Seems to me that there is too much bickering and other non-sense such as this issue going on within the town. Nobody's thinking about the entire town as a whole's best interest. The things I notice are:

1. All the big-wigs in town are buddy-buddy with each other, hanging out at the Coffee Pot, etc until one turns on the other over something that shouldn't have happened in the first place. From emails that should NOT have been sent on town time, to all of a sudden wanting Charles Connell to leave. See what happens?!

2. Anytime I've ever called the town office looking for anyone other than the town clerk, nobody seems to be in their office. EVER.

This town doesn't have anything near what it used to. We used to have a better smoother system 15-20 years ago than we do now. Think about it. We used to have more activities going on: Native American Festival, the Lipizanner horse show, better parades, just to name a few.

Now we have: No Native American Festival. No Lipizzaner horses (because the town didn't want to insure it). And we only have half-way decent parades. Even haphazardly last minute thrown together fireworks for Independence Day. We have no pride anymore.

I have to wonder what we're paying some of these people that are in office for. What exactly? We're literally getting NOTHING from it but HIGHER taxes, spending cuts, school cuts, certain critical town cuts like fire and police. Where is all this money going? The people making the decisions are getting paid the same if not more than they always were.

When there's nobody left living in this town is when they're all going to wake up and wonder what happened. The pride is going to have to start at the top and work it's way down in order for anything to ever change.
