Dear members of the Amherst Select Board,
Thank you for the opportunity to weigh in on a conversation that needs to happen with members of our community.
Hilda and I came to Amherst to be near our family at a time in our life to share our "golden years", with family and new friends in an environment that was conducive to continued learning and the opportunity to be a part of a challenging vital town.
We were not dissapointed.
It was amazing in the ten years we had together... to feel we are a part of Amherst.
Hilda was an important part of the Town's committee to address the needs of human services. And now thanks to you folks, I will continue her work for parity, fairness and justice.
I would like to call your attention to my interview with Larry Shaffer on ACTV Conversations, on September 12, 2007.
Larry addressed the Select Board's concerns to explore new ways to address...matching recources with needs and values. Copies of that program will be made available to the Board. I request that it be made a part of the record of tonight's proceedings.
Mr Shaffer's interview will continue to be aired on ACTV to enhance wide distribution to members of the
I look forward to enabling other voices in the community to join in discussion. Pleased to be a part of ACTV to make those voices heard.
