And I'm glad you agree about any coward harassing an elderly widow, with a heart of gold. But the harassment is not isolated to the events I described. The current batch out there are now joined by the potential batch, and each of them is ready to slit whoever's throat they need to get what they want. Who better to go after than the person elected to record it all.
You are either getting your attitude towards her from liars or a useless p.o.s. who is greed driven and power hungry, who loves to build paper tigers only to tear them down in their favor. Or it's personal, something that happened in the last few decades.
Loose lips sink ships, and let me tell you personally, there are a lot of loose lips out their yacking it up as we speak, exposing the grand plan of several (already in office at the township and other venues as well or who are just pushing their personal agenda)who plan on supplementing either their existing retirement or their current salary by getting elected into the township. They are all scrambling for a piece of the pie
Right now, it is a continuous whispered buzz of he's doing this, we plan on doing that, if we can help so and so they will help us if elected...if the walls of Uncle Linny's and the old Venice Social Club could talk....what a tale they would tell.
And your committed dismantling of Helen Hawkins and what she's done for our community makes it very clear to me that this is way personal for you and quite lucrative for some of your friends. Just make sure you and your friends can trust who they think they can. There are two players in this mix that aren't even running for office who are convinced they are pulling all the strings, putting their plan into motion, setting up their friends and themselves for rewards down the road. One in particular will lie directly to people's faces, casting doubt about others, making up lies about people, playing both sides of the fence while straddling it and he isn't even running or trying to run.
If I had to do what these people are actually doing to get one of these jobs I could not begin to live with myself.
Think twice about who is whispering in your ear because they are only being told what they want Liars, thieves, fools and cheats. And each will owe so many favors once they are in office, there is no way they can stay honest.
