Cohasset Selectmen hold love fest for Milanoski

This is becoming so, so predictable.  Whenever the Selectmen gather their remaining supporters en masse – an apparent attempt to show public support – get ready to be sold a bill of goods. This was the less than carefully orchestrated attempt to, once again, sell Milanoski to Cohasset residents as the perfect choice for Town…

The Cohasset Selectmen and the Emperor’s New Clothes
