To The Editor:
I write with regard to the upcoming recall election of one J. Gregory Milne, Town Councilor from Precinct 13, Hyannis. I do not ordinarily express my opinion on matters related to local politics, however, after doing some reading and research about the recall effort, I have personally come to the conclusion that it is both unwarranted and unjustified. Furthermore, I am now extremely troubled that the recall mechanism within our town charter has become the focus of unethical abuse and is being used as a political tool to coerce and bully locally elected public officials to carry out the political desires of a select few members of this community. The consequence of failing to do so appears to result in the aforementioned recall election as the undeserved punishment.
I do not know Mr. Milne personally, however, it is quite obvious that he most certainly is not guilty of anything illegal or improper by any reasonable definition of such terms. It is my sincere hope that the voters who decide the political fate of Mr. Milne on Thursday the 17th of December do so after carefully investigating this entire matter and then make an informed decision regarding it.
