Town Council Meeting - Martins Case

I do not come on this site often or add comments but when the truth is said it is removed. In reference to the Katz article, I found it was not informative and didn't tell the whole story. On the Martins case, the Town Council did the right thing in order to save the Town money in the long run. Dealing with the Union could take months and we have spent a large amount of money to try and beat it. It would have been another expense to the Town. I feel that we got out of the situation cheap.
   Also it it Election year and all of the former TCC members showed up to bash the Council Decision. We all know where this is leading to. It's really bad that people can't work together in this Town and should know all the facts before complaining.

and no just another taxpayer I don't do the katz math thing. I find that a bit insulting. just because I don't agree with the way the council handled this makes me a katz supporter. labeling others is wrong and you should stop that.
Hingle McCringleberry February 19, 2014 at 02:59 PM
No Rug/Peter the only nerve you hit was making an accusation of a conspiracy without offering a single shred of evidence. When you make a broad statement like saying that someone from Tiverton is blocking a state level investigation then you should be prepared to provide some sort of back up. I have no friends in the Tiverton Town Gov but i know that I drive a nice car and can afford it based on the combined salary of myself and my wife as well as good investments we have made. Maybe you should spend less time admiring the nice things that other people have and focus more on yourself.
Just Another Taxpayer February 19, 2014 at 03:04 PM
Fed Up, every member of the TCC believed in "Katz Math." You better be careful Justin and Rob will ban you from the Tiverton Taxpayer Association.
Just Another Taxpayer February 19, 2014 at 03:07 PM
Hey RD and Fed Up, why don't you care about the Town Attorney driving a German import and I am not talking about a Volkswagen. Is he part of the "Great Conspiracy of 2014."
Just Another Taxpayer February 19, 2014 at 03:08 PM
Hey Fed Up, as an avid Faux News watcher the truth must sound threatening to people like you who get their "news" from a sitcom posing as a news outlet.
Rug Doctor February 19, 2014 at 03:13 PM
First of all Hingle, This is not about me. By the way my name is not Peter. Who is Peter? I do not know anyone named Peter from Tiverton. Great for you that your ego is a nice big one. I could car less that your car is nice and that your the master of all of your investments. This thread is about our town a cover up and corrupt public officials not about your or your car wife or anything else. Keep on protecting your friends...
Hingle McCringleberry February 19, 2014 at 03:19 PM
Well then Peter Rug and I know that is your name. Why do you care about the car that anyone drives. I am not protecting anyone, if a crime took place then prosecute someone. If a cover up is going on then you should let us know who is at the head of it. Why can't you type in the name of the person whom, you claim is blocking a state police investigation. You should maybe grow a pair of balls and name some names.
Rug Doctor February 19, 2014 at 03:48 PM
No Renee I did not bring up the car. I brought up 3 brand new cars. Yes there is a difference!!! In Tiverton Employees Who Steal Come 1st!!!
Hingle McCringleberry February 19, 2014 at 03:56 PM
Rug doc do you have proof that the three cars were bought with money illegally obtained. What kind of car should he have driven?
Rug Doctor February 19, 2014 at 03:58 PM
I have no idea. I am just pointing it out that not many families in our town can afford 3 of those cars in the same year with out lottery winnings...
Rug Doctor February 19, 2014 at 04:48 PM
What proof do you have that everything is above board and honest? Honest people do not run from adversity... There are way too many questions that need answers. I am not an investigator but all of this stuff is out there. Blame the messenger for pointing things out!!! The cars may have nothing to do with all of this but they might. How do you know? Tiverton is a corrupt little town.
Jim L February 20, 2014 at 02:23 PM
what does ANY Math other than the math of the fact that we pay taxes to support our town and that money was STOLEN by misyse and no show work policy that some knew about Thats some pretty important math that going on right now, and the taxpayers are footing the bill, because it costs to much to prove that the honest folks of TIVERTON DON"T WANT TAX DOLLARS wasted by people who work for us? Folks on other sites are right, this is making Tiverton a big joke, I'm upset that folks I supported on the council voted this way, and I will be maybe voting for 1 of them to return, the others? i think they turned their back to honestfolks
Just Another Taxpayer February 20, 2014 at 02:30 PM
Let me try to get this straight. First, who or what is "misyse" Second, it is okay for the previous TC to steal over $600,000 from the SC? Where was your outrage then ? Finally, Martin has been doing this for a long time but it was this TC that got stuck dealing with this problem. By the way, it was the previous TC who hired Mr. Goncalo.
Fed Up February 20, 2014 at 02:34 PM
just another taxpayer, that is not true. the previous town council did NOT hire jim gonzalo, he was already there during the previous council. please stop telling mistruths on the patch.
Jim L February 20, 2014 at 02:35 PM
which is the council we have now, amd amgian the misspelled card is used to distect the subject, I DON"T care what council did what I care about NOW n where MY money goes
Just Another Taxpayer February 21, 2014 at 08:16 AM
Fed Up, the previous TC kept him on. If he was incompetent why was he allowed to stay on? The current council inherited the problems associated with an incompetent Town Administrator and the former Foreman. On another note the Gas Co. only paid to fix the part of Lawton which they tore up. The town paid for the rest.
Rug Doctor February 21, 2014 at 09:37 AM
Just Another Liar... The majority of this town council was on the last town council. In regards to Lawton Ave enough. It is a very important street in the center of our town that goes from Fort Barton Park to the beach. If it was not repaved and all torn up you would be on here saying it needs to be fixed. This nonsense that the current town council inherited problems is another wrong talking point. What has this current council done. Nothing at all. Channel 10 has done more for the town than the council has. Why is our building official still employed with him being the cause of millions of dollars in lawsuits? Tiverton Employees who steal come 1st!!!!
Hingle McCringleberry February 21, 2014 at 10:12 AM
Lies LikeARug Doctor. Have you decided to tell the people of Tiverton who the powerful resident is who is blocking a state police and attorney general investigation. you seem to be the only one with that info and it really is something you should share with the rest of us. Unless of course, you have no proof and just made up the entire thing.
Just Another Taxpayer February 21, 2014 at 11:01 AM
RD, since when did Lawton Ave become a major thoroughfare in town? Good thing the State of RI was unaware of this or they may put up a toll. How about Summit Ave is that road also a major artery through town? It also was paved at the same time work was done on Lawton Ave. Prior to Lawton Ave being paved it must been hard on all the cars that frequented TCC HQ. Finally, you are entitled to your opinion just like I am. Don't talk to me about "wrong talking points."
Rug Doctor February 21, 2014 at 04:36 PM
The town hall is located on the corner of Lawton Ave, there is also an elementary school, a ball field, a play ground, a large park and historic Fort, nature trails, a major town beach and harbor on the Main Rd side of this street. How can you say this is not one of the major streets in our town? You have some TCC axe to grind here. Tiverton Employees Who Steal Come 1st.
Lawton Ave. 1st February 21, 2014 at 04:38 PM
Thank you Rug Doctor. Not everyone realizes the importance of our street. We are keeping our fingers crossed that we will become VERY well represented again this fall. We have some wonderful plans.
Renee Cwiek February 21, 2014 at 04:47 PM
Lawson a major street? The only time it is busy is drop off and pick up times at Fort Barton school. If that's the case we should consider North Brayton Road a major road as well. It does have two schools on it. That could use some fixing up.
Rug Doctor February 21, 2014 at 04:56 PM
I agree Renee both streets are major streets. There would be more money to pave and maintain roads if we were not in all these avoidable lawsuits caused by our Building Official. Just remember that "Tiverton Employees Who Steal Come 1st"
Jim L February 21, 2014 at 05:30 PM
yupt's okay to steal taxpayer money in tiverton as long as you hang with Brain M n some T1 folks
Jim L February 21, 2014 at 05:33 PM
I have been off hey for a day or so and all i have read is coverups changing the subject n Renee Chadwick santini and Brain M calling folks liars, You know they don't own any mirrors
Renee Cwiek February 21, 2014 at 05:35 PM
LOL....Don't you have letters to sign that someone else wrote? I'll go back to ignoring you, but feel free to keep attacking me. We know you enjoy it so much.
Just Another Taxpayer February 22, 2014 at 07:48 AM
RD, if you think Lawton is a primary thoroughfare in town that is your opinion, not mine. I would be interested to see how you justify Summit Ave being paved.
Jim L February 22, 2014 at 03:06 PM
why hthe town admin n the council backed him up
Tom February 23, 2014 at 08:40 AM
Jim, what about the TAN suit? Any updates?
Hingle McCringleberry February 23, 2014 at 11:48 AM
Jim L most modern computers have a spell check feature that works very well.Give it a try sometime, so we can makes heads or tails of what you are trying to say.
