    2,His neighbours were angry at the municipality just as he was.

    If you put a comma after "municipality" in #2, they are both OK.

    Re: He could sense

    In the first one, I want to put a "that" where you have "as."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
