From banning solar panels, to not paving roads, to shitting in the waterways that pass through the lives of millions (and then pointing at Chelsea), to the founding of the John Birch Society ...

Stay KKKlassy, Belmont

Banned Solar panels??? When I visited my son recently I couldn't help but notice every other house having those wretched so called solar panels. If they are banned then the police and zoning board aren't doing their jobs!

Just to win a chance to exercise any kind of dominion over not even 25,000 people. How small are his opponent's (expletive)?

I note that (pretty clearly) the same anon posted twice at the top of this thread. Wonder if he has extra hockey pucks at home.

Those seem more like comments aimed at Belmont as a whole rather than any specific candidate.

the candidate isn't really the target; maybe the real goal is to sow dissension, and subvert democracy in Belmont. Maybe he's the Vladimir Putin of Arlington.

Maybe they expected their comment to appear immediately and reposted when it didn't?

What makes this particularly odd is that the candidate seems utterly uncontroversial, and there do not appear to be any issues at stake that might have raised tensions
