Letters To The Editor: March 23, 2023
As I read the latest comments by our town leaders relative to the existing Chatham Senior Center, it’s becoming clear to me that we need to question their ability to make cogent decisions which are in the best interest of those of us who reside here. In a clear attempt to manipulate public opinion of the previously failed new COA initiative, they are attempting to dress up the acceptability of the project by appealing to those of us who believe affordable housing is the most important problem we currently need to address by suggesting that using the old property for housing will make a meaningful impact. I hardly think asking voters to approve the spending $10.6 million-plus for a "nice but not critical to have” facility is in their term a “win-win” — well maybe it is for the 1610 property owner, who will get the donation tax benefit. I’ve yet to hear that our “leaders” have suggested or even tried to convince the1610 property donor to consider donating the land for the much needed construction of affordable housing units. I have no confidence that our current leadership has what it takes to impact the crisis at hand without fiscally compromising our future.
