Cape Vincent no longer nice, friendly town


Abraham Lincoln said, “... and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.” We all were taught it meant all people.

Why would Paul Aubertine, Dennis Pearson and Alan Wood try to exclude a group of people? What about their civil rights? Remember the quote, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

The politics in Cape Vincent are reminiscent of the politics in the south, in the 1960s, trying to prevent the blacks from voting. One has to ask when are the beatings and hangings going to start?

The landowners and their extended families do not represent the majority. If you want to shut down the political circus, you have to get rid of the clowns.

Last election, we had more than 300 absentee ballots. Talk to your neighbors and friends, and we can get 600 absentees.

We have to stop being complacent and vote. We cannot allow the bigoted CFG and the Democrats to put another member on the board. Just look at what they offered up last election.

Another quote, “Remember the Alamo.” Well, every time you see one of their candidates, remember those are the guys who tried their best to keep your friends and neighbors from voting.

This is the only way we can stop this madness before someone gets hurt. This sure isn’t the nice friendly little town I moved into 14 years ago. The wind issue and underlying prejudice have changed all that.
