Harrison Elks

Recommended Posts

Guest T.A.B.

I have been a member of the Harrison Elks for many years. This once proud organization has become a political annex for a certain member (who is also a member of the Town Executive Board) who wields power like a follicularly challenged Dictator. I have witnessed abuses of power within the lodge and politicking, that has nothing to do with keeping the integrity of the lodge. How many Elks Members have Town jobs? How many people have joined the Elks just to get to be one of the “in” crowd and better position themselves for a possible Town job? This Dictator also has a sidekick (who also works several recreation jobs for the Town) that does most of his dirty work. A once proud organization with many voices has become a Banana Republic, with only two “my way” or “the highway” voices.

Good people have been turned down for membership because of their ethnicity, as this particular lodge has become a Caucasian only establishment with people of color often just treated as a minority looking for a charitable handout. Cutting ribbons at Grand Openings and filling boxes with clothes and food after a tragedy with a fake smile and a squishy handshake was never the intentions of the original initiators of The Harrison Elks. Politics was strictly prohibited and the lodge was never designed to be a Tammany Hall.

There's is another disgraceful example of white male domination in Harrison called the Harrison Fire Department. This $10 million a year taxpayer funded Caucasian retreat for the politically connected is as bad as it gets. It's a friend's & family charity that uses everything except guard dogs to keep minorities out. It's only a matter of time before the NAACP sues Harrison for the blatant racism. It's my opinion that African Americans, Hispanics, Orientals and people of Indian decent can sleep, eat, shit and run personal errands as good as the white privileged Firefighters. Corruption is a cancer and lawsuits are the cure. The residents will learn this the hard way.
