Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

If this saying is true, then the "cheap seats" Selectman should have no problem getting back into office. Not surprisingly, SS was absent at least 20 times in his last term, an late at least 11 times. Mr. Frawley, also running for the seat, has been at more meetings in the last two years and has a better attendance record than Steve "Cheap Seats" Spataro, and he isn't even a Selectman.

Which of the two would be up to date on the issues? Which of the two would have listened to all the debate and done the research? Mr. Frawley.

The cheap seats are apparently really valuable to Mr. Frawley as he makes sure at least one is kept warm and polished each week with his butt. If you have watched him, he also brings his brain.

I may not agree with every position he has, but he spots problems and offers solutions. He speaks his mind respectfully and professionally. He comes ready to debate the issues, and he is engaged. Sure would be an interesting change of pace, and while familiarity breeds contempt, familiarity is also the result of actually showing up to meeting and showing up on time and prepared. By the way, I don't think he would sit and text message during the meetings.
