Where does mayor stand on waterfront?

Newburyport Daily News

---- — To the editor:

Mayor Holaday’s election statement in the Sept. 11 Daily News that she no longer favors selling waterfront land or putting private housing on it makes it look as if she has caved in to concerned citizens outraged by her support for the NRA’s plan, which she helped create, to privatize the waterfront.

But this is the same mayor who ran twice on promises of an open waterfront, then did exactly the opposite.

Fool us twice, shame on her; fool us thrice, shame on all of us!
