Unfortunately the Gazette doesn’t tend to put my column online these days – I think because they want to hold some content back to give people a reason to buy the print edition – don’t really know. Here are the questions but you’ll have to part with 50 cents to see the answers:
- Please comment on an issue that was addressed by the Board of Selectman in the last three years and your thoughts on the solution or status.
- Please discuss an important issue that is currently facing the town.
- Thinking ten or twenty years from now – are there things we should be doing in the longer term
- The Community Preservation Act was adopted by Middleboro a few years ago. It raises money than can only be used for certain things – open space preservations, historic preservation, recreation, and housing. Please share your thoughts on the CPA.
The first three questions have the past – present – future motif. They were meant to be very general with the hope that the candidate’s answer might say something about what they thought was important.
The last question – about CPA – sticks out like a sore thumb … what’s up with that? Simple – CPA is important to me. A candidate’s position on CPA would be a very significant factor in whether I would support a candidate.
I’ve been extremely busy at work for a number of months now with no end in sight – but I’m hoping to get back to updating this site more regularly.
