    The town finally had enough of the McKenna tax -and-spend machine: took much shoe leather and a quirky combo of differing personalities, but we pulled it off: the two young men conducted themselves with a maturity beyond their years, and yet an “old- fashioned” spirit of actual love for their town- rather than just the typical :”I’m a wonderful star” attitude we have gotten from too many electeds over the past few years, restoring some sanity and confidence for the future, which the town badly needs. Best of luck, Mark and Mike, Cindy and Linda, the “new majority!”
