Actually ...without even being asked , they have sacrificed millions to pay taxes that support the overpaid, overstaffed,overbenefited unions for years and years . Modern day Unions have killed this Country , and they are too ignorant to admit it .

Unions have gotten no raises and higher co-pays. The problem is the selectmen didn't bring in more businesses in town and too many managers.

He loves to egg on the public by blaming the unions for his own mismanagement. The unions have taken a bunch of no raises as well as higher co-pays. This guy doesn't bring in more businesses (like Home Depot), more revenue (ambulance- works in Westford plus his cronies was on the study board),auditorium at the school when it wasn't nessacary, get rid of the north library, teachers they are the only ones that don't take pay cuts like everyone else, plus Phil is a bafoon.
