First off let me say how much my family appreciates this blog and the opportunity for all of us to submit articles for publication here about issues at our kitchen table.
I thought the last article was great! How often do you get the opportunity to submit your thoughts about real issues going on in our home town? Be able to speak the truth and not worry about the rats in our community bothering us! Thank you, thank you.
We had to hurry up and submit this and so I hope you all will bear with me telling our thoughts about the meeting on Wednesday at 6:30 pm, June 16th.
First off isn't that the day we have a public hearing or such with the Department of Local Government and Finance about our BUDGET for this year just now being approved? I can't wait and see what the Mayor has to say about the budget results, hah! I also wonder if anyone from the public will have the guts to ask him about last year's over spending of the budget and the fallout that has to be associated with the results for this year! Like I said will anyone from the public have the guts?
When England said before his election he was going to do things better this time we had no idea what he meant and gave him the benefit of the doubt(s). But, now I wonder if he didn't mean he was simply going to finish us off with the debt(s) he keeps running up.
Every time you think the Mayor can't possibly come up with any more hare brained ideas, he rains them down. His creativity in three way liquor licenses and now three way catering licenses, where do you learn these games? And only a few get in on the deal (a literal who's who with the Mayor's crowd). Something isn't right.
And, you got everyone knowing the Mayor's house is up for sale and then you see DNA with his wife heading it holding an open house for $30.00 a whack at the Mayor's house. We find this astonishing because it smacks so blatantly of free public services to provide a buyer for the Mayor's house, even if he doesn't pocket the $30.00 a whack. His wife is as head of DNA. Aaahhhaaahh, can you hear me screaming from here?
But, back to the subject of the meeting Wednesday night. I wonder how many hard questions the public will ask of the Mayor; then again I shudder to think of the budget being returned and then wonder if someone from the public will ask about that. I sit in wonder and wonder.
That's what we were talking about tonight at our kitchen table.
