby old man attitude and see what his true colors are.

I agree, by going overboard, he is " polluting" a legitimate message. Hopefully, there are many others who can campaign PROPERLY for what that feel is just and right and fair as GPW residents as I do not agree with the 2 upcoming ballot proposals. I also do not agree with the councils lack of debate on any topic, especially the budget. Slamming is not going to get more no votes.
