Congradulations to Carol! I hope this sends a message to the remaining board of selectman of how unhappy the people of Easton are with the current administration. Consistent unanimous votes on huge expenditures are not what the good people of Easton want any more. We need physcally conservative members on the board who are willing to question the establishment instead of passing everything that is asked for by the current administrator.

Incumbents: take note. Your current way of doing things will get you ousted. Citizens are unhappy with your lack of discussion and due diligence. They are unhappy that you are more concerned what David Colton thinks of you than what we think of you. I would also like to express my great disappointment in the good people of Easton. Less than 900 votes cast in this race? Shameful! Our apathy is the reason the current selectmen feel they can do whatever they want.

I would like to thank Todd Gornstein for doing an excellent and selfless job for our town. And a big congratulations to Carol! I was happy to see that we had two very motivated and capable candidates for this important position. The turnout was pathetic - 5% of registered voters bothered to show up. When I voted, I walked directly to the table, the booth, and the exit, without seeing another voter. Shame on our town, this was pathetic.
