It’s beginning to seem like a distant memory, or perhaps just a fever dream.
Remember when Scott Milne promised to roll out his platform in September?
Well, here it is September 19th, and the only shred of policy we’ve gotten is an ill-thought-out proposal to freeze property taxes for two years while we figure out a new system. No hint of how local schools are supposed to cope with rising costs for salary, benefits, and energy, among others. And no clues about the kind of system Milne would like to implement.
Anyway, on Thursday Milne made an appearance before “30 people” at the Colchester-Milton Rotary. (I wonder hwo many left after the raffle and before the guest speaker.) And perhaps out of sympathy, Seven Days sent reporter Mark Davis to cover it.
Which produced this nugget:
Milne offered few specifics of his agenda. At various times, he told the 30 people in the crowd that he would release his own plans for health care, education and job creation in the coming weeks.
“In the coming weeks”?
Will somebody please remind Our Man Mahatma that Election Day is only six and a half weeks away? I’m concerned that his Staff Fabricator may have convinced him the election is actually in November 2015.
