A self righteous pompous ass he is. Reminds me a lot of Mr Weiner of New York fame.

Or the other favorites, the 10-1 or 9-2 vote. The one where anywhere from 1 to as many as 2 city councilors pretend they are outraged that the council is not acting in the best interest of the city and it's citizens. And their conscience will not allow to go along with that. Because it's just wrong. And they were voted by the citizens to be the voice of the citizens. And they take that very seriously.

Krol is part of the gang of 5. They are hoping to become the gang of 6 next term but had some setbacks. One is up on drug charges and 3 others have close races to win. I don't know what their agenda is, but I do know it is not in the voters' best interests. Gang of 5 includes Krol, Capitanio, Clairmont, Yon and Lothrup.

Well Capitanio is probably not going to jail even if he is convicted on his drug related charges. And whether it's Nichols or Krol, does it really matter because they were both city councilors when an alleged fraud of allegedly nearly a half a million $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ either did or didn't take place in the water department, and was or wasn't covered up. So we already knows who both of them are. And if history has taught us anything it's that a little bit of power goes straight to the big bloated egotistical heads of everyone who someone manages to secure a political position in Pittsfield politics.

Oh and Ms. River didn't even bother to wait until after she's somehow elected to let us know that she's an advocate for the arts that are going to be the savior of Pittsfield.
