In 2009, John Szerlag told the people of Troy that we were in trouble because of plummeting property values and tax revenues.
Go back and look at videos from late 2009. The Right Guard of Troy -- the extreme conservatives like Janice Daniels, John and Jack Witt, Bob Gosselin and Glenn Clark and their blind followers step up to the city council microphone and call Szerlag a liar. They were wrong. Szerlag was right.
And so it went.
Watch the Troy City Council video archives. You will see all of the same fools who stand up today, twisting facts, or ignoring facts all together, speaking nonsense over and over and over.
In 2010 Janice Daniels repeatedly lied and said the 8.4 million dollars in expected federal funding for the transit center was coming out of city funds! Councilman Dave Henderson claimed that was true JUST LAST JULY!

Most of us who have been trying to stop these people from destroying Troy were nowhere to be seen in 2009.
But one by one, we noticed what was happening. We noticed that people were lying to get what they wanted. What did they want? Low taxes, low taxes, and low taxes. Did they care who in the city lost their jobs? No. Dozens did. Did they care that staff took pay cuts, voluntarily? No. They lied about that.
I met when of my new anti-TCU friends and sat next to her in a meeting two years ago when someone proclaimed no one had been laid off in the city.
My friend, sitting right beside me had.
When are the people of Troy going to finally understand that Janice Daniels and Co. are destroying Troy?
When are they going to notice that our city clerk has left, our wonderful assistant city manager and now Mr. Szerlag seems poised to leave as well?
These are the people who held Troy together!
Through the lies, the attacks, the endless city council meetings where TCU minions repeated falsehoods they learned at the knees of the likes of Bob Gosselin and Glenn Clark.
Stop voting blindly!
Stop taking the word of proven dis-informers, like Janice Daniels and her minions!
Stop forgiving bigotry that sends people away from our borders!
Stop electing the brainless ideologues that are causing the brain drain!
Stand up for truth!
Stand up for Troy!
