What a month June has turned out to be. The town had three elections; our regular June election, an emergency special town meeting, and, second special town meeting election because the town officials thought we needed more time and a special election day to vote on five articles.
Speaking of elections, at the last selectman meeting, June 14, SAD 68 school board informed the town that school board representative Alex Dade had resigned.
The board had an opportunity to fill Mr. Dade’s seat with a simple selectman’s vote, costing no money or special election. But they refused to do so. So much for “it’s for the children.”
Two candidates had applied to Jack Clukey to fill the seat on as a temporary position until the next election in November. One of the candidates was Ron Perry, husband of selectman Joyce Perry, who abstained from the vote, as she should. Ron had received over 400 (446) votes in the June 8th election, but didn’t win a seat on the school bard.
The town has lost a voice on the school board by not filling this position immediately. One would have to wonder was it a vote against Joyce Perry? Just asking.
On June 19th Dover-Folcroft had it first tea party and rally at Kiwanis’ Park at the gazebo. Lots of speakers on a very warm and nice day at the park.
The theme of the day was less government and more accountability, less spending at all levels of government, local, state, federal.
Speaking of government, this coming Wednesday, June 30th, at Central Hall, several Dover-Republicans will hold a caucus to elect a town committee officials. 6:00 pm at the old town office.
How about some family fun? Sunday, June 27, Milo Car Show at the JSI Store parking lot on Route 11. 10am to 2pm. Fun for all ages. See you there.
