noisy altercation or quarrel over petty matters."Petty."
Do you see how the word skews the whole story? You, petty citizen, are angry about a seven-year contract for one of the highest-paid bureaucrats in Exeter? How dare you bother us over such trifling matters. Shut up and open your wallet. Russ 100k Dean needs his ransom.\
And what in the world is Belanger talking about? "Longevity"??? What does that even mean?
Plain and simple: this is a crony deal where the tax consumers mulct the rest of us.
Shame on them.
