Town Board Meeting                                         7-14-2020


               Well tonight, New Lebanon had it's Town Board Meeting at the Park Pavilion instead of online, for the first time since the shutdown. They were blessed with perfect weather for it. What a beautiful evening it was! After MUCH consideration, I decided NOT to attend. The 2nd T.B Meeting I have missed in over 10 years.

Husband has a Drs. appointment , and it would have been a rush to get back in time, for one thing, but that wasn't the main reason. The REAL reason was how I'm feeling about the things this board, minus Councilman Newton, has been doing during this shutdown, and the many things they pulled during the campaign that are still not answered for.
Icing on the cake being the plain fact that these people stood in support of BLM, which for ME, is closely akin to Treason. NO American that stands against their Constitution and in FAVOR of a Racist, Domestic Terrorist, Violent, Hate Group, has any RIGHT to hold office. That should be cause for IMMEDIATE removal, and it is something the People should be demanding.

As a result of the heinous actions and behaviors of this board since last Fall, I was unsure of my ability to not lash out in anger during tonight's meeting, and I am smart enough to know that I needed to avoid that at all costs. I will never allow myself to sink to THEIR level and behave like THEY do. I will get my justice in the end, and I have been patient for MONTHS, due to Covid. I can be patient for one more month.

So don't rely on my blog THIS month to inform you of the proceedings, you'll have to read the minutes when Marcy gets them done. Reading the minutes is something EVERY resident should do, EVERY month, if they cannot attend the meetings in person, which would be the BEST thing they can do. If you don't have email access, you can contact the Town Clerk and request a printed copy be sent to you.

All important actions begin with small steps, from the bottom, UP. Engaging in your local town government is VITAL to the Health, Safety, and Economy of the community YOU live in and raise your children in. Your Right to speak and be heard, to have influence over important decisions, are gifts that many others in lesser countries have never known. USE them.


Happy Birthday tomorrow to my husband, Bob Smith!!!
