Great article and I agree with the opinions about reelecting the same foxes who were watching the hen house when all the chickens disappeared.

That process would go a lot faster if they were not wasting money on a clerk of court to process tickets when we have no police force to write the tickets! The recent article in the Chronicle indicated it would be some time yet before a police force can be reestablished. Town Hall now has 2 full time clerks at a combined salary of nearly $60,000 per year. We are told it is so busy that two are required to do the work yet it was so slow they were able to take the entire week off last week. Does anyone know if this was paid time off? Lots of things that need to be asked at Town Meeting tomorrow night.

Mayor and Council aren't reducing the town debt. Town money is reducing the town debt. All they have to do is give it to who it belongs to. And after the last ordeal, no one could have done anything else without being mauled by the crowd or something, because people are again becoming involved with their Town now. Notice though that they were also refered to as "Clowns". Either way, it was a great story. And still, people hide themselves..........

You have the nerve to call people childish when in the post before this you were making fun of people for their weight. I was at the meeting. I heard a very well spoken teacher ask 4 valid questions and receive 0 real answers. Same old dodge and weave game. It is amazing that every month when the mayor is asked about money he always says, "I was just on the phone with them today" but still no real answers. 2 months of no show from the auditors, I say fire them. I also heard Mr.Pound say he is not going to vote, Mr. Sharpe refuse to discuss the dancing issue and Mr. Delk give the same sad story about having more information on the business association next month. Everything is always going to happen next month with this bunch. The only one who even tries to do anything of value is Ms. Ross. One smart thing the mayor did was assign her to reevaluate the ordinance books as she is the only one capable of doing it. I also heard the Census Organizer ask for a location to hold a rally, why would the mayor not suggest the newly refurbished collard kitchen? Seems like a good way to show it off and help with the census process. Now when it ends up being held in Swansea some people from Gaston will find fault with it being held there.

Why no "proof" of this certified letter your friend was threatening?
The fact that she was not there (at least not in sight) made it very easy to confirm your true identity. You should have thought about the safety in numbers rule before you posted under this name again.
