Here’s The Scoop….THE CIC EMMYS

The CIC EMMYS…

Can’t take credit for this one…thanks go to a faithful reader!….

What a missed opportunity…again…seems the blinders are still on…with the Vice Mayor ……and his crowd…and he is living in a bubble when he declares as he did last evening the north and south are coming together…he feels the love…….except for a few agitators…guess that would be those of us holding the reality pin?…. POP!….

The “Cheerleader”…….no not the one from “Heroes”…the CIC Chair “cheerleader”…….the one that plays with the facts…ala her pal the Vice Mayor…and his wife Moe…(see post below)… touting all the major events were the CIC events…no matter that it was taxpayer money …(see post below)… and well done or not…they…like this evening’s event were CIC events….because the CIC lost any real opportunity for inclusion from others in town…. right out of the election gate last February…….thanks to the usual suspects……the M & M & Fs…no name calling…just their names…

The CIC Chair…Cristie Furth…made it glaringly apparent that the hall was CIC member dominated with her asking for a show of hands…producing just how abysmal the turnout was from the town’s non- members……she went on to do a “commercial break”…again wrong on the facts…about the CIC membership itself…saying 200 families rather than the 200 members…which is also inaccurate at this juncture….due to resignations…and Board terminations of Board members…along with “blacking out” CIC information to certain paid up members… making the “indoctrination” this writer joked about this meeting becoming…when hearing of the CIC meeting format a reality ….her final act of “still doesn’t get it”…was a refusal to read a letter from Commissioner Dodd…although he requested it be read by the CIC Board… even after a CIC member and constituent asked to hear the letter written by her elected official….so she really must have thought this was just a CIC meeting…exercising her authority over a Commissioner’s….WOW!…

Those who missed out…choosing to stay home for the real Emmys…smart move…it was just a re-hash…of all heard before…no new questions…no new answers….no new questioners….a CIC monthly members meeting with a few Jarvis Hall Commission attendees who sit on the other side of the aisle with a few who came to dig in again about the VFD/AMR changeover…and the doggy beach…(read previous doggy beach posts)….

Commissioner Clottey…answered the questions…that should have been answered by the VFD Chiefs…and other topics of concern aptly…showing much growth in her position over the last 6 months…

Vice Mayor McIntee did what he usually does…regaled in his heroics…and played guard and guardian of the VFD…AMR…and the Town Manager….ARGH…..

The Mayor did the best she could in a rather hostile situation…held her ground…and maintained her dignity…

Commissioner Silverstone was way off on some of his answers,…including when his constituents should come to him first…stating for “resolutions and ordinances”…HUH?….presented his usual nice guy persona…but a little off…maybe due to going last?….

The overview is in post below…but would be remiss if I did not put in this “agitators” 2 cents…of the Town Hall meeting it could have been…

An open forum….with all the Commissioners…the VFD Chiefs……the AMR Chief……the Town Manager….the department heads….an evening televised to include all…with questions answered by those who should be answering them….. and answering correctly…as many questions raised last evening….were incorrectly responded to…TOO BAD!….

Perhaps next time…another organization…or another Commissioner could try to advance the dialogue in this town…because another Town Hall meeting like this one…won’t do it…NO WAY…NO HOW!….

Finally …..when the CIC Chair …..in her closing remarks…..thanking her fellow CIC members for their help…in the planning and the execution of this event…thanked the CIC Vice Chair Maureen McIntee for putting flyers into all the condos…she again showed the that the great divide is still alive and well in LBTS….with the non-response of condo attendees from those flyers….leading to the very real fact…2 years from now the dais will be different…and so will the Town Hall meetings!….

more to come….
