Town Administrator Round Two.

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

I for one am glad the second Town Meeting of the year is over and town business can continue. Personally for me the second defeat in as many meeting of the incomplete, flawed town administrator article is behind us. I just cannot for the life of me understand why the current sitting board can’t get it through their heads that you can “put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig”. I’ve always wanted to use that line! I should have at Town Meeting but it could never top Bill Connolly’s YoYo comment, that was a classic!

Seriously though, the board should get their act together and come up with a “real” article similar to the one I put forth when I was still on the board. Compose it so that the powers and duties are properly delineated and fully vetted before the public. I mean “real” public hearings not an informational meeting like the Selectman had where only they could comment and then resubmit it, I would actually support it. (provided of course it had the accountability of the Selectmen’s approval of hires and appointments)

I still have a copy of the document if any one on the Board would like a copy as a starting point. It might save you a lot of editing. I’ll be waiting to hear back, but won’t be holding my breath. Email me at if you’re so inclined.

On another note I’m really happy that the voters saw fit to fund the article pertaining to CEMA’s request for a radio repeater.
