This is where most elected to office fail, the follow up. I've expressed concerns, and I've been told that a follow up would be done, and have had to wait longer than a year, and then again asked for more time. For some, I am still waiting two years out.
If Mary wants to succeed, she is starting off in the right direction, and as long as she doesn't follow the lead of others that fail with the follow through, and resolution parts, she will do fine. Her head appears to be in the right place.
Of course, I have thought the very same thing about others in the beginning of their service to the town as well, and have been disappointed. Disappointment, and politics seem to go hand in hand a good deal of the time. I hope that every once in a while there would be one time that it wouldn't, and that the disappointment would be replaced by excitement, and hope.
"...Something new…. Just getting started. A Meet the Selectman session will be at The Sturbridge Coffee House from 9: 30 to 10:30 on Tuesday morning, the 10th of May. Another will be Saturday morning, the 12th of May, same place, same time. Since I am the newest member on the BOS I bought this forward as an informal way to talk with people. All information will be taken back to a future BOS Meeting. There will never be a quorum, no long discussions or problem solving, as only a maximum of two selectman will be there every time. This is a simple, basic effort to reach out and hear some concerns.
