To The Daily Sun,
Residents of Meredith, thank you to all of you who came to the polls and voted for me in my first attempt running for public office. And thank you to all of the others that came and voted for their candidate of choice, and especially to the seven other candidates trying to fill the two seats available on the Selectboard. All of you showed great professionalism, were very polite and open minded and willing to talk amongst us all about the issues that you felt needed to be brought forward to the board and showing great interest in the future of Meredith.
I am sorry that we cannot sit on the board together. Our individual knowledge, experiences and our abilities cover a wide wealth of resources that collectively could accomplish a lot of good for our town moving forward. Again thank you, you all have taught me a lot in a short period of time.
To you who live here and have registered, approximately 4,700 of you, only less than 1,000 took the time to participate in our future. What to hell are you thinking? Without your support or interest, this town will never be what it could be, it will never get better, we will slowly price ourself out of being able to live here.
If you are not supportive or don't care about Meredith, why the hell don't you just leave, move out, go to another town and help drag them down and backwards. I'm so glad my parents and grandparents have passed so that they will not see what is slowly coming to our town.
P.S. Never let me hear you non-participants complain why or how things are going. You really don't want to hear my answer to you!
David Lund Bennett, Sr.
