To the Editor:

I think that we would be better off if we got rid of some of the top end people in the city. If we had just the city council and not all the highly paid administrators and directors and advisors maybe we would be better off.

I can’t see where all this advice that we are paying so highly for has brought any new large employers into town. In fact it hasn’t been able to keep our long time home bred employer (Maytag) to stay here. Maybe we wouldn’t be having grandiose ideas like the race track shoved at us when a good share of us taxpayers feel that it is not going to be successful, even if it does get built.

There have been so many unanswered questions about the race track, we as taxpayers are worried. Are we going to be stuck with a big bill when our biggest employer is trying to move out of town?

Let us scale back our thinking into a more sensible realm and maybe life would be less stressful here in Newton.
