Van mayor spends morning playing golf, angers citizens, city officials

Mayor Dean StoneVAN, TX (KLTV) – City officials and citizens of Van said they are frustrated with the response from Mayor Dean Stone. They said that, as parts of the city lay in ruin Wednesday morning, the mayor was nowhere to be found.

At Wednesday morning’s 9:00 a.m. press conference, Van Mayor Dean Stone was noticeably absent.

So, KLTV 7 began looking into where he had been.

“A friend of mine called me and told me that the mayor had been out on the golf course this morning,” Pete Lucas, a resident of Van, said. SOURCE

I don’t care what kind of stress you’re under or how much sleep you’ve lost, YOU are the Mayor of Van, TX and you have dead citizens, and a town that is a wreck, a full-fledged disaster, you don’t go golfing and make excuses, you catch a few winks when and where you can and you stand with your citizens and community for as long as it takes.

That is what a LEADER would do.

I am not trying to cast aspersions against Mayor Stone, I have never had the opportunity to meet the gentleman, but antics such as this is something you would expect from Barack Hussein Obama, not a Mayor in Texas.

    I think he’s been watching too much Obama.

    Pardon me Fred. Would like to send this to Bunker. Three days no comment has posted from me , just doesn’t. I don’t see email on site to contact. I can post on other wordpress sites. Just old man who doesn’t know how this works. Have read somewhere that sometimes it goes to spam. Probably my comments deserve go to spam or worse. Thanks. :)

      Wish I could help you, sorry, all I can do is copy a link and send to email but I haven’t got a clue who Bunker is… Unless you’re talking about Bunkerville, and in that case I don’t have an email for him either…

      • the unit says:

        Yeah, thanks. Bunkerville. Thought he who posts here sometimes might see and check if problem. I’ve read sites that said, “oh you been going to spam.” I know nothing about how that works. I won’t keep trying to make contact across your site, but thanks for this trial. Sincerely Coop.

  3. This guy has to be a Liberal Democrat…
    He received a call from HUSSEIN OBAMA and was told to go play a round or two of golf.. it will help with all of his anxiety……..But so will a liter or two of Tequila and Scotch….

    YUP!
    Without hearing – Without knowing – No matter his politics – This mayor has all the indications of being a “dyed-in-the-wool” Liberal.
    DAMN! It just seems that even small-town America is not immune from them.
    God bless the survivors of Van, Texas and let’s just hope that their ancestral roots don’t play-out with a good ole’ Texas lynching.

      I don’t know why but your comment was hung up in the SPAM filter… Some weird stuff has been going on with WordPress in the last day or 2…

  5. Ron in Ohio says:

    OK Fred – After my sending my previous post, I read the rest of the Van, Texas mayor’s reply. It still isn’t clear whether or not he is a Lib-O but – At best, he is a non-caring R-I-N-O. I sure hope there are a few standing trees left in Van for the citizens to toss a rope across for him to cling to.

    You can’t make this shit up. The mayor of Lincoln Park, N.J., as the town went under eight feet of water, took off for the Caribbean the day after the flood hit. He returned after (about 6 days) the worst of the water receded and was photographed with a group of volunteers with a push broom in his hands for a photo op in the Star Ledger. One of my fellow J.C.’s was within earshot and quipped “I see you got your old job back”. Raucus laughter ensued. The mayor lost the next election.

  7. cary says:

    He wouldn’t happen to be a member of MAIG too, would he? I can think of another “mayor” in Texas that would have pulled this …

    Sounds like Gov Christie who went on vacation as his state was being pounded by one of its worse snow storms in history.
