Arrogance (Ar"ro*gance) ...

The act or habit of arrogating, or making undue claims in an overbearing manner; that species of pride which consists in exorbitant claims of rank, dignity, estimation, or power, or which exalts the worth or importance of the person to an undue degree; proud contempt of others; lordliness; haughtiness; self-assumption; presumption.
Synonyms -- Haughtiness; hauteur; assumption; lordliness; presumption; pride; disdain; insolence; conceit; conceitedness. See Haughtiness.
Overheard at last night's Town Board meeting (actually, I believe that it was meant for us to hear it; us being Concerned Citizens):

Earle Reed, Town Supervisor speaking to Christine Krupa, the "chosen" Republican candidate for Ward 2 Councilman:
"I spoke to Trainor and everything is all set. Trainor has handled big names like "Toyota" so there will be no problem. It is all taken care of".
So that's why Trainor was "nosing" around Concerned Citizens website...interesting..sounds like a PR blitz is on the horizon!

Jerry Green, town attorney and Chairman of the New Hartford Republican Party, speaking to Dan Vincelette, legal counsel for the Preswick Glen lawsuit:
"Dan, meet Christine Krupa. We expect she will be the new Ward 2 Councilperson before the Preswick Glen case is settled."
And not for nothing, but even if the Open Meetings Law didn't apply to the Stormwater Advisory Group, why on earth would any town board pass a resolution to close the meetings to the public...the people who are dealing with stormwater issues...the people who are being taxed over the next 24 years to pay for a $2,000,000 bond to fix the stormwater problems? Why would you do that? Arrogance?

The fact that the Open Meetings Law does apply to the Stormwater Advisory Group makes it even more disturbing!

Time for Change!
