One supervisor does it all? |

One supervisor does it all?

Yes, I still have a lot of questions, but as yet I have very few real answers.

I am, though, rather pleased that the recent election did not determine who is to be our supervisor here in District 4. This will give us more time to consider all the angles.

I note we have a conflict of opinions, with one side stating that those who oppose NH 2020 are small landowners and certainly not developers. I can relate to that.

Then we hear another opinion that those who are against NH 2020 are large landowners and big business. I can’t relate to that.

I also cannot relate to another opinion about the good ol’ boys who believe “What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine.” This statement sounds more like those who are pushing NH 2020.

My philosophy is more like “What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is yours,” and each of us should be allowed to decide what to do with our own property, within the reasonable rules.

While I am questioning, I will ask who should get credit for the benefits, such as budget reserves, health care, fire safety and senior services. I have read that they are all attributable to one supervisor. Could this be true? If so, why do we need more than one?
