The following is one more delusional post from a candidate running under an assumed name as her husband is a killer. Can not let that get out in the media right? Below is her assumed name statement.
“With the reality of Friedman’s closing in downtown coming to light I want to chat about a few things.
Having a grocer in downtown is an absolute MUST for our community. So many residents depend on the access they have to a local grocer, many without transportation abilities. By losing Friedman’s we are losing a business so many depend upon.
I’ve begun seeing calls to action to entice a larger corporate store to come to our community, and on some levels I think it would be great, but there is a major part of me that would like us to look at a second solution prior to putting all our effort behind one option.
Downtown is a business district that has thrived on small business. Local community members invested in the community they provide services too. By keeping it small and keeping it local it allows other small business to stay competitive in pricing and marketing. I truly feel that bringing in a large corporate store could undermine and destabilize our small business community.
I’ve begun reaching out to current community businesses to discover if there is a drive for a local business to take over the need we have for a grocer. I’ve spoken with one business owner, who currently operates two storefronts in the city, with an interest in possibly expanding and opening their own grocer. A grocer that would possibly combine with local farmers to provide fresh produce and meats giving legs to a more locally stalked grocer. While maintaining the communities ability to stay competitive and providing an option for our local farmers to also capitalize. While I am not sure that this is the the exact path or even feasible, I feel it is best to explore as an option before tying ourselves to a singular option.
Now, the need for the city to also grow a more marketable corporate business sector is a very real aspect and I believe a more viable solution could be found by looking to the now empty KMart shopping plaza. I would like to see us begin to work with a developer to rework that area, bringing in those larger corporate stores that are lacking in the township area (Old Navy, Trader Joes, Marshall’s, etc), creating more of a draw into our city. By utilizing this area of the city for corporate expansion we will preserve the small business district and create a market district that compliments one another rather than detract from one another.
In closing, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to Friedman’s for their years of dedicated service. You have been a cornerstone of Butler City for many years and have provided, to the residents, a great service. We will miss you greatly and wish you the best!”
Once again “Lee” has no clue what in the hell she is talking about! How does she fathom that another store can open where a failed store was? NEWS FLASH—This store closed due to lack of business, nothing else. ALSO–People can ride the bus, people in the city are able to get jobs, and a job provides a car for these people you insist just can never get out of the City.
Lee thinks that maybe bringing a Giant Eagle or something into the city will work? Is she joking? No matter who is in this building, the public will not want to shop at this store as it will face the same issues the existing store faced.
It is always nice to get smoke blown up your ass right.
What Jamie does NOT talk about is the fact that her husband was driving drunk and killed a kid, Lee then went on Facebook blaming the child for walking around at night. I think some of the screen shots I release of the things this woman said will shock the normal viewing public, Sadly her base is welfare. And when you offer to keep giving handouts with no way to pay for it, I am sure the queen of giveaways will garner a lot of votes from the city residents.
