To the editor:
I only have a few brief observations. For now.
So, Malcolm Martin, of Otis Mtn., is worried about who first called the Ti Federal Credit Union regarding the banks new Court St. location. Actually Supervisor Merrihew had been working with the Credit Union for 2-3 years trying to find the best location in Elizabethtown. As with Kinneys, its a bit more complicated than a phone call. Since Malcolm Martin and family walked away from the deal with a quarter of a million dollars, for a very old historical house that was torn down before the sun set, Im not sure why hed be worried at all.
Yes, Yes, Malcolm, I know. Im Noel Merrihews brother-in-law, and a town councilman, and whatever. Nobody in this town would have guessed that.
So, Penelope Mace, the wife of Essex County Democratic Commissioner David Mace, has challenged the Republican and Independent petitions of Etown Supervisor Merrihew. Shes quoted as saying its a matter of wanting things to be done properly. Yet, she is only challenging Merrihews petitions and did so two days before the petitions were even turned in. OOK.
I find it rather disingenuous for the Democratic leadership to pretend that they are not openly supporting and promoting Democrat/Republican candidate, Joe Martin, when by all appearances, they are doing exactly that.
The greater question would be, why?
Observing can be interesting and entertaining.
