"Reboot their asses right our (sic) of the town hall."
Could that be because your were an unsuccessful council candidate in the last election?

What are the chances?
It's not worth the time to check precisely but there may have been fifteen unsuccessfulcandidates from thousands of potential voters.
After a year and a half, the likelihood is slim to nil the criticism came from a poor loser.
On the other hand, chances are the comment came an elected Councillor.
I know a few who obsess about nothing except the previous election and the next and in between nothing at all about WHY they were elected.
What is the function of a Councillor?
Is it service to the community or service to self?
We hear how important it is for Council to fight to uphold the Town's Official Plan and questionable subdivision agreements.
Resources were expended for legal costs and inappropriately taken from a reserve fund,
to acquire 6 acres of land which were never identified as needed for municipal purposes.
Mavrinac homeowners would have to acknowledge the issue was contrived for the election.
Votes were won and lost on a battle to stop the land from being developed.Maybd as few as forty-nine.
The acquisition has been totally repudiated by expert advice.
Still we have seven Councillors rejecting advice bought and paid for, and voting to create a park.
Ye Gods! How low can you go in accountability?
Another asset is moved from black to the red side of the ledger.
How is the municipal interest served ? How insulting to the taxpayers?
Millions spent on professional administration,theoretically to ensure efficient management of the corporation, only to watch, on camera, blatantly undermined by the those elected to ensure the corporation is efficiently managed.
How is it anything but shameless pandering and shoring up votes like sandbags?
Why should this or any Council be spared the outrage of taxpayers among us who are not fooled by facile phrases strung together like daisy chains to obscure abject self-abasement and political degeneration?
We are all degraded by unintelligent public performance ?
I have consciously made an effort to detach the blog from town business since I failed to win a seat on the last council. Visits declined and that was to be expected.
In two days since I have touched on the HIghlands development proposal , numbers of visits doubled.
It seems people want to hear about town business even if they do not agree with my take.
In turn,I refuse to believe the neighbourly majority of the Highlands and Mavrinac properties fail to understand the determined effort to keep land parcels out of development are anything but a detriment to the efficient management of our town's business.
Having the resources to retain lawyers to oppose development does not mean it's in your interest to
Think ABAHT IT.
