How is it possible that the board keeps trying to “sell” the town on development deals and projects that cost considerable funds invested upfront, with no assurances of success other than to tout the mantra that development will keep our taxes down? Anyone who has ever looked at the development model knows that the math does not work.
At the end of the day, shouldn’t the Board of Selectmen represent us and work on our behalf rather than be dictatorial? We have a right to see and hear all sides of the issues, rather than to have projects presented as fait accompli. Does the Board of Selectmen really represent us? Really?
