Everyone foolishly thought landfill activist and District 3 candidate, George Peterson, was going to let his previous clownish attack on the Citizens for Good Government, for their mentioning excessive Council campaign contributions, simmadownnow. Who would have thought the landfill activist would turn his criticism and insults up several notches and accuse the CCFG of being “ladies lacking common sense” to their faces.
Well, it wasn’t the ladies’ angelic faces which changed after Mr.Peterson’s tirade. Mr.Peterson’s earlier clownish appearance, which grew scary at the previous Council meeting, began to take on a much more sinister look as audience members again began to have coulorphobic anxiety. Councilman at Large (pun intended) Chrissy Roberts seemed to enjoy seeing the CCFG get roasted over and over as Peterson repeated his “ladies lacking common sense” insult again and again. BOYS AND GIRLS IT WAS PREMEDITATED, PREMATURE TRICK OR TREAT ON THE CCFG. The CFGG’s main Inspector General proponent, President Young,who had left the building earlier to catch a flight to D.C. must have experienced burning ears himself in route, as the Council of Clowns had also sprung an earlier Pearl Harbor attack on MIA Young and his entire administration fleet.

Especially those citizens and respiratory sufferers living in close proximity to the onerous, odorous River Birch landfill.
However, a few weeks ago Mr.Peterson himself became a candidate for Council District 3. Shortly thereafter, during a Council ‘s heated debate with members of the CFFG, involving the new contract to operate the JP landfill expansion,, Mr. Peterson started to show signs of clownishness. Mr. Peterson ranted on how the JP landfill was mismanaged by CDM contractors, who oversee the operators by treating the foul odors and scaring the birds away, and endorsed IESI to manage the new expansion. He also stated how all the foul odor was solely coming from the JP landfill and definitely not from the the River Birch dump. So Mr.Peterson, if what you say is true what was the intention and purpose of River Birch’s $700,000 mitigation fund?

If the Kelvin Landfill (JPL) closes as part of a deal with River Birch, where will Team River Birch get the land to expand their landfill down the line? (Hint. Industrial zoned land sports the highest valuations.)
