Letter: No great surprise here

To the editor:

I generally don’t like gadflies, but I wish Sam Callis were alive to continuously remind us of the incompetent ways of our City Council.

The under-the-table manner in which a raise recently was given to the city manager is unconscionable. My greatest fear has always been that — on a night with a light City Council agenda — they may give away all the city’s assets.

The City Council has not yet proved me wrong. What is next? Maybe sell the Constance Wharf parcel for a dollar? Give the airport to the U.S. Navy for an outlying landing field?

As the great author, Mark Twain, once exclaimed, no man’s life, liberty or property is safe while Congress is in session. Is the same thing true when the Suffolk City Council convenes?

Surprising Suffolk!
