Wow! Wonder how the Mayor and Dave Henderson will defend this.
OMG, when, where, details please!
If this picture shows what I think it does, Janice Daniels will do anything to preserve her fiefdom of Troy. I will have my satisfaction on Tuesday by voting her out.
Please, please, please get this out to the media!
She will probably give an excuse or say she had permission to remove them from somewhere. This doesn't change the fact that she is seen with them. Why would any one be that dumb - OH WAIT I forgot it's Janice.
We cannot say for sure what is going on. But there just really cannot be anything good about this...perhaps signs were removed, perhaps property owners were harassed into removing them...either way, it just isn't good for Janice Daniels. That she is spending any time worrying about signs shows some desperation, no?
Just uploaded the picture and commented on the Troy Patch story about Man Caught Removing Legally Placed Recall Yard Signs. http://troy.patch.com/articles/man-caught-stealing-political-yard-signs
I recognize one of the people in the picture, that's Minesh something who has spoken at city council meeting against the transit center. Plus I had the misfortune when I was flipping through cable channels to see a telecast of a Troy Tea Party gathering and Minesh was hosting a guest author. Plenty of talk of the liberals playbook, conspiracies, Agenda 21, United Nations, PBS bad, anti-semitism (Rothchild history) and George Soros. Frequently on Troy Patch, Janice Daniels's defenders, vis-a-vis her gaffes, will say, "did you ever try to lend your hand in friendship to mayor, and give some advice to this novice politician who is only rough around the edges?" To me it looks like she has plenty of friends already, between the radical Troy Tea Party and the Smiths, and they are not of the right sort.
Goodbye Janice! Vote YES to recall!
First her campaign is caught lying about copying the sign logo. Then this week the media coverage of the man caught stealing signs. You would think she would show the good thinking to steer clear of being seen anywhere near the "Yes" signs. But. This is how she operates. She was once witnessed arguing with a business owner who had a "Yes" sign up for the library millage. I would bet money she was in Kroger yelling about the signs and they decided they just need to take them down.
She will either say it is photoshopped or she was not the one carrying them. Or. They followed her wanting to get her autograph. I say a picture is worth a thousand words, but three stand at the top of the list: cheat, lie and steal.
Janice and Minesh are NOT holding the signs, a Kroger employee is. Looks like the only ones acting illegally are the Recall supporters who are putting up signs without owners permission.
Where is the proof that those signs were placed illegally?
Where is the proof that is a Kroger employee?
Yes, she was caught in the act. At a minimum she was caught in the act of showing poor judgment. At the end of the day, that's the real reason to vote "Yes" on the Recall.
The recall movement, which in my opinion is warranted and proper, is on the eve of knowing whether or not the citizens of Troy want non-partisan leadership that focuses on the welfare of Troy residents. In many ways the quality of local government has far greater impact on the daily lives of residents than does the state or federal government. This is not to downplay the importance of state and national offices; however, that’s why we elect state legislative officers, congress members and senators and presidents. I will vote my concerns and beliefs at the level designated to handle such matters; the Mayor of Troy isn’t an office with that kind of authority.Over the course of this recall endeavor many people who place comments on this blog have been very critical of the “Tea Party” movement that Mayor Daniels apparently supports and is supported by. As a real Republican, I see some merit in the Tea Party. National debt, taxation levels, nationalized health care, unemployment and entitlements, concern me greatly and I appreciate those that are willing to speak out on these issues. However, my observation is that in all movements zealots move into the spotlight, detract from the original purpose and utilize the movement to promote personal agendas (all the while concealing their motives behind sound bites and slogans). Such zealots are not limited to the Tea Party; recent Moveon.org ads are as vile and nasty as anything Sterling Heights Councilman Smith and Mayor Daniels have done. I find it interesting that a very young, idealistic, Tea Party member from Alpena comes in to lead the charge for the mayor while the local Tea Party folks have been rather quiet. Perhaps local support isn’t so great; I’ve spoken to many Tea Party sympathizers who are pro-recall. As a Republican I find it odd that I am telling friends and family to support Ms. Kerwin, Ms. Schilling and the recall. It’s my hope that if elected, Kerwin and Schilling will continue to serve Troy without regard to political affiliation; they both have demonstrated the ability to do so while serving as members of City Council. As for the recall, if successful the battle won’t be over. Vigilance by the citizenry is required. It was inattention that led to the current mess.Going forward I hope this blog continues to monitor city government in a non-partisan and objective manner.
Amen. Beautifully said.
The Mad Hatter (often the Mad Hater) and her Tea Party have turned Troy into "I-WONDER-why-I-ever-wanted-to-live-here-LAND". I'm voting YES on the recall.
I just took a break from the polls. Isn't it great to have the privilege to vote in a free nation? I appreciate the various social media sites and their efforts to build a stronger Troy. It is unfortunate that some cannot see the purpose for these due to the fog they have created. They will continue to ridicule these pages and the posters, thus exhibiting what they say they oppose. While working at the polls, I only had one nasty encounter. I was screamed and yelled at by someone in support of the Mayor, not knowing the facts, but I guess the volume of the voice helps create confidence. I told her she was entitled to her opinion, she continued to rant and when she finally left she hurried over to Janice's supporters to complain more.I only mention this because it was the only nasty encounter. The rest of the individuals conducted themselves with respect for others and their opinions.I will never understand why Janice and her supporters feel the need to be angry in response to opposing opinions and then turn around and accuse others of the behavior. I guess when you are used to playing "victim," it's hard to change.My hope is that after today's election, we can start to mend the divide that has caused so much stress and turmoil in our city.A big thank you to everyone who exercised their constitutional right and voted today!
