Here is a woman being honored solely on her color and not here work, which has been all over the local media as being incompetent and pathetic.

Way to honor laziness.

Agreed!! To be rewarded for being of color and lazy is PATHETIC!!!!!!

Dr. Information,

Whether Ms. Ard will be known as a roaring success as a city manager is yet to be known. For sure she is not incompetent. She for sure is not pathetic. And, most definitely she is not lazy.

Dr. Information

Yup, you are right. When is the last time a city manager was given a last chance shot at doing her job right by her bosses? Thanks for proving my point.

Brick Hamland

Shouldn't they fire her first and then celebrate that she is history...

deertracker

She's not being honored for her work!

Dr. Information

They are honoring her for her position and color both of which have nothing to do with her incompetence.

deertracker

What exactly is "her position of color"?

ladydye_5

So many are trying to get her fired yet they are HONORING her for her COLOR???? WOW.

deertracker

Read the article PLEASE! She's been Black her entire life. She's being honored for her accomplishments as a Black woman. WOW! Congratulations Ms. Ard. Your journey is note worthy.

samiam

Noteworthy maybe but not in a good way!

whattheBucks

Her journey needs to continue !

ladydye_5,

The jury is still out on her success as a city manager here in Sandusky. Black History Month is a celebration of Black History. She definitely is a part of that history here in Sandusky.

I hope she does become a successful city manager for Sandusky. To hope otherwise is kind of counterproductive.

mimi's word

With her record, I feel that she should not be honored for any reason. I also feel she is doing a diservice to her color and gender by her actions. People want it both ways...treat me equally but not when it comes to color ot gender.

deertracker

You also think it's okay for dogs to kill babies. Go lay down!

SamAdams

I don't care if the City Manager is male, female, black, white, green, or purple. I care if the City Manager is doing the job. Ard isn't.

Meanwhile, most of us not only prefer to be color blind, but ARE color blind, and the woman gets recognized because she happens to be black. Wow. Way to reinforce the notion that color DOES matter! In this case apparently it's all that does. She sure can't be recognized for job performance!

santown419

Sam to say you are colorblind is bs. You always seem to have something to say when it comes to give anybody black any props. Plus you worship and love to quote false news and Limbaugh who had proven to hate blacks. You come on here and try to make yourself look good but constantly your posts prove different.

SamAdams

The only time I have something to say about somebody given props is when they're undeserved. And that includes those who, like Ard, are given props BECAUSE they're black.

deertracker

In Black America it is a major accomplishment just to get the job if you are a black woman! Duh? Don't pretend you don't know that! SMDH!!!!

rbenn

Your race card has expired please go to the end of the line. So tired of hearing this crap from liberals.

santown419

Wheres the race card.

deertracker

That's rbenns standby response whenever the word black is mentioned.

rbenn

No just tired of hearing all this feel sorry for me im black crap, get over it already. You don't reward poor job performance just because someone is of color, its lame and actually makes you look bad.

deertracker

No one is asking for your sympathy. Keep it. She is not being rewarded for her job performance. Pay attention!

rbenn

that's the problem moron, what about that don't you get

deertracker

Not my fault you don't comprehend well! Read the article over very slowly!

mimi's word

Just because she is a black woman does not mean she should be praised...if she were a black woman doing the job she was hired for then i would love to give her all the praise in the world.

santown419

Its amazing that all these people have a problem with anything concerning black peoples accomplishments but everyday we see white people getting recognized for things they shouldn't. Call it is everyone of you don't want blacks to get any notice stay quite and that will be it.

Dr. Information

So is she or is she not being awarded for her job performance or is it just a color thing? If its job performance, then this award is a joke, just like she is. If it is a color thing, why not recognize the black guy down the road who pays his child support and goes to work everyday?

She's a failure at her job and yet people want to honor her. Lol. Joke is on you.

DickTracey

Wow, you people are really hardcore. It is also very mean, but mostly hypocritical !

Obama was elected TWICE for being the color he is! Not for his accomplishments or the work he's done!

Black people, that NEVER voted in their lives, registered to vote in droves and bus loads.

Now because the same exact thing is happening at a local level, you hop on your free Obama phone to blog about it!

"Way to honor laziness"? Obama has played golf and had more vacations than all of us commenters put together!!
