Grammatically there should be one biggest loser. However, this is Darien politics and there are many biggest losers. Here are the biggest losers resulting from the RTC/Caucus fiasco. There is overlap so you may want to consider using a Venn diagram to follow along.
The first biggest losers are the people of Darien. They are governed by an incompetent Republican Party that controls all Boards and Commissions. You can start with the BOE and the special education scandal. Then there is the BOF with its fraudulent non-audit review of special education billing to the state.
The next biggest losers are the readers of the Darien Times. The real editor of the Darien times is Republican First Selectman Jayme, “Gone Girl,” Stevenson whose children were babysitters for Assistant Editor Susan, “Horror Show,” Shultz who authors horror stories. The biggest horror story is the weekly edition of the Darien Times which didn’t cover the police report filed against “Gone Girl” entourage member John Boulton by a female member of the RTC. In my opinion, “Gone Girl’s” entourage is a time bomb with “political thugs” that she does nothing about. The readers of the Darien Times simply do not get the truth about what is really going on in Darien.
I call Republican First Selectman Jayme, “Gone Girl,” Stevenson “Gone Girl” because she is killing Darien and getting away with it. Putting Darienites at risk by not having paramedics based in Darien, the black hole that is 35 Leroy and failing to get another moratorium are just some of the reasons that the people of Darien are the biggest losers with “Gone Girl” as First Selectman.
Danny formerly the “Duke of Darien” and now the “Traitor of Darien” because he stabbed his long time friend Joe Miceli in the back and supported “Gone Girl.” “The Traitor” is a biggest loser. “Gone Girl” needed the “Traitor’s” support like she needed Ebola. The “Traitor’s” obsession with the RTC has never translated into an effective RTC.
The RTC does have members who are good people trying to help Darien. They are in the minority and just got run over. Fred Conze became an RTC member. The theory was that he would run for First Selectman in two years when “Gone Girl” is gone. Fred is a great guy but he is a biggest loser.
Jennifer Sommer was “Gone Girl’s” pick to replace Jerry Nielsen until I disclosed that she hadn’t paid a bill in years. At the last minute, Kip Koons was selected to replace Sommer. I am told that Kip is a member of Wee Burn and therefore a must have for the BOS. Kip is also the owner of the parking lot at the Darien train station and can probably pay his bills. He is also probably worried about imminent eminent domain as applied to his parking lot by the state. Whether conflict of interest will prevent him from voting on development issues remains to be seen. His voting could spark years of litigation which is just what Darien needs. I recommend that Kip bring a jbug of Bombay Sapphire gin and tonics to BOS meetings and pretend he is on the 19th hole at Wee Burn.
Spencer McIlmurray is a biggest loser. He went from being a Republican nominee for one of the most important jobs in town to changing from a Republican to Unaffiliated voter in two weeks. You can read my comment “Hung out to Dry” for more details. The title speaks for itself..
I am going to stop. The RTC is a mess. The Republican controlled government is a mess. There are many biggest losers but the biggest biggest loser are the people of Darien.
