Skrlin Draws Blood on Trashy Cartoon

April 28, 2015

For the past year the Dyster administration's trash and recycling plan has been the talk of the town. And how unpleasant and painful that talk has been. With an ill informed council and a trash contract bid procedure straight from the bowels of the deepest and darkest recesses of Paul Dyster's city hall, the residents don't know if they're coming or going let alone properly throwing their trash and recyclables. It was only a matter of time until Dyster and Gang fell victim to the rapier-like cartoon pen of Gerald Skrlin. Just as the lid pops on a classic Jack in the Box child's toy the lid on the trash tote has popped to reveal more than just a tote to be filled. It reveals a trash and recycling program rooted in contradiction, incomprehensible regulations and costly expenditures. Yes, the weasel has indeed "popped" with a super hero of a mayor at the helm of a very leaky bureaucracy, a veritable Captain Trash: Paul Dyster. While critics justifiably make the case that the mayor is not only not a super hero, but rather the villain in a badly conceived scenario. And so it will be up to the voter to decide if the mayor's political career ends in a dumpster.
