To the Editor:      Crickets. Crickets is what I heard in response to a letter I sent in June to the BoS regarding the controversial and town-dividing “All are Welcome” markers voted on at the spring Town Meeting.    My letter proposed a compromise.   Markers yes, because that is what Town Meeting...
Dear Editor:       I’d like to announce that I am running for State Representative in 2018 as an independent with no party affiliation.    My areas of interest are resolving and reacting responsibly to the opioid epidemic and using some structured open government mechanisms to achieve better...

To the Editor,      I read with interest Mr. Gosselin’s recently published account of last spring’s town meeting regarding Article 17 and the “All Are Welcome” markers.
