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.

The Serfs Must Challenge the Monarchy

Jan. 5, 2020

I think it is important the communities are listened to and that their voice is heard, particularly with local government, because you are talking very much about communities.

Amherst Town Hall

A gift was given to Rudy Giuliani, oops I meant Dal Giuliani of Amherst, NY. He has been on our very important Planning Board as a holdover for 2 years.

Giuliani’s term on the Planning Board expired in 2017 but for some unknown reason, the Town Board refused the public outcry to remove him or give the public a valid reason.

A government that doesn’t follow the rules in our Town Code is a monarchy, not a Republic. This is a major and intentional move to override our Town Code for the good of our Town Board not for the people of Amherst.

There are several instances where the same person whose term has expired is held over for the good of the town not the people of Amherst. This must stop now. Amherst is either a Republic or a cesspool of a monarchy.

At tomorrow’s Town Board meeting, January 6, 2020, the board will once again put Dal Giuliani officially on the Planning Board as well as name him the Chairman of the new board called the Design Advisory Board.
