Standing firm on board

Standing firm on board In reference to Larry Hill’s recent letter to the paper about Winchester Planning Board.
Is the problem real?
Or is it simply ignoring responsibility to the public in order to promote a personal agenda?
Well let’s talk about it.
First the PA system in the Winchester Town Hall works just the way it should. All that people have to do is use the mikes properly. That means talking directly into them.
Now to a member of the planning board, who was appointed, not elected, and made a mistake by not voting the way he was told to because he wasn’t paying attention, and wanted a do over: If you’re not going to listen and ask questions, why be on the board?
Do you think of yourself as a rubber stamp for those with certain interests? You also can’t abstain from the vote when you think the fix is in and your vote isn’t needed.
You also have to listen to and understand, the motions being made to be sure you say yes or no at the right time to please your handlers.
Here’s a radical idea: If you don’t know what you’re voting on, don’t vote.
Now for the fun stuff. While I was in a restaurant in Keene, across the bar from me a group of people were talking and laughing when one person asked a businessman how it was going with the planning board in Winchester, and I heard him say, ”Those people in Winchester can be bought off with a bag of groceries.”
At the time, all I could think of was “why would someone who put the fix in brag about it while he was drinking?”
Be assured, some of us members can’t be bought off at any price.

I am surprised someone sitting near you Brian, who not know who you are. You are either loved or hated throughout all of Winchester . You areI either onloved every boardfew or oppose the boards. I don't even live around here and have heard about you. I wonder if the guy was just testing to see if you would report it. Seems suspicious!

Brian maybe something else in your mind, but he is mad as HELL and made of brass.
