How about another run Matt?

Whew, wiping away tears of hysterical laughter.

A two time loser.
First gets his butt spanked by the stupidest person to ever sit on the MC city council, one Janet Solberg.
How bad do you have to be to be beaten by that idiot Solberg?
Next he gets spanked by a geriatric retread, one John Jaszewski.


MC vote him out!

It’s a thankless job. Especially in this town which has a few very vocal, mean spirited senior citizens who fight progress tooth and nail. I respect the guy for giving it another go.

Gloating over things that STILL could backfire and bankrupt this city is not smart. He failed to list the numerous rate increases and the wagging tail behind every Lee proposal. Adams let us down. I thought he’d be his own honest voice, he was the same ole same ole. We need a born and bred MCitian is this position. The liberal agenda is dead.

Racist – Russia – Rubbish = socialism and B/S !

I noticed that Adams conveniently omitted the other things he has wholeheartedly supported during his tenure. He forgot to take credit for your recent property tax increases, your water, garbage and sewer rate increases, and the $8.4 million of taxpayers’ money he gave to Gatehouse Capital to put a hotel in downtown Mason City as a part of the River City Renaissance. I remember his 2016 campaign promise that he would be his own man; RIGHT!

He conned me once but never again. Adams is nothing but a Lee puppet.

Politicians and diapers have one thing in common: they should both be changed regularly… and for the same reason.
