I was amused by the comments of Amherst’s assessor about the lawsuit by Jemal to lower the assessment of Blvd Mall. His argument is that it’s somehow unfair of the owner to vindicate his rights in court because it will cost the town money to hire lawyers and get appraisals done. Cry me a freakin’ river! If the town had knowledgeable municipal lawyers on staff instead of the usual coterie of political boot licks and ass wipes that they put in those positions they wouldn’t need outside counsel. And it’s not Jemal’s problem that the town, under the “management” of Planner Kulpa, is in fiscal trouble because it’s become a dumping ground for Poloncarz castoffs who are put in 6 figure do nothing jobs .
