    Cary Weston’s title is “chair,” not “mayor.” Please read the city charter.

      At some point you are going to have to get over this. It’s just not worth the energy you put into it. A friend of mine once said that the tradition of something overwhelms the facts of it.

         I disagree.  I think it’s important for the public to continue to remind the BDN that Bangor does not have a Mayor.  For some reason the editor at the paper can’t seem to come to terms with that fact.

          Bangor will have a Mayor soon enough, lets get Longo on this one

      The trend continues, no one cares. His placard reads mayor, he’s called “mayor” by the council and everyone else who works for the city, just think of it as a term of endearment.

        Problem is, “mayor” sounds a lot more like “the king” than “Chair” does, to some people.

      Seriously get over it, it used to be called Mayor and Bangor really needs to do it as Mayor

    Councilor Gallant, amazing you are the only one that did not want the new fire chief.  Is there a rule we need to hire out of the people who work there now, you seem to think every department does.

    Fire chief should have been chosen locally…

    • Anonymous

      No it should not have, just like the Code enforcement.  More choices just not locally

    Thank you for your service Councilor Gratwick

    Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on your way out.

    This council put Bangor in more debt then all the others combined, now their running away to try to keep their names out of the mess will be in soon enough.
