We would hope that the Citizens for Lower Taxes in Amesbury take pause and reconsider their Facebook comments regarding this very special community project. It would be tragic to shed a shadow of doubt on a project that gives tribute and respect to those veterans who sacrificed so much and allowed us to live a life of freedom. It is both disturbing and disappointing that such a group whose membership includes a city councilor publically post inaccurate and untrue information. The right thing to do now is to post an updated message on Facebook clarifying that all funds for this project come from individual private donations.
