BOS Meeting

Marsha was quite disappointing in her presentation of Monday night. I expected some groveling and even an upfront apology - my bad - to avoid the long stream of dissidents that floated to the podium to chastise the Chair. The strategy appeared to be one of defiance rather than compliance and just couple that with the “hanging by her own petard” as presented so skillfully by several inquisitors made for good theater as one could watch the Hammer Of Thor (towns people) descend upon the woe begotten Chair. I did hear a lukewarm apology of sorts but her heart just didn’t seem in it. Just my impression.

Steve McKinnon made what appears to now be a monthly motion and that is that the Chair be removed and therefore muzzled. It didn’t appear to this observer that he had the backing of other board members but certainly had the backing of public support. Steve Spataro called him out when he attempted to delay the motion until a full board was present - not sure if that gives credence to Spartro being a party to the coup or merely putting McKinnon of the spot. Time will tell.

With apologies to Howie Carr it is now quite possible that Middleboro has its own “Hack Family” in Roger and Marsha Brunelle. Roger is apparently playing out the string as IT Director until retirement looms. IMO this translates - to paraphrase The Godfather “Make me an offer I can’t refuse” and I will step down and reorganization of the IT can move forward with a new director - hopefully one that is familiar with 21st century technology.

Adam Bond offered to help guide the Lost Tribe Of Middleboro (BOS) through the rules process. I am sure Marsha just loved having him go forth as one of the lead henchmen in this local drama. Adam actually does have a nice and rather straightforward outline of rules on his blog and since they even make sense to my simple mind they will no doubt be summarily rejected.

The audience at the BOS meeting represented a full house as this was to be some real local blood sport with the jackals - moi included - waiting to pounce on Ms. Brunelle. It really did not come to that and I did not see a police presence ready to remove any rabble that attempted to disrupt the proceedings. I scooted out when the real work of the board was starting with some presentations that just make my eyes glaze over. But I had more important duties at hand and that was to demonstrate my dwindling support for the Boston Nine in their quest to somehow get back into serious contention for the playoffs.

The meeting did represent a nice finish to the summer as the BOS at this time of the year usually is just playing out the schedule until the next dog complaint, earth removal permit, used car petition and billion dollar casino arrives to grab our attention.

Nice summary of last night's events, bogo. I'm also not quite sure what to think of Spataro's stand either. Perhaps as a senior member of the Bored he fancies himself the next Gavel Grand Poohba.

I'm not a person who riles easily, but I felt every bit as angry as those who stood up to challenge Marsha. The Brunelles have a long political history in Middleboro, and I think this has led to a false sense of entitlement. What Marsha has forgotten is that her constituents expect her to have an open ear to them. Whatever happens her credibility is now in the toilet. A selectman is supposed to represent not dictate. Basically she had no defense when challenged by well prepared Grand Inquisitors who read her own words back to her.

One very good result of this event is that it signalled the end of the local casino wars. People on both sides were united at the prospect of losing their right to speak out freely and be a part of the political process. My sincere gratitude goes out to all those who stood up to challenge the loss of a resident's rights. We 3rd rate dips**ts have more chutzpah and savvy than we've been given credit for. "Dam*ed the defiant full speed ahead".

When all is said and done it's great to see the town pulling itself together again to work for a better future.

The Great Casino Controversy would have no impact on this. Anti or pro will staunchly line up against her flagrant use and abuse of a position granted to her by other members of the BoS via us - the great unwashed mass of third rate dips**ts.

Her actions became a great uniting force in that respect as those difference, which in my humble opinion are dulled, took a back seat.

I look forward to seeing if Spataro is serious on this matter and is his intention to support her removal.

Bogo as BOS Chair. Notice him tossing Suo out with a good boot.

Hilarious videos!

LMCAO!!!!

Suo Mynona said...

So did BB apply for the advisory committee for the I.T. study or did he find a way to weasel out so he could just continue to complain about others?

chica said...

Those are very funny vids.

I especially enjoyed the meeting on Monday night since it represented a direct face to face meting with the person primarily responsible for instituting such a change. It certainly was better than Barney Frank at Town Meetings insulting voters who disagreed with him.

I have been watching Allin Frawley over the past three years and he has matured very well with his public speaking. I remember the first time I got before the Board (Wayne, Adam, Marsha, Patrick & Steve) and I was so nervous just like Allin was originally. Although I am friends with Marsha and my daughter goes out with Allin's nephew, I think they will be matched up in the next election if Marsha decides to run. I have never met Allin however but I believe he is maturing and will be a very prominent force in the town of Middleboro for many years.

That was a very beautiful poem about nature especially about the everlasting power Sun. The title “Sun flakes” itself felt apt for the poem. I had a great time reading the poem. Thanks a lot for such a nice post. Please keep sharing

Blackberries are perennial, meaning the same blackberry plant will continue to bear fruit year after year. They produce fruit from late summer to early fall and grow from 4 7 feet tall. They grow best with full sun and in soil with good drainage, in regions with minimum temperatures ranging from 20 to 20 degrees.
