I have watched you threaten people, like that young man who had the nerve to speak out against the GCHS theater teacher who was recently indicted by a Grand Jury for touching male students. You threw a hissy fit, threatened that person, and then guess what? Lo and behold, he knew just exactly what he was talking about. But you were having none of it, suggesting he lawyer up and be ready to back up his mouth. Why? It isn't the first time you have unreasonably defended the school district, specifically when it comes to any sort of sexual indiscretion.
You have done it dozens of times. It makes a person think who is this guy? Why is he so unreasonably pissed off when someone takes a stab at our local government? City Hall? The School District? The Park District? We don't have to ask why, it's as clear as the nose on my face, these are your people, these are the groups you associate with.
The reason people remain anonymous when making these comments is because they aren't stupid, they know how this town works, they know that labels will be sewn on the backs of anyone (and their children and family) who is not "in the group". I'm going venture out and make a guess that you are or have been one of the people in a position to make a person's life hell (behind the scenes) if they complain too much, even when justified. I believe you have been an elected official in one capacity or another, maybe even hired by an elected official or group of people. Strange, your pat response to so many people has been "Are you going to throw your hat in the ring?" Which on it's own, will back down a sufficient amount of people who know they would have no chance of winning an election in this town. You know it, we know it.
So, whether it pisses you off or not,(and I really hope it does) I shall continue, at my own desire, to call out anyone whose salary my tax dollars pay for. I encourage others to do the same. I will remain anonymous when I do this because I WILL NOT allow myself to become the subject of ridicule and humiliation as happened during our recent mayoral election.
I think maybe at one time, and maybe even still, one word from you to your friends and acquaintances would be sufficient to claim someone is crazy, insane, trash, ill-educated, and just not the caliber required to hold office. And that shit would spread like wildfire. Since this has worked so well for you in the past, you can consider yourself successful.
One last question though. Were you born on third base? One parent or both, in a position to ensure your station in life? Not everyone is that lucky and apparently you take that as a given.
