Town doesn’t need an administrator
To the editor:
As most people know, I do not like the idea of either a town manager or an administrator and here is why: They are unelected persons who are doing the job of a mayor.
So unless your town is on the verge of becoming a small city, three smart selectmen should be more than sufficient; especially if they have smart, dependable department heads — something I think Rindge is lucky to have at the present time.
There’s another problem with town managers or administrators. Selectmen and mayors can be voted out of office, town managers and administrators cannot, for fear of a lawsuit. I don’t know why our administrator left. To be honest, I don’t really think it matters.
As a wise old Podunkian once said, “Never look a gift horse in the mouth, just be happy.”
