Dear Editor: It would be helpful if the moderator knew the correct date of Town Meeting, which starts April 24, and not April 28, as stated in his letter to the editor. [See letters April 21 Issue] While the rest of the letter is reasonable, voters deserve a moderator who at least knows that Town...
To The Editor: On Monday night, Article 9, the proposal to purchase land next to the fire station for the construction of a Senior Center, was voted down. Article 10, a motion to appropriate $400,000 for the purpose of designing a new Senior Center, was approved subject to the Town approving a...
Dear Editor: I wholeheartedly endorse Anna Eliot for reelection to the Groton Board of Selectmen. Anna is a dedicated public servant who loves Groton and cares deeply for the wellbeing of its citizens. She deserves to be reelected. As a member of the Finance Committee, Sustainable Budget...
Dear Editor, We are pleased to enthusiastically support Becky Pine for Selectman. Becky would bring to town governance thoughtful, well-informed and balanced leadership.

The proposal to the Community Preservation Committee is a three...
Dear Editor, My unwavering support of Anna Eliot for re-election to the Groton Board of Selectmen is based on her integrity, reliability on fact-based decisions and a thoughtful, analytical vision for the future of our beloved town.  Anna is not the loud one.  Before quietly taking a stand...
etter to the Editor, I hope that everyone notices that Friends of the Trees has renamed their group “Friends of the Tree Warden”. We feel this most clearly defines our group’s main goal; to assist the town with tree planting. This could not happen without help of the Tree Warden, Tom Delaney,...
Dear Editor: Wow! Did we read that the town just lost $400,000 over the Boynton Meadows fiasco. This is worse than a bad night in Las Vegas. When this project came around, we felt it was a speculative project. That the town should not invest in real estate as they are not in the realty business...
