One phrase is that particularly bothers me about the higher taxes: “a necessary sacrifice.”   Let’s do some math. The average household income in Groton is...
An updated Town Manager’s budget is still using a $5.5M override phased-in over three years. There are slightly different annual override spending steps to get to the $5.5M because of some changed state and school factors since the original budget was published.     How the numbers are presented...

I am writing to urge Groton voters to help reelect Kathleen (Kathy) Lynch for Republican State Committeewoman in her newly-drawn Worcester and Middlesex district, which includes my hometown of Groton.    State committee members are elected to establish the policies and platform of the Massachusetts...
