There have been letters drafted by some citizens that go even further, suggesting a ban on public office for “any officer of a political party or a person holding a top position in an adjoining municipality”. This is absurd and unlawful. If this arbitrary standard were adopted, it would have precluded Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Bill Clinton from rising to the office of President of the United States.
Our community deserves the best representation on the town board. Let’s make this town board seat open to all candidates interested in serving our community.
