I want to commend Richard Casavecchia’s column in the Dec.21 Express. I would hope all councilmembers would reach out to constituents and gain a better understanding of situations. It takes time and effort. I want to encourage Richard to act as he has spoken and encourage those on the council with him to do the same. I believe that some past and ongoing councilmembers may be surprised, chagrined or shocked by what they have not bothered to follow up on, should they ever find out. Representing all constituents can only be achieved if people listen and really hear what others are saying. Communication is a two-way street — In this day and age, we need to all work hard to make it happen both ways.
Thank you for supporting columns that reflect our town values
