The hopes and dreams of the people will never be seen. The only thing that will be seen are the hope and demands of former mayor and her cohorts. The deck is stacked against anything productive. Glover, Franks, Malone, and Holiday, (now quitting), are all just pawns to do her bidding. How else do you think someone like her could be put on the water board over someone who has been there since the board was formed. Look at the plague on the front of the building. She could not get her sister employed there so she had herself appointed.
The other things that came up at the meeting that should have been addressed were ignored. The $398.00 checks that should be paid to all that have had their insurance cancelled. Two who refused insurance were rewarded by this bonus. Duh! we will pay you not to have insurance but we will cancel the ones who have had it and not pay them the same?
There are so many rules and regulations that have to be followed and you can bet the farm, that if Mayor Lansdell missed one dotted I or crossed T that Mignon and posse would be holding the rope for lynching. Grant money that should be due the town is being lost by this kind of foolishness. Ther is very little hope for the town for another 2 and 1/2 years or so until new election. Be interesting to see who Mignon and Co. pick to replace Holiday! If I worked for Water and Gas dept.; I would be worried about my job unless I were on her favorites list. Glover made the statement that he was never contacted about water board appoinment. Sort of hard to contact when no matter what time or what day you called; He was never available to answer phone. Try it and you will see! Mr. Franks is in ill health and cannot be bothered. Mr Malone works for the railroad and is gone most of the time it seems. How many meetings can a council member miss and still hold his office? So many questions and too few answers.
