Vote against Shrewsbury override – Pohl

To the Editor:

Regarding the Proposition? 2-1/2 override in Shrewsbury, an open letter to the town of Shrewsbury and the political group called “Community Supporters for Shrewsbury. ”

While I agree that the town has deep financial problems, I need to ask myself, WHY( ?), and how we got here. I am not a follower of politics, nor a financial expert, but it occurs to me that all this is the result of bad planning.

When I say “bad planning,” I's thinking of the new library, the high school built in the middle of nowhere (that resembles a 5 star Hilton) and a huge fire truck that needed a new building.

All of those were “special interest groups” without regard to basic town needs.

I am going to be voting “NO”‘ on Proposition? 2-1/2, not because the kids don’t need updated school books, but because the town fathers need to be responsible for bad planning, and a “no” vote would put them into a corner for their actions.

The town needs to hire an independent, responsible, financial adviser, and trade that fire engine for school books.
