Well first the good news. Dennis Brunelle is off the board of the Saratoga Springs Housing Authority. The Mayor will appoint his successor at Tuesdays City Council meeting. With that out of the way I begin.
Thought I would check out per-agenda meeting at City Hall. First Skippy didn't make an appearance but no one seemed to notice
Michele Madigan showed up at the meeting looking like a left over from an early morning cocktail party. Wearing a very revealing black blouse at the council table I was shocked to see a nipslip at the table as Madigan bent forward. Really Michele leave the Victoria Secret look for home will ya?
Anyway things got off to a tenacious start as the Mayor and Madigan spared over dueling agendas for the purchase of land on the Kayaderosseras Creek from the Blodgetts . Madigan at one point said to the Mayor “says you” as this exclusive video shows. Thankfully the Mayor DID NOT respond ‘YA SAYS ME”
For an alternative look at the purchase of the property check my friend Ben Arnold s blog HERE
STORY IN TU TODAY
Repair work all in the familyHERE
On a more serious note there is a very serious argument taking place about how knowledge of buyout talks for Ed Spychalski's contract made its way to my blog. Since I am part of this story I will explain how I received the info.
I was told by a second part that Michele Madigan had told them that Al Colucci had given her that info. So it ended up here.
Today at the pre-agenda meeting both Al and Madigan were asked point blank by Dennis Yusko if Al had told her that. There is no delicate way to put this, but Al and Madigan are both calling each other liar.
And finally for the first time the name Wickes construction was brought up by the Council in regards to the SSHA by John Franck. It’s not Wickes construction but Wickes Enterprises, a pool outfit out of Mechanicville New York.
Seems there are some questions about how much work they have been doing around the SSHA properties. Seems the pool business had taken a toll on this company in the recession but they did get the job of putting a nice pool in at Housing Director Ed Spychalski’s house. Now people are questioning if the owner might be Ed’s wife’s nephew.
See you tomorrow night.
