Letters to the Editor



The Editor:

Kudos to Mr. Ely for showing just how truly spineless he really is, when addressing the issue raised by Ms. Lawrence about the two faces of the council on shopping Blaine first.

Instead of being a true representative of the people of Blaine and answering her problem himself, he passes the buck down to Chief Elfo. Chief Elfo makes his recommendation to the council and they have the power to say no! We must support our local businesses and even though it may cost a little more we deserve to help our local people stay afloat.
Don’t pass the buck Mr. Ely, stand up and take responsibility for your actions, for shopping outside of Blaine. You approved the budget and it’s expenses, so don’t blame Chief Elfo for submitting his proposal on bids he received.

Ms. Lawrence is right in her assessment of Blaine, the council is driving businesses out, and it’s all of the council’s fault because your still throwing money faster than it’s coming in.
Dave White
Blaine
