Support Somero’s amendment
To the editor:
I was very surprised to see Brian Somero’s letter to the editor saying to please join himself and others to vote “no” on article 4, the town budget. My surprise being that this is the same person who got up at deliberative session and made a motion to amend the town budget’s number to the recommended finance advisory number. Mr. Somero’s amendment was passed and approved by a standing count of the registered taxpayers that were in attendance. So I am confused that he and others want to vote against the amendment that he was the author of and got approved.
I stood in support of Mr. Somero’s amendment during that meeting and am a little concerned that he is now voting against his own amendment that a majority of taxpayers supported. So with this in mind, I am in full support of Mr. Somero’s amendment and will vote yes on article 4 as approved at deliberative session by the taxpayers.
