Why didn't I think of this?

Why didn't I think of this?

"Progress For Westhampton Beach," the party of Mayoral candidate Maria (Mrs. Tom) Moore and Trustee Junior Palmer is up and running.

It cites some issues facing the Village, including:

  • The Asphalt Plant. The subtitle, "14 Years of Litigation, No End in Sight," suggests an attitude, but takes no position.
  • Jury Trial Required for Sign Code Violation. Noting the "charge is a misdemeanor," the Moore/Palmer position is that the local law under which Shock Ice Cream has been charged is "inconsistent with the spirit of mutual respect and cooperation required in any community" and "should be changed now."

    (Sounds good, but what's it actually mean? How exactly would Village Code §197-83 B be amended?)

  • Eruv. After a brief update to the on-going litigations, the Moore/Palmer position is "We are one commu­nity that must remain without divisions."

    (Again, what does this mean? It sounds good, but then that's the whole purpose of platitudes.)

It's a shame that there is no debate scheduled for this election... these are meaty topics indeed!

  1. Should the Village abandon the asphalt plant litigation and let the residents of Rogers and Hazelwood Avenues go it alone?
  2. Should the Village discontinue prosecuting Sign Code violations if the business owner objects to being cited?
  3. Are you for or against the establishment of an Eruv in or around the Village?

Take a clear position on these matters!

As for "Why didn't I think of this?" I didn't have to, 'cause I've had OtBB for the past seven years, and no one's ever wondered where I stood on anything.

Memo to Junior Palmer: wanna really put some content on your Website? Don't just claim you "retired as a captain from the Air National Guard," post a copy of your DD 214?
