A new "funding request" for affordable housing? Barrington taxpayers are already paying the highest per capita taxes in the state, and now it appears Palmer Pointe and Walker Farm want more money from town residents. We have to end this "deep pockets" impression by the affordable advocates. I hope the environmentalists are finally taking notice that the more we subsidize, the faster the developers are plowing under the limited open space we have left.

I had dinner last evening with 8 of my contemporaries. One has moved to FL and the rest of us are trying to decide where to go ---- no place here for us even though most have supported the Town for over 50 years in tax money and volunteering in various ways! Time to wake up folks. Make your voices heard - I know you are out there as I see and speak to you in many places and know how you feel. Pick up a pen or come to a meeting. There is strength in numbers. Help save Barrington's precious waterfront land. Apathy is how this has happened !!!!!
