Town Meeting a 'head-scratcher'

The Andover Townsman

---- — Editor, Townsman:

I was very impressed with Bob Landry at Town Meeting. The biggest head-scratcher was his not being allowed to use quotes by anyone not in attendance. Moderator Sheila Doherty then immediately allowed Town Counsel Tom Urbelis’ reading, from an attorney not in attendance.

More eyes need to be on these Town Meetings as the proceedings are always curious, to say the least.

Selectmen rail against townspeople for not attending all meetings leading up to Town Meeting. But these people work and have family and other obligations. We count on our selectmen to serve our best financial interests. It’s not happening.
