Letter: Easton Resolution on Racism and Public Health: Why it Matters

Citizens for Responsible Government (CRG) professes to “protect and sustain the traditional processes of governance in our town by providing accurate information on issues important to Easton residents”.

Letter: New Resident Shocked by Citizens for Responsible Government Mailing

To the Editor:

When we were looking to buy a home last year, my wife and I were drawn to Easton and its reputation as a welcoming, family friendly community.

Letter: Hope and Commitment

To the Editor:

Hope and Commitment

To the Editor:

This isn’t who we are.

I see it as a sad commentary on our inability to agree to Continue reading “Letter: Freedom of Speech”

Letter: Thanks, But No Thanks to Input from Secret PACs

To the Editor:

The most telling aspect of the pamphlet Easton residents received this week was its failure to identify those who produced it. A pamphlet issued by those too ashamed to attach their names to it does not deserve serious discussion.

Anonymous mailings should always Continue reading “Letter: Thanks, But No Thanks to Input from Secret PACs”

Letter: Vocabulary Can Be Fun, and Words Matter, Today in Easton More Than Ever

To the Editor:

The mailer we all received this week from “Citizens for Responsible Government” shocked, disappointed, and angered many of us who live in Easton. It is a diatribe against efforts to make Easton a town that cares about social justice and proves it by embracing change.
