Coucilman, Eric Stein missing 8 consecutive meetings as the laison to the Media Business Authority was one thing. Councilman Kent Davidson's shenanigans regarding what many claim to be a conflict of interest regarding Third Street Bridge (he lives 40' from the bridge) is another, not to mention the undisclosed website he was found to be providing to Friends of Glen Providence Park. Then you have the inappropriate behavior of Paul Robinson insulting groups like Middletown Township, RTM School Board and Upper Providence for their interest and concerns over the Third Street Bridge. During all of this, not one person on borough council even batted an eye, let alone stood up an spoke out.
Last night the hits just kept coming with Council President Brian Hall blaming a calendar of all things for not being able to rule on a zoning change submitted by an applicant. Perhaps borough council wasn't prepared, perhaps the applicant submitted incorrectly; but to skirt the responsibility and blame a calendar is pathetic. Not in my professional career have I ever heard someone use such an excuse. This community and the applicant shouldn't stand for that either.
It's becoming clear why it took Wawa 14 times to present their plans to the borough in the last two year, or why we're going on 19 years without any clear direction on the Third Street Bridge. No one on council knows what's going on! $20,000 for poorly made video sold to the borough by a telemarketer? Sure, why not. The company that produced it was fined for fraud! And if you saw the video they did for Media, you wouldn't have any trouble believing that.
