The Doug Church Saga Continues
After yesterdays alleged break in event in Doug Church's Downtown building, Salisbury News informed the local Police of the multiple problems with the entrance door.
Mayor Ireton just summoned 47 News, (as usual) to come down to that building while Mayor Ireton simply walked up to the security door and opened it right up without any problem whatsoever.
As we stated yesterday, there's so much moisture on the door it swells to a point in which you cannot close it in order for the lock to close. In other cases it swells so much you cannot even open the door. The first image clearly shows ALL of the paint gone around the inside of the door because of such swelling.
I'm sure you'll be able to see the 47 News interview tonight where we're told Mayor Ireton becomes quite irate about the situation and even though Salisbury News was the one who tipped the City off with the problem, we're not the "play nice" news organization in which Mayor Ireton will recognize. Nevertheless, this should make him look pretty darned foolish, since we're letting the cat out of the bag ahead of time.
One would think Doug Church would be right on this, especially since his Father was down at the building today doing demolition work to a commercial suite. Tenants are irate. We should add, this has been a problem for more than a year now and Mr. Church has NOT fixed it.
It's a shame Mayor Ireton is grandstanding on this issue. It's a bigger shame that the City Inspectors who were aware of the problem last week DIDN'T do something about it.
Mayor Ireton, rather than the LOOK AT MEEE in front of the cameras, perhaps YOU can be proactive and do something about it. I personally think you'll look like a fool bitching about the problem when tens of thousands of people will see this first and know you knew about it and couldn't get the City to take care of it. We need more laws, right Jim?
