I was told in a public meeting broadcast on Channel 22 by Russ Dean that he only had lunch with Paul. Many people watching were struck by how quickly Joe Pace spoke up to defend the “lunch”. I contend that that there are and have been substantive meetings regarding this issue. I for one will not be mollified by Selectmen saying in effect, move along folks nothing to see here, move along. This is a grab with only developers benefiting. If citizens do not become involved in this debate they will move forward. I need more citizens to weigh in on this issue. This agenda item is alot more than a casual lunch discussion. Perhaps a reader could attend the meeting in Stratham and post their impressions here on The Town Crier? I do not plan on attending a meeting in Stratham
