The People of Amherst Must Be Diligent About Their Government

Nov. 20, 2019

The people of Amherst have heard much about Westwood and other developments happening in our town, but there are serious problems here. The problems have to do with the internal running of the departments which make up our town.  We need to start looking into each department and correct the way they are working. The most important departments are our Wastewater Treatment Plant, followed by our Planning Department and Board.

There is much to be done. The only way a town can run smoothly is if everyone in every department pulls their own weight. A full accounting of each department is crucial

If history has taught us anything it’s that when decay sets in a government, the people pay for it in many different ways.

    The first step is to establish who are all these people actually working for. History has shown us, it is for the special interests with the deepest pockets. The new hires only crowds the room behind closed doors. The taxpayers are pawns in their pursuit of keeping the pockets full of the select few.

    A full accounting may be crucial but won’t happen as long as money is the object for all in those mired in mud and self-interest.
