The big fellow in red is Lower Nazareth Township Manager Timm (that's mm, damn it) Tenges. In 2008, he once consumed most of a supervisors' meeting lambasting a blogger. Posing as "FULibs", he continued his tirade at NewsOverCoffee. He detests bottom-feeding bloggers. Who can blame him?
But he loves developers. In fact, he just finished helping Lou Pektor ram through some pesky zoning changes that would allow for 180 townhouses and 140 single homes at Trio Farms. This development started out as an age qualified development back in 2004 and wound up getting approved last week for market rate housing. I'm sure the school district will love all the extra kiddies.
I smell another fishin' trip!
Gifts in excess of $250 must be reported on annual disclosures, but Timm's reports for 2005 and 2006 report no gifts at all.
Who knows, maybe he paid for Pektor. I've asked Tenges to explain the 2005 fishing trip, and will post any response I receive from "FULibs" here.
