Its about time Auberger took charge. Democrats need to shut up and sit down already

I have just listened to the video from our last Town Board Meeting and I for one am not really surprised with Mr. Auberger’s actions and comments.
I do not attend these meetings any longer because it is my opinion that Mr.Auberger and the Town Board are nothing more than a small group of corrupt Individuals who are running the Town of Greece and who does not care at all what the people of Greece think of them and the past scandals that have cost us dearly.

I find it repulsive to even be in the same room to listen to anything they have to say.

I try to respect many of the people who still attend and try to voice their comments to this
Group but I find it annoying myself now because nothing will change, nothing you say
Is being heard and you are actually being criticized with sarcasm from our Town Leader and the board just sits there as normal and lets it happen. Their actions are appalling but you keep on giving Mr. Auberger and Board Members the satisfaction of looking at you and others like we are the peasants and they are above us at these meetings. If the
Town Board and Mr. Auberger wishes for no one to comment then so be it, just don’t attend these meetings anymore, (boycott them).

Election time is coming up for many and your lack of comments to Mr. Auberger can be heard much louder when it is time to input
our vote.
I don’t care who the other parties have running against them, I don’t care what party they are from and I really don’t care if I never heard of them before. I voted blindly when I voted for the present board members into office
but now I can do something to try too make it right by voting against them!

As for Auberger himself, well my opinion hasn’t changed one bit on this cowardly weasel. Mr.
Auberger will be known in our Town History for the many scandals that went on under his nose and known for his lack of integrity and morale standards and that is enough for me to know that this black cloud will always be over his head and he will (as always) screw up again. He can’t help but screw up, it is in his nature and sooner or later he will be facing the same fate as many have that has known him and that he threw under the bus.

Good Luck Mr. Auberger, I am counting on your character flaws to be your own demise to your political career and ambitions.

Now if many residents decided to stand outside on the sidewalk to show their lack of support for these meetings, then I would be happy to be there but I will not stand or sit in any room to listen to this group of has been's so they can look down at me and others who disapprove.

Those two are a total embarassment if you think they represent everyone in the town. They are living proof why democrats won't be elected with representation like that. Your comment to 11:24 shows that this is the democratic website. I'm a democrat, but I can see why people are crossing over to the republican side. I realize this won't be published.

You can't let dusgust or frustration lead you to abandon the field of play to Auberger and his cronies. That plays into their hand. Folks have to come out to the meetng and make noise so that the board members know they are being watched.

SCATS said...

To 7:34PM ~~ Where did anyone say they represent everyone in town? Who, besides you, thinks/says they are representing the Dems running for election? My comment to 11:24PM shows I believe in a system where everyone's opinion counts, even your WRONG OPINION ;)

7;34 is right these 2 speakers are a total embarrassment. No substance. WHY? Scats are you giving them the time of day?

Watching this video makes me add something to my to do list. I am changing my voter registration today. After a lifetime as a Republican (and former committee member)it is time for me to say goodbye to the GOP. This is not the party I was once proud to be a member of. These are not the American values I fought for during my military service. Don't get excited Nancy Pellosi, I'm not joining the Democrat Party either. But I've had it up to here with the local Republican Party of hacks crooks and bullies. Goodbye boys.

SCATS said...

To 8:02AM ~~ CONGRATULATIONS! Your talent as a mindreader must serve you well. Oh wait! I take that back ;) You don't know why I "give them the time of day" but you declare them to lack substance when they weren't permitted to speak. How is the view sitting up there with Auggie?

Hey, why did you guys cut off the comments of the first speaker? Sorry, but you're guilty of the same stuff you're accusing these guys of.

8:02- Maybe you should take a civics class. Our right to Freedom of Speech has little to do with content< as long as you don't swear>!

SCATS said...

To 11:03AM ~~ Cut-off? Hahaha! The purpose of this BLOG is to show our elected officials, our REPRESENTATIVES,treat the people who pay their salaries, the people they are supposed to care about ... how their idea of "Open Govt" & Freedom of Speech has a definition unique to Greece politics.

I'm sure if you were to contact Mr. Caterino, he could provide you with the schedule for when the meeting will be broadcast on TV in its entirety.

Hardly a democrat web site. More like old grumpy republicans who don't like having corrupt republicans running everything.

To All:
My point is, that if Mr. Auberger and "His" elected Board doesn't want to hear from us at these meetings, then we shouldn't bother by attending them anymore.
We can be heard loud and clear at the voting sites. Screw Auberger and his "Hench Men"!
To 9:55:
I have already changed my Party, I am no longer listed as a Republican.

Auberger has no character flaws, he doesn't even have character!
What do you think his future careers could be?
Maybe, working as a laundry man?

Watched the video and the first thing I thought of was that I was watching a video from another country other than the United States of America, maybe it was in China!

Is there a firing squad stationed outside of the Town Hall?

Brian Caterino here
Please note that I am not a member of the Democratic committee I have no say in the policy of the democratic party.

Anything posted on you tube or facebook is necessarily selective and explicitly meant to be selective. They are opinion pieces not news reporting. Thus they are not intended to provide a complete record of all events This seems almost too obvious to say but I guess I have to say it anyway. I do not see what the first speaker has to do with the issue of shutting down the meeting. If you have a differing evaluation of these events why don't you make a video and post it on you tube or facebook It is, outside of the Greece Town Board chambers, still free country. Speak your own mind

If you want to watch the whole meeting from start to finish watch Tuesday at 7 pm on WGCE channel 6

Mr Ennis who was cut off this time appears every meeting, always berating the supervisor and calling for his resignation. It's insanity to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result. For many months the board has been subjected to this abuse (pronounce that campaigning) and rather than being similarly insane, the supervisor is taking a different action to get on with business. I can't blame him! Well deserved or not, he took a lot of abuse before deciding to quash it. It's a waste of everyone's time.

To 12:40PM & any other interested parties ~~ I'm not registered to any party :)

To 1:04PM ~~ If you want the full Communist party flavor, try attending a meeting. I think you might be shocked at how Auberger et al conduct themselves & the meetings.

To 1:31PM ~~ If you provide an open forum such as this one, and I believe it is their duty to provide it, one must be open to hearing criticism, regardless the messenger or the wording of the message.

Regarding wasted time & insanity ~ where were you with your comments about that after Auberger's long string of scandals? How much time was wasted by him defending himself? How much $$ was wasted to cover his backside?? One after the other after another and yet another scandal ... putting up with them is TRULY INSANE!

Several posters are developing what is now to be the new "party line" about Auberger. You may note over time and across a number of scandals that Auberger always portrays himself as the victim Once again he is doing so. awful citizens are berating Auberger so that he is being victimized by persistent critics worst of all they are democrats hardly people at all, Thus Auberger wants us to forget his misdeeds and absolve him of responsibility or accountability

As free individuals who live in the town we are under no obligation to accept this nonsense or to have any sympathy whatsoever for supervisor auberger the more he is criticized the better, WE are under no obligation to spare him responsibility the bad deeds he has done or to cut him any slack. While other are in jail or have had their property confiscated for their misdeeds Auberger gets away Scot free. What a joke!!!!

I recommend someone give the Supervisor assuming he can read a copy of Jean-Paul Sartre's The Flies "Hell is other people"
You can;t get rid of that pesky plague of guilt and responsibility

I agree with you about Mr. Ennis, he constantly beats down the same old crape every meeting. But as much as I don't like anyone on the Town Board, I think Mr. Ennis should stop with the same old stuff. He makes himself look like a fool.
With that out in the open, I will say the sarcasm from our Town Supervisor was uncalled for. "Literacy", really now!! Is he making fun of Mr. Ennis or was he making fun of the many people who may live in Greece that are not capable of reading.
I know it was shot at Mr. Ennis but you would think that a Town Supervisor should have been more selective with what he needed to get across to Mr. Ennis without the sarcasm and the mocking comment.
You would at least think so but apparently Mr. Auberger, the Town Board and some of these readers don't think the same way I do.

it doesn't matter whether you think Charley is repetitive. He focuses on the integrity of our Supervisor. Given Auberger's record that is always a relevant issue for comment. You can't stop someone from speaking because you don't like the content

Did this issue get in to the Greece post or are our media once again presume to decide who is an important person and whose voice does not count.

SCATS said...

To 2:20PM ~~ Where is it written that making yourself look foolish is against the rules? Our Town Board does it EVERY SINGLE MEETING! They ALWAYS VOTE "YES!" They ALWAYS VOTE WITHOUT DISCUSSION of the subject!

Regarding Auberger's literacy comment, in addition to being morally bankrupt, he's mentally bankrupt too. IT'S TIME FOR AUGGIE TO RESIGN!

SCATS said...

To 2:50PM ~~ I saw no mention of it in this week's paper ... typical.
