The meetings are just rubber stamping what Dick and Bob have decided before the meeting.<quoted text>
I agree 100%. I'm tired of finding out about all the backdoor politics that goes on in these selectman meetings. They were elected to represent the will of the taxpayers...it's about time they're held to that standard.

Maybe you should realize there are no guarantees in life. People with 20+ years at their jobs (in the private sector, not the tax-engorged public sector) are getting laid off all over Connecticut, you crybaby! I think all public servants should share the pain with layoffs and paycuts, just like their private sector counterparts! Government workers have had it too good for too long and need a hard reality check in this tough time.

I hope the avid reader remembers his words when his house catches on fire, he crashes his car or gets mugged and he is told to take a number like at the deli at Stop n Shop. Maybe only then will he appreciate what public servants accomplish on a daily basis!

Get real you pro-bureaucracy dunderhead! It's about getting the services you describe at a better value. Can your liberal though-process handle that phrase? Let me repeat B-E-T-T-E-R V-A-L-U-E. There's no reason on this earth that public sector employees need to expect lifetime job security and a retirement spanning pension that soaks the achievers and earners of the private sector. Yeah, we need snowplows and cops, but we don't need them at a point where they become to big a drain on private sector finances. People who claim there are never enough cops, teachers and ditch diggers have never completed a ECON 101 course. Read some Ayn rand and some Milton Friedman and then talk about the costs of the public sector on those of us with no job security or guaranteed pensions!
