Although there were many overide attempts, often for the same projects, there were less actual overides. You claim there were tons, I do not know the conversion rate for overides to tons. You complain about inaction regarding a new town hall but are angry about overides. What is the latin term for a person who is both for and against?
I didn't day overrides, I said proposals. And there have been more than a few passed.

Your assumption (notice it starts with ass) that a new town hall requires an override is preceisely the problem -- and the same flawed "thinking" shared by Dennis. Planning, budgeting and DOING SOMETHING is what makes things happen, not hoping, wishing and waiting.

Are you a school teacher, police officer or clerical worker at town hall?

The only thing funnier than the alleged nationwide searches for state government are the ones for local government. And they always seem to find one of their buddies who has been hanging around for years. So many hacks, former hacks and hacks-in-waiting... But it's good to see this one go, anyway.
Unbelievable

So Dennis will the decision about firing the two police officers (thieves) be decided by the time you leave. Or will we be paying them with tax payer money for another two years??????

How many of you people went to college? Many of you write at a fourth grade level. And you are grossly misinformed. Dennis Piendak has been nothing short of smart, honest , fair, decent and hardworking.

"Fourth-grade" should be hyphenated when it appears before "level," oh great grammarian.

And for accuracy, you should have ended the sentence early. See above.
