MAD MIKE! It appears Mike Madigan has violated Grand Island’s Ethics Laws!

This is what happens you are out of control and are out on a radical mission to hurt someone.  Mike Madigan has been out of control since he took office.  He has time after time after time just reacted to the issues in play without ever doing any meaningful due diligence before he acts.  You are like a 7 year old bully/child on the playground.  Since he has taken office he has not set forth anything for the good of Grand Island.  MAD MIKE is simply acting as a puppet for a select few in the Grand Island Republican Committee to Obstruct our new Supervisor.  He is trying to inflict vengeance for Mary Cooke and Mark Nemeth on Nathan McMurray because they lost in the 2015 Local Election.

Mike, those people who voted for you did so because they believed in you.  They believed you would act in the best interests of Grand Island.  They didn’t elect you for any other reason.  You however seen to have a radical agenda to be an OBSTRUCTIONIST.  Now I know why people call you MAD MIKE
