On Fire Department, selectmen are acting against wishes of the town

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Selectmen are elected to run the town according to the wishes of the people.

When the selectmen in Gilmanton attempted to control the Fire Department they were going against the wishes of the people. After much discussion it was clear that the people had to speak by placing a warrant article on the ballot to be sure their wishes were known.

Still, the selectmen were not listening and found it necessary to write letters to the newspapers and post signs trying to explain themselves and asking for support from the voters. It's simple — the voters don't support the selectmen. The selectmen are supposed to support and do the will of the voters. The selectmen have it backwards.
