To The Editor:
I am incredulous that our select board actually accepted an "anonymous" cash payment/bribe that will clearly have a direct impact on an important public policy question.
Instead of holding a revote on the town hall we should hold a recall vote of our select board.
Waitsfield may have lots of defunct and closed businesses along Main Street, but we are now clearly a town that is "For Sale."
I am sure that some folks around town will put this bribe in the same category as the "federal grant money" and say that we shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.
I would point out the if the people of Troy had looked over the horse that the Greeks delivered to their doorstep more carefully there might still be a Troy.
My only hope is that the shadowy, phantom "benefactor" who doesn't appear to have the backbone to stand up for their convictions in public at least had the historical awareness to deliver the money to the select board in a brown paper bag, befitting a Chicago ward boss of old.
