  1. From the article posted –
    “Mayor Steve Otis calls [Mr Floatie and Jack-A] “counterproductive,” but said he wants to maintain civil interactions.”

    Oh please. Otis should have avoided turning our local government into a circus act. People are now watching the city council meetings for amusement instead of enlightenment. Meanwhile, Indian Village is still facing floods and Central Ave bridge is still out.

  2. Scooter,

    Indian Village has always flooded. That’s why they need to get flood insurance to secure a mortgage. No dredging is going to solve it and I don’t think my tax money should be spent on it.

  3. Wa$ $hew’$ hearing held at City Hall today?

    If it wa$, that might explain why Oti$ i$ having yet another $ecret meeing tonight to di$cu$$ Shew’$ taxpayer financed $everance package.

    Scooter I agree with you about Rye government becoming a circus. That’s what happens when you have clowns like Otis, Shew, Pickup, Connors, Plunkett and Nodarse running Rye.

    It’s time to get rid of all these clowns.

  4. Ju$t had a tip that the closed door $e$$ion will adder$$ the O. Paul $hew $everance.

    I wonder what could motivate $hew to $tay $ilent and let hi$ career go down the tube$??

    Gue$$ the taxe$ will not be going down ever under $miling $teve Oti$….

  5. What could Oti$ po$$ibly give to $hew a$ an incentive to keep hi$ mouth $hut about the coverup$ and to ju$t go back home to Ma$$achu$ett$?

    Maybe Culro$$ can pull one more job out of hi$ hat for Shew $o Shew can run $ome other town into the ground.
