Re: Town of Lisbon and the Brunswick Housing Authority

“Most of you do not know this but a former council sold Brunswick Housing Authority 4 Campus Avenue for $1.00 and with it went over a MILLION dollar grant for the renovation of the building by Federal Grant. The property at the time was valued at $265,050.00. I understand that the Brunswick Housing Authority is a non-profit organization but the Town of Lisbon is not. The Town should not be making concessions like this and now the Town is willing to do all the trenching and then pay for half of the paving even though there is no benefit to the town from the MTM center to 4 Campus Avenue. Why should the taxpayers be forced to pay anything for this project?

On the agenda for May 27, 2014, there is no “Audience Participation” so the people will not have a chance to speak on this subject.

Please review this proposal by Mr. Leighton and tell me if you believe that this inept performance is worth the $78,000.00 plus Mr. Leighton receives as a salary from the town. This is exactly what you get from an individual that has absolutely no credentials for the position.

So why does the Interim Town Manager and the Town Council accept a proposal that is incomplete and does not present ALL the facts in order for the Council to make a competent decision?” Read more HERE.

  1. Hi!

    Too much power by anyone is an imbalance and can be subject to corruption.

    At least at the local level, the people have a voice, and if they don’t, then it is fraud and treason against the people.

    As the “original” constitution of Maine says: “All power is inherent in the people” (Article 1, Section 2), and all cities, towns and plantations are required to uphold the people’s rights.

    The local people need to exercise their rights otherwise the corrupt officials win.

    Step up: Voice your opinions and vote. It is your right.

    Thank you!

  2. Hi!

    Local power can be corrupt, too.

    Look what happened recently in New Hampshire when a lawyer was arrested at a school board meeting.

    This was so wrong.

    Arrested for going over a 2 minute limit. This is outrageous!

    2 minutes?

    Outrageous, too!

    Thank you!
