East Hampton Town Board members walk out on budget talks

Nobody has to vote a clean slate of Republicans, because then we will have exactly what we have with the Dems,a dysfunctural crowd of angry people, three of who want to push through whatever, with two sulking all the time. I am an independent write-in candidate who routinely builds consensus in all that I do... work, non-profits, family, etc. and I have the temperment for working constructively with angry people. Write-in my name and watch the Independent massage the dsyfunction out of the room." Oct 25, 09 5:43 PM

I refer to the five Town Board members who must find a way to work together. If you have a TEAM of three who have no need to listen to other ideas, and chose to run the Town alone, as they could, this does not bode well for the future. We are simply exchanging one group of dysfunctional, unprofessional folks, for a team of professional bullies, some of whom may be absent from time to time, as they have real careers to forward and may not be satisfied with Town salaries. Unfortunatly, I am rather more leary of ANY slick team than some of you seem to be, and pursist in feeling an independent would keep things much more diversified and balanced. I guess we must see how the voters feel....perhaps you who disagree should come out and put yourselves in the arena....rather than snipe from the sidelines...we certainly need all the help we can get...."
