Farnham had a momentary lapse of judgment

To The Editor:

After analyzing recently published statements proffered by Precinct 11 Barnstable Town Councilor Henry Farnham regarding his vote to oust John Klimm as Town Manager, one may deduce that Farnham had a momentary lapse of judgment in that instance. However, was that really the only fleeting period of less than lucid thinking on his part?

Farnham has not performed his "due diligence" in the best interests of the voters and residents of Barnstable. Farnham's own words seem to indicate he believes Klimm was some sort of control freak in the manner Klimm executed his duties as town manager. Farnham was not seeing concrete reality, when in fact Klimm was adeptly doing his job as the chief administrator of the Town.

The Councilor is apparently also under the delusion that the approaching November 8th election is part of some kind of clever conspiracy or scheme by unknown parties to remove him from office. It is simply democracy in action with the voters exercising their Constitutional rights as citizens of this Commonwealth. If Farnham's actions in recent years on the Town Council are an accurate gauge of his performance, then voting for change in the upcoming election would be an astutely intelligent decision.

Sincerely yours,
