Two Selectman Candidates refuse to partisapate

The Selectman candidates Q&A event at our new beautiful library planned for this Sunday will have to be canceled. Only one member, Deb Butler said she would be there. Mr. Monzon and Mr. Sisitky have not even sent a note to say they wouldn't attend. This type of party elitism from an incumbent is expected, after all, he's been around so long now, moss grows under his feet. But what possible purpose does Mr. Monzon ducking out of a chance to be in front of the voters? Could it be that both are afraid to face Ms. Butler in a free and open public debate? Do they both feel sure that their party loyalists will support them no matter what? We.. the voters know little about 2 of the candidates and will not get the chance to ask any of them any questions before the elections.

So I ask the readers here.. will changing our form of government eliminate the party arrogance of the incumbents and mandate that candidates face the voters in public?

Sounds like these selectman candidates don't think they have to answer to the residents. Wonder what ever gave them that idea??

As the previous comment states, perhaps we should ask Selectmen candidates that question at the candidates forum next Wednesday. Will the public be allowed to ask questions of candidates? If not, I think we should ask Ms. Hall to ask the two candidates for Selectman what their reason was for not doing an open forum where residents would be allowed to ask questions. Could be an interesting response. I would also like to see someone ask them what they think they bring to the table as a qualification that the other two candidates don't bring.

There is no need for more than one debate. We all know what they are all going to say anyway. Sisitsky is a known entity, and he pulls Cesear's strings, and Butler is a loose cannon. What else does anyone need to know?

A tired old fart, a puppet and a loose cannon. Any wonder why residents look for a mayor?
