What you can do for your town

To The Editor
On Saturday, May 19 Lunenburg decides whether or not to give the final approval of the override. This is a defining question that holds a lot more than being just a decision about taxes: it is a question of what kind of town we want and expect to live in!
Is it a town where we provide our citizens with the level of culture, education, protection and services that we have all come to want and expect?
Or is it a town with reduced levels of town services, slashed elderly services, ignored road maintenance, lost library accreditation (and state funding), a faltering education system, and last but not least, diminished police and fire protection?
Beware of negative propaganda, nay-sayers and prophets of doom – go to the ballots on Saturday and do what you know, deep down in your heart is right: vote YES on the override question.
For Saturday, I want to paraphrase what President Kennedy once said: Ask not what your town can do for you… ask what you can do for your town! We all live here, we all deserve these services, and we all need your “yes” vote!
