After watching Acciona, Voters for Wind, Councilmen Mason, Mason and Orvis pass a resolution a year ago to "impeach" our Town Supervisor (They lost.), I can understand why Mr. Mason might expect retribution and think he is a target of the Cape Vincent Town Board. And then, after Mr. Mason, along with the help of political leaders Harold Wiley and Gary King targeted the seasonal people who were voting in Cape Vincent by circulating a petition and passing an illegal voter identification law, I can understand why many might think Mr. Mason might have done something bad and deserved to be targeted. Right from the get-go, the new supervisor and new councilmen themselves, became political targets of what one JLL reader constantly reminds us of being "The Oligarchy".
However, the operation of the Cape Vincent water districts is much more than political folly. Serving the town with safe and sanitary water is one of the bigger tasks of our town government. At some time all municipalities must face these issues that require updates and reviews and, with politics aside, this is the time to do it when we have fresh minds and new energy on the present Cape Vincent Town Board.
But, Brian Amaral is right. Elections do have consequences. That is exactly why we have elections.
