The Continuing Saga

Someone asked me at the last Committee of the Whole meeting, “Why didn’t you say anything?”

Why should I?    

It seems like enough has been said and in such a way that great results have come out of all the input.

My concerns were laid out by others.

Abutters concerns were laid out.

The developers have had their say.

The City’s desires were laid out.

The State’s representative gave his two-cents.

Well, tonight at 6:30 in city council chambers, the final decision by the subcommittee will be made.       True, they could dawdle until the deadline but like it or not, they need to decide.

They also need to do the right thing – that is why it is so hard to be a politician.

No matter what they do – someone is not going to be happy, and that’s when it gets personal.     

I say, approve it, pass it on to the city council as a whole and make the tough decision!

In theory, the majority (a super majority that is) rule should then settle it.    

I would like to say something pithy here but I defer.    I’m leaving the whole thing on the committee’s lap tonight!

    What meeting? I got zero notification of such — and it’s not on the city’s meeting schedule online.

  2. It was in the Daily News yesterday on page three.

      Uh huh.

      I don’t know who posted the meeting but it wasn’t posted on the city’s website where meeting notices are, and that’s very weird.

      And, for the record, I read the DN online and never in print unless someone suggests I see a picture or a story they chose not to put online.
