We here at OHB would like to thank the hundreds of people who have sent us emails in response to our BOS email post.
We are humbled by your expression of support for our post. The lesson I learned from all of your emails will forever be remembered.
So many wrote to thank us for advocating for their right to express themselves! So many of our readers were angered that the BOS, by not discussing this supposed “Evidence of Community Support” document, denied them their right to express their opinions on this matter. Good, bad or indifferent…everyone has the right to express themselves and our leaders should extend us the courtesy of listening!
So many of our readers felt betrayed…as if the document was falsified because no real effort was made by the BOS to actually seek public opinion in an open forum.
I was extremely moved by how many who wrote to thank us for posting Chapter 203, Article III of our Planning Board’s regulations detailing the Conceptual Consultation provision…One resident wrote, “Thank you OHB for shining a light down the darkened corridors of Henniker’s Town Hall.”
Another wrote, “doing business out of public is denying people of right to comment.”
I have learned my lesson…LIBERTY IS THE RIGHT TO BE HEARD…. And Leaders have an obligation to listen…I hope our BOS learned that same lesson!
If not learned…we all get burned!
OHB…keeping it real… making it easier for you to find the facts so you can draw your own conclusions…..
