Salisbury Council Vice President On Food Stamps

Its been reported last week Laura Mitchell spent $271.00 (+or-) on groceries at Sam's Club and paid for it with Food Stamps.

I'm sorry Ladies & Gentlemen but as long as I have known Mrs. Mitchell she has not held a full time job and completely depends on her income from the City Council. 

Flip burgers, iron shirts, ANYTHING but be a public figure sucking off the taxpayer dole because your just too lazy or busy to do REAL work. Laura also lives in the subsidized housing section of Moss Hill.

It's been rumored her Husband lost his job at SU for allegedly the same reasons he lost a previous job. 

Come election time we'll be opening up with some major information about Mrs. Mitchell, all of which will end her political career. 

To those liberal readers who want to come back here with comments feeling sorry for Mrs. Mitchell, don't even waste your time. She makes me sick, as an American.

Certainly she should spend time seeking some type of employment instead of spending time in politics. Guess it does not bother her which makes me even madder

She told me that she was disabled and due to a medical condition she was not employable????

She's trash!

Almost everyone is employable. My half brother is mentally challenged and works a 35 hour work week every week.

They're also driving brand new cars.

If she can attend all those meetings in Annapolis, work sessions, ribbon cuttings and council meetings she is certainly employable.

Her medical condition is that she is a free-loader. She is supposed to be because she's a Democrat.

2/3 of the people in the US are on food stamps, thanks to the dumocraps.
It won't improve anytime soon!

Why then did she tell everyone during the election she was going to college working on becoming a CPA! She lied to the voters and her Kampaign Klowns lied for her also. She is a lazy PIG!

The majority of African Americans are receiving entitlements in some shape or form. She married one so what does that tell you No it's not a racist comment it is a fact.

I heard that her husband had to resign from Salisbury University because of sexual harassment charges. If so he is a pig.

National Night Out Prayer Service

Posted on August 6, 2013 by jimiretonformayor

Last night clergy, from various houses of religion in Salisbury, joined Mayor Ireton at Parkway Church of God to join in song and prayer for our City and our emergency responders. This service is held the night before National Night Out which is a night to bring together citizens of the community and members of the Police and Fire Departments for an evening of fun and safety.

She doesn't pay for services from people here in town either. Credit bureau has a nice file on her.

10:00, I disagree. If the story is true, how do you justify the rest of us paying for her life style. I know that they have or recently had 2 new cars, I know that she travelsoon"city business" and overspent the travel budget last year. O know that she often takes her husband along. If she can do all of these things, then she should be able to hold a job and she and her husband should be able to support themselves. She is puic official and should be setting a good example. There are plenty of people who ligitimately can't work. Many are too proud to take the benefits. Many are elderly and in poor health. She give needed assistance a bad name and takes something that others need more...shameful.

God praise you Joe for exposing this to our community. If it weren't for you, this household would have no idea what is going on.

Great piece of journalism Joe. Of course we'll never see this in the daily rag. Anyone who votes for her in the future is anti american. She is capable of working and gives a black eye to us hard working americans. She should be impeached.

So we have someone on the council that can't make her own way in life yet has a say in how the city handles things? Isn't that like putting the fox in the hen house?

I am glad Joe bought this to the attention of us readers. I am so sick and tired of these government freeloaders. I feel if you can be on the council you have time to hold down a job. Oh I am just at a lost for words right now.Why is we have to get up each day work 40+ hours just so our tax money can go to them to sit on their ass and wait for a check. She is nothing but a phony and fraud!

Is there an agency that receives complaints to investigate her receiving handouts that may be unjustified. I feel being on the council is a job which should allow her to work outside of her elected position. Seems obvious she could work.

Why does this not surprise me - loud mouth Mitchell - boy she has nerve to even show up and sit at that table let alone vote on anything. Freeloader, that's all she is a freeloader. And I guess she thinks it's perfectly alright. What a trashy person.

I also question how she gets away with overages in travels to Annapolis etc and we pay for it. Also explain to me her recent picture in the "metropolitan" August issue for Salisbury Zoo's Zoobilation gives her name as Laura Nitche with Miguel Mitchell her husband standing next to her, miss type? I did'nt vote for her and never would .

Can't wait for Fatboy to come to her defense on his little poor excuse of a blog. I love how that PIG is laughing at everyone in Salisbury!!! You got to work to pay your bloated tax bill so that PIG can take pictures of food before he sucks it down. Remember when he quit his blog and started up another in his attempt to shakedown local restaurants to give him free food while "reporting" about handicap accessibility? Some workers at Zia's told me about him coming in with Miss Piggy and ordering a two table full of food, and when it came bill time, well Fatty wanted a free meal and threaten the manager with a bad review

Geez, These liberals today...
This is where public SHAME, humiliation and discrimination are GOOD things. It serves to keep people like this and Cook (also on the assistance dole) out of politics and the public eye.
They have NO dignity whatsoever.
And yes, Chuck is a communist.
Funny how none of them have any self respect... Weiner, Spitzer, Clinton, Sharpton, King, etc...

All of Laura Mitchell's difficulties show me she is a weak person. Loser husband who can't even put a roof over their heads that's not a rental. She has to rely on the government to eat. Not someone who made very good life decisions. She has at least one son which it's likely she couldn't afford to have.
These kind of people are easily controlled by others. Not a good quality in a politician.

Not a "bigot" at all 2:12. Just people who have higher standards then you do. Some of us expect our government officials, law and policy makers to show that they are good decision makers, use good judgment, are fiscally responsible. Bottom line when you use poor judgment and have such a mess of a life it's clear your judgment is lacking and you aren't capable of making good sound decisions.

Anonymous said...

She is a disgrace. How 2-faced to sit on the council getting paid with my taxpayer money and making poor decisions on how to throw more money away. Neither she or Shields should be allowed any decision making and shouldn't be on the council.

This proves she is in it for all the perks and easy money after all she kisses the xxxxxxx of the mayor.

If someone legitimately receives public assistance that would not make me think they are unqualified to hold elected office. However all of Laura's activities to further her ambitions...all those co.mittee meetings, boards and travel illustrate that she could be working enough to support her family without public assistance. Why doesn't her husband get a job too? It is neither fair to those of us who work and pay taxes to fund the assistance that she doesn't deserve nor those who legitimately need the help. Laura should stop to consider that her worst day is better than the best day that many will ever have. She is a user.

Here is why I have a problem with it.

She cannot support herself, but she votes on a $60 million budget every year. She doesn't have to pay taxes, but she voted to raise the property tax rate from $. 83 to $. 89 per accessed.

She votes to tax people, but pays zero taxes!?!? How is that ok?

I worry when I spend more than $30.00 at Sams/Grocery Store and when I do, it has to last several days worth of meals/supplies. So, she has $270.00 worth of free grub - wish I would have been standing in the line behind her when she was checking out as she would have loved to hear my comments about people getting free stuff...especially if they are able to work. She came around to my house several years ago when she was looking for voters, and she sure looked fine to me.

IF she's using food stamps that should be reported and checked out because her activities and life style suggest that she is quite capable of working rather than taking the assistance. IF she was living in subsidized housing while her husband was a college professor, how can that be allowed to happen? All the officials investigating should have to take a look at is how much travel she did and activities she participated in for POLITICAL purposes last year to see right through what's going on. Oh, that's right...the truth might not make her cronies look too good, so will it be investigated at all?
