Honest Harbormaster Is Driving Peter Tesei, Karen Sadik-Khan, Zoubeck,Peter Silbereisen And Other Members Of Greenwich's Politically Privileged Boating Class Crazy
Greenwich Residents Can't Stop Laughing As Tesei’s Angry Reaction To Harbormaster MacMillan, Often Boarders On The Insane
The Tesei administration, which has no time for water main breaks, traffic in the streets or crumbling schools seems to have an endless supply of money and time to go to war with our $500 a year Harbormaster, Ian McMillan. Why might that be?
Well it might be because, Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei gets his feelings hurt when someone says NO to him.
When Dan Malloy didn’t give him his handpicked choice for Harbormaster because, among other stupidities, Tesei insulted Malloy and told him to “stay out of Greenwich”
Gee, I wonder why we don’t get anything back from Hartford......Thanks A Lot Peter......
The problem is Harbormaster MacMillan was forced down our First Selectman’s throat by Governor Malloy, thus thwarting Tesei’s own patronage scheme to award the post to the husband of a supporter.
Billy Fox name was at the top of the list submitted by Tesei and Govenor Malloy chose another name that was on the list.
Governor Malloy's legal advisers said that given Billy Fox's job as a Stamford police officer, "there was concern conflicts of jurisdictional authority could arise.
Malloy ultimately made a choice from the list. It's was still one of his Peter Tesei's recommendations ... but it wasn’t Tesei's "real choice".
The unsuccessful Billy Fox iis married to Diane Chiappetta Fox, an ally of Republican First Selectman Peter Tesei.
Peter Tesei and Diane Chiappetta Fox were so pissed off, that it took almost three months for them to finally gave MacMillan the keys to the boat that comes with the position.
So, Peter "Lets Go To Court A Lose Again" Tesei has made a commitment to waste endless amounts of his time and your money on this Harbormaster jihad.
Regardless of whether the Harbormaster was doing a good job or not, Peter Tesei WILL NOT REST until he defeated our dastardly Governor and protected Greenwich from…….what exactly?
No one seems to know, but comedy reigns on the waterfront of Greenwich.
But it can’t be only hurt feelings that induced Peter "Lets Go To Court And Lose Again" Tesei to spend literally hundreds of thousands of dollars OF YOUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS to lawyers to give him the answer that he craves – that Peter has the power!
It can’t be that they call Aamina Ahmad, a town paid attorney “The Harbormaster” at Selectmen meetings because she spends all her time, and your tax dollars, just on harbor issues?
Or could it be Greenwich's political class doesn't think that the rules don't apply to them (i.e. "Rules are for the little people")
Did Karen Sadik-Khan, a long time Peter Tesei enabler, demand that Peter cast out that horrible Harbormaster because he told her she had to move her mooring in Old Greenwich a few feet away because......the ex-wife of the shellfisherman who owns the rights to that area told her she had to pay $200 for her mooring and she balked because DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM.
Now Karen "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM" Sadik-Khan is demanding Peter "Lets Go To Court And Lose Again" Tesei and your tax dollars support her drive to change 400 years of law so she doesn’t have to move a mooring?
The problem is that....
Karen "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM" Sadik-Khan feels that because she lives on the water’s edge that her authority goes out to the high water point, but it doesn’t. That’s an important point.
Someone needs to educate Karen "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM" Sadik-Khan and Peter "Lets Go To Court And Lose Again" Tesei about what people’s rights truly are.
Or is it ex-Officer Peter "Screw Windrose Way" Silbereisen, who teamed up with Republican operative Chuck "I Should Get Special Treatment" Zoubeck to try and trick the Harbormaster into, I don’t know what?

GREENWICH TIME: Former Greenwich Police Officer Peter Silbereisen Involved In Weird Waterfront Child Porn Accusation Scandalhttp://www.ctpost.com/local/article/Mooring-madness-devolves-into-porn-accusation-4727321.php
Everyone pretty much agrees that, Harbormaster Macmillan, was acting in the town’s best interests under his authority by moving Zoubeck boat out of relatively shallow water and away from an osprey nest.
Zoubeck, was moved just to the north of Tweed Island, is in deeper water and well outside of the (state-mandated) 600-foot circle around the ospreys.
Chuck "I Should Get Special Treatment" Zoubeck and silly Peter Tesei, both went nuts at at a Board of Selectman hearing with all kinds of crazy conspiracy theories about why his mooring was moved away from the osprey nest.
In the end cooler heads prevailed and the three selectmen told Zoubeck they preferred to first receive additional guidance from the state. Finially the mater was dropped.
But this was not before Chuck "I Should Get Special Treatment" Zoubeck had a conspiracy hissy fit about ex-Officer's Peter Silbereisen’s mooring being moved, because it was blocking a channel maintained by boaters in the Windrose Way Association.
Peter, afraid as always of a strong person in his space, was afraid of Peter Silbereisen and went along with this nonsense at a public meeting.
Or was Peter afraid of saying no to Zoubeck,
But in any case he was ready to have a Board of Selectman meeting in the middle of the Harbor to do, I don’t know what?
But I think to overrule our Harbormaster because you know our brave little Captain Tesei has so much experience in nautical issues.
Peter Tesei, wont tell you this, but....
Chuck Zoubek had a mooring for 45 years, but there is no record of Zoubek’s moorings. He’s never registered. The man is a scofflaw who doesn't want to pay his fair share and cheats his neighbors.
Of course, dingbat Assistant Town Attorney Aamina "Harbormaster" Ahmad did Peter Tesei's silly little bidding, by saying lets waste Greenwich tax dollars in court, because moorings are not mentioned as part of the state regulation creating the buffer zone around osprey platforms.
Peter "Lets Go To Court And Lose Again" Tesei wants yo have a taxpayer funded Town Attorney go to court and argue that 45 year mooring fee scofflaw Chuck Zoubek should be allowed to have his private boat disrupt an active osprey nest.
And the nutty part is that Peter loses every time, even for the hundreds of thousands of your tax dollars he wastes like Captain Queeg, worrying about strawberries , um moorings, while he plays with his balls and runs the ship aground.
This is both embarrassing, and pathetic as the Harbormaster's time is constantly wasted, because he ended the preferred treatment of the Boating Friends of Peter Tesei.
MacMillan counts among his accomplishments creating the first-ever inventory of the town's moorings -- complete with GPS coordinates -- as well as his advocacy for dredging. He also said he has responded to every email and phone call he has received as harbor master.
Old Greenwich Yacht Club Commodore Tom Drake has repeatedly credited MacMillan efforts to organize the town's moorings with helping the yacht club attract new members.
MacMillan is very intelligent man who battles for the things that he thinks are legally right.
He just really loves the water and loves boaters and boating and cares about the waterfront.
He's not afraid to tell the town `you should be doing x, y, z and you're not.'"
He is passionate about the waterfront.
