To the editor:
The current economy is a good reason to vote “yes” for the library.
Construction costs are competitive and will most likely increase in the future.
The proposed project will create jobs for local contractors and their subs.
It is much less expensive than the original plans.
Interest rates are at historic lows.
The ongoing economic correction increases demand for information about the emerging economy. Increased public access to information will stimulate future economic growth in the community.
Whether or not you’re short on cash, the library is a great place to find information, entertainment and solace. There are free computers for people looking for jobs, free guidance for student research projects, free books for curious minds.
A “yes” vote is an investment in the long-term economic health of our community. We cannot permit an anemic economy to undermine our vision for the future.
I’m voting “yes” for the library because it is the very essence of our town, as essential to our quality of life as an outstanding community hospital and a diverse park system.
Please join me in voting “yes” for the library.
