Koep loose with words
Where does Mary Koep get her information to make statements such as these? "Renters on public assistance trash rental property and Legal Aid protects these tenants." I feel Koep owes us renters on public assistance a public apology unless she can provide proof that her statements are true and accurate. Koep has always been very loose with her words. Why didn't council members, HRA or Legal Aid challenge her on these statements? Remember Koep is up for re-election in 2006. The campaign has started. Wasn't Koep subsidized by the county for her hotel bill?
Doesn't Koep support city staff?
Why did Mary Koep vote no on the motion to take the city planner off probation status? This motion passed 5-1. Watching the council meetings, it's evident the city planner is performing the job he was hired and paid to do, enforcing codes and ordinances. Doesn't Koep support city staff members when doing their job? I feel Koep is self-serving and fails to represent the citizens. Watch her play politics and become very theatrical on TV. Elections are in 2006.
There is a photo of a disgusting turkey on the November issue of Ladies Home Journal. Are we supposed to be thankful for this immoral, unethical embarrassment? This turkey lied. He was impeached. That's the problem with society today. Immoral behavior is overlooked and rewarded in our culture of death. Another example is the Vikings sex party. People will soon forget and put them back on a pedestal like our former president.
Christians and Halloween
How can any Christians think it's OK to celebrate Halloween - the devil's biggest worship day of the year?
