AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH............Noooooooooooooooooo...it's true, that old goat Bill Spingler, King of the Malapropisms is finally President after a million and a half years of hanging around.
Bill Spingler is representative of old school, Delco politics. (Not a compliment) And ya know what Spingler? That is an opinion. Mind you, you would never allow anyone to say that to your face at a meeting, because we all know how you like to zip through process and avoid public comment unless it's your own.
However, Radnor residents have no one to blame but themselves. There could have been a different outcome, but that would have meant people would have had to get off their asses and voted him out of office.
It will be an interesting year, here's hoping it's not disastrous. Spingler, given his habits is not one who needs more power, he needs a babysitter. Will Bashore be back for that letter of reference Slick Billy promised back in the day?
Will cronyism and political back scratching favoritism rule the day in 2012?
Will they ever use the ethics bord or will Spingler abolish it?
And here I thought it was bad enough that Rick Scrotorum...errr Santorum did well in Iowa...but then again there is no accounting for taste in politics. And in Radnor, it's historically two steps forward, ten steps back.
This may be the year of the fool in Radnor. Or a ship of fools, take your pick.
Dashing off to get coiffed and a massage....I earned it after this news. And gack to the Main Line Media News reporter who waxed poetic about Spingler becoming President. And oh yes, Ardrossan came up -Radnor needs a little swamp land, after all:
After the meeting, Spingler, a self-employed real-estate broker who grew up in Strafford and moved to Radnor when he married in 1962, was asked about his goals as the board’s new president. He said he will strive to “shepherd issues” and “put votes together.”
He said he will also be an advocate for encouraging responsible residential and commercial development.
“We have a great community now but we have to let it grow,” he maintained.
Another goal is to seek acquisition of a portion of the Ardrossan-estate land, the largest undeveloped tract left in the township, when it becomes available for sale to create passive open space, explaining that it would make for an ideal contiguous addition to Skunk Hollow and Saw Mill parks.
Cha-ching! Billy loooooveeeess OPM (other people's money)
