To the editor:
So here we go once again!
Shame on you Mr. Jacques for your comment — and shame on you, Ms. Wilkinson, for addressing it with the town lawyer.
What happened to good old communication? Do we need such vengeance against such nonsense? This town appears to be coming apart at the seams and we need to pay much more attention on the bigger issues.
Now that Mr. Jacques has apologized, can't we just go forward? Perhaps this is a valuable lesson for the future of the Board of Selectmen.
Let's give Mr. Jacques another chance as he has much to offer and not vote for a write in. If we all called a lawyer for all the nasty remarks that go around this town we would have to "take a number."
I'm all for equal rights and women making the same pay scale as men, but let's not carry on a "witch hunt" over this issue.
What are we teaching the children from either side of this "catastrophe"? Some residents have been offended at the "dismissal" of certain issues brought up at various town boards. Maybe we need to take a look at how our leaders address many situations. It appears that occasionally it's rather condescending when they don't agree with a resident's request.
Let's not make this town into an "elite circle" for one-minded thinking. I, too, wish that we could acquire the Tool Company with the philanthropists of this town who could bring so much more businesses to thrive in one big building by the sea. There are some residents out there that agree and some that don't.
Don't forget the Shalin Liu was but a dream once and — lo and behold — Rockport is known worldwide as a cultural venue.
