BOS are afraid that they're next so they want to nip this thing in the bud.The selectmen are ripping the recall petition? Why? Is there something to hide? I am pretty sure it is this mans right to do this and if he gets the signatures, something must be amiss? That is the first reaction when somebody is guilty, to go on the defensive. As for the selectmen, if they are above reproach as they should be, then there is nothing to worry about.
What's going to be a really rich is when Jim Lane is elected to BOS by a landslide. He's simply more of the same and everybody. Maybe Loew could have actually run a campaign?
