The rift in the sleepy riverside Village of Alexandria Bay grows as the premier Bay website, ABay.com, came out today and ripped Mayor Terry Robb for his remarks about an upcoming motorcycle rally in June.
The editorial comes down hard on Mayor Robb, and since I don't know him, I have no opinion of him, other than to say its important always to respect the duly elected representitive of the people. There's always another election if the rift cannot be healed.
The Mayor's opposition to the bike event has gone viral and brought attention of all kinds to the Bay. The event will be held as the Village Board OK'd the logistics of the June event.
Mayor Robb expressed concern over "Bad Bikers" in a recent board meeting. Because of the Internet and bloggers the remarks became known and the fur has been flying.
Since the event is going on, I would urge opponents of the Mayor to keep it civil and deal with their concerns through the electoral process. Some of the comments have been intense.
