In desperation and reflecting the tactics of the past Democratic Clique their successors from the farm system have resorted to spreading the lie that Republicans are going to privatize town services. It leaves Republicans with little more than to fall back on the facts.
With republican Paul Fetters blessing and working in conjunction with Brad Cummings dramatic cost reductions have been achieved while increasing training and services. Take the trash pickup service. Several routes have been taken away from a private company and are now performed by the Street Department resulting in savings of thousands.
With Republican Tim Hauber working with Chief Mark Palmer our police force has become the standard of excellence not just in the county but it the area. They have increased the number officers without increasing the cost via grants. In todays world more than ever they have received critical and much needed training, training they've never received before.
Obviously only a fools with mess with resounding success - - which reminds me of something.
Right at 20 some years ago 6 Democrats including Charlie King voted to privatize this department and operation. Interesting isn't it. Perhaps they need to look in the mirror. Wisely the council brought it back under the towns control. Moreover, though not directly r3espsonbile as an individual, Paul Fetter urged a cost/benefit review of this operation in a work session for the council.
Back to Basics
Now can we focus on what's important starting with district/fair voting and a town manage of substance?
