To the editor:

Unfortunately, I can’t attend today’s Bartlett vote. I’m at the Mayo Clinic dealing with a medical condition. Even if I were home, my condition requires social distancing/isolation. Because of Zoom I have been able to continue to meet my responsibilities as a Bartlett Planning Board member and attend most selectmen meetings.

My questions to the select persons is why do they oppose a technology that lets more people participate in the town governance? Bartlett voters need to ask themselves that question before they vote on the warrant articles.

The answer to your question is. Because the selectmen do not understand that we, the citizens of the US are supposed to be participating in government proceeding. Instead we hire (vote) someone to do it for us, Mistake
