So much for the TCC holding the line on taxes.
Lawton Ave. 1st September 11, 2012 at 09:23 AM
The waste water facilities plan is a quality of life issue for all of us on Lawton Ave. The pump out boat also impacts many of our taxpayers. We thank the council for their support and they can count on our support for reelection this fall. Remember, if it's good for Lawton Ave., it's good fall all of us.

Tonight the town was put further in debt .Even though the FTR vote was against these items the council obligated the town. The voters lost tonight.

The last several Town Council meetings have convinced me that this council doesn't know how to live within a budget. They continue to add to the Towns' debt with little regard to the bottom line. Transparency and holding the line on taxes was the mission statement of many on this present council, and I have to say that they have failed on both counts. I call 'em like I see 'em!! Back to the drawing board in November- new council needed.
Just Another Taxpayer September 11, 2012 at 01:16 PM
The fact that Mr. O'Dell is questioning the actions of the current Town Council does not bode well for the incumbents in November, especially those who are members of the TCC.

I am sorry, but I am not following - what happened at the meeting?
Mark Wyman September 11, 2012 at 03:49 PM
Joe you keep posting and then deleteing your posts what happened did your TCC handlers slap your hand. Joe Sousa. commented on Meeting Roundup: Plan Your Week Ahead, which you are following. "Tonight the town was put further in debt .Even though the FTR vote was against these items the council obligated the town. The voters lost tonight. Harbor Commission –Pump Out Boat, voted to purchase Jay Lambert yea Joan B. Chabot ney Robert D. Coulter yea Cecil E. Leonard nay David M. Nelson yea Brett N.

Chabot yea Robert yea D. Coulter yea Cecil E. Leonard yea David M. Nelson yea Brett N. Pelletier yea Edward Roderick yea." Joe what happened when you were pushing for the FTR you said the council would never go against te will of the voters?

Thank you Joe. So as you had warned, the FTR is being ignored by this Council. As Mr. O'Dell pointed out below, the budget seems to be optional. Looking forward to watching the meeting.
KSilvia September 11, 2012 at 07:25 PM
Joe posted his comment above and in other sections of the Patch. He is not the issue here, this Council is.
Mark Wyman September 11, 2012 at 07:46 PM
Joe has supported and praised this council from day one just like he did Dan Gordon. He kept telling everyone the council would never go against the will of the voters. Now that he is running himself I guess all loyalites are off. Whats the matter Joe didn't get the TCC endorsement?
KSilvia September 11, 2012 at 07:48 PM
Not true. Anyone that follows these discussions knows that he has criticizes them many times and supported them others. All you have to do is read thru the comments. Again, Joe's point here is spot on.
Joe Sousa. September 11, 2012 at 10:31 PM
Shill, I didn't delete the comment. I'm not sure why it was deleted. I am in this for people like me who want to live here in their old age. I like living here, and hope to be able to stay in the home I built . Controlling tax increases and building a tax base to support the services are my issues. Join the team IC FAT
