A colossal waste of time

Dear Editor:

Town folk need to grab and pull back the reins now of our five horse select board team and yell "Whoa, back, Whoa! We have to apply the wheel brake and stop the team and the town’s wagon, 'fore our team wastes more town treasure by continuing to fight the state DOT for a few parking spots and an old building.

The cards are stacked against us here and the handwriting is on the wall with the governor now inserting himself into this quagmire. Anyone can plainly see, and even our attorneys say so — It's not a good idea to take money from the person suing us to continue to litigate.

This is a colossal waste of time and energy for a few parking spots and an old building. 

The select board now wants a town wide meeting to vote on taking money from the person suing us to keep the fight going.

It's like Alice and Wonderland chasing a rabbit around, and around a tree, very hard to catch.

Times are changing. We must choose our battles as a town and this isn't one of them.

Thanks, and a tip of the hat.

Bryan Buck
