I agree that the flyer was in poor taste. It also failed to identify the author or who had paid for the propaganda.
I found it interesting that the Republicans seemed to be complaining about the new subdivision regulations?? These new regulations have helped to bring needed controls to Woodstock development- and the initiative behind the new regulations was to promote Woodstock’s rural character and open space. SO- ONE CAN ONLY ASSUME THE REPUBLICANS DO NOT SUPPORT OPEN SPACE AND OUR RURAL CHARACTER- BECAUSE WITHOUT STRICT, CLEAR REGULATIONS- POOR DEVELOPMENT WILL OCCUR!
I would also like to make a comment regarding Joe Breen. He has been criticized for poor behavior, poor choices regarding educational initiatives, blamed for initiating a law suit between PZC & Zoning Board of Appeals-I don’t have direct first hand knowledge of all these issues, but certainly have found different versions of same events- which makes me wonder exactly what the truth is? It seems to me that the Republicans and CPS are attempting to use “Breen” as a lightning rod- and blame all the town’s evils on him (I also see people attempting to do the same to “CPS”) – and focused on trying to make it a center point of there campaign.
I listened to the Democrats yesterday discussing PZC- and in particular Joe Breen’s comments. Honestly- I don’t care if he is a “bully, somewhat hot-headed, or anything in between”-none of which I have ever directly witnessed. But what I care about is his knowledge and ability to add value to PZC- and keep Woodstock’s rural character in place- and on that front- Breen truly DOES SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST in Woodstock. I don’t want a “push-over, nice guy”- letting developers walk all over the PZC board.
The Democratic candidates for PZC were ALL outstanding and highly qualified- that was obvious. We do NOT want to return to the “laissez faire” , loose rules, anything goes, “good ole’ boy” Republican platform. Vote DEMOCRATIC PZC-BARTOLOMEI, SWALE & BREEN Alt- Dr. DAY and since we must let some Republicans serve- my recommendations are DR. GORDON, D. YOUNG & Alt. S. SPAULDING.
Let’s keep Woodstock moving forward!
