Maser Screws Up Again

“Wasn’t an error of Belmar”

(Except that we hadn’t already replaced our very bad engineering firm.)

    It was an error by Belmar. They hired them didn’t they?

    I’m building a house in Belmar, and believe me the town has their nose in everything that happens at my property. So it’s hard for me to believe Colleen when she says,”This wasn’t an issue with Belmar, it was an error of the professional”. Maybe Belmar shouldn’t have hired that Professional!

    The Queen of Mean is always quick to pass wrong-doing unto others rather than say she was wrong. Who would believe anything this nut has to say?

    I’m actually laughing out loud here. How long did it take them to notice the wires? After all the lights were up?? Maybe if our former Mayor and admin payed a little more attention to Eugene Creamer when he spoke (instead of tossing him from meetings) they could have prevented this. So much for the great “grant” for the streetscape. And isn’t Maser the “great” engineering firm that soaked us for millions over Taylor? Oops. Sorry. I’m being negative again.

    Two years ago I attended one of Belmar’s car cruises and one of the exhibitors asked me why the street lights were out. I did not have an answer.

    Maser contributes to Belmar’s politicians, one way or another. They cannot be alienated. Pay to play.

    Quite frankly, I think the whole room of people should have stood up and turned their backs on the mayor and council. Giving the finger, if that is what the person in question did, is a first amendment right. Appropriate? I don’t know, but in my opinion a lawless mayor and council who denied people their civil rights are not worthy of respect. Sorry, but I applaud Mr. Creamer for his guts.

    How are you in the know, number 4? Great assumptions. The laugh could be on you. What is it they say about the word “assume? “

    Where is that Read guy who always gushed over the former mayor? Or the mayor fans who think he is so wonderful and praise him at the meetings? Maybe the B.A. can invite some shills to step up to the microphone and say positive things. The call is to clean house and one way is to hammer away at the crap.

    How I know number 12 is I was at the meetings that Mr Creamer brought up issues when they were installing electrical. He brought up issues and was summarily dismissed. So I’m not assuming anything. Although I may be an ass in some people’s eyes.
    # 13. You call it belittling. I call it as I see. Agree or not. Our former Mayor and business administrator had no problem putting up a huge sign on the corner of borough hall claiming credit for the wonderful street scape. So if they can claim credit, they should be able to accept responsibility also.

    I’m Sure There’s going to be another billboard sized sign on Main Street at Borough Hall / Board of Election site before Election day stating Belmar f’d up again by not respecting Mr. Creamer’s advice and warnings about the inadequacy and dangerous electrical streetscape installation

    4, 10, and 15-Now I’m laughing out loud . For those of you who defend Mr. Creamer’s constitutional right to do what he did. If a Democrat did what he did to one of you, HEAVEN FORBID! The perceptions are so one-way . Also, 15, I think you missed the point of the assumption post. While I’m not a big fan of the business administrator, you don’t really know what really occurred with the lighting issues. You are guessing, therefore “assuming. ” You continue to fuel the fire of discontent as an attention-seeker.

    If someone gave me the finger, I would just laugh. It is pretty difficult to insult me. You, whoever you are, ASSUME you know me. I don’t care.

    18-I’ve seen the reaction of individuals who thought they were wronged or slighted . These are the people who slam council members on a regular basis. They act so demeaned, and at times outraged when they think they’ve been wronged. You are a big person, 18. But there is a time and place for everything. Giving the finger by a teenager who is doing so in a joking way to a friend, or giving the finger at a public meeting ? You tell me.

    There is a long history of tarring and feathering outlaws. Shall we regress to that method of expressing outrage and punishment against those who offend us, like the former mayor and certain council members, or the individual who merely presumably gave the finger to those upon the dais? Come on now, giving the finger “ain’t nuthin” as a form of protest. Move on and get on a more meaningful bandwagon, like ousting the scofflaws in power. Unless certain persons approve of (or do not recognize) the shenanigans committed by the former mayor and his minions, that is, and in that case, metaphorically should tar and feather themselves for being part of the problem! Dang, someone pissed off.
