By: Dave Moran, Record-Journal staff 05/08/2009 WALLINGFORD - It's far from a full-time job, or a full-time commitment, but the nine members of the Wallingford Town Council perform a crucial role in the mechanics of the town's governmental processes. Councilors, effectively the town's legislative body, serve a two-year term beginning the first week of January, with meetings typically scheduled for 6:30 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. A review of attendance figures for the council's 27 regular meetings and 23 special meetings - meetings that can sometimes be scheduled with little advance notice and may pertain to only a single issue - for this term, which started Jan. 7, 2008, obtained from the Town Council office, reveal that several councilors have amassed almost immaculate attendance records during this time, while others have a history of absences or late arrivals noticeably greater than their colleagues.

I think that it is time for Mr. DiNatale (and some of our other Democrats on the council) to step down. Half the time he isn't there. Eco spends more time reading books and checking sports scores than caring about us taxpayers, and in effect isn't there either. Mike Spiteri (while very good intentioned) if clearly out of his league. Time for some fresh blood..., the current blood is stale (or ineffective).
