Does McFee really think the corrupt good old boy democrats are going to allow an ethics commission that they have no control over? That would jeopardize all of them as they violate ethics almost daily. Nice try Dana but your fighting a loosing battle.

I’ve never seen any comments during the last 15 years that I have been living in this town, calling the Mayor and Democratic controlled Council corrupt. In just only 11 months while they have been in Office, there have been many comments calling them corrupt and some even calling for the Mayor and some Councilors to resign. For people to be that upset with them and to say they are corrupt and ask them to resign, should prove, that the decisions they are making are so blatantly violating the Charter, that people are taking notice. It’s sad that the Charter doesn’t have a section allowing the people to recall a Mayor or Councilor. What I would recommend is, someone start a Petition calling for the Mayor and a few Councilors to voluntarily resign. Maybe if 3000 signatures were presented, they would understand that they have let the people down and they should resign. It should not be a political party starting one; it should be people that don’t usually get involved in politics. Just a thought.

Sad but true montville democrats have hit an all time low, but what worries me the most is that the citizens sit back and take it. Time to get up in arms and make some noise. Petitions or protest but do something.
