Opinion: Town Meeting thanks

Apr 12, 2021

To the Editor:

I am writing to commend Wareham Week for its in-depth unbiased, informative news coverage of the Planning Board and Selectmen's meetings leading up to the proposed re-zoning article that was before the voters.

Editor Chloe Shelford's writings injected clarity into an environment in which the goalposts kept moving and the acreage kept changing. Chloe, Wareham's voters, pro and con, owe you a depth of gratitude for your tenacity in monitoring the Re-zoning article as it changed during the process leading up to the vote.

I would also like to commend Moderator Claire Smith for a job well done in maintaining order in an environment which could well have otherwise evolved into chaos.

I would also like to thank all the voters, for and against the re-zoning article, who showed up on a Saturday afternoon because they care about the community in which they live. Feel free to reach backward and pat yourselves on the back.

Cordially, Don Jepson
