Borough loans
By Angelo L. Martin


June 30, 2010

No , No , No. Have you not learned from past history? I was a Borough Assembly member when the mill closed and when we got the 25 million dollars as the economic disaster fund . I voted to give loans to the bowel factory, Veneer plant, etc. Only one word describes it -- DISASTER!!

I was voted in with the most votes, voted out with the least vote. I was accused of benefiting myself. I worked very hard on plane manufacturing , bottle water plant , mining fish waste from Norway and even called Donald Trump. I lost my business, boat , home, and retirement. I even spent a lot of my own money -- I was still accused.

The Borough needs to form a separate entity away from the Borough and elected officials. You know what Insanity is -- DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS !!! PAST HISTORY IS A GOOD INDICATOR OF FUTURE HISTORY , DON'T DO IT !!!
