Ding Dong the Witch is Gone!

Amherst Select Person and former Czar Anne Awad is going, going, GONE as of of September 1'st! (because she moved to South Hadley on or about April 10'th).

Of course now you gotta wonder if she votes on the winning side of an issue over the next two months and it's a 3-2 vote, is that going to hold up in court?

I wonder if Ms. Awad's resignation in September was the plan all along or if it was a longer term on the Select Board enabled by an Amherst Voter registration and a commute over the notch from South Hadley. We'll never know. Who's running for the seat?

I'm thinking the latter.

Once the bricks and mortar media spreads the word we will see who comes out of the woodwork to run for the seat.

I believe you will see it was the plan all along.

That's my inclination too but for nor specific reason. When Ms Awad decided to buy the South Hadley residence, the writing was on the wall. Still, it's confusing that Ms Awad would not just announce the decision publicly rather than play coy and appear shifty.

Deval Patrick gets to appoint one (of 5) members to the Amherst Housing Authority board - and I think that this is the year he gets to do it.

Wanna bet that......

Gov. Patrick has already appointed his rep. to the Amherst Housing Authority. He appointed Robert Phillips to the Board for a 5 year term.
