Letters from Town Residents: Katherine

October 10, 2021

To the Editor:

Election season is upon us. If you plan to vote on November 2, ask yourself how much you know about what is going on in our Town. Incumbents are clamoring for your vote, but do you really know anything about the quality of the work they have done?

You may think that because you’ve read newspaper articles about what’s happening in Watertown and Oakville, you know enough to make an informed decision. But local reporting can only tell you what is on the surface, and nothing about what happens behind the scenes.

How many Town Council meetings have you attended in the past two years? By my calculations, the answer is probably zero for almost everyone. I know because I’ve been to all of them. After attending hundreds of Town Council and Commission meetings, I desperately want a change.

If you are not on top of the undertakings of the current Town Council, consider taking the advice of someone who is. Join me in voting for a new direction for Watertown. Vote for all the Independent Party Town Council candidates on Row C on November 2. It is time for honesty, integrity and transparency to guide our Town with healthy discussions and debates of the issues.

Katherine, Oakville, CT
