Former Mayor John Harper vs The World — Part XII
Who would have thought that there could possibly be another chapter in the continuing saga of FORMER Mayor John W. Harper? You would think that John Harper would be too embarrassed to send this out to the good citizens of Rowlett. Apparently not.
I do know this, if I was one of the people that Harper was endorsing, I would contact him immediately and TELL HIM, not ask, by God TELL HIM to keep his opinions to himself.

My friends…I have spent the last several weeks wondering what could have been. I apologize for letting you down and resigning before the end of my elected term. The unwarranted attacks on me and my family were too much to endure along with the other family issues that Debra and I are trying to manage. I hope you understand. I love the City of Rowlett and only hope for the best for all of us. But, I remain concerned.
I am encouraged that Randy Mays and Chad McEntee are running for City Council. Although they have not asked me, I wholeheartedly endorse them both. We need to completely change the City Council this election and the next election. Kilgore and Phillips are not the solution…they are the problem. Please vote for Randy and Chad on Saturday.
Did you notice the chicanery surrounding the Special Election to replace me as Mayor? Any candidate must complete all the required paperwork to run for that office by the end of the business day on Monday. That will make it very difficult for anyone to complete the requirements in such a short period of time. I wonder if this is done on purpose to assure that Todd Gottel is your next Mayor. I hope not.
I do not endorse Todd Gottel for Mayor. He does not have the inner strength…the core values…that are necessary to lead our City to its destiny. I am asking each of you to please, please consider the sacrifice that I made and you do the same for our City. We need new leadership! Please consider running for Mayor! Remember…get your petition to the City Secretary by 5pm on Monday.
I have moved on but remain concerned and will continue to be concerned until the Special Interests in the City are no longer in charge. Please help make that change.
Please vote on Saturday. Vote for Randy and Chad. You can find your precinct by going to http://www.rowlett.com Then, file for Mayor or encourage your neighborhood leader to file!
John E. Harper, Ed.D.

Take your line of lying BULLSHIT and send it to someone that will believe it…
YOU are the biggest damned LIAR I have ever seen, and that takes some doing… You whine and cry like some libber that just got his ass kicked…
The ATTACKS? The ones that happened in YOUR delusional mind? I have NEVER been so disappointed by a politician in my life…
Go away John, take me OFF of your email list, you are DONE in Rowlett, and anyone that you support is done too…
Seek professional mental help, you seriously need it.
Bcc: My list of Rowlett citizens.
There are some very hilarious communications taking place in the background, I sent this message to MY contacts:
Maybe HE should file and run against Todd, lets have a real THROW DOWN and see who supports Harper and who doesn’t… Anyone that does is as delusional as he is…
And one of the responses I got back was:
Fortunately he can’t. Otherwise, the voices in his head might have him believing the masses are crying out for his return. (You know how those siren voices obscure the pitchforks and torches, making you think they are outstretched arms from the swirling smoke and haze, calling, beckoning.) He is being called, for sure, but I think the destination is not where he thinks.
To which I responded:
Well, he’s hearing *something*, and frankly, I think it’s his ass talking…
The best thing John Harper could do would be to go away quietly, but that isn’t his style.
Harper has lied about the *attacks* against his family, they never happened. I challenged him, and demanded PROOF of those attacks, yet NONE has come forth.
All of this from a man that claimed to be FOR Rowlett, from a man that, just a very short while ago, sang the praises of Todd Gottel to anyone that would listen to him, a man that called Todd Gottel his “best friend and most trusted ally”.
Harper has come perilously close to slander in his words against Todd Gottel. Harper has intimated that Rowlett elections and candidate registrations are possibly being *fixed* in such a way as to favor of Todd Gottel.
If that is the case, if ANY of Harper’s suspicions/hallucinations are even remotely correct, if elections are being *fixed*, or *rigged*, perhaps Dr. Harper needs to come forth with proof OF those incredibly weak allegations.
Oh, wait, Harper never has proof, all he has is accusations and suspicions, because after all, the entire world is out to get poor John Harper and his family.
I am quite serious in my words to Dr. John Harper when I say, “Seek professional mental help, you seriously need it.”, the sooner, the better.
A special P.S. to Babs and Jerry, I went after John Harper, and as a point of order, he’s NOT a woman, so, your baseless accusation that I only go after women in my blog posts is once again proven wrong…
