BOS Mtg. 08/04/09 Westfield (2 of 2)

Listen for the shots they take toward the "Take Back Wareham" meeting at the end. How their meeting is "open to anyone". Why don't you pay for a venue on your own dime, and then have someone barge in unwanted & uninvited?
Keep spinning.

"Ratchet down the rhetoric a notch", you say? Up yours, I say!

BOS Mtg. 08/04/09 Westfield (1 of 2)

Westfield dicussion. I apologize for posting the Westfield discussions out of chronological order. The posting of one led to the others.

BOS Mtg. 08/04/09 Selectman Jane Donahue's response to "Take Back Wareham" Meeting

Donahue suggests dissenters "ratchet down the rhetoric a notch", and claims to have had a conversation with absent Chairman Sauvageau about a potential "Citizen Participation Only" meeting. Have you heard any more about this meeting?

What just happened???

This clip shows the chairman of the Charter Review Committee (CRC), Alan Slavin (standing ready before those gathered even finished the Pledge of Allegiance) requesting to take "out of order" the petitioned Articles # 45 thru 53 (Bob Brady the petitioner). A few things are puzzling.

--- They were scheduled to start with Article # 41, so why not just wait a few minutes to get to #'s 45-53?

--- The chairman of the CRC (Alan Slavin) claimed that the committee was "presently working on the Articles" therefore he was recommending Further Study, yet their meeting minutes don't show any discussions for any of the Articles prior to town meeting.

--- Listen carefully. No main motion to Further Study the entire grouping of the Articles was ever proposed because the moderator didn't follow his own procedure to allow ONLY the petitioner to make the main motion on any and all petitioned Articles, but instead was complicit in circumventing the process by his actions. The moderator never even allowed Mr. Brady enough time to get to the microphone.

BOS advising citizen to sue Wareham

"Get a lawyer. Sue them. That'll take care of it"

The oath says what???

Steve Holmes asking BOS about crimewatch 07/07/09

Ten Days later Crimewatch President George Coleman (after numerous complaints about him had already been logged), was arrested (charges pending). The Police log states:

12:44 p.m. general disturbance, Union Avenue and Waban Place; male party reports a woman standing in front of his car and won’t move; 70-year-old Onset man arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Aside from the rudeness shown to Mr. Holmes (listen for Brucie's "oh, Jesus" at the end), it seems the town was liable for the actions of crimewatch, and they're represented legally by K&P (our dime).
