Dear Neighbors, On Tuesday, May 16th we can bring change to the Board of Selectmen. It is a rare sight to see three new candidates asking for a seat at the table, but a great opportunity for our town. I have been asked throughout the campaign season to comment on who might give Groton the best...
To The Editor, The day after the first Town Meeting last week, I spoke with Kathy Schlep, COA’s director. I asked how she was feeling about the defeat of the article for the land purchase on Farmers’ Row. Kathy’s response: “My role is to provide services and to ensure that programs and services...
Dear Editor, I know I can’t be the only one to catch the disparate imagery featured in last week’s Slim Edition: An article about a narrowly passing TM item describing the sermonette given about right-doing, literally back to back with a mean-spirited, thinly-veiled political-bashing critique. So...
To the Editor: I am writing today to urge the citizens of Groton to elect Brooks Lyman to the Selectman’s office. Brooks has been a fixture in the town’s governance for years, serving well on many boards in town, currently as the Chair of the Groton Housing Authority and as Chair of the Groton...
Dear Fellow Voters, I would like to endorse the candidacy of Becky Pine for Selectman.  I have known Becky for many years, primarily in my role as Selectman.  There are few in town who approach me as thoughtfully as does Becky on issues in which they are interested or would like to provide input. ...

To The Editor, I have had the good fortune, and the challenging task, of working with, and sometimes against, Alison Manugian over the last few years.  No matter which side of an issue we were on, I found Alison to be a frank, passionate, reasonable, honest and capable advocate for her cause. ...
I enthusiastically support Becky Pine for Selectman.  So much is changing in Groton, including the building of the Groton Inn and Indian Hill Music.  I believe that Becky will help us to look at the big picture as we grow and change over the next several years.  She will help the Selectmen create a...
To The Editor, I want to clarify comments I made at the first session of Town Meeting, as I know I did not express myself clearly. I am strongly in favor of providing the much needed additional space required to meet the needs of our growing Senior population, and of keeping the Senior Center at...
To the Editor: I write to endorse Becky Pine’s candidacy for Groton Selectman. Knowing Becky for more than 20 years both personally and professionally, I have found her to be one of those few individuals who can keep the big picture in mind while attending the various details needed to make things...
