Another letter in the mail

Do we have another Arlen Specter in the wings? I haven't quite figured out what is going on with some of the candidates running for office this year.

Is not/did not Mr. Torrey run as a Democrat in the last go round? He is apparently running again under the same banner but with some different twists.

When you run for Second Warden as a Dem. and the guy running for First Warden is also endorsed and put forward by the Dems., why on earth would you attack him in a box holder mailing? What's up with that? Is there no verbal intercourse between members of the same party as to philosophy and agenda? Sounds to me like things are a little fragmented over there.

A new roof and a fresh coat of paint is NOT a solution of any sort! I don't think that coat of paint is going to keep the new roof up there for very long. In my experience if you are going to rehab a building you start with the foundation or what ever underpinnings are there. This is no more than a tourniquet, band aid, approach to a body that needs major surgery. What are the future plans NOW being drawn up to ameliorate this predicament? Any? Just WHAT is under consideration? Time frame? And just where do you propose to get the money?

Oh Yeah, the Old Harbor Dock. Last year it was deemed necessary to hire a Clerk of the Works for the princely sum of $100,000.00 to "oversee" the construction of said edifice. This year there IS NO daily, on the job person there to watch the "works". Whatever made that need disappear? I have noticed the Town Manager appears at the site now and then. Is this the oversight we previously needed? Has she the necessary "degrees" to do this job? I'm sure that "no money " will be the answer, but do we not employ a building inspector with all the necessary qualifications to do that job at no additional cost to the taxpayers? The building business has kind of slowed down so he might have a few minutes a day to devote to this endeavor, if his boss would tell him to so bestir himself. WUWT?

As far as Ms Gaffets attending a lot of the board and committee meetings. WHY? don't you trust your appointees to do the job without your attendance in the audience to intimidate and/or "steer" them too the conclusion you would like? Leave them the hell alone till they bring a recommendation too you. Is that not why you have these, boards, committees, and commissions, so that YOU don't have to attend to all those matters personally?

Well we'll see how it all shakes out in12-14 days. Then we'll see what happens after that. In this economy as bad as it is, I don't see much hope for any money for much of anything except the bare day to day expenses like wages, and bill paying.

Hey guys, you want to save a pocketful of money? Turn off the friggin' street lights!
Nobody needs them except the BIPCO! TIFN

Sounds like a bit of in-fighting... :-) Sad that you don't have any real choices up there! And you and I both know it's ALL about the $$... sigh...
