Alderman Albert Teetsel lost his cool tonight attacking me before I even had a chance to walk into the Common Council's Chambers. Teetsel railed off at me, saying that I unfairly attacked him over his attendance record. Alderman Teetsel screamed that he had missed meetings because of a personal family matter not because he was slacking off. First, I had a very similar thing happen in my family at the same time as Teetsel did..actually a week apart, so I am certainly sympathetic to him.
With that being said, Teetsel's poor attendance record is only half of the reason why he is a poor law maker. Teetsel is a dead beat Alderman and does nothing for his ward or for Kingston. Teetsel sits at his seat and votes with the majority...never questions anything or speaks up for anything. Matter of fact if he did not confront me tonight, I'm not sure, I would know what his voice sounded like.
Alderman Teetsel if you don't want to do the job than don't run for the office...you were given a free ride this time, enjoy it, it will not happen again.
