Support candidate Abigail Arnold
To the Editor:
What a pity that the beautiful, peaceful town of Francestown is being torn apart by angry citizens and divisive groups. We have been governed for many years now by selectmen who have devoted their time, their energy, and their expertise, as well as their concern and interest. Many of us are grateful for all that they have done to fulfill the needs of our town. The value of differences of opinion has not been viewed by some as the core of a democratic society, to be discussed in a civil, perhaps even collegial, manner. Rather, differences have created animosity, distorted responses to decisions and problems that could easily have been resolved in an acceptable, cordial manner. And the hurt that has arisen has left a remarkably capable leader wondering how to respond to the attack.
Let us look once more at one of our present leaders, Abigail Arnold, and recognize the great accomplishments she has wrought for this lovely town. Thank you, Abigail. I hope my fellow citizens join me in supporting your candidacy and electing you for a second term.
