Dirty Politics the Order of the Day at the South Thomaston Town Meeting

By Sonja Sleeper

What ever happened to a good old fashioned debate and a clean campaign?  If Mary Waterman wanted to run why didn't she take out papers?  A write in candidacy at the Town Meeting. The fire department even got their fire truck.  I also noticed a good sized group of people left after that vote.   All's well and fair in politics, no not at all, nothing could be farther from the truth.   Loading the room, and sneaky tricks cost in the long run.  People wonder why there is no faith in government, why people think officials are crooks, and say that the rich get their way.  This nights meeting is a prime example of this.  No I will not be congratulating the Fire Department or the new Select Board Member because they did not win fair and square.
