I would like to thank the Castleton voters for their support on Election Day and their support during the last three years while serving on the Select Board. While the outcome was not what I had hoped, I am still concerned about the future of Castleton and will continue to be an active participant in town meetings and Select Board meetings.
I feel my voice reflects many of us who have lived in the town for many years, have raised our families here and want to remain here. Many of us are retirees living on fixed incomes and I am continuing to be concerned about special interest groups in the town whose main agenda only benefits a few.
Castleton is very diversified with its neighborhoods (Main Street, the Lake, Hydeville, the College) but we are still one town and need to come together and proceed with economically sound decisions. It is everyone’s right to be heard, to know where their tax money is going and to question the future of the town.
I remain committed to the town that I love and will continue to actively participate and question town activities. I hope that everyone uses their right to speak up and not be bowled over by the decisions of a few who clearly have personal agendas and wish to promote themselves and their businesses using town positions.
