Currently there is a petition going around asking our dishonest mayor to look into creating a LONG OVERDUE skateboard park...the only problem is that they are asking the one person who could care less about the idea.
Reagrdless of what the Danbury's most dishonest public official is babbling in response to the skateboard petition on Twitter, he has his pawns on the city council have been blocking an ad-hoc committee requested by council Democrats from meeting FOR OVER A YEAR!
News-Times, Feb. 7 2011
Members of the City Council have established a committee to review conditions at local parks and examine future needs. Council member Fred Visconti, who proposed the creation of the committee with council member Duane Perkins, said needs that constituents have identified at Rogers Park prompted the request. Those needs, he said, include more parking and building basketball courts and a skate park. "I realize we don't have the money to address all these needs, but if we could take a look at them then we'd have a plan for the future," Visconti said.Whenever Boughton wants something he gets his pawms on the council in order and they pass whatever he wants at warp speed BUT when it comes to something he either dislikes or a proposal that didn't originate his his thick skull, the plan will never see the light of day.
He added that it has been some time since the city reviewed its rules and regulations for the parks.
"It's time to go over the regulations and see if there are any problems," Visconti said.
The ad hoc committee, which was created during last week's City Council meeting, has yet to meet.
In short don't believe Boughton's hype...more later.
