Come See Arrogance In Action Tonight

  
Town of Greece Board Meeting @6PM
Budget Hearing @ 6:30PM

See John Auberger "do more with less."

According to today's D&C, Ms. Firkins claims the town decided to do away with 5 part-time and 1 fulltime positions, including 2 counselors. The reasons given were due to decreased state funding for the jobs and redundant services offered by the Hilton, Greece and Spencerport school districts. No other services would be cut under the spending plan.

SCATS ~~ Redundant services? WHO did the Town of Greece consult with (GCSD & the other two districts??) BEFORE making this cut? I'll bet they didn't discuss it at all. And if this is redundant, then why not close the Town's library operations down, too? Afterall, each of the 20 schools has it's own library!

Actually since the town is cutting services they will be doing less with more.

Why don't they start by eliminating Firkins and Mc Cann who are basically campaign officials paid by taxpayers, then let one of the rubber stamps serve as deputy supervisor.

Maybe it is more like the Greece Tool Board

Or better yet. Have Caterino park outside of McCanns house with his camera and film him for a day. Let's see, after babysitting all day, I suppose there is enough time left over to go to a leg meeting once a month.

We pay him to sit home and babysit all day. How NICE.

This counds rather gruesome Did any of our democrats speak at the hearing.

Was Dan Maloney in attendance as promised?

To 10:15AM ~~ Due to a conflicting obligation, I wasn't able to attend this meeting. If anyone else attended, a recap of the meeting AND the hearing would be MOST appreciated :)

Hi Scats:

I was there like many other boy scouts but there were few democrats. I guess there is no merit badge for the democrats who attend meetings, I know I wouldn't have been there if my troop leader hadn't forced me.

There was I think a blond haired guy named Shawn there but no one spoke during the budget hearing. No Dan or Joe.

Rick Pelligrino who Auberger said was his finance guy made a very halting presentation which sounded more like it was written by the minister of propaganda, than something from his own pen,

He often stumbled reading the florid effusive text provided him extolling the virtue of our fearless leaders rigid and constant oversight and manly fiscal "discipline" (ouch). There is really no way to capture it's quality here but if you can imagine combining an Ann Rice novel and the poltiburo you might get close. In any case it was short on details and high in rhetoric. I learned we have over 14 million in the bank but we have to fire everybody who has a youthful service. Don't ask me why though. It seemed like they said they weren't responsible for youth since the state would not pay for servicing youth. This was odd since fearless leader seemed very happy to see us and take a picture with us.

Some wild eyed radical sounding person seemed upset with Auberger's
worship of the devil. I really didn't get this but there is some other guy named Dan who must be really bad because he is godless and is red colored. He said Auberger should apologize for making dan red. Then he talked about some Don Riley guy who gave a speech which was not nice to leader This don guy seemed to agree with godless dan and some other old Joe. Fearless leader seemed unhappy and made many faces.

In the rest of the meeting a lot of people on the big desk in front practiced raising their hand very fast.

I don't think I like politics,

To 8:13PM ~~ Welcome to the world of adult "entertainment!" I appreciate your summary. I can't wait to see the made-for-TV version when it airs next week. I am putting it on my calendar.

Good summary. Just one point. Board members don't raise their hands when they vote. They vote verbally. Who's your troop leader that forced you to go? I know a couple of them and would be happy to suggest they not force scouts to attend, even if it is for your merit badge. I'm very impressed with your extensive terminology abilities. Most kids your age don't know what a politburo is or are familiar with Ann Rice novels. The Shawn you are referring to is most likely Shawn Lavin who ran for town board but lost. Good for you that you know the candidates that run for government office!

Maybe there is still some hope for our youth of today!

To 6:51PM ~~ Methinks you missed the tongue-in-cheek tone of the summary ... ;)

cheeky indeed

so someone was just pretending to be one of the scouts there? It was all a lie?

To 2:01PM ~~ Did you lose your sense of humor while following Uncle Auggie's every command? It appears so!
