I felt the same thing when I saw that discussion. Doesnt Brien know that what he was so confusedRead Moreab out happens all the time. According to the council minutes on the city's website, its already happened a few times since he's been president which he was ok with and happened dozens of times since he got on the council, and many of those times it was him making the same exact motion to table that he now seems so puzzled about and challenged Councilman Mancieri about. Unless if there was some other motive behind his newfound confusion. Best comedy on TV.

Hold on. Don't put it all on Brien. Though, he does have his elderly moments and he does think that Read Moregetting louder makes things more clear, I can see his confusion at that moment. If you all agree to table a resolution, and you want to table a resolution, and you clearly state that your intention is to table a resolution...why would you put that resolution up for an approval vote? Council101: "Motion to table". "Second". Vote. "Resolution tabled". See you in a month. But instead it went into a calamity after Gendron motioned to approve. Then Brien is all like, "Why are we approving if we agreed to table?". The comedy about it is that the city lawyer is sitting 20 feet away and he's like "I don't know what you're trying to do, but you're all just gonna ignore me anyway."

exactly SH.. you'd think he could have put an end to the madness, but just sat there and made itRead Morewo rse. I guess those years up at the state house wasnt enough to get the basics of roberts rules..Too concerned about following Fox Rules :) Then again wouldn't acknowledging that they had "agreed" to table something prior to the public meeting be admitting to an open meetings violation ?

It was time for her to protect one of Tavares Directors so if he becomes Governor maybe we can getRead Morea ll the $$ lmfao!!!

Isn't it true that once a position becomes available in towns/cities of the state, they are to have Read Morean open bid for the available role?

Let's hope it's a very good reason. I thought Mr. Bruce was doing a good job!! And I think theRead Moretaxpa yers of Woon. should be told the reason why he was let go. I guess she can't stand anyone who was in Fontaine's adm. What a Mess!!!

Just a distraction folks. As everyone knows, Woonsocket's central issue is taxes. Keep buying theRead MoreBS though, i always enjoy a good laugh.

It was always a fact that we were going to have FDK! People are finally seeing the truth about this Read Moremayor! She's going to shove this down our throats until you puke on it! We can only hope for receivership so the mayor loses her abusive power because if you're negative or don't go along with her she gets rid of you.

Lately, EVERYTHING that's been happening here in Woonsocket is BS!!!!

You might be a Woonsocket millbilly if . . . . . . You like meat pie . . . You still think oneRead Moreo f those guys was "the good Brien," but you haven't figured out which one. . . .

You had a blow-out with your husband because he said that lovely singer at the Stadium's Diana Ross tribute show was really a guy. . . . You do your Christmas shopping at storage unit auctions . . .

Keep smiling, all she's done is continue to spend spend spend and fire anyone who speaks outRead Moreagainst even when they're right and she's wrong!!

And its obvious KS that to some she can do no wrong, thats the way politics is. There hasnt beenRead Moremu ch of a change. going back for years and it continues. Funny how when Baldellli was a state rep and running for mayor she said that all of our problems were fontaine's fault, but now that she's in the hot seat, she acknowledges that we're in the mess we're in because of cuts in state aid.

I agree with Jay - we have to give the new Mayor and her administration a chance ... at least I'mRead Morewi lling to do that - and I don't belong to her political party!

Well this was my very first blog about something and I see people are as fired up as me about these Read Morecrazy tax rates. I was driving into the city from a different way and realized the city was not very big and wondered how this could get messed up so much with all these houses one after another. Such a big budget for a small city. Even the old mills were turned into condos that generate a very large amount of tax revenue .Passion is good! Good luck to all.

Why should we give her a chance when she's not giving anyone at city hall a chance? If you are not Read Morea yes person, then she's terminates you or belittles you in front of the cameras.
