To the Editor:

If and when the Maytag/Whirlpool merger happens and the current executives are leaving our community with millions of dollars in severance packages from Maytag — a company that has been prosperous for many years under the leadership of Mr. Hadley and those before him coupled with the hard work of many Newton generations of families — it seems a fair request to Mr. Hake and the others that they donate all or a good portion of their severances to our Newton Promise proposal. Their severances alone would finance the scholarship program for many years to come.
