I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
I held myself back and bit my lip. I really wanted to get as close to The President as I could today, and boo loudly as he passed by.
Thoughts of being singled out by the secret service restrained me from expressing my dissatisfaction with the mess he has has created. So I stayed home.
I was no Bush fan either, but his performance was markedly better.
The only other President that raised my hackles as much was Richard Nixon.
