August 4, 2013

Something just does not seem right. After years of collecting big bucks from Forestville, former village attorney Michael Bolender has become a generous, kind-hearted sort....

So, using Dcronig logic, she voted for both terms of GWB and both ongoing wars, the Patriot act, the Benghazi Massacre, the NSA spying on innocent civilians, Obama's racist prejudice against two white cops in the Harvard University area, the trainwreck Obamacare, super-extended lengths of high percentages of unemployment, bailing out cities that have doomed themselves through mismanagement, sexual harassment and plain ol' negligence, oh, and sunk Billions into auto manufacturers who didn't pay their debts off while running taxpayers Billions of dollars more into debt, among many more things, including hiring ex-Goldman Sachs staff for his own advisement. Makes TOTAL sense.

Trustee Lineman said: "I don't trust him (Bolender)." Those were HIS words, not the Observer's.

I think it's safe to say that if the Observer took an official survey of Forestville residents only, there are many more who agree with Mr Lineman.

"(I)t sure does seem dishonest and unfair to residents who were putting their faith in a board and its attorney."...really? To you guys?? When did the Forestville residents delegate their ability to speak for themselves to you guys?

Apparently, the Forestville residents can speak for themselves, as they voted for this board and hence all of its decisions.

Seriously, what a bunch of clueless, nothing-better-to-do-than-gossip church ladies yu guys are.

Forestville isn't unique. Concerned residents from every community often question how and/or why elected reps' waste taxpayer money. Arrogance AND ignorance is often the reason, but the short answer is usually something like: "we were elected to do a job."

With regard to Mike Bolender duping Forestville residents out of big $$$ thru excessive fees, the bottom line is the board approved it, so there's no one to blame but those who were involved. Patronage decisions is a common problem, and so are kickbacks. Most reps, however, are smart enough and/or careful not to leave proof that may incriminate themselves.

In light of the allegation that Bolender received MORE than $180K ABOVE what the services he provided are "normally" worth, the board should've immediately cut all ties with him.
