Vote "no" on everything
To the Editor:
It's hard to believe the Rumford Selectboard and the Finance Committee didn't get the message from the voters in the first two votes, and raised the budgetary amounts for the vote on Aug. 27.
What is this? A war against the very people they swore to represent?
On the second try, many folks voted the lower of the budget recommendations on most articles, many voted no on everything, and then they raise the budget recommendations? It's an insult.
C'mon, cut where it matters -- town employees and their costly benefit packages rather than trash and garbage pickup and streetlight cuts.
The good old days are gone for our town and everybody seems to notice except the town fathers. They are not working to make things better for us, but to protect those overpaid employees.
Vote "no" on everything on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
