Our town manager continually pushes for a train station in Plaistow that an overwhelming majority of citizens voted against. I find it interesting that he is a finalist for another town’s administrator position and that he ran for mayor of Peabody (and lost). All he wants is a feather in his political cap and he intends to leave Plaistow in the dust to face something the majority voted against and that will bring noise and diesel fumes to us. He seems unconcerned. Why? Because this Massachusetts resident wants nothing more than to say he brought the train to our clean and quiet town on his résumé. I hope that other town hires him. He is a Massachusetts resident who thinks like the rest of that state and who would be right at home there. Why our selectmen keep this man when he is obviously looking elsewhere and not doing things in our best interest is beyond me. Think about that next time they run for re-election.
With all the scandals going on with the liberal Democrats, in particular Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, it would be very appropriate for the new liberal Democratic mantra to become “Embrace perversion.”
