Trumbull's Political Poet: 'Just Blame Ray'

A commentary on the Nichols' sewer work


'Ode to the GOP Leadership'



         Carol Hudak


When day is done,

And you've had no fun,

And the sewers aren't flowing your way;

Stand up tall,

Give it your all, and . . .

Just Blame Ray.


The Forensic Audit proved nothing,

 (an expensive piece of stuffing)

With zero of substance to say;

Yet it opened the door,

To WPCA spending galore,

And now you'd better . . .

Just Blame Ray.


While Tighe&Bond is sitting pretty,

The rest of us are feeling . . . pity

for the excessive sewer costs, we're forced to pay;

You know what to do,

Cry, boo hoo! Boo hoo!  and . . .

Just Blame Ray.


When an extra engineer would do,

You hired a crew,

Creating financial dis-array;

The town's raising a stink,

(It's far worse than you think!)

Hurry up! and . . .

Just Blame Ray.


The town's in a tizzy,

Sewers are making us dizzy,

though it wasn't always that way . . .

Each flush costs far more,

Than ever before,

And guess what!!

We blame YOU -

Not Ray!


Folks, the moral is clear,

Whenever you hear

of an earthquake or war underway;

No matter what's wrong,

It won't take the G.O.P. long, to . . .

Just Blame Ray.

Well said Carol, typical of Mr .Herbst to blame others for his failures and take credit for others successes....BRAVO!

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain--not when you can Just Blame Ray! I'm curious, though. At what point do the growing number of messes that have occurred on Herbst's watch become his responsibility and not Ray's?

No one but the most ardent Republicans on the TRTC (Trumbull Republican Town Committee) are buying the blame Ray game for North Nichols. Not when the WPCA is virtually all TRTC appointees. Not when Trumbull Republicans asked for and received MILLIONS for Tighe and Bond Oversight. Not when Trumbull Republicans asked for and received funds for a "forensic audit". No Sir, North Nichols is brought to you by the Trumbull Republicans and all of us taxpayers are going to pay. Great poem by the way!!
