The last gasp of the unholy trinity?
Before 10 am, Gilbert was already out of control. Thanks to Councilman Lukkason, his neighbor Russell Sias had already received a warning of potential problems today. (Way to step up Jerry! Congratulations, by the way.) Gilbert was video taped in the parking lot of the post office trying to take out his vengeance against Mike Roth, yet again! Mayor elect Ed Foster arrived on scene quickly to dissipate the tension and send Jeff on his way, with Sias and Jones as potential witnesses for Roth's plausible lawsuit. The rumor this morning is that Jeff and Sondra's ballots cast in Tuesday's election may be under investigation...
When Foster picked up his packet this morning for Tuesday night's Council meeting, he discovered that Huntley and Taft had orchestrated an emergency meeting for 2:30 today. It may have been "posted"somewhere, but it was definitely not posted on the Town website.Among the items hastily placed onto this last minute pre Foster agenda is the final approval of town engineer, and the CDBG grant that Taft's charity is supposed to administrate.
WELL, IT'S MONDAY MORNING AND THE AGENDA FOR TOMORROW NIGHT'S REGULAR MEETING OF THE COMMON COUNCIL HAS YET TO BE POSTED! IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE HUNTLEY/TAFT/GILBERT ALLIANCE WOULD CONTEMPLATE SOME DESPERATE STUNT? HOW LONG CAN THE COUNCIL AVOID THE TRUTH? WILL AN AGENDA BE POSTED BY DAYS END?
EVEN IF ALL OF THEIR PET PROJECTS WERE RUSHED THROUGH THE SPECIAL MEETING, THE CONSENT AGENDA CAN ONLY BE APPROVED AT A REGULAR MEETING. AN AGENDA IS BEING DRAFTED THAT INCLUDES THE SWEARING IN OF FOSTER. MORE UPDATES TO FOLLOW...
THIS JUST IN AT 4PM:
TOWN MISMANAGER ALEX TAFT HAS PLACED ITEMS ON TUESDAY NIGHT'S AGENDA DESIGNED AT CHANGING THE MAYOR'S POWERS UNDER THE TOWN CODE! ALSO ON THE AGENDA COURTESY OF TAFT IS A POSSIBLE REVISION TO THE TOWN CODE AFFECTING KAREN NORRIS' POSITION AS TOWN CLERK. SEE YOU AT 7PM TOMORROW!
SO MUCH FOR "WORKING TOGETHER", IT PROMISES TO BE A KNOCK DOWN DRAG OUT THAT MAY NOT END WITH THE SWEARING IN FOLKS. GOOD THING FOSTER HAS LAWYERED UP ALREADY! CAN YOU SAY REFERENDUMS?
