Comcast Ch. 78 (if it’s back on the air?) /http://lbts.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.php?view_id=2

Dear Readers…Please excuse the down time online yesterday……Time has been consumed in collecting diatribes and data for future featured posts recounting and reconciling the well documented records of those who will be looking to “sweep” aside the summation of their service in their first treacherous term serving our Town….

They officially sat on the dais in March 2006…..producing one overriding thunderous theme that should fill even the most ardent of backers, back in the day…with doubt, dismay and downright disdain for daring to believe in the “BROOM BOYS”…..

In the meantime … front and center tonight……we have…

Vice Mayor McIntee believing “Nobody remembers anything but the last 6 months of your term”…. With no items on the agenda,mums the word… perhaps he’s bringing a paperback and Prozac?… Hand that man the gavel!….. The “big fish” is a “Flounder!”

Commissioner Silverstone …can  he cheerlead his way out of explaining his role in the Town Manager’s lifetime contract that was indeed included in the May 2007 backup when he and his BFF McIntee voted for it….by putting on New Business 16 p. “Explanation of function of Town Government”?….Never able to stop himself from a free fall…. he’s followed it up with the ever popular items 16 g. “Discussion and/ or action for amendment to Ordinance 2009-19-Vacation Rentals”….(Town Hall East prevailed …no more 7 days?)….and  16 t. “Cost study for police services, $2,500″…. just add them to the list ……

Town Manager Esther Colon….The recipient of the biggest coup ever seen around these parts….Catch Colon’s Cheshire Cat -iness coming from that $250,000 cache configuring ways to search and destroy ….terminating the “At Will “employee of the month…the Town Fire Marshall  ….(this month’s BSO Chief Gooding) …Playing cat and mouse with the record number responses of RFPs….zooming in on a  “Gotcha”  and causing quite a ruckus just to return to her heavy-hand-picked “chosen”- few contractors coming to call….Orchestrating Ordinances first reading….Draft Resolutions….LETF “deference” letters…..Unilaterally sending out selective surveys skewing townwide height limits (“slinging” 33′ when it is 44′)….Posturing and postponing Public Records Requests….practically picking the pockets of those taxpayers participating in the practice of “guaranteed” open government for all….Contentiously, Colon’s chomping at the bit….to collect her contractual wad of cash….callously crippling this community until we all cry “uncle”!… Any bets….that there’s a “knock-out”round?….Hmmmm…..Demoting and demoralized?

Commissioner Stuart Dodd….can be counted on to be well prepared…ready to ask the tough questions we would all like the answers to ….Listen close…it will all be neatly wrapped in the King’s English “Stu-isms”…  those big and little “schemes”…The Town Manager’s payback for his insistence to better the bid process for the benefit of the Town…and now stepping up for the total disregard for valuing a constituent’s confidentiality in e-mailing their Commissioner of choice…after the Vice Mayor came a- “fishin” for retribution…Throwing out the “hook” despite the Vice Mayor’s “deleting” all of his own “bait”…. The “Bully” could be facing the “belly of the beast”…when this “whale of a tale”  lands on somebody’s Sun-shiny State desk!….Ahoy, Matey!….

Mayor Minnet….Didn’t just waltz into the center seat….No “minuet” no “rock and roll”… no shrinking violet is she!…. She earned the center spot, she earned the respect of those who had their doubts, by weathering the constant storms to her left and to her right …..If she wobbled, she steadied herself, she stood her ground, took her knocks graciously and learned from her mistakes. The center seat is hers again, if she so desires… and it offers her the chance participate with gavel in hand and Mayoral motions rightly returned  by those who will sit beside her….She’ll be wearing her “Captain’s wings” tonight….”stabilizing”  the cabin pressure …making sure all  systems are a go!…

Commissioner Clottey…considering you currently convene conspicuously counter to your campaign candor and you’re clueless to constituents ….Can you change?….The countdown is upon you, with contenders calling for Commissioners with character….Will you find some or be the only cartoon variety cast in the minority role come March?….Tonight the motions made….will make or break “the Commissioner” in the middle of her term…. This ain’t no midlife crisis!…

Fasten your seat belts…..

more to come…..
