To The Editor:
Everything is working well in Rochester. How can I tell? There are openings for selectmen, library trustees, members of the school board, auditors and membership on several other boards and commissions. And, to date, there are no publicly declared candidates.
What's that tell me? Everyone is so happy with the way the town and school are managed that they're happy to leave the duties up to someone else. No worries about budgets. No worries about policies. No worries about grants. No worries about the future. No worries about what we're leaving for our kids and grandkids.
Seriously folks, there's work to be done and you have to do it. Long hours, no benefits, no perks other than the satisfaction of knowing you can do something for your town.
Rochester is a wonderful town full of hard-working, creative, bright people of all ages. Please consider contributing some time to keep it that way.
