The 60+ volunteers that belong to the CERT team, MRC, Shelter Staff and Emergency Management Committee work in the best interest of the residents of the Town of Grafton. Most of our work is behind the scenes, we don't have emergency vehicles or a payroll. Our goal is to respond, when needed and any an all emergencies whether it's a flood, tornado, ice storm, snow storm, hurricane or major power outage you can count on the volunteers of Grafton's Emergency Management Agency. The CERT Team works at events in Town like the road race and Christmas on the Common. The MRC provides medical services like flu clinics and blood pressure clinics. The Committee works on a variety of issues that include the proposed propane facility and other Town safety issues. If you would like to volunteer please contact me. I am very proud of the Grafton Emergencies Services and you should be too. They are there when youneed them.

Town meeting is a business meeting not a political venue. Politics are not discussed at this meeting. My directions concerning candidates whether local or state on signs and locations have not changed since I have been moderator. This is an unusual situation because the election is after the Town Meeting. As I have said we will focus on the business of the Town and not politics. You are more than welcome to greet people and hold signs 150' from the entrance to the auditorium. I am not limiting free speech, I am just trying to do the business of the Town. If you would like to discuss this please call me.

The Town is flush with cash. So it makes sense to purchase one of the last remaining pieces of industrial land to put a soccer field on it. Why would we want a business in town to expand and pay more taxes. Thats silly. Instead we can take land off the tax rolls and have everybody else make up the difference. What are you thinking?

I suggest that you check into my committee appointments. You will find that I try to create a balance in all of the committees that I appoint. Please check my most recent appointments to the Library Building Committee. I appointed Brook Padgett. And I know that he doesn't share my opinions View Comment
