Last night, the smell was much worse in City Hall than passing by the sewer plant on Moser Road in the summer. The stench of political agendas, the overt pandering to those agendas, the lack of leadership (not applying to Rhoads and Weand) and the undeniable rewarding of poor behavior left me reaching for a barf bag. I might start bringing my own if I continue to sit through these council meetings. I think we need a “honey wagon” STAT at City Hall as the municipal diaper is FULL!
A total travesty is what I would call that meeting. Only two Councilors had the chutzpah to call Missy Mayor on the carpet. The other four (Allen absent) were falling all over themselves trying to kiss her derriere. The mayor’s position is “ceremonial”. If the mayor is so gung-ho to monopolize every council meeting, let her run for COUNCIL! And yes Steve, you are correct, it is your fault for letting her talk too much. She talks more than most of the Councilors we elected into those positions. The woman has an opinion about everything!
WEAK MAYOR – WEAK MAYOR – WEAK MAYOR!!!! Capiche??
We need a total change of leadership – Weand/Rhoads or Rhoads/Weand need to be President and Vice-President of council. Stick a fork in the rest of y’all; you’re done!
While we’re at it…since we pay Jason a tidy sum, why don’t we stop tying his hands behind his back and let him do his job. He’s an educated, municipal expert who we are paying to manage Pottstown. We hire a professional manager for a reason. Council people are not experts in municipal government. Most have full-time day jobs. This is Jason’s full-time job which he is highly skilled at.
That is as polite I can be. I have waited 28 years for Pottstown to “come back”! I am sick and tired of waiting. I am sick and tired of the “good old boy” network in this town that continues to hold it hostage. At this juncture, I highly doubt this town will ever change.
So color me still crabby today!
