Eldridge selected as new Town Manager


Brunswick now has a new “Mr. Manager.”

John Eldridge won the job in a 5-3 vote, with Councilor John Richardson absent due to ‘another commitment.’  Suzan Wilson, Jerry Favreau, and Dave Watson voted against Eldridge.

You learn some interesting things in Augusta.  Like when to be in Rockland.

Congratulations to Mr. Eldridge.

An update:


In what surely ranks as one of the finest examples of chutzpah ever uttered by town councilors, the Ostrich report on the Eldridge vote contains this passage:

Wilson and Councilor David Watson said their votes in opposition were because they said the full council ought to have been present during the vote.

We’re beside Side’s selves on this one.  Shirley that’s the way the votes will be seen by those in the know. 


Note that this time, Bert didn’t echo Ernie; they voted the same, but used different reasons for their stance.

  1. Eldridge was the only choice. He knows where all the skeletons are buried. Unfortunately he is also aware that if he tries to blow the whistle he will be hurt more than those he tries to expose for their corruption. It proves the old adage the corrupt take care of themselves until one of them gets a little too greedy and doesn't share.
