    Now we are stuck with Payne for four more years and Shelton who says nothing, does nothing at Council meeting, however he does agree with evey thing Clare say's! I guess we can see him follow Clare around like a little dog waiting around for a pat on the head

    foreclosures are happening everywhere. council has nothing to do with that. developers will pay their share and bring galt more retail/commercial business so we don't have to leave our money in lodi or eg.

    When I went to vote, Barbara Payne was standing 15 feet out side the doors of the polling place talking to someone. When I came out, 15 tom 20 minutes later, she was talking to someone else, and saying hello to someone walking up. Isn't there a law against that? If not, there should be. Maybe it's like the plumbing fiasco, she thinks she's above the law.

    It is sad to see Raboy go and Payne remain. Payne, Shelton, and Clare are nothing but whores for Gutteridge and others who want to exploit this little city without providing any amenities or other infrastructure improvements. Galt does not need more development when it cannot even fill the hundreds of vacant foreclosed houses it has!! "
