Gee Gladys, isn't this what Casino facts has fought hard for? a town meeting so we can all vote? Nothing is free.

Remember when the Board of Selectmen said a $9,000.00 election wasn't feasible since the town didn't have the funds. Hmmm...wonder how the $123,000 is going to magically appear?? Town employees better check their direct deposit in the coming weeks! I sense a dwindling in several departments' budgets. Ouch!

Yes, Gladys was at that meeting, less than three months ago, where the selectmen made it sound like $9,000 might have been a million. This is why her mouth dropped on the floor when Mr. Brunelle recently quoted the figure of $123,000 for the big town election that could easily wait until April of 2008 if it weren't for the friendly relationship it has with the Tribe.

So, Smarten up.

$123,000 for a town election??......I thought it was for a Town Meeting that Casinofacts wanted to have a ' voice' to decide if this town wanted a Casino or not? Gladys, I think you mis spoke..Town Meeting, not election!

Why open the polls,that would make too much sense.Why make volunteers hang out all day,12 hours for something so minimal.plus...Hal says he believes "it's" coming...I think he means,defeat.

Let's not forget that if the selectmen had done things the way they should have in the first place we wouldn't have to be spending anything. Why didn't they have a referendum question on a ballot before approaching the tribe? Why didn't they have an article at the last town meeting to get the town's permission to enter into negotiations with the casino investors? Or why don't they just wait until the next town meeting or election to do so? The selectmen are the people who are rushing into this and racking up these bills by their poor planning.

Let's take a step back for a minute..It wasn't the Selectmen that invited the Indians to ' look at the land we're gonna auction off' ....It was Jack Healey.

What's even scarier is that if this Casino deal goes through............all the monies promised; it's all going back into the hands of the incompetent. Damn they got us into to money trouble and screwed this town when there WAS NO money. I shutter to think of what they will do with 11 mil a year. Pray for the recall!!!
