Johnny, good question. What a con job we were all were handed in the run up to election night last year.
I hate to say this, but I am slowly coming to the belief that  my great aunt Violet knew far more about the human condition then I ever gave her credit for when it came to politicians’, large and small, when she replied to my question about why she never votes in an election. Diogenes,my boy, she replied, “I never vote for any of them because I have observed that it only encourages them.”
What has Brian and his associates accomplished or put in play to date. Where’s the beef. Except for increasing the number of sows feeding at the public trough I see no value added results. And, just wait until the town folk see their town tax bills for next year. Remember everyone one of the bullets in Brian’s campaign literature was to, “hold the line on taxes. This is what we got for the obscene salary increases the previous town board gave themselves. These new salary increases give incentive to the current town board to run for public office, not do what is in the best interest of the town.
