This is in response to Shirley Gadway’s recent letters to the editors (North Countryman and Press-Republican).
The “Outsider” she is referring to, is my husband. While he wasn’t born and raised in Mooers, he is far from an “Outsider.” You could call him a resident of Mooers. You could also call him a taxpayer, a small business owner, a little league sponsor, and a strong supporter of local businesses. He has invested time and money in Mooers.
I remember when my husband and I purchased land in Mooers several years ago. Our intent was to move our family to the area, because we both love it here. We have lots of family and friends in Mooers and the surrounding area. This is where I grew up.
The way my husband has been treated by certain Mooers town officials, including Shirley Gadway, Carol Payne, and Rudy Miller, is shameful and embarrassing. I realize they are upset at Mr. Miller’s recent loss of his position as Town Supervisor. Ms. Gadway started her letters to the editor by requesting the “residents of Mooers wake up before it’s too late.” Perhaps they already have.
