Shirley will do this the wrong way .That guy Brian something who always gets involved in campaigns and looses everyone he has been involved with will get involved with this with no real knowledge of what he is talking about and try and rurin it . But hopefully he will get involved with it and the majority of the Shirley people will see him speak aginist it and then it will pass . Jack from Shirley

Jack you are as (in)coherent as Bryan whats-his-name. WOW.
And the man he battled so viciously for is gone for now due to a drubbing at the polls
Eyes are opening to the RSD double talk.
So perhaps its time to cut through the violent rhetoric and get right down to the bottom line facts and figures. "Trust me" speeches from the RSC should not be accepted MOs anymore. Folks, wake up. By the way there is a SPECIAL TOWN MEETING in both Ayer and Shirley on Saturday 2/5/2011.
Yes or No on one question
Should the towns override to give RSD 750K for a feasibility study.

There is no "special town meeting." There is an election that runs for the day on 2/5 and it is NOT for an override. It is to vote on a $750K loan by the region for a feasibility study, much of which will be reimbursed. It is split between the towns according to the agreement. The loan is taken as it is needed, so it could end up being less. It cannot be more w/out another vote. Two public forums are coming up to get the facts. One in Shirley and one in Ayer. Check the websites for details and ATTEND one if not both!

I was referring to attending the public forums. It may be helpful to attend both if people have a lot of questions.
