Here’s The Scoop … 11/10/09 LBTS Commission Meeting … #3 … Macho Macho Man

OUT OF “MUGS?”…

Dear Readers … There was no time to recover from the  embarrassing  “How many millions in 2.5 billion”  exchange between Vice Mayor McIntee and Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff during presentations (prev. post)…before McIntee was in full metal jacket mode once more… (Do those jackets come in couture?)….This time it was when local Restaurateur Louis Marchelos came to the podium for his allotted 3 minutes… Mr Marchelos spoke about a “kinder, gentler commissioner getting in touch with his feminine side”… The gloves came off…and we don’t mean the ones with the rabbit fur lining…Them was fightin’ words to the Vice Mayor…

VM- ” That’s insulting Mayor, I’ve gotta, that’s an absolutely insulting remark!”

Louis Marchelos-” I did not mention a name sir.”

VM- ” We all knew what you were saying. It’s insulting and it’s outrageous and I object to it!”

Comm Silverstone-” I make a motion that we remove this person.”

Mayor Minnet-“Gentlemen.”

VM- “There’s a motion on the floor. I second it!”

LM- ” Is this a point of suppression?”

Mayor-” Town Attorney, I will ask you for your opinion, please.”

Town Atty.- ” You have had a proper motion and a second and we should have a vote on it.”

Mayor “Ok”

Comm. Dodd- wanted he Town Atty. to answer whether this comment “a commissioner getting in touch with his feminine side” was a personal attack by Mr.Marchelos or “a willful interruption by the Vice Mayor when Mr. Marchelos was making his public comments… Loud applause were heard throughout the hall…

VM- “Wait a minute! Who’s running the meeting?”

Comm. Dodd answered the Mayor was, but he added that the people in the audience saw that his was really “a willful interruption” by Mcintee…and and asked to put it to the vote…

The Mayor thanked Comm. Dodd and said to call the roll…

VM- ” What’s the vote? To remove him [Marchelos] from the speaker?”

The Mayor said McIntee made the motion and Silverstone chimed in quite loud and proud-ly that it was he who made the motion to remove the speaker and the Mayor in turn said to the VM that it was he who made  the 2nd…implying the VM  should know what the vote was for! ….

The Vice Mayor jutted out that Adams apple in a quite a menacing and  jerky …(pun intended)  fashion…..”I second it, Mayor!”…The audience response can be heard quite loudly as they watched from their seats below…. asking each other when the “madness” (another pun) was going to end!…

LM- ” This is a point of suppression. I’m sorry, I did not mention a name.”

Comm. Silverstone- He’s out of order again, Mayor!”

Mayor- ” Mr. Marchelos there is a motion on the table to remove you from public speaking by Commissioner Silverstone and a second by Vice Mayor McIntee. Madam Clerk would you please call the roll.”

The vote failed.. 2-3 with Clottey, Dodd and Minnet voting no…Louis began again, after Comm. Clottey said ” Can I say something, I do ask that you be a little more respectful please.”…Now that’s the pot calling the kettle black…after Comm. Clottey’s last Comm. meeting and her agenda items for this one!…YIKES!…Mr Marchelos said yes..

Mr Marchelos then went on to finish…what he started…

Touchy, touchy this evening………and we don’t just mean those “Burly Broom Boys”……we mean the microphones left on……As we went to a break following the last public speaker …Comm. Clottey is seen and heard turning to Comm. Silverstone and apologizing to him for her vote to not remove Mr. Marchelos!… It’s a girl thing!…

Tea anyone?…The cups are in the kitchen…

more to come…
