While I have tried to stay away from politics here, I have been so upset the last few weeks what with phone calls, emails, and drop-in visits by folks that I feel I have to say something.
We have, IMO, a megalomaniac in office in our Township. Unfortunately, she is the person running the meetings and so folks who agree with her can ramble on and on and those who oppose her are gaveled down. I have decided not to waste my time showing up tonight at the meeting which will probably be another 'train-wreck' (as someone described the last meeting).
After watching her from the sidelines for the last six years, I see her as a trouble-maker who tries her best to stir things up to make herself look like a poor victim and then use it to her personal political advantage. This is pure ugliness and politics at its worse.
To those who are leading yet another recall campaign against Board members who are looking out for the majority of voters and the welfare of the Township, let me say this:
You cannot recall someone for fulfilling their statutory duties. State law empowers the Township Board with the responsibility to hire assessors. Right, the Township Board, NOT the Supervisor, who, by the way, is NOT the CEO nor is she like a 'Mayor'. (Maybe you should all take a civics class.)
Since the current assessor had given a notice of intent to retire, it was their RESPONSIBILITY under the law to seek alternatives. Funny how the assessor gets up after the motion was made and says if they are looking elsewhere she is not going to retire. How crazy is that???
And just when I think things can't get any worse. How will all the bad publicity affect our property values? Not for the better I think. Nice going Michele.
Anyway, here is the post from January back when all this nonsense started:
This is pure politics, not race.
And while I don't normally copy someone else's post, this blogger has copied mine so now we are even. I would just really like to know who they are.
