Let us return to the Town of Windsor dear readers. No police Department, no highway crew, no school, no library, no bloated retirement program for former employees – almost a low tax nirvana you might say - except of the “Immoral Windsor Majority”.
As pure democracy goes, you have all the failings of it highlighted in this tiny NH hamlet. That would be the usual gang of self-serving locals and wanna-bees who use the 50% plus one advantage to do things such as pick the pockets of their neighbors, pass zoning regulation but ignore it themselves, create income producing projects for themselves, and hold highly regarded elected office.
But as we sit and wait for the Melanson and Heath auditing firm to valiantly try and figure out whathappened to the taxes the Selectmen and Tax Collector did randomly and wantonly collect for the single year 2007, one wonders what happened to the uncollected taxes of friends and relatives of the Immoral Majority pre 2000 to 2006?
Recently, the Selectmen ABATED the taxes of some of the insiders which were not collected from 2000 until the Windsor Taxpayers exposed the long running scam in Superior Court with their Right to Know case.
As luck would have it, the Windsor Immoral Majority LOST all the financial records from before 2000. That’s the “Windsor Way”. My suspicion is that there would have been a “dog ate my homework” excuse in 2008 when once again the town finances collapsed from fraud and mismanagement.
The score in this game so far:
Random Tax Collector and Taker Carer of Friends Beverly Hines – resigned, stuck on incompetent, may have to claim she is bi-polar if this goes south.
Selectman and Coverer Upper of Beverly Hines – resigned, stuck on stupid, may have to claim a medical condition if the audit goes to 2000.
Windsor Selectmen – stuck holding the racketeers together until something breaks, may have to plead collective prove bi-polaritis.
Windsor Taxpayer Association – One pro se court win, court costs reimbursed, clean hands, possesses the most complete collection of town records in existence, got a front page story about Windsor corruption on the FRONT PAGE of the Boston Globe on March 28, 2008, can walk away from this any time they want.
The Windsor Immoral Majority – Can still elect or appoint any like-minded candidate they choose (wow), can mutually comfort themselves with fantasy stories about how wonderful they are, stuck being themselves, seem to be fighting amongst themselves on weekends? Is that a new Windsor hobby?
CNHT – we have an inside look at and proof of the way the NH Department of Revenue and the AG’s Office have covered up, so far, for the incompetent and possibly criminal actions of the Windsor Immoral Majority for eight years we know of, more info for the Professional Conduct Committee on the behavior of one attorney, Paul Apple, of the Upton and Hatfield law firm - who has been a thorn in the side of good government in several towns and schools we operate in, the right to bring our own Right to Know case, and don’t forget that court win we had when the Windsor Immoral majority tried to keep a video camera out of Town Meeting 2006 (front page Union Leader story there).
