To do what is right


I would like to comment about the March 17 Letter to the Editor from Mr. Bill Verrette.

I would like to start of by saying, “Spot on.” Your consolidation idea for the school districts should run hand in hand with the consolidation of local governments. The reason for this would be being able to provide the same or better services to the communities with substantial savings. Those resources can then be used for infrastructure, equipment, lowering taxes, and encouraging more industry to the area.

Mr. Verrette, you, being a successful businessman, gives weight to the concept of consolidation. I would like to thank you for publicly speaking your mind. We need more leaders like you to do what is right for our communities.
