Here’s The Scoop….THE DOGGY BEACH

WHERE THE DOGGY BEACH BEGAN….

The Doggy Beach Began…with the ” Broom Boys” campaign of McIntee and Silverstone….

These two candidates told all that from going door to door with their trusty brooms….throughout the town the response was overwhelmingly for a doggy beach once they were elected…..

They tried….once elected…..but due to the OG majority it died….

Only to be resurrected with their encouragement during the campaign of Dodd…Clottey and Wick….

Commissioner Dodd…. a well known dog lover and owner of two dogs himself…decided to make good on the long held belief that it was still…..the “will of the people” …. to at long last fulfill the “Broom Boys” campaign promise….

What transpired at this point was totally unexpected….whomever these LBTS voters were during the “Broom Boys” campaign …. who were “on board” for the doggy beach ….suddenly became mute….

Those who opposed the doggy beach…anywhere in town were the voices heard by the commission….causing the very commissioners McIntee and Silverstone… who originally brought this to the forefront…to do a complete about face and vote to overturn the 90 day trial……about to get underway!…..

To add insult to injury on this one….not only did McIntee back away big time… he did it after he “hijacked” the whole Dodd agenda item ……. by “cutting to the chase” at the prior commission meeting and insisting it be done in the center of town…..previous post….

Commissioner Dodd was as surprised as most of us ……who had heard repeatedly for the past 2+ years that a doggy beach was one item that would be put into place once the new majority was in….to fulfill the promise of the McIntee /Silverstone election….

Although it was voted down 4-1…with Commissioner Dodd dissenting….he is using it to kick-off the new LBTS Town Topic/Channel 78 project to get more input from residents….not to disregard the residents who are now the vocal ones….but to see if the previous pro- doggy beach voters care voice their side…..

more to come……..
