What does it really cost to care? A lot. Even if you did not agree with me or anyone else that truly tried to change the tide of complacency at least we were willing to step out and try, but at this point the cost is too high.
What is really the worst part of the cost is being lied about and lied to. I want to address one particularly egregious lie that was told by a prominent employee of the borough. None of the volunteers of the former Historic and Parks Commission EVER called any council members or the mayor, assholes PERIOD. First of all I cringed when I typed that word, but it was what was said in a meeting about us and it is simply, unequivocally, a flat out LIE. Have I said that members of council were BEING buttheads? Yep sure have, but I have NEVER called them a name as mentioned.
One other thing that has been bothering me is the duplicitous attitude and actions of a certain former member. This person does not need to be named, but the actions need to be addressed. Your resignation was nothing more than a smoke screen so that you could wiggle your way back into the good graces of those whom you called names and could not believe that they would "be that way". YOU were the one who suggested how we approach council and sometimes had to be talked into tempering what was said. I hope you are happy with how you have betrayed and treated those whom you called friends. I hope that the new group of people that you will work with are aware that nothing can be done by anyone but those that you deem qualified nor can any money be spent for anything that it was intended for unless the work is done in house by under staffed overworked borough employees.
What is done is done. Do I care anymore? Nope not in the slightest. Are any of us slinking away with our tails between our legs? Hardly it's just that the cost is too high and most of us are unwilling to pay it anymore.
