Straight Talk

HONEST talk about local issues!

The Mockery of Democracy …

I have just returned from witnessing one of the most blatant mockeries of the Democratic process I have EVER seen …

The Salisbury Town Meeting about the SSRRA and the WPCA …

Just for the record … the vote WAS NOT UNANIMOUS

I forget the actual result, however I will roll the ‘hard drive’ and report it to you in the morning …

I will have much more to say about this on Sunday … too!

I will also be writing about it in the morning …

I am too tired and ‘sickened‘ by our ‘leaders‘ and their sheep at this moment to make any sense at all …

    As I commented above, I cannot believe the April 3 meeting is what we waited months for. Salisbury needs new leaders and we need them in the upcoming election. The April 3 meeting was sickening, didn’t follow any sort of formal procedure for such meetings, cut off citizen comments — I thought that the moderator (based on his credentials) would have known better than to contribute to the mockery that was made of the town meeting process. Enough of this. Are there more than a few of us who can think for ourselves in this town?

    • Claudia …

      I am only going to address your last point … Frankly … All the rest are valid and TRUE!

      The question is … as you put it …

      “Are there more than a few of us who can think for ourselves in this town?”

      My answer … Too many people in this Town are afraid, intimidated, or have given up …

      Maybe some of us will give them a chance to ‘TAKE THIS TOWN BACK’ come November …

      After all … Don’t they keep challenging us? If you don’t like what we do … then vote us out …

      The real question is … Will people do it should they be presented the opportunity?
