To The Daily Sun,
Candidates' night in Sanbornton was last week, but it has taken me this long to get over it. Many people who attended were very rude to some of the candidates who are only trying their best to help us live within our means.
From what I understood, the Budget Committee does not have much power, much less to "destroy" the library by not giving them thousands more dollars every year. I love our library, and appreciate the attendants there, but why does it need so much more money all the time? Can't they cut back some? Everyone who spoke just wanted more money for all their departments. It's up to the selectmen and Budget Committee to put a limit on all the I-wants.
For that reason, I would like to see more conservatives on our Budget Committee, to stop the incessant spending. Roger Grey has been doing his best to point out unnecessary spending, and as he said in his letter to the Sun, his job is "to provide taxpayers with sufficient knowledge that they might be able to vote intelligently on certain" items. He is able to dig up items that we surely should be informed about, and he lets us know what they are, before town meeting. That's transparency.
I also believe that Bill Whalen will be able to help Roger keep the spending down. Sanbornton, we have many more needs, and should take care of them before the wants.
