  1. At tonight’s final city council meeting as the self proclaimed “Dream Team” said goodbye and patted themselves on the back for over a half hour, I couldn’t help but remember how much self-praise really stinks. (And that’s coming from an 8’ turd)

    You have not left Rye in a better place then it was when you found it. You still have 34 homes on Hen Island polluting Milton Harbor and breeding mosquitoes by the millions. Your continued failure to protect the health and safety of our residents is a prime example of your administration’s many deficiencies. Don’t let the door hit you in the as* on the way out.
