The Many Faces of Rob Karabinchak

Just watched Monday's Edison Council Agenda meeting. Really now, how much longer do we have to put up with Council President Rob "March on Trenton" Karabinchak's reactions to any questions from the public? Seems he's got a tad bit of a body temperature issue, which he can't quite control, and it comes out when anyone has the nerve to ask a question he doesn't like or who doesn't particularly like his usual non-responsive answers.

Even worse than his verbal responses, which go up and down like a roller coaster when he gets heated, - his facial expressions. Not good to make faces at those speaking at the podium when the camera is on you. That's just a Mucho Tad Bit Not Nice Way to treat people. 

Seems to me that you can't get mad, pout and take your ball and go home when you can't answer a question or simply don't get your way. We're just residents and taxpayers looking for help and or information from the Council at these meetings.

You know, I'm sorry I didn't get pictures of his facial expressions when he was listening and responding to some of the residents at that meeting - but here's the closest thing I could come up with to show you what I mean:

Seriously, someone on that Council should try and have a chat with Mr. Karabinchak about his leadership role in these meetings. We all like people who can lead, just not people who lead with their face. 

Nothing new but everyone deserves to be treated with respect, whether we agree with them or not - and that's something that this Council leadership needs to understand. 

Anyhoo, for purposes of full disclosure, I don't think this guy should even be on the Council, much less Council President - but hey, that's just my opinion and after all, this is Downtown Edison where anything is possible! 

But please, somebody get this guy some Be-Nice pills!!
