Town Manager Chris Senior on tenderhooks

What hath God wrought?

TM SeniorTown Manager Chris Senior has a lot of landmines to avoid over the next couple of weeks.

Annual Town Meeting is this Saturday (May 2) beginning at 10 am in the CHS Sullivan Gymnasium. There are 21 articles and Advisory and Selectmen are in favor of all them with 5-0 and 9-0 votes.

Article 16 (recommendations to be made at the meeting) deals with the leasing or purchasing of 91 Sohier Street, built by the Social Service League of Cohasset. The League was the only group that put in a proposal. Documents you might wish to read before the meeting:

Lease Sr. Center PDF: – proposals due April 24

Buy Sr. Center PDF: – proposals due April 24

Town Manager’s Due Diligence Report:

The reason the Town needs to go to meeting over the Senior Center is because it is not a gift and state laws permit the Town to spend a finite amount of money on leases. See documents above.

Also up in the air, with no information coming from Town Hall, is the Police Chief search. After the $16,000 search there were three final candidates, and a message on a Facebook Page called Citizens for a Safe Cohasset announcing that the Town Manager had chosen a finalist other than Acting Police Chief Bill Quigley. It is unknown who administers this page. This blogger thinks it’s Quigley himself. After we accused Quigley of running it, it kind of came to a standstill.

We did learn from reliable sources that the Town Manager has been threatened with his job if Quigley doesn’t get the job. These Cohasset people are a mean-spirited bunch.

In any case, there is no police chief appointment on the Selectmen’s April 28th meeting agenda.

Town Elections are May 9. Three people are running for one seat. They are Selectman Martha Gjesteby, Advisory Chair Peter Pescatore and School committeeman Paul Schubert.

It is thought that a Schubert win would drastically change the politics of the board: like maybe a return to the fiery Milanoski years when the agendas were 8 and 10 hours long, the legal bills were colossal, and Milanoski wrote glowing articles about himself in the Mariner. May God have mercy on us.

A Schubert win could turn Senior’s Mayberry into…THE GATES OF HELL.

Just our opinion.
