Holding The Budget Hostage (AGAIN)

By I.M.Fletcher.

Joe Nichols has taken the residents of Fraser hostage.

He has threatened to vote no on PA33. Why would he do this if he voted yes on the budget knowing it didn’t mean anything if PA33 was voted down?

He is threatening to vote no because he doesn’t like the City Manager that was hired after a 4-3 vote.

Wayne wasn’t his choice. Everybody knows this.

Why not? Wayne seems like the right guy for the job.

Joe doesn’t like Wayne because Wayne doesn’t put up with Joe’s bullshit.

Since Joe didn’t get his City Manager choice, he has said he is going to vote down PA33.

“Tell your buddies to look for their pink slips.” Referring to Fraser Public Safety Officers. He was overheard saying.

If PA33 is voted down, cuts have to be made. FPS, Parks and Rec, Senior Center etc.

That’s why it is important for the residents to show up to the June 8th City Council Meeting and let the council know that you will not be held hostage!! You want your city services to remain the same!!


Maybe after the meeting you can ask Joe about the last time he was a HOSTAGE TAKER!!

Of 2 automobiles.

Joe Nichols Robo Call.

By Mr. Tocco.

Joe Nichols robo call for Wednesday June 7 2017 the day before a meeting where the Fraser city council is to approve the funding for the budget they passed 7-0 back in May.

Here are the state rules on robo calls and revealing who paid for this which Nichols did not do. More backroom deals and games from Nichols and crew it seems.

subject: Disgusting behavior.

mailed-by: gmail.com

Good afternoon,

After reading emails today sent from Joe Nichols and Matt Hemelberg over the past 4 days it is clear that they are not taking the job they were elected to do seriously. They are constantly engaged in political gamenship.all because they didn’t get the city manager candidate they wanted.

Threatening pink slips to city employees who do the job they were hired to do every day over something so petty is even beneath both of you.

Demanding “investigations” because people expressed their God given first amendment right to say they were concerned about the direction of the city and their lively hood is dictator like behavior.

Saying people who have dedicated their lives to serve others and slam them by alleging they are “unprofessional” because they are worried about their families future is beyond the pale and quite frankly moronic.

Alleging that if they were called to your home they would not perform the job they are paid and trained to do shows the absolute lack of respect you have always had for them.

With all the incidents of terrorism, shootings of cops and other incidents acting like this to dedicated public officials is just warped.

Also who in the hell sits at a fatality accident scene to “observe” if city employees are doing what they are supposed to be doing? Being neither of you work in FPS or DPW I’m pretty sure you are the least qualified individuals to make any assessment on the job being done. Sitting at a scene where a person DIED to score a cheap political point is one of the more grotesque things I have ever heard of in politics.

Disgusting behavior from elected officials.

So I too will be contacting not only the people that Matt said he was and make sure they know EXACTLY what is going on here in the Hamlet. I also will be contacting others in town that have connections to make sure that the public officials who are here are on the up and up.

Of course, the F.B.I. is crawling through Macomb County right now so you never know if they are watching any of this. I truly hope they are.

Now that I’m also a front page contributor at Red State which has an audience of 5 to 10 million views per month, I will make sure I document all the stupidity that you have brought down on this city. The Low Budget Podcast just got some more rocket fuel and I will use it. BTW here is todays stellar show

One last thing.

If I hear one more murmur, one more whisper, that I have “something coming to me” I will not hesitate to go down to city hall and file whatever form the very professional people in FPS tell me to fill out. The days of bullying and intimidating are over.

Do the right thing for the citizens of this city or get out of the way of people that will.

Matt you might want to consider next time instead of vampire gawking a fatal accident to settle the “Hot Patch” score, that you just go pay your fine for that B.S. flyer you put out. Being you are not running again try to do the right thing on the way out.


By the way Joe, you are the worst Mayor this city has ever had. I’m pretty sure of that by a country mile.

Joe Disses The Cops AGAIN

By T. LaDuke

Now it is Joe Nichols turn.

Joe Nichols has thinner skin than rice paper.

The guy that to date has insulted residents who have the audacity to disagree with him, shut off citizens mics during participation, had ME removed for laughing during a council meeting and has been caught on an open mic degrading the current city manager and other citizens….does not like when people who are professional question him.

After the Special Meeting Tuesday “THE MAYOR” was overheard saying that people down at city hall better get ready to get “pink slips” being he and the other two compadres were not going to vote to fund the budget with P.A. 33. ( COLLUSION ANYONE)

This was in retaliation that Joe did not get his choice for city manager.

Multiple people heard this threat and if Joe wants to dispute that please do. Guess who will win a credibility contest here? Professionals down at city hall or Joe?

This is what we call a quid pro qou. The only problem is this is threatening the services of this city and with people’s livelihoods.

So some city workers took to social media and voiced mild displeasure. The most horrible thing I found was that Joe was called the WORST MAYOR OF THIS CITY.

Of course, that is subjective but I would agree with that. Congrats Doug Hagerty!!!!!!!

Here is the email exchange. As always enjoy the spelling from the butt hurt wonder of Fraser and his Acting Like Mayor Butt Hurtness.

GM Wayne & George,

The AM Hemelberg and in the past 24 hours several residents have contacted me and made
aware of some very degrading posts directly about The Mayor (Me) on social media by officers
of FPS and their spouses.
I have CC’d our CA’s office in this email, and I am requesting a full formal investigation be
This is highly unprofessional behavior and creates the public perception of divide, when I have
only been supportive of FPS since being elected.
Poor judgement on behalf of PSO continues to be a pattern displayed on social media, as
almost a year ago I was contacted by several residents regarding a racially insulting post made
be another officer then, with no disciplinary action taken.
This has shaken my wife deeply, that should we have an emergency with our son, grandson, or
at our home that some in FPS may purposely delay response causing great harm or death?
Please keep me informed as to the progress of this investigation, which I hope will be quickly

Joe Nichols
Mayor City of Fraser

You might be asking what is my favorite part of this diaper rash induced tirade. Glad you asked. “some very degrading posts directly about The Mayor (Me)

If you really have to remind people that YOU ARE THE MAYOR after all the embroidery you have purchased ( actually the city has) maybe that should give you a clue you are not all that and a bag of chips. Probably being you ate the chips. Like a whole truckload.

Acting Just Like The Mayor Matty Hemelberg had to jump in.



Please follow up with this matter as soon as possible. I will be calling Randy Wimbley
at Fox news and Simon Shayket at Channel 7. Both have stated to me they would love
to meet up for info pertaining to Fraser to write an article. I am forwarding them the
information from social media and asking them to due an article on this issue so the
residents of our city can see what is transpiring in our city. Transparency is the key to
good goverment and I dont believe this issue should be hidden from our citizens. I
would like them to see why I am voting no on this millage on thursday. I will be asking
these news reporters to come to the meeting next week to get a possible story on the
milage for FPD and the disrespect given by our officers to the elected officials who have
to make this difficult decesion to pass this milage. Just want to keep you all in the loop
and be transparent on my next move with this unprofessional behavior by our FPD
officers. Its a shame because we do have alot of profesional officers and just a few bad
apples might ruin it for everyone in the department. I am also going to have them look
into our voulenteer firefighters and inform the public on how our city keeps people on
the force who could be considered not fit for duty and a liability to the city and
taxpayers. Im also going to reach out to the state and our insurance company also. My
opinion is that its just to keep a vote going their way but needs to be addressed for the
sake of a lawsuit being brought forth for a pre existing injury which could happen. But
dont worry I am sure after a few investigations they will get to the bottom of it. Thanks.
Have a great day.

So Matt just said that he was not going to vote to fund the budget he voted on being someone said Joe was the worse Mayor ever for threatening people and their families with pink slips, because their city manager choice was not hired.

Yup. You read that right.

Matt gives me a BUNCH of great ideas though for reaching out to the media for Thursday’s meeting. I think they are going to be very interested in what is going on here in Fraser. Very interested. The behavior of some of these public officials is really appalling. You are reading some of it here. 

Here is Matt contacting city attorney Jack Dolan with his concern and once again another threat of a non-vote if his version of “discipline” is not enforced.


I think we need to have and investigation into why our FPD Officers feel that it is
professional to go about social media and degrade our city and our Mayor. I feel this is
something that meeds to be handled ASAP. There needs to be disciplinary action taken
on these comments being published. We talk about how we put our FPD officers up on
a pedestal of having such high standard. This type of behavior is an embarrassment to
our city. If this doesn’t get handled immediately and no discipline is given I think there is
going to be a big issue with the millage for FPD getting approved. This typw of
misconduct is unacceptable. Please let me know what can and will be done for these
inmature and degrading comment by some of our so called high standard officers.
Thank you and have a great day.


Matt knows all about “inmature” 


So here is the breakdown.

After the city manager Joe, Matt and Yvette did not want was hired, Joe decided to go on a temper tantrum and say “pink slips” were coming. City employees who just do the job they were hired to do, go to social media and show concern. 

The 1st amendment protects that right. Joe disregards that as often as he can being he is scared of it. He does not care what you think…only that you do what he wants. Otherwise, he will kick and scream like a child. A 47-year-old child. 

Also, Matt is openly threatening Police and Fire employees in this city and saying that they are not professional.


The PSO’s in this city on a daily basis are more professional in an hour’s time than Joe and Matt are in a year. 

At a time when terrorist attacks, school shootings, and crime is an issue this is how the Mayor and Acting “Just Like” The Mayor want to treat these professionals in uniform.

Fraser….are you sick of this behavior yet?

You should be.




Matt Disrespects The Cops And DPW In Fraser

By T.LaDuke.

Some days you just have to stare in amazement at the incredibly stupid stuff elected officials do.

Matt Hemelberg and Joe Nichols take this to a totally different level.

First, let’s look at ACTING JUST LIKE MAYOR Matthew Hemelberg.

Matt is curious about a fatal accident that happened in Roseville but started as a theft in Fraser. All emails are as is with all the spelling imperfections you have come to love from Matt.

So Matt has been hanging out at a fatal accident for over 30 minutes? That is kinda gross. Does he think he is going to get a heating and cooling gig out of this?

Director Rouhib explains to Matt what happened so he can rest his weary mind.

For clarification purposes of what follows, I received a call from BJ Thursday afternoon asking
me to get Dave K to come back to the accident scene because Roseville Police wanted to take
a statement from him as he witnessed the accident. He was in my office informing me as to
what had happened and he was visibly shaken. He witnessed the theft of equipment from our
city owned trailer and tried to get a license plate number but he couldn’t locate the vehicle once
it had entered a sub division. He returned to tell the employees about what he had observed so
it could be reported as he was having trouble with his cell phone. As he was approaching the
trailer he observed a cloud of smoke and an accident at Masonic and Kelly. At no time did he
pursue the vehicle in the accident.
As an aside, I think that it’s great that our employees are watching each other’s back and that
our employees do not have tunnel vision. I find it’s better to be “slow to criticize and quick to
It’s not online but I am sure I can have a disc made for you.
George T. Rouhib Jr.

So councilperson extraordinaire Matt Hemelberg just happened to be at a traffic accident. Amazing how Joe, Matt and Yvette are ALWAYS around accidents isn’t it? He is SO CONCERNED that a Fraser DPW worker is there he just HAS TO ASK what is going on.

Of course, it is just a coincidence that the DPW fellow involved in this was the same DPW worker that was involved in the HOT PATCH incident where Matt got caught getting undervalued goodies from the city.

Matt is NOT DONE.

Could I please come pic up the PSI disc Monday afternoon. If it is easier I could bring in a flash drive and have Kelly or your Secretary copy it for me. I would like to vet this disc to check myself if there is any reason to move forward on taking this investigation to the Sheriffs department. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Appreciate it.

Our boy just does not get that the accident part was in Roseville, but who cares, why ruin a good drinking story. I’m sure the Sheriff dept will love this tale. Maybe you could go with Joe and file an O.M.A. violation while you are at it.

Maybe how about this…..

While you are at the county Matt go into Karen Spranger’s office and pay the fine you have owed for not filing your campaign finance reports on time. You are at $1000.00 bucks and the clock is gonna start ticking again.

Listed below is the paperwork of Matt Hemelbergs refusal to pay his campaign fines for over a year.

CTE Matthew Hemelberg -138785 Campaign Finance Complaint

So what did we learn…..

Matt seems to like hanging out at accidents that resulted in a tragic death trying to score cheap political points against a whistleblower.

I don’t need to go on being that is pretty warped and sick, but he also is voting on funding the city budget and is ignoring his campaign violations.

Fraser…..have you had enough of these people yet?
