Letter to the editor: Proud of Northborough's Selectmen

To the Editor:

I winced when I read the headline for the article in the 6/14/13 issue of the Community Advocate about National Grid having illegal fuel storage.? Since National Grid is a big corporation there was an opportunity for the Selectmen to overdramatize the situation and create problems where there were none for publicity's sake (tell me you’ve never seen that done before in other places!)? Instead, based on the comments in the article, our leadership took an appropriately stern
stance on the issue, particularly around public safety, but nevertheless voted for the permit to be granted.? In my view this is an excellent example of municipal leadership looking out for the best interests of all of its citizens – both resident and corporate.? I’m proud that our town is able and willing to be supportive of companies – even large ones – in a day and age when it's fun to despise big business.
