If you have a problem with pot holes on your road you will now need to get approval before you are allowed to bring up the topic at public council meetings.
Free speech has been a tool that the public has used many times in the last two years to bring up items that the Council wont look at..... its a way of keeping the Councilors honest. Do you think Chairman Larochelle would have given permission to speak on the Illegal tax deduction taken by Larochelle LLC. ? of course not.
There seems to be only one reason for this change and it to keep attention away from uncomfortable issues.
Did the blog’s force Larochelle’s parents to take these deductions. I don’t think so.
According to the Maine property tax people in Augusta there is no such thing as a "special lifetime Homestead Exemption". All exemptions are good until they no longer apply.
I think Larochelle LLC got caught taking an improper tax deduction and is now embarrassed. I’m glad they paid it back. It was the right thing to do.
The above named Councilor Gina Martin should have read Councilor Gina Mason.
The very act of using her position as Councilor to disparage Mr. Fillmore in public is in violation of Lisbon Council’s Working Rules.
Councilor Pomelow was correct that one third of the town’s legal budget was spent on court cost associated with Mr. Fillmore. What she didn’t tell you was Mr. Fillmore WON those court proceedings. The court system agreed with Mr. Fillmore more than the Town of Lisbon.
I would say Councilor Pomelow’s statement proved the legitimacy of Mr. Fillmore’s so called “Allegations”.
None of those recent spending bills, initiated in the house, became law without the President signing them into law.. President Obama is the one responsible for most of our huge debt.
Democrats voted for the bail outs as well as a few Republicans.
You are describing presidential candidate Dr. 'Ron Paul. His consistent actions over the last 40 years speaks volumes.
Thoughtful compassionate letter. Too often we sentence people and forget them.
