Hi Bryan,
I was very interested in your comments in today’s (Jan. 10) Independent & Free Press (Lewis wants the status quo for library hours of operation.)
I was recently asked to donate some money to the library (they are looking for something like $1 million in donations), and after spending approx $14 million of taxpayers’ money, I was somewhat shocked and annoyed.
I was never against a modest improvement to the library, but when the Town is seeking funds for an addition to the hospital (the first addition in over 30 years that I have lived here) and extra ice facilities,(because of the huge increase in population), I feel that the library price tag was way more than we needed to spend.
Ms.(Jane) Diamanti (Director of Library Services) is a superb saleswoman but needs to be challenged on every one of her requests for more town money!

The media yaps about everything that would divide us

and take sides instead of " just the facts ma'am ".

It has gotten progressively worse since the Chatten days

and these past years have been more divisive than ever before.

guess what I really would like to vote for in their Polls is 'ALL OF THE ABOVE',

but the media disseminates it in their preferred political standpoint 24/7 ...

Tell me when this thread is updated:
