To the editor:
What is being lost in this fiasco that we call the Hatton Solar Project is the attitude of the Republican majority on the Southington Town Council.
Over the past several years we have seen personal attacks on Democrats from the floor of the council. We have seen the council ignore suggestions from Democrats and act with the attitude of “Sit down. Be quiet. We know best.”
This is not about Councilor Tom Lombardi. The determination that he violated the town’s ethics rules is the unfortunate conclusion to the way that the republican majority has run the council and the town.
We need a council that will listen to opposing opinions. We need a council that makes decisions after full discussion, not before it enters the council chamber. We need a council that recognizes that others can have good ideas. We need a change.
Make that change. Vote democratic on Election Day.
