The talk of Trumansburg today was the resignation of mayor John Levine and the meeting tomorrow night at which his successor will be appointed and, depending upon who that successor is, a member of the Village Board of Trustees may be appointed as well. From the comments I’m reading here on the blog and hearing out on the street, it seems that popular support is growing behind the idea of John Hrubos as mayor and David Filiberto appointed to fill Hrubos’s position on the board. Both positions would be up election next year, to give voting residents more of a direct democratic input.
There appears to be some coffee house politicking going on as well, as the daily Trumansburg Gimme Coffee sign, seen here, indicated today. Now accepting applications: 1) Barista, and 2) Mayor – Apply within. Would you like whipped cream on top of that?
