Jessie Powell - noted political gadfly in Middleboro is well know for her ability to toss out facts. Trouble is some just do not compute. Her latest foray into the land of make believe is on the Nemasket.net web site. Jessie has been challenged by me to provide proof for various statements she has made. I will concentrate on just one - for now.
The 3 towns surrounding Foxwoods are teaching + 30 different foreign languages. Clark, CT went from 2 ESL teachers to 100.
I have been trying to get confirmation on this tidbit for almost a month but the elusive Jessie continues to avoid the issue....and avoid...and avoid. No source. No nothing.Jessie has quite an established track record within her own blog of calling out folks and pointing out their frailties. I guess this is a turn in the other direction? I don't know exactly how to get an answer to the above quote from Ms. Mis-Information. I've publicly called her a liar. I've offered a reward of $500 which another poster matched. Oh...she'll try to deflect and turn the tables but the reality is that she is trapped. Clark does not exist. The 2 to 100 ESL teachers do not exist. I am still waiting for the +30 languages being TAUGHT in the three towns she mentioned - Ledyard, Preston and N. Stonington The good thing is she is not in public office nor will she ever hold office. Jessie at this point has scorched more earth and people than Sherman on his march to the sea.
Now some anti casino folks may excuse anything but this is a bit too far. Personally I am more anti than pro, but will not tolerate someone who does not have the personal courage to take ownership for a series of inaccuracies. Accountability and responsibility. Those who voted against Jessie were 100% correct. I had voted for Jessie in recall so what can I say? My bad? Some learn by their mistakes and I have. Jessie has not.
I may, in the future, entertain you with some of the various postings that have gone on at Nemasket.net between myself and Jessie.
