Letters from Town Residents: Liz

Dear Sir:

I went to the Fall Festival and had an opportunity to stop by the booths of our political parties. Each of

the three parties was distributing a flyer to the public. As the majority on the Town Council, the

Republicans chose to feature their self-described accomplishments. Number one on their list is “Hired

new Town Manager.”

That says it all. Their biggest accomplishment was accepting a job application from someone with

neither the degree nor the experience they advertised as required for the position, followed months later

by a decision to hire the same applicant and to pay a six-figure salary.

The Republicans have had the majority on the Town Council for more than a decade. They have built a

solid reputation of favoritism for friends and cronies, and of disregard for the needs and problems of

everyone else. Their self-praise and preening is the clearest message possible about what and who they

value and their lack of focus on what is in the best interest of the majority of the voters.

Because of resignations, we have a rare opportunity to change the Town Council’s majority party in this

election. On November 2, I will be voting Line C for the entire Independent-Democratic Town Council

slate of candidates. And, and I urge you to do the same.
