In his remarks, which can be read in entirety on the town website,;, he accused a select few people of waging a campaign to undermine the Current govern- ment. The audience remained silent as Post read off numerous allegations that included having meeting rain -. utes stolen from Town Hall, hav- ing a tire slashed on his personal car and being the subject of an ongoing series of derogatory list- ings on a blog site. He said anonymous bloggers referred to one town official as a Judas goat, which he admitted he had to look up to learn that it meant one goat that leads .others to slaughter. He called those who resort to such anonymous b!ogs cowards. Post said the current mayor and council were criticized for follow- irig the same policies as previous elected officials followed for years in methods of filling town committee positions and naming replacements to unf'mished coun- cil terms. He said the budgetary and decision-malting methods the current elected body uses are more open and transparent than those used by previous administrations. In listing accomplishments of the town since April 2006, the mayor included purchasing and furnishing the new Town Hall for $750,000. He said drapes were purchased from J.C. Permey at a 50 percent off sale price and hung by town officials. Furniture was purchased at 60 percent off from a state-approvedvendor. Post also touched on plans to privatize the sewer construction and operation, which he said saved tax payers' from having to vote on borrowing up to $20 mil- lion. He said when contract specifies are made public, resi- dents will understand the wisdom of the choices that mayor and council have made. He praised current town employees, noting the town manager and other staff are dedicated to helping all.Milton move forward.
