Council president shows leadership
This letter was sent to Councilman David Long and forwarded to the Press.
We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your courage in making the only decision possible for the highway barn to go forward. We agree that the barn would have been better located at the North End, but we understand your position that the reality is not the ideal. Pockets are too deep for the town to afford a long, drawn out battle and as you say the cost just keeps going up.
Contrary to the Jamestown Press letter writer, we hope you will continue as a strong leader for our town. We admire your courage and common-sense intelligence.
Thank you, David. Here's hoping we will soon see a new highway barn.
Sue and Bill Brayman
