Letter: Brewster Resident Concerned Over Runaway Spending

from Daniel Secor

Letter to the Editor:

So let's see, Brewster has a spending problem that has finally crossed an imaginary line such that town hall is demanding an over ride of prop. 2 1/2.  That is inevitably going to get worse as they adopt a green initiative that will give them energy burdens in the form of more expensive vehicle replacement forever and increase the cost of housing including town buildings due to the adoption of stretch codes.  We will wind up with three RMEs that will require more policing with salaries and pensions forever.  The beaches are already crowded with people from afar that have been welcomed here by a conservation department that takes land from the state that isn’t theirs and creates more parking to accommodate them making the beaches too crowded to be enjoyable.  This will require more police presence, but only for 10 weeks a year.  However, the police will be with us year ‘round with nothing better to do than over police the citizens and collect easy salaries and pensions.  This is all being done to grow the Brewster economy but the only people seeing a profit from this strategy are town employees, H2B workers who become illegal aliens once their visas expire and they choose to stay, and a hand full of business owners that close and take off for warmer climes once tourist season concludes.  I guess that’s how you have to run things once you legalize same sex marriage so that your new school is empty ten years later, cave to the whining of the fire chief and give him his new palace, same for the police, build a library when people only read what is readily available from the internet, and donate the unused fire station along with $165k for modifications to the ever hungry shellfish department.

Fair Winds & Following Seas, 

Dan Secor, Brewster
