I noticed that Wayne Cusick has count out with "reasons I support Steve Smith" pamphlets in his stations. Just makes me glad I was smart enough to NOT vote for him. His taste in civil servants SUCKS. I buy my gas elsewhere, anyway.

yes vote Galvan,Patel and Wade ...They will make a difference....Joey is really on the council to help his chosen ones.. A board members priority should be to help the entire community ...That cant be done when you suck up to certain people. I have been told he plans a big party for the supervisor over Riverside county..I will have to admit Joey is a fine farmer tho.....

Let's stop the power grab. By not letting people run for any Council, or Board Member if they are a Council Member, or on any Board. Also if they hold any public office like these administrators.

Mr wade is not my cup of tea. You can take the man out of the country, but, you can't take the country out of the man.

So maybe we can have people run in the next elections, that are not running on hidden agendas.

Just once can we have an election where the candidates are there for the poeple and not their wallets? Everybody has an agenda but we need to elect the persons who has the people in Blythe at the top of the list?

I grew up in Blythe and I have been away for years. When I do visit on occasion, the community seems to be drying up. New blood is needed on the council and I think Tim understands that. The council needs to wake up or Blythe will become a ghost town like Midland. Every other river community has grown (Parker, Yuma, Lake Havasu) except Blythe. Tim understands that action is needed now in Blythe.

Wholly molly, Palo Verde Transit needs a assistant administrator? Talk about a waste of tax revenue. How much does the state or county spend on this fleet anyway?

BABY FIT! Your right! That's what we the citizens of Blythe have to deal with from the likes of LANE & SMITH!! When they don't get their way they make personal attacks against certain board members! Get your facts straight before you start spewing your garbage! It's like a little kid when he doesn't get his way they just say (deleted) to get even!!! If they would put half the effort into making this city better as they do in trying to bring down Evans WE THE CITIZENS OF BLYTHE would a LOT better off!!!!!Site Administrator's note: A portion of this comment has been removed because it violated our Terms of use Agreement.

We need to get Joey off the payroll and Mr. Cusick has his hands full taking care of his gas station and Community Improvement Fund.

Mr. Wade may be a nice man but his recent friendship with the power abusing Mike Evans would make me not support him, ever. Evans throwing a baby fit to get into the races LMAO! Tim enjoy your retirement. This game is not for you, take care of yourself.

You got a point. He's disabled with a lot of time to work on our community and use the education he got from on line to good use. A great asset of ours. Do you know a lot of jobs pay for continuous education? I think the college administrator candidate needs to concentrate on our college..
