DON’T SLEEP ON GAVIGAN: Dave Gavigan caught on tape dozing off at Planning Board meeting
TOWN HOUSE- The errant siting of Kingston’s supersized wind turbines has left some town residents to ask if the Kingston Planning Board was asleep at the wheel when the site approval process for the turbines went through without a hitch in 2011.
Well, funny story…
The Journal’s cameras were rolling on Monday night as recently re-elected Planning Board-member Dave Gavigan dozed off–at least five times–during the Planning Board’s long-awaited discussion about shadow-flicker regulation.
Gavigan, who couldn’t help awkwardly looking directly into the camera every time he startled back to life, ran unopposed for re-election this April to walk into a second-consecutive term on the Planning Board.
We didn’t ask Gavigan if it was the soothing Southern accent of Town Planner Tom Bott or the sweltering summer heat that was causing him to crank out the yawns…but whatever the cause of Gavigan’s hypersomnia…we recommend that Gavigan picks up a Red Bull before the next meeting.
