A good neighbor


To The Editor:

For the past six weeks, I have read very derogatory comments made about Dick Kingsbury and Kingsbury Construction Co. The issue of the quarry in Rochester has caused some Rochester residents to make inflammatory statements about a very reputable company and very generous individuals.

Dick and Laura have been very generous to the needs of the young boys and girls of the Mad River Valley. For individuals to make malicious statements just because they are not getting their way is a cheap shot. To make a statement that his company will not conform to all conditions is just crying wolf.

To ask the public not to trust Kingsbury Construction is just sour grapes. This whole scenario sounds like "not in my backyard." This man has been in business for more than 35 years; that alone is a tribute to his integrity. I have known Dick personally for 10 years and I have used his company to do work for myself and at the Couples Club Recreation Field; the job was always better than promised. Dick's dedication to his company and the community is what makes him a good neighbor.
