I see every meeting that is televised when the City Council meets and now I can honestly say the “sheriff and his deputies” are totally against the mayor. The “sheriff,” aka president of the City Council, should stay in Seekonk where his job is. I’m sure he would not pull this antic on his boss.

Then you have the councilor in seat No. 1 who wants to run for the most important job — mayor of this great city — yet when I watch the meetings that he attends he has no clue what he is talking about. Now we have our two rookies, seat No. 4 and seat No. 8. I am sure $20,000 is a lot of money to all of us, but to move it from the mayor’s own budget to help us in tourism? And of course the big one, $24,000 that now he is going to get rid of the old police station.cI think you should watch out — we had a councilor watching pennies every meeting and now he has plenty of time with his family.

Last but not least, we have the oldies. All they say is “but you should have done this” at every meeting. Seat No. 6 and No. 7. What the mayor does or wants to do, Frick says no and Frack seconds it. I think it’s time the old city councilors should retire — anyone second it? Seat No. 7 knows too much because half the problems were created while she was there. Now she tells everybody how smart she is!

I said these things to make me feel relieved of the frustration I get watching these meetings and hope they give the mayor a chance to make good.

I didn’t even vote for him and now I wish I did.
