    This is what you get when you continually vote against progress in MC. All of the old people like LVS who don’t want to spend a buck to improve the schools and amenities of the city can be thanked for what MC has become. Congratulations! Meanwhile, all of the young educated kids leave and never come back. Enjoy your dying town. Those continuing to fight for progress in MC, good luck you’ve got your work cut out for you.

      Thank God we got rid of Dumb Asses like the Racist. We have spent millions on the downtown and let the rest of the city go to hell. Time to get rid of the downtown Idiots that bleed our city dry and bring in all these thugs.

        Hi LVS. Nada still kicks your butt every time and where he lives is an irrelevant argument.

      This hotel has been a trouble spot for a long time. Time to shut it down.

    There’s a huge problem in Mason City. Section 8 housing has brought us drug dealers.and people unwilling to get a job and work. Section 8 housing here needs to be shut down. Tear down the slum houses and get these people out of our town. These people can go right back where they came from.
