Letter: Faris Thanks Supporters
The annual town election was Tuesday.
To the Editor:
I wish to thank all 430 voters that voted for me for selectman. Particularly, I am indebted to Vinnie Borkowsky and many other supporters who stood out in the cold to send a message to our voters, or wrote letters of support. We were able to connect with senior citizens, young families and people who are having trouble making ends meet in this terrible economy. They are the ones most impacted by the overspending in progress.
I believe our message has been heard. While we are a minority right now, I think the numbers will grow and become louder. As I have stated, we must energize all 11,000 voters to not just leave town and give in to a small minority but stay and join our effort. We will eventually succeed in coming years as people realize the extent of overspending.
Remember, town meeting is March 16 (Saturday) and we need to oppose the $7.3M town hall renovations. So, attend town meeting and vote.
I would like to congratulate Tim and Leigh on retaining their selectman's seats. They are beginning to realize that we are a group that won't go away.
