Recycle baby... recycle

By the slimmest of margins, we approved the purchasing of larger recycle bins, bi-weekly pick-up and most importantly, this will save money and bring our community into the 21st century. I was proud to vote in favor of this, even with the reversions. Recycling rates will improve as time goes on and we will be thankful down the road and so will mother earth.

I was elected Precinct Chair, running on a platform of more precinct meetings, and am on the rules committee. Perhaps while on this committee, I can help tighten the rules for participation by the TMM's. Something has to be done about the half of TMM's who don't show up. And quite frankly, I would suggest an ambulance with a complete staff of EMT's be on hand at each meeting. I've seen homeless healthier people on the streets of Boston.

Watson, can you hear me now?..... Funny how a little pressure on the BOS can motivate the Gov Access crew to do their job. I did find out that Jim Eagan sets up the hall which in my mind, is the responsibility of Gov Access. None the less... bitching about the sound was heard and can only get better with time. Thank you all for your comments about this subject and I would hope, at any time you don't see or don't hear a meeting, you will let me know.
