To The Daily Sun,
At the Bristol selectman's meeting on January 9, long time "Tax and Spend" Selectman Joe Denning attempted to "bully" first term Selectperson Betsy Schneider. It seems, in his opinion, she wasn't whole-heartedly promoting Joe's view that Bristol needs to aggressively increase spending.
To her great credit, Selectperson Schneider cited the law to Mr. Denning, stating she served "ex-officio" on the Budget Committee. Selectperson Schneider further stated she represented the taxpayers of Bristol and would not be a "puppet" of the Selectboard. This statement garnered applause from the citizens attending the meeting.
Bravo Selectboard member Schneider!
