Newburyport, George Says Kudos to the Mayor

Such a dreary, wet New England day… sigh.

George (the political consultant for the Newburyport Political Blog) decided to take a cushy flop and contemplate the state of the city or whatever frogs contemplate when they sit on a bunch of pillows– good grief, pretty cushy for George Cushing.

George Cushing being cushy

Apparently George Cushing of Frog Pond at the Bartlett Mall has decided to turn his contemplation to Nancy Colbert our new (I think as of tonight when I hope, I think it’s this meeting, the Newburyport City Council gives this young lady the thumbs up) Newburyport Planning Director.

You see George knew Nancy way back when (when she was Newburyport Planning Director, before) because he was dwelling at Frog Pond at the Bartlett Mall when the Bartlett Mall was beginning renovation to its historic High Street state.

And like many a project, embarkment often comes with some sort of complaining at some point (George, is trying to figure out if there is a exception to this… he’s contemplating.) And, it is George’s opinion that Ms Colbert handled the touchy parties quite deftly. So he likes her. Plus she contributed to making his home nice, so, of course, he likes her a lot.

even though he’s still on a pillow

George and the frogs at Frog Pond at the Bartlett Mall have been very supportive of Newburyport’s Planning Office and they do hope that that could continue to be the case.

It seems to George that Ms Colbert may well be a soothing balm on often cantankerous procedures. And his (and mine of course) great hope is that parties involved will calm down enough to find some sort of common ground and the City could begin to move forward with foresight and intelligence.

A very good choice by Mayor John Moak. Kudos to the Mayor– job/pick for job well done.
