To the editor:
Just to state a finer point on why out-of-staters” and part-time residents should be treated with a little more kindness and hospitality:
Conway Sun, Friday, April 24, 2020: “Town staff Tuesday told selectmen the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic would blow a huge hole in the town revenue.”
That’s right. All of those people who are currently feeling less than welcome based on the editorials and letters I’ve been reading are the ones that fill in those budget holes.
So rather than putting up the huge “Go Home” sign, the village might want to be thinking about how they are making the rest of us feel, because right now, it is not very wanted or welcome. In some cases, it has been downright hostile.
One day soon, this will end, and you will want that infusion of cash and commerce that we bring to what we used to consider being, “Our” town, too.
