Be sure to call into Abdul's Radio Show tomorrow morning at 6:30am so that you can ask Terry Dilk any questions you have about his actions so far as Mayor of Beech Grove. The Am Radio Station is WXNT and is 1430 on your dial. The phone number is 228-1430 I think. I am wondering if Abdul will allow questions from callers since Terry Dilk is Brian Bosma's pick for Mayor.
Is there any truth to the rumor that Chris Duffer has instructed the IT Fireman to restrict all city computers from using Facebook except for Joey Fox's? Everyone can enjoy watching Joey Fox tried to hide the fact that he will be continually working to get the Republicans elected which is why he was hired in the first place.
I would very much enjoy posting proof of anyone working on campaigns while being paid to work by the citizens of Beech Grove.
Mayor Dilk and Cindy Kirchhofer during her campaign were telling voters in Beech Grove that Joe Wright was the one who wasted the 6 million dollars of TIF Bond money and that it wasn't them. Here are the RDC videos that show that Terry and Cindy were the President and Vice President while all of these Bond Issues occured. I have requested the SIGNED dockets from 2006 thru 2010 so that you will have documented proof of these two twisters of the truth. You will also see in the videos the Speaker of the House for the State of Indiana's involvement.
By the way, at the beginning of Cindy's campaign these videos were taken down off the City of Beech Grove's website and repeated requests were made that they be replaced. Why would they be removed?
The link to the RDC Videos
So in one of his first acts as the new Mayor Terry Dilk hires his campaign manager/PR Lady/rewards someone who helped get Cindy Kirchoffer elected.
They lay off employees we actually need then deny them unemployment benefits and turn right around and add as Assistant for Dilk? Terry Dilk can't manage 3 or 4 departments? How can you be mayor and not be able to do that? What a complete joke the guy is.
So here we have Joey Fox who trashed Terry Dilk and all of his buddies every chance he got even to the point where he was going to run Susie Day's campaign against Terry Dilk being bought and paid for by Terry Dilk our new Mayor.
You can't make stuff up this funny. I was there face to face with Davidson, Wells, and Fox when they all said they had to figure out a way to get rid of Terry Dilk and his crew then somehow all of them end up working for Terry Dilk and his crew. How does this happen?
Let's all pay close attention to Joey Fox's actions during the campaign. Will he have campaign meetings on city time in city vehicles like Sam Merl did?
I had really thought of Davidson, Wells, and Fox as 3 of the bright spots in the Republican Party in Beech Grove and now I come to find out that more important than serving the people of Beech Grove is gaining power and being bought and paid for. 3 20 somethings down the drain already.
This truly is a sad day for Beech Grove, I can not tell you how disappointed I am in these young men.

Beech Grove Mayor Terry Dilk announced today that he has appointed Joey Fox to be his chief of staff and communications direction.
Fox, 22, is a 2007 graduate of Beech Grove High School and is studying political science and civic leadership at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. He starts the job on Feb. 22.
Dilk was appointed by a party caucus to complete the term of former Mayor Joe Wright, who resigned in January.
The term runs through Dec. 31, and Dilk intends to run for election this year to a full term.
The mayor announced Fox's appointment at a Board of Works meeting.
He will direct communications for the city, be the city's spokesman and manage day-to-day operations of the mayor's office.
"Joey brings so much energy to our efforts. I have committed my administration to better communication, and I have entrusted Joey with that responsibility," Dilk said in a written statement.
Fox worked part-time for the city as a high school student and for a year after he graduated, before leaving to study music education, first at the University of Miami and later at Ball State University.
He returned to Marion County to work for the county Republican Party in 2009 and most recently has been a bailiff in the Marion County Juvenile Court system.
"I am honored to accept Mayor Dilk's invitation to serve my hometown," Fox said in the statement. "Good communication is going to be critical as we move forward."
THIS CAME TO ME IN AN EMAIL ALSO SENT OUT TO THE LOCAL MEDIA OUTLETS. DILK, DUFFER, JOEY, AND JOE WRIGHT NOT THE SAME GUY? COME ON, MAN!
After doing some research and making a few calls the announcement from Beech Grove city officials naming Joey Fox chief of staff was premature and may have to be retracted.
The 2011 budget which was approved by the city council has no funds for this position. Adding this position would take an amendment for appropriations with approval by the city council.
Business as usual with the republicans, they announce something they can't do and now as in the past will have to go back and fix it. The interesting thing is should any of the republican council members vote nay, the whole thing unravels. Knowing that the citizens are unhappy about losing the cities dispatch due to lack of funds, will the council once again go against the people they represent and allow this to happen.
Two weeks into Terry Dilk's administration and already the" we can do what we want attitude" continues from the republicans.
My Opinion Joey is a fine young man, but rules are rules for a reason.
