The Democrats have nominated Sylvia Overby
and Peter Van Scoyoc, two planning board veterans.
Overby is bright, she has a firm grasp on the town's history, she was an effective planning board member, as compared to the current Democrat incumbents who seem like they checked out months ago.
Our problem with Overby
, though, is she's
never met a conspiracy theory she
didn't like as long as it makes the other party look bad.
Overby sat passively on the sidelines while disgraced former Supervisor Bill McGintee single handedly tried to wreck the CPF program by diverting all the money that was in it.
We fear she
will blindly go down any road the Democratic machine sends her
down, and will dutifully parrot the party's agenda no matter how ludicrous.
We hope Overby
legacy has yet to be written.
We can only hope if she
is elected she
puts partisan politics behind her
, because from where we sit she
is the frontrunner.
We need someone to defend the planning process, someone inside if plans are indeed being made outside the public's purview.
There is something wickedly wonderful about Overby
, and she
will be a fulltime presence in town hall.
and Van Scoyoc would put a two-year moratorium on accepting FAA money, and that's money taxpayers will have to come up with.
The Independent endorses Sylvia Overby
and Marilyn Behan.
