Editorial: A fresh start for Milton

So to those who clucked at Kerr on Sunday: You know, she just might be on to something.

We here at The Spotlight hope the new guard in Milton resolve this New Year's to make a clean break with some of the practices of yesteryear. These certainly include closed or obstructionist administration of government, as our reporters will attest to, and a financial planning system that is so void of foresight the town nearly wiped out all its savings in a single year (and still hit residents with a tax hike).

It's certainly easy to dwell on past mistakes at the start of a new year — it's what we've done in this editorial — but it's truly better and more productive to look ahead to what's to come, and how to make it great. We hope leaders in the Town of Milton can do just that.
