This is so much sour grapes. I am not sure why he should be on the Finance Committee indefinitely. I agree with Gil that the FinCom needs diversity and it should be renew with fresh talent routinely. It has sorely lack that diversity and renewal for over a decade. The Town Moderator needs to balance the representation so that all the residents of Billerica are fairly represented. Mike is not entitled to serve indefinitely on a committee -- especially since there seems to be a waiting list of very talented people that would like to serve on it. If his motivations are truly altruistic and he really wishes to serve the people and the Town there are lots of committees and boards that have positions unfilled that could use his help. He is not the only one that has served on the FinCom that has not been selected for additional terms. He has been on the committee for 4 or 5 years and positioned himself within the Town to run for Town Moderator. His complaints and claims are a telling indicator of his character. It seems to me that he is the one playing politics.
