Not the Last Word on Dal Giuliani

The final post Jim Tricoli wrote was a public rebuke of Dal Giuliani, long time Amherst fixture, Republican party insider, Planning Board member, and now the Chair of the brand spanking new Design Advisory Board. Dal apparently has mysterious attributes not appreciated by any resident or neighborhood group ever to appear before the Planning Board. Neighborhood leaders remain puzzled by Dal’s tenure and survivability and continue to grumble that he maintains a power base in Town Hall.

In large measure, the electioneering undertaken at the grassroots level was done to elect town officials who would appoint members to key boards moderately receptive to neighborhood concerns. With the January 6, 2020, reappointment of Dal Guiliani to the Planning Board, voters got business as usual.

The Design Review Board, with Dal Giuliani as chair, has its first meeting this Thursday, February 27, 2020 @ 6:00pm.

Jim wouldn’t like it.

  1. Money Talks says:

    Gilmour and Giuliani are “as thick as thieves” on everything they say and do on the planning board, and apparently sometimes elsewhere. So since Giuliani chairs the Design Advisory Board, Gilmour will be the major force in what it does.

    The remaining Planning Board members are of little importance to the planning process, since they always “go along to get along”. If want to see this action, just attend or view the next planning board meeting.
