Reading With Joe….TOSHIBA

By Joseph Tocco

Budget Meeting Tonight 7pm.

If you recall last month during the first wave of budget meetings Joe and Matt did ANOTHER investigation. This time…Phone Systems.

Seems they were unhappy that Michelle Kwiatkowski ( Systems Administrator) had not “checked out” the system that the city had invested in. They had an email from Toshiba saying we were essentially screwed.

Well a response was given and I wonder if Joe or Matt tonight will update us all on what that was. Being I am a betting man I know the odds are not good they will do the right thing.

Thankfully this video is just over 3 minutes long but it is hard to watch as Matt & Joe, shine on each other. I apologize in advance but I did feel keeping the part where Joe painfully reads the email sent to him had to stay in. Transparency and all.

One last thing. Why are they using their phones when the city purchased i-pads for them? I think Mr. LaDuke will have something on this soon.

See you at the meeting tonight!!!!!!

Attention Deficit Leads To Budget Deficits

The Peoples Mayor
AKA T.LaDuke

Fraser City Council Special Budget Meeting for Tuesday May-9-2017 was attended by professionals of the city who laid out their budget requests and answered questions of the council.

The meeting was also attended by citizens who voiced their concerns.

Mayor and Acting Like Mayor, Joe & Matt were too busy too busy to pay attention.

Here in this video Parks And Recreation board member Dave Winowiecki speaks to council. Joe and Matt could care less.

Next up Gary Placido ( who does his homework) speaks to council and Joe and Matt shuffle papers.

Of course anyone who has watched them know this is typical. Ignore those who speak well and act like they know more.

This is how they act to citizens who are respectfully addressing them, imagine if it was a low budget podcaster.

These are the people who are your representatives in public. On TV for the sinkhole, at other government meetings.

Would Joe and Matt ignore Candice Miller speaking to them? Mark Hackel? Gov. Snyder? Maybe this just reserved to the citizens they represent and pay the taxes here in town.

Question is Fraser…… you care?

We will soon find out.

Stealing A Sinkhole Update, Mayor Joe Style

By Joseph Tocco

Here is a letter delivered by Dan Heaton who is the Macomb County Public Works P.R.person, delivered to the Fraser senior housing residents on April 28th.

Now here is a letter delivered to the same Fraser seniors 4 days later on May 2nd.

Looks like the same thing doesn’t it? Except for the blurb on the end of the “Joe” one, they are the same.

We are going to hear this week about the city needing to watch all the dollars it can on the budget, yet Joe Nichols used city resources to copy and paste an update that was already given.

Once again this is a county issue.

Why were city resources used to duplicate this?

How much did this cost the city?

Why did Joe not give attribution to the county for their press update?

Candice Miller has done a great job tackling this problem and dealing with it. She does not seek the spotlight and just wants to do the job she was elected to do. Mrs Miller is so focused on the “job” part, she had her Public Relations person sign the update to the citizens of Fraser.

If Joe focused on his job instead of chasing the spotlight, he might be as successful as Candice Miller.

What do you think?

Doug Hagerty Strikes Again

By Joseph Tocco

Joe Gives Money Advice. Oh Boy

Joe Nichols is prepping for the budget by posting memes on his “safe’ Facebook page. If you have watched the budget “discussions” the last two years like I have, you know that a lot of words were used by Joe, but not much in the way of facts. This is a shame being for the past 30 years of my living here, budget time was an uneventful process.

So the former Mayor who endorsed Joe, had to chime in.

Now Doug was Mayor for four years and that ended (mercifully) in Nov of 2015. Does any one recall Doug saying that Fraser TIER 1 services would have to be combined with other cities by 2020?

When or where was Doug offering this “new mindset” he speaks of? Do you recall?

Has any official accounting firm like Plante Moran or someone from the Michigan Municipal League given Fraser this diagnosis? I will admit that I try to watch as many meetings as possible but I could have missed this.

During the last couple of elections it was said that Doug and his cronies ( Joe, Matt and Yvette are included in this) were in favor of eliminating the Fraser Police and rolling them into the Macomb County Sheriff Dept much like Mount Clemens was forced too. If I recall, they all have denied that was the goal. Yet is this not what Doug is saying we have to do and Joe just agreed with him?

What numbers does Doug have that the city manager, finance director, Abraham & Gaffney, P.C. CPA Firm, Plante Moran and all seven council members don’t have?

After Doug made his ridiculous claim that all of the homes on Eberlien had lost 50% of their value and that 40% of the homes in Fraser had lost 5% or more of their value with no actual data, when do we finally start asking him to “back up his claims with real data”?

Mr. LaDuke and his show tackled this glaring flaw here with Why Is Doug Hagerty Mad?

Anyone can make numbers up. Takes a real leader and honest person to back it up with facts.

Also Joe is half right about what Einstein said ( He left out the ” definition of insanity” in that quote) yet there is a greater point.

Doug and his circle of people have been involved in city government since 2003 in one way or another.

We have seen how Doug allowed the council to be found in violation of the Open Meetings Act over towing. Allowed the council to go for almost a full year with an empty seat which created confusion and also allowed bad information to get out about a possible sale of the senior center.

He also was accused of trying to trade a vote to get his friends,Fosters towing, the towing contract back after two company executives pleaded no contest to fraud charges stemming from insurance billings to AAA Michigan. ( Doug is this still being investigated? Fraser councilwoman files police report against mayor )

Fraser does need “bold changes.” I suggest those bold changes are too finally stop listening to Doug and the people he supports like Joe, Matt and Yvette and listen to those that actually back up what they say with facts.

Not just words.

Not just meaningless Facebook posts or hiding behind blocked accounts being they are scared too face up to scrutiny of those who can challenge their lack of knowledge and integrity.

As Einstein correctly said,

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Following Doug and those he has supported in their lack of facts and meaningless comments is the very definition of Insanity.

If Fraser is to move forward, the insanity must stop.

Governor Snyder And Mayor Anger Management

By Joseph Tocco

Gov. Snyder Does Not Know About This Guy.

Gov. Snyder has been embattled (rightly or wrongly) for his handling of Flint. A lot of that was out of his control and he did not know about.

Standing with a guy who has plead guilty to ripping off a lady’s change purse, has anger outbursts at city council meetings and has cut off the mic of women who just did not agree with him….bad move Governor.

Your staff is letting you down again. They need to do better research.

Joe And Doug. Screwing Up Fraser AND North Korea. Together.

By Joseph Tocco

Birds of a feather…….

A former Fraser Mayor and a current one that have helped screw up this city are now lecturing others how North Korea is “baiting” the United States into war. Alex Jones could not make this stuff up. How lucky are we that two people who have screwed up here locally can spot a screw up halfway across the world.

How. Lucky.

Seems reasonable

Joe Nichols actually says to someone “DON’T OVERSTATE YOURSELF”

Doug states he is NOT an expert and proceeds to act like one pulling numbers out of thin air

Remember who endorsed this disaster called Joe? DOUG HAGERTY

As Mr LaDuke has said on his show. Remember those who have had a hand in screwing this city up and who they endorsed in recent elections. The birds of a feather DO flock together statement makes a lot of sense.

If You Want To Leave So Bad

By Joseph Tocco


I appreciate the Dogood’s and Mr LaDuke giving me the chance to contribute here. As Mr.LaDuke prepares for his new show in Ann Arbor, they have agreed to allow me to contribute here to keep this site relevant.

I am embarrassed to start with Matt Hemelberg. After Thursday’s meeting, was pretty obvious that Matt wants to leave the city. This clip highlights this.

What do you think? I say just leave.

Will The Real Joe Nichols Stand Up!!!!

By Irwin M Fletcher.

As posted earlier this week on Fraser Mayor Joe Disses The Cops <<<< ( read this before you watch the video ) it seems the ever so un-noble Hizzzhoner wants to press that he really does like cops and does not think they are a waste of tax payer money.

Mr. LaDuke’s show and posts on this from yesterday show a interesting back and forth between Joe (Num Nums) Nichols and Yvette (What Conflict Of Interest) Foster.

Post on Yvette

Post on Joe

Less than a month ago though Joe was saying how hard the Fraser cops worked and how much he appreciated them. As long as they are not helping with clearing a traffic accident and wasting tax dollars like they used to with the Fosters.

My oh my, how time flies.

Watch This……Joe Loves The Cops….or Does He !?!?!?!?

BRAND NEW….Memes With Joe

Welcome to a brand new effort here at Fraser Mayor.

Memes With Joe

Joe loves to post memes offering advice and trying to belittle others. We will on occasion post them here so that YOU the public will be able to enjoy his brilliance also.

Hopefully he takes his own advice and does not stand in front of a mirror talking to himself.
