I think a gentle push back on the latest member was in order.
I just read the news and feel the members of the board did the right thing. It was a misstep to appoint the latest member. What were the Selectmen thinking? There will be significant issues moving forward on the St Mikes campus and they have to do with water & sewer. The line going past the campus is a pressure line and will not be a simple tap . It could require a new pumping station or some other significant engineering. Since the St Mikes hearings were conducted without a hint of impropriety this could possibly introduce some. It is most unfortunate that the Selectmen did not think harder on this appointment. I also feel that there are many involved that could have “counseled” on the timing and merits of seeking the open slot.
