The polarization within the Monroe Common Council is once again showing its unfortunate face. In online comments to The Monroe Times this week, alderman Thurston Hanson sharply criticized fellow alderman Jan Lefevre for taking credit for fighting special street assessments for 16th Avenue residents in 2008. Lefevre's comments were included in the candidate profile information she supplied to the Times in advance of the April 5 election.In his criticism, Hanson makes it clear Lefevre only came on board with his opposition to charging street reconstruction costs "eventually" - after he brought the situation to light.
