Letter to the editor 3, Feb. 2, 2017
Not dead yet
Contrary to the article that appeared in the January 19 Your Local Journal regarding efforts to purchase Sandy Beach being ‘dead in the water,’ I am still 100 per cent committed to stopping this development and keeping this land as a nature preserve and conservation area for everyone to enjoy today and forever. The mayor and council refuse to acknowledge that my petition has almost 400 signatures from residents of Hudson and are choosing to ignore it until we reach 500.
I think this is unfair and undemocratic and shows just how much they care about Sandy Beach and the will of the people. I am asking everyone who signed to please ask everyone you can think of who is a resident of Hudson and agrees with saving Sandy Beach to the sign the petition at www.change.org/p/achat-sandy-beach-purchase as soon as possible.
Also, please attend the February 6 council meeting and ask the mayor and council why they didn’t respond to my letter and why they think that just over 200 peoples’ ‘comments’ are enough to shape the town for the next 150 years but almost 400 signatures can be ignored?
Also, please attend the upcoming budget meeting Monday, February 6, 7 p.m., and Sandy Beach information session Thursday, February 16, 7 p.m. at the Community Centre, and make your voices heard.
