No one in their right mind, unless they are in dire circumstances, would want this job...

It will be nice to get rid of Dutch,the incompetent idiot.

No mention in this article about the 3d projector. Why ? They could raise more revenue with the projector then the Rockingham police.

From watching the meetings, it's obvious that that select board is very timid about the whole 3D Projector idea. Ann Dibernardo convinced them to wait until this fall without much of a reason why other than "the price should come down". They are pretty much still in that holding pattern and will likely remain so.

They are not taking into account that the advantages of having a novel capability like that for this area will diminish as they become more common-place. Then they will be looking into getting one just to stay relevant as opposed to actually capitalizing on a new and unusual capability in this region.

Basically I think that the select board are not all that technically savvy or really up to date on something so modern. They will most definitely miss the boat on this opportunity. That was a forgone conclusion even as we were voting on the funds to purchase the equipment. I had no faith at the time they would follow through any time soon.
