The Many Hats of Margo…Will the REAL Margo Please Stand Up?
In the past Margo has been pretty predictable: She just hates any person serving the town, whether that is a water board member, town staff, town council, or an appointed planning commissioner (all are appointed). It’s a game of marbles where the voting citizens are the Ringmasters and they aren’t interested in having Margo join the game. Instead of just taking her marbles home and moving on, she lost a few along the way and now just spews hate and discontent from her keyboard.
So I understand why she is bitter, but lately I just can’t figure her out. How many times has she written about “Lazy Lombardo’ and how terrible he is? She has trashed his name since he has been serving on the council. Now she says he has been mentored by The Great Bob Leone, yet she still is supporting Leone? Is The Great Leone just a crappy mentor? Or, an effective one…. since The Great Leone was renowned for being lazy and not reading his council packets.
How about all the absolutely horrible things she has written about Sarann Gramm. Saying she is too old to serve, calls her Granny Gramm… yet Bob Leone is much older than Gramm. She doesn’t like the younger councilmen because they are “inexperienced”. She doesn’t like Sarann because she thinks she’s old (forget the decades of public service Sarann brings to the table). Yet it’s OK that The Great Leone is ancient because she perceives him to be “experienced.” I will give you the fact that he has plenty of experience, but doing what? Again I ask, what has he done to move this community forward? How did he position the town for the need of a sewer system? After all, during those 12 years he was told several times that it was coming. What I remember of The Great Leone was his statement that plants were more important than people, and the fact he was notorious for having not read his town council packet. That to me seems to be what Margo accuses others of doing.
Margo, stop attacking and answer just a few of these important questions about your candidate. I don’t know which one of your many personalities supports him, but the one that does seems to know all about him. Please tell the readers why you trash Lombardo, yet tout Leone as his mentor. Tell us why Granny Gramm is too old, yet Leone isn’t. Tell us what policies The Great Leone put in place while on the council for TWELVE YEARS. Tell us what he did for us while on the council!!
Margo claims to be a reporter so she should be reporting what policies The Great Leone put in place that have made him deserve another term. “Experience” is not a policy any reporter worth a salt would be reporting on. Oh that’s right, you put “opinion” after everything you right to cover your hat.
