Personally, this display of generosity leaves me conflicted. On one hand, I’m grateful. I applaud and thank the many donors for their dedication and support of the Town of Newbury. On the other hand, I’m embarrassed and ashamed of our town. We are not and should not be a charity that needs to ask for help or rely on the generosity of others to complete the most basic of town projects. We are a beautiful, family friendly community and we can, and more importantly, should do better.
On Nov. 6 please vote YES on Question 4.
