Forest Gossett and Michael Hays have agreed to meet soon. However, Chris Gard and Rick Stokes, so far, have ignored New Wentzvillian requests to meet. We hope Aldermen Stokes and Gard will quickly set up appointments with our editors.
In the mean time the New Wentzvillian would like to hear from any Wentzville citizens (or others) who have information to share about Alderman Rick Stokes. We are very keen to hear ANYTHING relative to Mr. Stokes since Alderman Stokes has recently told the New Wentzvillian that it is not allowed to communicate with him at his work email address.
The New Wentzvillian filmed Alderman Stokes at a candidate event last year; here is the video in case you do not know who he is:
Frankly, the New Wentzvillian's objective is to draw down a spotlight on each of the alderpersons in Wentzville that seem to be giving Wentzville's mayor a difficult time with his agenda. This past year, Mayor Guccione won his election with a very convincing margin and has A LOT of political capital relative to the voters of Wentzville.
It seems that many of the current alderpersons pushed heavily for another mayoral candidate in that election -- even collectively riding on his float during a parade -- however, their efforts evidently did not bring about their desired outcome. Apparently this did not set well with many of them and they either consciously or subconsciously want to punish the winner of the election -- Mayor Guccione.
This is no witch hunt; rather, it is an attempt to correct what the New Wentzvillian sees as shameful inequities. Inequities that stem from some of the aforementioned aggrieved aldermen shamelessly ascribing to the malicious and reckless musings contained in another local Wentzville blog. A blog that cares nothing about fair and balanced journalism, and instead focuses on rumor, hatred, libel and wanton disregard for any attempt at objectivity or truth.
Please assist the New Wentzvillian in formulating fair and balanced coverage of each of Wentzville's fine alderpersons. Please email us at carter@NewWentzvillian.com or Call us at 636-916-4040.
We will focus on Alderman Chris Gard in the coming days.
