Article comment by: Carney a Sore Loser

Jim Carney had his best day and it was not in public service. I've been hearing he is still up to his usual dirty tricks on his way out the door. The community voted their choices and Carney and his small band of haters need to accept losing and ask themselves, what was it that Carney did to improve the hospital?

First off I do not, nor do you, have access to anyone's personal finance records. So as to Sam I have no clue, nor do I of any other person that has been a candidate in this town. I can not respond to any other accusation you would like to make without details. You are more than welcome to call me and discuss it if you would like. My number is in the phonebook. You can either keep hiding behind your computer and live in the good ole Blythe rumor mill or get the truth from me. Your choice!

On a more positive note I would like to congratulate Ned Hyduke, and Ermila Rodriguez. They will take their positions seriously and work hard to make our college the best it can be.

I never said you posted it on here Brad What I wrote was "you said" you know out in public, where people could hear you.

First off let me remind you that Trina and Sandy are just 2 votes on a board of 5 people. They are not a majority so nothing they want to do will be passed without the vote of another board member. It will be my job, along with any other voter in this community, to see that the whole board is doing what is in the best interest of the community. If not they will be voted out and not get my vote in the next election. As to your other allegations personally levied at me they do not even warrant a response. I know what I have posted on here and feel you are making allegations that are untrue and unproven.

@DALE SMITH You say you moved away when you were 16? So how does this even affect what you do in your day to day life? Also, how do you even know any details for yourself other than what your friends tell you to even post judgement at all? You stated you are glad you moved away from Blythe. Well, I'm actually glad you did too!

You and Jim Carney have something in common, and you may as well be the same. You have a math problem. Two new board members out of five are not the majority and cannot do anything without others agreeing with them. (deleted) and other haters have no rationale to admit that they were wrong and people of Blythe Voted Out the corrupt people. Sartin and Hudson who were not born here got 2500&1800 votes against Carney and Carlton (1000 votes) who were born and raised here. This is what PVVT should call a landslide, and it is the highest I have seen in Blythe. This sent a shock wave to the spines of the newspaper and its cronies (if they have any) who were rebuffed but continue to destroy good people in Blythe for personal agenda. Have you no shame?

People of Blythe , This is a sad day for Blythe . Really don't see how these people got on the board . They want to only play big shot and do things for them self and their pocket books . I ask myself do they want to serve the people of Blythe the ones that have to go to the hospital here. I wonder if Sandy and Trina to to the hospital here . haha nooooooooooo way .Close it down and start all over is my vote. The doctors here are a joke as well . Iam sure both women go to the doctors here too . I was born and raise here but move away at 16. so glad about that . Its just so sad what has happen to this town . Poor Blythe soon to become another dirty little town.

since sandy an trina won, your putting on like your all flowers and roses, not how you were coming off before the election, said some pretty nasty thing about a few people, now want to act like the community organizer. So how long before trina and sandy start paying back the doc? Maybe the first meeting, you know gotta get that lawsuite thing taken care of. Want to make a bet on that one?

I can't speak for other Carney supporters .But let me assure you I don't call people names.I am way above that age and level.I did say we the community have a right to know how honest the doctor's and hospital is.I will stand by that..And as far as another election I can't really fore see one as the hospital will be controlled by mec which I have posted before .I never dreamed Dr Brooks and Dr P would play apart of it.Miss judgement of character on my part..So be happy your candidates won let's just see now all these great changes their going to make.I hope we Carney supporters won't get the last laugh.

Now that your candidates lost the JIm Carney supporters are going to call the citizens of this town names. What good does that really do this town or your candidates? Seems that the recent Bob Weete column entitled "Grow up, folks" may have been directed at the wrong group of people. Obviously the people of this town did not see things the way you did when Trina probably had close to 75 percent of the people in this town vote for her and Sandy was pushing close to 60 percent. Those are both pretty good majorities. Maybe you all need to ask yourselves why your candidates lost so bad. Next election I hope the candidates see that they have to get up and answer the questions of the community whether they really want to or not and not just let the newspaper run your campaign for you. Obviously the staffs opinion does not carry much weight around this town anymore and they need to take a good hard look as to why that is!
