Bee Heard

.It was very obvious at the Nov. 27 town board meeting that there were a few people missing. They questioned whoever the highway superintendent is; he has an assistant who receives a $6,000 stipend, so why wasn’t he there to replace the highway superintendent? The woman who runs the senior center was not present. The recreation director was not there. The town engineer was not present. What do we pay these people for? They can’t show up at a town board meeting twice a month?

.In response to a recent comment questioning three men on the back of a garbage truck, well, guess what? Do you realize more garbage workers are hurt than police officers? Why don’t you try it? And why do we go after the workers who do the jobs, like our highway workers, instead of going after the waste in town hall like Sheila Meegan and the building departments? Why do we need a disaster coordinator, other than to waste our money?
