Tonight a meeting of the BAR with 24 items, more on that in a separate post later.
The Village Board hired consultants to investigate organizational aspects of the Assessor's office.
The problem is volunteers, or nolunteers - volunteers who do nothing. How do you let go of volunteers who do nothing ? Who are not responsive to residents' pleas year after year, term after term ? They just sit there.
The resident gets up, talks, complains. She or he has a genuine complaint. They just shuffle paper, sit there until the next election. Some make politically correct statements, but say nothing. They just want the vote, the power, to be able to say "I was trustee in Scarsdale". We become a line on their resume...
Little will others know, they delivered nothing. I agree, it is a big job. But don't accept it, if you have accepted it, deliver. If not, make provisions for others to deliver. To do nothing in 2017 is to go backwards. The world is spinning at a rate it has never done before. This is the age of global competition in everything. Our VB thinks it is still 1908... Houston we have a problem ! No, we have many problems !!!
Another year, another wife and husband team. One goes another grows.
I will remember not to vote.
