Ogdensburg City Councillor Nick Vaugh missed three consecutive City Council meetings in the Maple City so fellow Councillor Mathew Flynn wants him kicked off the Council.
Mr. Flynn suggests provisions of the City Charter justify his position and that absences must be excused and he says these three were not.
Mr Vaugh says he had some bum wisdon teeth.
I met Vaugh for the first time a few weeks back when he stopped by with Congressional hopeful Matt Doheny. I didn't check on his wisdom teeth.
In Watertown, we don't require an excuse for absence or tardiness. Our feeling is the public will judge the job done at election time.
If Mr. Flynn is upset about absence he is welcome to sanction Mr Vaugh by airing his criticisms to the voters. Council members kicking out other councillors....Not a good idea.
