Speaking at the Caucus

I have been criticized over the past few years of hiding behind a foolish nick name in the Abay Forums or cowering behind this blog.  I have been called a bully, douche bag, character assassin, hypocrite, and phuck face.  Last night,  I stood in front of a crowd of about 50 town and village democrats. I gave a 5min and 40 second speech about what has gone wrong over the past 2 years and what I planned to do about the condition of our village. Last night I was neither hiding nor cowering.

Jim - Good speach for 5 minutes 40 seconds. I am in no position to comment on your personality conflicts ( Nor do I want to ! ) With all due respect, my hope is that with your foot in the door so to speak you are able to have a medium by which to get some of your plans enacted. I hope with this nomination you are able to promote and focus on what YOU want to do , rather than be concerned with what others might be doing. I think that not only your (pro)ponents as well as opponents will be most interested. Your petty revenge will be getting the town and village where they need to be... Don't you think ?

I just had a clerk at a Fort Drum Dollar store tell me that Ben Timmerman would have been the best choice of chief of police of anybody,(by the way he scored the highest of anybody on the county snd state tests) I agree and I heard about his disertation of his feelings as a candidate for chief and he said no way; no thanks because of the blog stuff:

Good job Jim You scared away the most qualified candidate.
Yeah your the man

Good speech and on point. A very tough task to face the Good Old Boys "Club". I was a summer resident in the 60's and finally a full timer from the 70's on. I've seen the village initially from an outside perspective and things haven't changed much in 5 decades. The "Club" likes to think that the the Village is Mayberry when in fact it's a model for the Dukes of Hazzard. Corruption, high jinks and drama. A lot of talk about what we should do and no action or planning on how to fix things. Hands in the cookie jar and even when getting caught red handed, one person lies and the other swears to it. Jim, you may be able to do a better job at fixing these problems from outside of office. Information is power and maybe if more people can see what's going on behind their backs they'll quit the "Club" and support someone who can plan a brighter future for the Bay. We may have inherited this condition but it doesn't mean that we have to pass it along to our kids.
