The penalty seems fair but who knows and how much did his uncle abet this excursion into crime? Paid hannsomely for unbidded sand delivery, you would naturally think his first question would have been, "Whom did I underbid anway?" The answer of course was nobody! Shame on you PA and your family. Just hope you don't breed like fruit flies.

It happened because most of the elected officials in this town look down on the voters and have a basic arrogance towards us all. Pat Morrison is merely a symptom and emblem of this.

First of all, Pat is an arrogant sob and thinks his shit is ice cream. For the most part you tax payers ,including myself are being screwed. My theory is if you fu&k me, I'd at least like to feel it.Our town officials are totally vacuous.

You A------- need to back off. He made his mistake, hes paid for his crime. Do you think he was the only town official that has done wrong ? The others have'nt been caught up with yet.

The sad thing is they never will be caught. Pat is paying for his crime now let it go.

Before you make accusations...you need to get your facts straight. For your information Pat did get 3 bids for the sand and he went with the lowest bidder! Yeah, it was his uncle, but he was still able to save the taxpayers over $1200 by going with the cheapest bid. Would you rather that he went with the higher bid just because it was a non-relative?!?

Pat Morrison is a good man and a great father. I would put him up against 95% of the dead beats fathers in this community. He made a bad mistake, but he is a good person. His problem was that he was just to nice to be a politician. Pat know that alot people out here still think you are a great guy who made a mistake. And let he who is without sin please cast the first comment. I have know him for many years and they don't come any nicer. His uncle Pat is also a good man who would take the shirt off his back to help anyone.

If the purchases P.M. made WERE APPROVED BY SOMEONE SOMEWHERE FROM THE TOWN BOARD, then WHY aren't these people being held accountable, too???

boo hoo, if you do the crime, you have to do the time. I don't feel sorry for him at all. I'd like to know if you are all on here complaining about the town officials, how in hell do they keep getting elected. We need to give the town an enema.

PM is just emblematic of the corruption in this town. They're all on the take in one way or another. Get used to it, hasn't changed in generations and its not about to start changing now.

The person that accepted the bribe broke the law. Making mistakes or being generally incompetent are not crimes and therefore not subject to criminal prosecution, sorry, now piss in your own Cheerios and off the PC and back to work!!!
