Update…7/29/08…..6 Month Mark…

AND THEY SAID IT WOULDN’T LAST….

It’s 6 months today…since they were elected… the new majority….that was to bring this town together…be fiscally responsible…a unifying group…that would stop the status quo….

They are bruised and bloodied…beyond anything …even the Old Guard and the Former Mayor could have predicted or hoped for!…

And who is responsible for the squandered opportunity…this “failure to launch”….to show those voters…. who took a chance …and gave the CIC endorsed candidates the win….M & Ms & Fs…that’s who…

BCBythesea…now without looking…which I am now proud to say….I am “clean and Sober” of the Topix blog…approaching 2 weeks now…this writer …not a betting person…knows it’s a sure bet…it will be exclaimed by the 3-4 well- known “secret” bloggers…who… they….. will conclude is the culprit….this site..this writer …and not towing the hierarchal party line……

That being a given….dear readers …just take the time…to start at the beginning of this site…Jan/08

also at the 6 month mark…tomorrow….

and you can judge for yourselves….

There has been an “agenda” behind those who ran in good faith…the two new commissioners….for they too believed what this writer and those voters did….they were going to make big changes….for the will of the people…all of the people….not those within the “inner circle”….all things VFD/PAYBACK ….to right the wrongs done to the M & Ms & Fs!…..

“Scorched Earth” has been the response to even those CIC- endorsed Commissioners they brought to the dais….

Take a look at the BTSTimes….the past few editions….leading up to the notorious…sickening latest publication…. out now….

If either one of the new commissioners “dares” to represent his or her own ideas/opinions…or their constituents…the BTSTimes paper…the Editor and his wife …”staff writer”…join their “pals” the Vice Mayor & wife along with the Fs…to “have at them”…”swooping” into Jarvis Hall as soon as the meeting is done…( a sight to see)…..to make it known….they “deviated” from all things M & Ms & Fs…whether it is a vote on the VFD Referendum/equipment acquisitions/ lodging refurbishing…….the Chamber…even the Town Manager and Town Attorney….it’s brutal!….

One has now walked…Commissioner Dodd…..after merely following through with his well-known…longtime request for a “sabbatical”……. only to be treated so badly…..beyond reason…. the fall out could surely lead to the end of the CIC altogether….if a major change is not seen on the board…ASAP!

All eyes are now on the remaining new CIC- endorsed Commissioner Clottey……who received a “pass” in this edition of BTSTimes…the “Stuart Dodd Scorched Earth” edition…littering up LBTS driveways all over town….

Comm. Clottey was not so lucky when she too “bucked” the course the M & Ms & Fs were on ….previously…with questions or votes….and had her share of “dressing down” encounters……..resulting in a member of the CIC Executive Board pointing his finger at her after the CIC July 13th “Tar and Feathering of Stuart Dodd”…telling her she better not do the same!….

Followed up with “warning” her about her associations….her decisions….by this “group”…….

BCbythesea….one thing this writer knows…that surprisingly this “group” still hasn’t “gotten” yet….after all this time ….Commissioner Clottey…Dr. Clottey…is no shrinking violet….quiet …yes….studious in nature….yes….taking it all in….but pushed or shoved…or “bullied”…she is a fighter….and will not be “told” what to do!…..

She takes this job seriously….learning the ropes….reading the materials…doing her “homework”….and actually representing the residents from the north end of town…unlike her incumbent neighbor….( as many in the north have often said)…..and no one…no “group”…is going to divert her priorities to accomplish their own……

What happens next….

The CIC Board needs to meet… decide just what they are….where they go from here….. how they save this organization…. their leadership………a vote of no confidence …perhaps?….

Commissioner Dodd….newly independent….will continue to listen to all constituents…CIC/NON-CIC….and carry on…

Commissioner Clottey….will have to make some hard choices….deciding her future…depending on the course followed by all sides around her…..(she’s been in the “place” before during the campaign)….

The M & Ms & Fs….in this writer’s opinion…expect more of the same…accelerated…in fact…. …..frantic…vindictive….with no one around left to say otherwise….(they would not listen anyway….)

The voters….counting the days….to change the majority once more….sad to say….could be the case…..

This writer….still calling it like I see it…opinions…observations…..freedom of speech….as a independent taxpaying resident of LBTS…..

more to come….
