Ian MacMillan wants to be reappointed Harbor Master and is appealing for our support. He absolutely deserves it. MacMillan was forced down our First Selectman’s throat by Governor Malloy, thus thwarting Tesei’s own patronage scheme to award the post to the husband of a supporter. In the two years since, MacMillion has driven Peter crazy, demanding that our town mooring fields be rationalized, ending the preferred treatment of the Boating Friends of Peter and so forth. Some of MacMillan’s actions and ideas may be a bit wrong-headed, but the idea that someone paid $600 a year can unsettle the status quo so thoroughly is astonishing, and welcome.
Besides, the comic relief of Tesei’s angry reaction to MacMillan, often boarding on the insane, is priceless. Keep it up, Ian.
