Enough with the Trump bashing

Dear Editor: Regarding several recent intense letters to the Canton Citizen by Alice Brown, my response is: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” (from William Shakespeare). And to use a much more common 21st century expression: “Enough already!” Her points have been made. I don’t think any more from her needs to be stated about (that is, against) President Trump. I did vote for […]

Anti-pipeline study does disservice to local energy customers

Dear Editor: Your recent story about the proposed Access Northeast gas pipeline project, “New report questions costs, need for pipeline project” (Canton Citizen, 3/2/17), highlights a seriously flawed analysis of the need for additional pipeline infrastructure here in New England. While your balanced story included comments from Spectra Energy refuting the study, I feel compelled […]

Praise for CCTV’s Andrea Galvin

Dear Editor: I would like to thank Andrea Galvin of Canton Community TV for taking time out of her day to search for 20-year-old episodes of “School Days.” Andrea spent time converting old VHS tapes to digital files so we could show clips at our 20th class reunion. Her dedication to cataloging Canton’s happenings for […]

Jeremy Comeau will be a strong voice for Canton

Dear Editor: I am writing in support of Jeremy Comeau, who is running for selectman. Having recently met Mr. Comeau, I can attest that he is a bright and impassioned leader who advocates for tolerance, a value of particular importance at the local level given the uncertain political climate we currently face in this country. […]

Former Rec. director backs Theodore for BOS

Dear Editor: It is with great pleasure that I write to you on behalf of Tom Theodore, 2017 candidate for the Board of Selectmen. As a member of the Playground and Recreation Commission, he has consistently demonstrated strong leadership skills and an exceptional ability to work with others. Tom is a person of integrity whose […]

Galvin’s pay raise defense leaves out key details

Dear Editor: In Representative Galvin’s letter to the editor in last week’s Canton Citizen, he makes a good argument from his perspective concerning the difficulty in setting legislative pay increases. But I think he protests too much. His omissions in his arguments stand out like a sore thumb. One simply has to search Ballotpedia.org to […]

Show DCR your support for a Canton rink

Dear Editor: Last Thursday, I attended the South Shore Ice Rink Feasibility Study meeting in Norwood. It is clear that Norwood is just as committed to building an ice rink as Canton is to rebuilding Ponky. We must demonstrate to the Department of Conservation and Recreation our dedication to the sport and the urgent need […]

Letters reveal hypocrisy of Trump critics

Dear Editor: While reading the responses in last week’s edition I couldn’t help but notice the use of the word ‘disgust’ in describing the character and policies of our new president. To be honest, I didn’t vote for President Trump (voted for Pat Tillman), but I couldn’t help wondering if the authors of these letters […]

Galvin: Why I voted to increase pay

Dear Editor: Many residents have contacted me about legislation that increased stipends for certain positions in the legislature and pay for the state’s judges and constitutional officers. There has been considerable inaccurate information spread about what was included in this legislation. I wish to clarify some of the finer points of this legislation that helped […]

Legislative pay raises shocking, hypocritical

Dear Editor: I am disgusted and speechless by the size and scope of the pay raise Representative Bill Galvin (D-Canton) voted for himself and his fellow legislators. Thus, I will type it out. State legislators recently received a pay raise four weeks ago and came off a five-month vacation prior to their recent vote to […]
