Longtime councilman to step down from Lawrence Township Council prior to start of the new year, according to a report published by the Lawrence Ledger.

Councilman Greg Puliti yesterday (Wednesday, Dec. 26) submitted to the township clerk's office a letter of resignation explaining that, due to "professional obligations," he will resign from township council as of midnight on Dec. 31, 2012, according to a report published by The Lawrence Ledger.

That makes a lot of sense. It wasn't his fault? But when things are good they sure do take credit don't they? So by this logic, no politicians are at fault for the financial mess that this country is in, just blame it all on the recession?

One councilman resigning,,too hot to stay..One down and how many more embedded council members to go? The entire council members and Mr K should all be ashamed of showing their faces in public..A fee for bulk trash, that 98% of the people will never use is outrageous!!! Where will this money go? Cut back on your salaries,cut back on your raises...STOP THE GREED!

Councilman Greg Puliti's lasting legacy: 31% tax increase in 4 years (2008-2012) while his constituents languished in recession 59% tax increase in 8 years (2004-2012) Attempted extortion in order to ram through a 17% tax increase in 2012 Passing the 4% annual GARBAGE TAX for all residents regardless of use Passing the 13% annual RECREATION TAX for working families And the final act of shame: Resigning in disgrace, immediately after voting for the GARBAGE TAX, knowing he was a "lame duck" and voting for it anyway. Shenanigans to the last day. We must send 2 NEW People to Council in November. Maybe some sort of checks and balances will restore our faith in local government.

Puliti - certainly the worst councilman in Lawrence history!!! Skies are a bit brighter over Lawrence after his resignation.
