Licensing Board Members Refuse to Step Down at Mayor’s Request

March 8, 2012

Two members of the Licensing Board who were asked to step down so the mayor could appoint those in whom he has great faith have refused to do so.

We believe that when a new mayor is elected and he asks for resignations that it is a matter of long established protocol that the board members do as he asks and in a timely fashion.

To do otherwise is to perpetuate a situation that finds the mayor not wanting them, not relying upon them and wishing they would leave so he can make his own appointments.

Inevitably, the situation becomes hard to deal with which is exactly what is happening with the Licensing Board.

The members asked to resign should do so immediately.

    WHY SHOULD THEY RESIGN?  THEY WERE APPOINTED TO A TERM OF YEARS.  IF THE INTENT WAS TO SERVE AT THE MAYOR’S REQUEST THEIR TERMS WOULD HAVE RUN CONTERMINOUS WITH THE MAYOR’S TERM.

    LETS BE CLEAR, THIS IS ALL ABOUT LETTING BARS STAY OPEN UNTIL 2AM AND THE TWO REMAINING BOARD MEMBERS ARE STANDING THEIR GROUND AND STANDING WITH THE CITIZENS AND HOMEOWNERS.  RIZZO IS STANDING WITH THE DRUNKS AND BAR OWNERS.

     What a divisive piece of dribble.  Ad Hominim arguements are the last gasp of someone who has little amunition and or evidence to support their claim. 
       When anyone wins office they can, and should have people that they know an trust in positions of authority.  This has been going on for decades now.  To marginalize taxpaying citizens who may lawfully consume alcohol at local establishments is flat out wrong! 
         You seem like just another control freak, and a sour puss at that!  Why don’t you move to Saudi Arabia? (they dont like alcohol there either).
