from Jeff Gordon
I hope that everyone is doing well.
Bill, I appreciate your leadership efforts on the WRTC Platform. I enjoyed working with you and others on developing the Platform. I was involved with the WRTC Platform 2 years prior. I would not have put my time and effort into the WRTC Platform if I didn’t believe in what was written. My own public actions as a member of the PZC (and prior to that, as a member of the MFATF) are consistent with what I have said I would do: work with others as a team (regardless of their political affiliations), act independently when neded, think carefully, be available to people when they ask questions or address concerns, give honest answers, behave ethically, and do what I think is best for our community. I do know that others with whom I have worked and do now work have conducted themselves the same way. I cannot speak for everyone in public office and it is not my place to do that.
John and Becki, thank you for keeping the Cafe going. Given some of the prior problematic posts by certain people, I am glad to see that some time ago you posted “rules of engagement” that people are expected to follow.
Kevin, thanks for your service on the BOE.
Ken, thank you for reminding people about the MFATF recommendations. I have not forgotten them and do bring them up when applicable in the work I do on the PZC or in other venues. Some of the recommendatiosn have been followed up on. It would be good to remind our hard working Selectmen about the MFATF. Recently, when the PZC had the land use fee ordninance updated (it hadn’t been updated in ~17 years), that was part of following through on one of the MFATF recommendations. I see the BOS expressed interest in looking at the other ordninaces and fee schedules in town to keep them current. Read the rest of this entry »
