  1. Hi!
    I watched about or around half of it. None of us are not without our biases but textbooks should be devoid of political ideology promotion as much as humanly possible. One dilemma although I did hear this, I realize the treatment of the Civil War at one time was difficult, possibly still somewhat (?), as books had to be sold in the South.

  4. Hi!
    I realize their is concern about the increase in the fire tax. That is mainly predicated on the cost of the fire station addition. I was NOT on the building committee. What is NOT known is I was the only fire commissioner not on the building committee. The committee was selected before I was elected was elected as a Fire Commissioner. The three fire commissioners were named to the building committee by name not by office so I was left off.
    We have a charter committee which is dormant headed by Ron Kennedy which as four Ashaway firefighters and three non Ashaway firefighters. Mr. Kennedy was critical of me during the annual meeting. One bone of contention has been the desire of myself and two others to have the tax collector and treasurer,(both separate offices), appointed.
    However the votes are not there to enact the change.
    I believe that with an appointed tax collector and treasurer, the governing board,(fire commissioners), can direct their activities, set hours, and establish a selection process. We could also go outside the district to find candidates. As elected offices the governing board can only really request them to do something not really direct them to.
    I hope the charter committee starts working again.
    The new year starts this coming Tuesday at 7:00 P.M., at the fire station, with the swearing-in of our offices, John Donahue, will repace Keith Roode as a Fire Commissioner.
    The problem with the Ashaway Fire District is this: At the annual meeting virtually most attendees are firefighters and possibly some family members. The attendees are not a cross section of the community. Quorums are not always easy to reach.
    Regards,
    Scott
