Letter: Not enough information to make informed decision


To the editor,

In reply to the letter “Elected leaders have duty to be informed about, decide on issues” (Citizen’s News, Oct. 10, 2019), while Mr. Grace attributed failing to vote to me, he failed to get his facts correct. I did vote that evening and I voted to abstain because there was not enough information provided to make an informed decision. For example, regarding the bond proceeds, I want to know specifically how the money will be spent, rather than just “improvements as are determined by the town engineer.” I do not have blind faith that this means the proceeds will be spent in the best interest of the town as a whole.

I voted responsibly by abstaining.
