It’s interesting the water and sewer rates increases will be recommended on April 30, 2019. Four weeks after the special election. Apparently the city doesn’t want residents to be thinking about the increase water& sewer rates.
Show up at the meeting and speak your mind.
And maybe they listen this time .
Lynnfield residents succeeded by showing up!
Yup Dolan has a job there.
And the residents shut down the water/sewer increase by going to the meeting and speaking their minds.
The 'timing' is fascinating (and strictly by chance, I understand that), but still it feels like "The override passed, and btw, here's your water/sewer bill".
They tried the same bull$hit there that they did here, including making the rate increase retroactive. The difference there was that over 100 people showed up and raised hell. They claimed they did it to "promote conservation". Sound familiar? A zebra doesn't change it's stripes when it moves to another town.
It can be done if residents are engaged and stand up for themselves.
The rate increase is coming.For water just think about because you all have the money for it with the taxes,It is what it is.Thanks to all you that vote for new taxes.
BOA Rep for W+S, MB showed how bad she would be as a Mayor. She is as inarticulate as Illegitimate Gail. Reads everything. Cannot talk off the top of her head. Still doesn’t understand parliamentary procedures and language. In the pocket of Department Heads and City Administration. Who put her up to run for Mayor? Voted for her in 2017 because she was a woman and person of color. Mistake!
MB is a blithering shill. She's no credit to the board and that was obvious from the start. Then again she's surrounded by lowest-caliber representatives who are a poor indicator for the voting public here, as their actions collectively demonstrate.
She is totally clueless. It's a perfect example of what you get when you vote for someone because of what sex they are. That may sound crass, but in this case it's true.
I agree. What part of being a woman and a person of color qualifies her to be a City Councilor? I'm sorry, but that's one of the stupidest reasons to vote for someone I've ever heard. And then you wonder why we end up with a bunch of incompetent fools being elected. Do you not realize how precious every single vote is? You have abdicated your responsibility to cast an informed vote. Take a civics class - oh wait. They don't teach civics anymore.
And you have also essentially nullified the vote of someone who did take the time to become informed and cast a ballot for the right reasons.
The water and sewer rates increases will be recommended on April 30, 2019.
This practice of repeating posts on different strings is VERY annoying. What exactly is the purpose, an inflated desire to see one's chosen nickname repeated?
The poster said he/she voted for her because she was a woman and a person of color. If you want to infer there were other reasons, feel free, but that's not what the poster said, and hHer performance thus far has shown her to be totally ineffective and perhaps way over her head.
