Newlands should retain seat as mayor

By Joy Lester | Mar 01, 2013

In the “best little town in the universe,” in this quiet sleepy village, something is amiss!

Yes, dear residents, because under the watchful eyes of those who care, those who want “transparency” (whatever that means!) and the “Council who kept the Mayor on his toes,” things went awry. They have been watching the wrong persons, for the wrong reasons and for the wrong moral and ethical strengths.

Is it not a shame that those who worked so very diligently got no thanks in return for setting this town on a good financial path once again? That other progress was achieved, but drowned out by rude mutterings and outbursts during town meetings? Is it right that campaign signs were wrongly placed, some without permission, and others removed in the dead of night? That town meetings run until late at night due to the fact that some just want to hear themselves talk? And talk, and talk. I am speaking of those who have never stepped into Town Hall to offer help or give advice in a quiet, productive manner, but grandstand at the slightest opportunity.

There is something critically wrong here. We need good, old-fashioned common sense from those of us who really understand what’s going on to help Cliff Newlands retain his position as mayor of Milton.

My husband and I wish Milton all the best no matter the election outcome. But we truly hope Cliff Newlands is re-elected!
