To The Cape Cod Today Editor:
As a lifelong Cape resident, I must admit that I have never witnessed more worthless political shenanigans as I have in recent years on the part of a small local oddball group of belligerent internet-based bloggers. As in the upcoming December 17 recall election of Precinct 13 Town Councilor Greg Milne, this group has instigated worthless recall elections, as well as local political bickering that has no merit and offers no meaningful municipal solutions whatsoever.
After attending a meeting in Hyannis on Saturday afternoon November 21 directly related to the existing Hyannis sewer infrastructure issue, I again found the political fingerprints of this same quixotic faction of bloggers blatantly in evidence. A few of the meeting organizers are supporting the Milne recall election, however, many of the telltale signs of lies, false innuendo, half-truths and outright exaggerations were in play. Furthermore, it seemed quite odd that a former Council candidate from Precinct 2 (Centerville) was suddenly one of the "leaders" of the group holding the meeting, which is based in Hyannis and dealing with a sewer problem that is presently only in Hyannis. This individual belonged to the slate of Council candidates sponsored by this same inane blogger contingent mentioned earlier. Like the other former candidates associated with these bloggers, he should probably even now be viewed with little if any legitimate standing.
The December 17 recall election cited previously is not really about any unethical or improper conduct by Mr. Milne. It is about the enormous egos of a group of absurd behaving bloggers who are attempting to yet again force their cockeyed local political views onto the other residents of this Town by any means at their disposal. At this time, I respectfully request that the sagacious voters of Precinct 13 in Hyannis please take a moment to think in retrospect, and then on December 17 appropriately rebuff the recall of Town Councilor Greg Milne.
