So our selectmen screw the pooch again!
They had the chance to do the right thing, All they had to do was follow Pennsylvania's example and immediately fire Baldwin from the board which he fraudulently campaigned for.
Now that Baldwin has been fired from PA. He can give up his home there, trade in his PA driver's license for a NH license, and resume his seat, falsely claiming he intended for the PA job to be temporary, something Town Hall denizens say Billy was claiming when he signed up to run.
Once again Billy's corruption costs the taxpayers of Atkinson to further his ego. The selectmen can find neither spine nor starch with which to act on behalf of their constituents. Lets Recap;
Billy Signed up to run for what NH law calls an "office of profit". He did so knowing he lived and worked 500 miles away in a full time job, that required; a PA driver's license, thus forcing him to relinquishing his NH license, and therefore residency. Night and weekend availability, Attendance at borough meetings. He, knowing all of this ran for an office of profit, in a town where he had no domicile or residency. Many would call this fraud! And the fact that he openly spoke of this around the town hall, means the selectmen likely knew about his residency status, despite their hollow protests to the contrary. This could open them up to accessory charges.
Could this be why they are so reticent to do the right thing and refer this to the NHAG for investigation?
Time will tell, For now we can only draw the logical conclusion that the seectmen have no honor and are likely as corrupt as it appears Billy is.
