First of all, I would like to start out by saying farewell to our Caroga Lake officials who will be leaving us in January.
OH but this is not a sincere farewell, but rather GOOD RIDDANCE! Mr. Ron McClain sure hits the nail on the head when he refers to our Caroga Politicians as the "Good Ol' Boys"
Example: Supervisor Selmser ~ He likes to ignore the towns problems and sweep them under the rug! He has received numerous calls through out the years with people voicing their concerns about town issues. His response and/or actions were about as monotone as his voice. To you Sir GOOD RIDDANCE!
Also Councilman Palcovic ~ When he isn't stuck to a bar stool at Vroomans he is abusing his position as councilman by harassing towns people to make statements of false accusations, to which he himself knows no truth. To you Sir GOOD RIDDANCE!
But "out with the old and in with the new" right??
This brings me to our newly elected Highway Superintendent Mr. Putman ~ Voters of Caroga lake... WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? well the 226 of you anyways!
Did you know Mr. Putman is a former correctional guard? Next time you see him ask about his experiences at the correctional facility he was employed at, and while you are making small talk ask him why he left this position. Surely he will reply that he is retired, but dig a little deeper and you will find that he was FORCED to retire with out pension, or he would have bene fired! HMMMM? Interesting!
While you have Mr. Putman's attention, why not ask him about the house he had built and the new septic system that was installed. Then ask him why he thought he had immunity over the rest of us and didnt get the proper permits! Ask Mr. Selmser how this one possibly fit under his rug and then ask Mr. Palcovic why the fine for this, was lower than his own tab at Vroomans!
You would think being a former correctional guards, would make him a tough man... this couldn't be farther from the truth. Mr. Putman is a coward that likes to harass and try to intimidate woman! Most likely because he isn't man enough to confront another man. Take a trip to our local diner here in Caroga ~ One cook and a waitress... Ask the kind owners about an altercation they had with Mr. Putman. Keep in mind that this IS NOT and isolated incident!
Mr. Putman is Truly a Wolf in Wolves clothing! He did not run for Highway superintendent with the intentions of keeping our roads safe for travel, or for our children to make it to school safely. He ran for his own personal gain and to fulfill personal vendettas!
Ran for Personal Gain? Well I bet you 10 to 1 that come January, Mr. Putman will have devised a plan for the rehire of his son in law Mr. Comeau, though he and Mr. Putman we laid off due to lack of funds. Even though there is a code of ethics, I am sure some sort of loop hole will be found and he will be hire back on!
Ran for Fulfilling Personal Vendettas? I am refering to statement made by Mr. Putman, that when he is Highway Superintendent the "Dinosaurs" Will lose their jobs. By dinosaurs he is reffering to the workers of the highway dept. that have earn seniority. Why is this Mr. Putman? Well I will answer that for you... Because you and your little "deputy" are robbing us taxpayers and like to screw around on "normal" hours only to get the jobs done on "Overtime" and these "dinosaurs" have REAL work ethic and a conscience. Simply put, they are thorn in you and your "deputies" side!
With that said, Please people get up to those board meetings they are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at the Caroga town building at 7:00 PM. ASK questions and demand the answers! Your Taxes are paying for this, and you have the right to the truth and you shouldnt be affraid to question authority!

I believe angry young and poor is correct about Steve, he is a total idiot. His own family has nothing nice to say about him. I think Mr Herms should be told of his building a house without proper permits, as he was made to take his down on Canada Lake. Putman is and always will be a liar. Town of Caroga I hope you have alot of money saved up because with the way Putman works there will be lawsuits. I am sure of that..

Im not gunna sit on here with a fake name. Im TJ Scharpou. Joe Insognas grandson. Elections were pretty close considering Grandpa Joe was a write in. "Not running my mouth" or talking trash but grandpa always said if i lose i lose its nothing to lose sleep over. He has done his good work for the town and most of the townspeople enjoy him. We will see come this winter by how are roads are, if guys are in plow trucks at 1:30 and 2 am. And back at 5 to make sure citizens of Caroga can get to work. Who knows maybe the new superintendent will step up to the plate like grandpa has.
Just wondering

Thank God Selmser is gone. He hasn't done anything for the town of Caroga. But I am truly worried about that idiot Putman for highway superintendent he can't get along with anybody . The only thing he likes to do is harass women and tell a bunch of lies!!!! I hope someone puts him in his place!!
