To The Daily Sun,
After I read an op-ed piece in the Union Leader written by publisher Joe McQuaid referencing the conduct of our Alton elected officials at a February selectmen's meeting, I am speaking out.
In watching the video clip of the public input session by Alton resident, Jeffrey Clay, I was appalled and embarrassed at the manner in which the selectmen handled the situation. Mr. Clay had every right to speak his piece, regardless of whether you liked his remarks or not. Cooler heads should have prevailed in letting Mr. Clay have the floor for the allotted five minutes. To have called on the Alton police to arrest Mr. Clay was more outrageous than anything Mr. Clay said. Grow a thicker skin or get out of the game!
It is time to make some changes to this board at next week's election. I'll be voting for Phil Whittmann and hope others will as well.
Carol A. Chamberlain
