UPT Board Meeting Notes 5/7/18 Episode 7: The Peter Principle

If someone else were Chairman of the Board in Upper Providence, I would suspect that the reason for the length of the Board of Supervisors’ meetings is to deliberately cause residents to lose interest in the proceedings.  As readers are probably aware, there is little to no independent press coverage of these local municipal Board …

UPT Board Meeting Notes 4/16/18 Episode 6: EMERGENCY!

I arrived at the 4/16 Township meeting a couple minutes late on purpose: I specifically wanted to avoid John Pearson’s tedious recitation of his handpicked passage from Chicken Soup for the Soul.  While I thankfully missed Pearson’s pocket sermon, unfortunately, the meeting room and the reception area outside the meeting room were absolutely packed.  I …

UPT Board Meeting Notes Episode 5: Special Fire & Emergency Services Meeting

I attended the April 4 special meeting in person, but even so, there were things I missed, or comments I did not note at the beginning of the meeting that had special relevance to the overall presentation and the conclusions about that presentation, so rewatching it online was instructive.  If you haven't watched, and you …

‘Stormy’ Conditions; Limited Visibility

In spite of all appearances, Democrats don’t really care about President Trump’s alleged affair with Stormy Daniels.  Sure the salacious details and the painful daily drip of information compounded by Trump’s increasingly implausible denials make for a sordid and compelling media circus, but that’s not why Stormy Daniels is suddenly the darling of the left.  …

UPT Board Meeting Notes 3/19/18 Episode 3: Preservation Reservations

Gentle Reader, if you haven't engaged in the activity of thinking for a while, your humble blogress has a prescription for you:  tune in to the Upper Providence Board of Supervisors meetings every first and third Monday, where Board Chairman John Pearson indulges his ego and reads a Googled vignette into the record, the purpose …

UPT Board Meeting Notes 3/5/18 Episode 2: Campaign Trail Promise Fulfillment Season

I’ve got no post for 2/20/18 meeting, but I would like to note that Supervisor Phil Barker’s rejoinder to the Democrats’ “kicking the can down the road” talking point on fire and EMS made at the 2/5 meeting is definitely worth a watch.  He even brings props.  It begins at 1:47 in the 2/20/18 meeting …
