Silber should be chairing BudCom meetings, not dominating th…

To The Daily Sun, Last week my wife and I attended the Gilford Budget Committee's public hearing on the town, water district and school budgets. To say the least, we were dismayed at what occurred. It has always been my understanding that a public hearing is an opportunity for the committee to hear from the public and address their concerns. That, however, is not what took place.
