Ortuno  succeeds  Douglas  as  Shoreham  clerk

By  JOHN  FLOWERS SHOREHAM   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   The   town   of   Shoreham   welcomes   a   new   town   clerk  this  week. Incumbent   Clerk   Amy   Douglas   decided  to  step  down,  effective  Nov.    DIWHU DSSUR[LPDWHO\ ÂżYH \HDUV of   service.   The   selectboard   has   ap-­ pointed  resident  Julie  Ortuno  to  take   Douglasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  place  until  the  Town  Meet-­ ing  Day  elections  next  March. Douglas   said   she   has   simply   de-­ cided  to  retire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   really   enjoyed   it,â&#x20AC;?   she   said   of   the  job.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  just  decided  that  now  was   the  time  (to  retire).â&#x20AC;? Ortuno  and  her  husband,  Jim,  are   former  owners  of  the  Shoreham  Inn.   Julie   Ortuno   most   recently   worked   as   assistant   innkeeper   at   the   Swift   House   Inn   in   Middlebury.   Prior   to   that,  she  was  employed  as  sales  man-­ ager   at   the   Courtyard   by   Marriott   Hotel  in  Middlebury. Serving   as   town   clerk   will   allow   her  to  work  in  her  hometown,  around   two   miles   from   her   home   and   just   across  the  street  from  her  husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   shop,  Shoreham  Upholstery.  Ortuno   VDLG VKH ZLOO GHÂżQLWHO\ UXQ IRU WKH position  on  Town  Meeting  Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   really   been   fun   to   reconnect   with  people  again,â&#x20AC;?  she  said.

An  inspection  of  Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  vehicle   by  police  following  the  accident  re-­ vealed  a  whiskey  bottle,  and  a  pre-­ liminary   breath   test   showed   Mill-­ erâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   blood-­alcohol   content   to   be   0.095   percent,   according   to   court   records.  The  legal  limit  in  Vermont   is  0.08  percent. Miller,  who  is  being  represented   by  the  Addison  County  Public  De-­ IHQGHUÂśV2IÂżFHGLGQRWKDYHLQVXU-­ ance   at   the   time   of   the   accident,   according   to   the   victims.   A   status   conference   on   Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   case   has   been   set   for   Thursday,   Dec.   16,   at   8:30   a.m.,   at   the   Addison   County   Courthouse. Veit  doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  hold  grudges,  but  is   â&#x20AC;&#x153;angryâ&#x20AC;?  the  incident  happened.

COMMUNITY  RESPONSE The   accident   happened   not   long   after   Veit   and   his   wife   had   moved   to  Vermont.  He  had  just  started  his   job  at  True  North. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   timing   was   really   bad,â&#x20AC;?   he   said. But  he  and  Gerry  have  both  found   some  things  to  be  grateful  for  in  the   aftermath  of  the  incident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   the   great   community   that   has   reached   out   to   me,â&#x20AC;?   Veit   said,  alluding  to  get-­well  cards  and   well-­wishers.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   community   in   Vermont  is  amazing.â&#x20AC;? That   spirit   of   goodwill   has   been  

epitomized   by   the   Green   Moun-­ tain  Biking  Club,  which  set  a  goal   of   $1,500   to   get   new   bikes   for   the   two  injured  cyclists.  The  fund  drive   ultimately  netted  $4,000,  according   to  Nancy  Schulz,  executive  director   of  the  Vermont  Bicycle  &  Pedestri-­ an   Coalition   and   a   co-­organizer   of   the  Tour  de  Farms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Needless   to   say,   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   wonderful   news,â&#x20AC;?  Schulz  said. The   bikes   will   be   purchased   through   Earlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Cyclery   &   Fitness   in  South  Burlington.  Organizers  are   hoping  to  present  the  bikes  to  Veit   and  Gerry  in  the  near  future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Sophie)   is   eager   to   participate   in   another   extended   bicycle   tour   next   summer,   and   she   is   very   ex-­ cited   about   receiving   a   new   bike,â&#x20AC;?   her  dad  said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m  very  grateful,â&#x20AC;?  Veit  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   never  expected  anything  like  this.â&#x20AC;? The  injured  riders  also  gave  spe-­

cial   thanks   last   week   to   Addison   County  emergency  responders,  law   enforcement  and  medical  personnel   who  helped  them  at  the  scene  of  the   accident  and  during  recovery.  They   also   thanked   Schulz   and   members   of  the  Addison  County  Relocaliza-­ tion  Network. Meanwhile,   Schulz   said   the   stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   cycling   community   is   ex-­ ploring   legislation   to   further   crack   down  on  drunk  driving.  Such  bills,   she   said,   might   focus   on   harsher   sentencing   guidelines   and/or   man-­ datory  treatment  programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We  will  try  to  get  some  gains  in   the  Legislature,â&#x20AC;?  Schulz  said. Veit  already  has  circled  a  date  for   rolling   out   his   new   bike:   Sept.   21,   2014  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  the  next  Tour  de  Farms.

A DDIS ON    INDE P E NDEN T

Editorial

State  eyes  tough  sledding to  balance  2015  budget While  weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  discussing  all  things  local  in  this  column  in  recent  weeks,   two   substantial   developments   outside   our   immediate   sphere   warrant   re-­ view:  the  recommendation  to  increase  the  state  education  property  tax  base   rate  by  5  cents,  and  Vermont  House  Speaker  Shap  Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  call  to  make  ends   meet  this  session  without  increasing  taxes.   Last  Tuesday,  Tax  Commissioner  Mary  Peterson  issued  her  annual  prop-­ HUW\WD[UHFRPPHQGDWLRQIRUWKHÂżVFDO\HDU6KHQRWHGWKHLPSHQG-­ ing  budget  shortcoming  and  proposed  a  5-­cent  hike  on  the  base  homestead   property   tax   from   94   cents   to   99   cents   as   well   as   on   the   non-­residential   property  tax  rate  from  $1.44  to  $1.49.  She  recommended  no  change  to  the   1.8  percent  rate  on  the  homestead  income  tax. The  Legislature,  which  sets  the  statewide  tax  rates,  will  consider  Peter-­ sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  recommendations  in  the  upcoming  session,  but  will  do  so  with  anoth-­ er  of  Petersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  recommendations  and  Gov.  Peter  Shumlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  endorsement:   WKDWODZPDNHUVDQGVFKRROERDUGVFRQWLQXHZRUNLQJWRÂżQGDZD\WROLPLW the  annual  growth  in  school  spending.   Shumlin  had  previously  called  for  a  symposium  on  school  spending  this   coming  January  to  study  the  education  funding  system  and  to  address  one   of  the  weaknesses  he  sees  in  the  current  formula:  that  too  many  households   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   face   enough   of   an   increase   in   their   tax   bills   when   school   spending   climbs.   Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   because   residents   with   household   incomes   below   $90,000   annually   pay   an   education   tax   based   on   their   incomes   (or   ability   to   pay)   rather  than  on  the  assessed  value  of  their  property.  Because  of  that  formula,   the  burden  of  education  is  falling  on  a  smaller  number  of  Vermonters.   Neither   the   Democratic-­leaning   House   or   Senate   are   likely   going   to   change  that  formula  in  2014,  but  some  tweaks  may  be  in  order.   Senate  President  Pro  Tem  John  Campbell  said  the  issue  will  be  a  major   priority  of  his  for  the  upcoming  session,  noting  he  thought  the  16-­year-­old   legislation  (starting  with  Act  60  and  68)  had  reached  a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;tipping  pointâ&#x20AC;?  in   which  the  basic  formula  might  need  to  be  revised.   Meanwhile,  in  an  interview  with  VTDigger,  House  Speaker  Shap  Smith   had  a  slightly  different  take:  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our  system  really  is  one  that  is  targeted   towards  equity  in  a  way  that  no  other  system  is,  but  I  think  we  need  to  dig   deeper  into  the  question  of  whether  the  systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  focus  on  equity  is  also   getting  us  equitable  results  and  opportunities  for  students.â&#x20AC;? The  good  news  is  the  initial  conversation  has  been  set  up  in  a  non-­ confrontational  environment  seeking  a  nonpartisan  solution.  The  bad  news   is  that  it  remains  a  tough  nut  to  crack  without  obvious  solutions  as  to  how   to  spread  the  burden  among  more  Vermonters.   While  that  conversation  will  dominate  hours  of  discussion  within  the   appropriate  legislative  committees,  Smith  also  recently  let  it  be  known   that  Vermont  will  be  facing  annual  budget  shortfalls  of  about  $50  million   to  $70  million  â&#x20AC;&#x153;as  far  as  the  eye  can  see.â&#x20AC;?  Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  partly  because  the   federal  government  is  sending  less  money  to  Vermont  to  sustain  existing   programs.  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  also  because  the  cost  of  existing  state  programs  is  growing   faster  than  the  growth  of  state  revenues. The  only  viable  solution,  Smith  said  in  an  early  volley  before  the   Legislature  returns  full-­time  to  Montpelier  in  January,  is  to  curb  spending,   not  look  to  increase  taxes.  Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  bold  statement,  echoed  by  the   governor,  and  a  clear  signal  to  the  Legislature  that  the  state  canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  spend  its   ZD\RXWRIWRGD\ÂśVÂżVFDOUHDOLW\ Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  a  tune  Progressives  or  many  Democrats  want  to  hear.  Nor   is  it  music  to  the  ears  of  the  thousands  of  recipients  who  depend  on  state   programs  to  make  ends  meet  while  they  try  to  improve  their  lives.  Rather,   the  stage  is  being  set  for  an  upcoming  session  based  on  frugality  and  the   recognition  that  spending  has  to  be  reined  in  to  meet  the  stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  revenues.   Nor  does  that  mean  cutting  all  programs  equally;Íž  rather,  it  could  mean   picking  and  choosing  among  those  programs  deemed  most  successful  and   trimming  or  eliminating  others  that  have  less  of  a  payback.   Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  being  a  Scrooge,  just  being  realistic  about  the  tough  choices   that  lie  ahead.

Letters to the Editor Paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  coverage  limited  at  best;Íž  editorials  are  worse   I  have  been  following  the   paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  coverage  of  the  town  hall   project,  and  the  associated  conver-­ sations  on  the  editorial  page,  with   great  interest,  shifting  to  surprise,   dismay,  frustration  and  anger.  I  am   still  uncertain  how  I  feel  about  the   project  itself,  with  too  many  vague   details  and  unanswered  questions   WRDOORZPHWREHDVXIÂżFLHQWO\ informed  voter. But  I  am  not  uncertain  about   judging  the  Independentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  role  in   the  affair,  as  its  journalistic  cover-­ age  has  been  extremely  limited,   lacking  multiple  perspectives  

and  voices,  and  prioritizing  the   arguments  and  authority  of  certain   selectboard  members  over  other   HOHFWHGRIÂżFLDOVDQGFLWL]HQV, write  that  with  disappointment,  as   I  am  friends  with  a  number  of  the   paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  journalists  and  staffers,  and   have  often  praised  the  Independent   as  a  model  of  a  local  paper  thriving   by  serving  its  community. However,  my  frustration  with   the  news  coverage  is  nothing   compared  to  my  outrage  over  how   the  paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  publisher  and  editor,   Angelo  Lynn,  has  misused  his   perch  above  the  masthead  to  mis-­

represent  opposition  to  the  project,   mislead  readers  about  the  process,   and  attack  citizens  writing  to  the   paper.  While  a  publisher  has  the   right  and  even  obligation  to  weigh   in  on  important  issues,  Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   litany  of  rude,  condescending   and  often  inaccurate  editorials  go   beyond  his  role  as  a  newsman  ar-­ guing  a  point,  and  into  the  realm  of   aggressive,  ill-­mannered  punditry   PRUHEHÂżWWLQJVHQVDWLRQDOWDEORLGV (I  certainly  hope  that  the  paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   poor  news  coverage  of  the  issue  is   not  being  swayed  by  Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  edito-­ (See  Mittell,  Page  7)

Lynn  adopts  two  particularly   inappropriate  tactics.  First,  he   attacks  others  for  his  own  sins,   such  as  accusing  letter  writers  of   being  â&#x20AC;&#x153;uncivilâ&#x20AC;?  when  they  wrote  to   protest  his  characterization  of  the   projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  opposition  as  employing   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tea  Party  tactics.â&#x20AC;?  In  his  recent   editorial  from  Nov.  7,  he  laments   such  critics  as  â&#x20AC;&#x153;a  handful  of  people   (that)  get  together  with  similar   talking  points  and  pound  away  at   WKDWPHVVDJH´²DÂżQHGHVFULSWLRQ of  his  own  style  in  writing  editori-­ als.  He  sanctimoniously  decries   letters  that  â&#x20AC;&#x153;spread  falsehoods   or  half-­truths,â&#x20AC;?  then  proceeds  to   cherry-­pick  information  to  support   his  own  arguments  while  failing  to   mention  other  important  points.  He   characterizes  his  critics  as  a  small   minority  of  obstructionists,  while   there  have  been  many  more  letters   questioning  the  project  and  process   than  praising  it  in  recent  weeks  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   although  more  ink  has  been  given   to  supporters  through  Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  own  

lengthy  editorials. Second  and  even  more  troubling,   Lynn  abuses  his  position  as  editor   by  responding  to  letters  before   readers  even  have  a  chance  to  read   them,  offering  a  â&#x20AC;&#x153;pre-­buttalâ&#x20AC;?  on  his   page  four  editorial  in  anticipation   RIDOHWWHURQSDJHÂżYH5HDGHUV then  consume  a  letter  that  insti-­ gated  his  response  as  framed  by   Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  context,  not  on  its  own   merits;Íž  this  practice  violates  the   principle  of  letters  to  newspapers   as  an  open  democratic  forum.   5HFHQWO\KHVXJJHVWHGWKDWWKHHGL-­ torâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  job  is  to  â&#x20AC;&#x153;temper  the  tempestâ&#x20AC;?   created  by  the  so-­called  â&#x20AC;&#x153;bulliesâ&#x20AC;?   via  a  quotation  from  Emerson  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   but  as  I  understand  it,  Emerson   is  referring  to  the  â&#x20AC;&#x153;bulliesâ&#x20AC;?  of   government  leaders,  not  ordinary   citizens  questioning  the  actions  of   those  elites. To  me,  the  real  bullying  is  when   the  owner  and  editor  of  our  com-­ munityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  primary  media  outlet   directly  attacks  citizens  for  taking   an  interest  in  town  politics  and   expressing  their  opinions  in  an   (allegedly)  open  forum.  I  know  

a  good  number  of  citizens  who   have  been  intimidated  from  writ-­ ing  to  the  Independent,  for  fear  of   unleashing  this  â&#x20AC;&#x153;editorial  tempestâ&#x20AC;?   upon  them,  a  sad  state  of  affairs  for   a  small  community. As  I  assume  this  letter  will   prompt  Mr.  Lynn  to  seek  to   â&#x20AC;&#x153;temperâ&#x20AC;?  my  uncivil  accusations   and  half-­truths,  I  decided  to  save   him  time  and  offer  some  material   for  his  inevitable  â&#x20AC;&#x153;pre-­buttal,â&#x20AC;?  in   my  humble  attempt  to  capture  his   recent  writing  style: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jason  Mittellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  letter  claimed   to  support  editorial  fairness,  but  it   was  destroyed  by  his  own  Mc-­ Carthyesque  name-­calling  and  lack   of  full  disclosure.  He  claims  that   readers  have  been  too  intimidated   by  my  reasoned  discourse  to  write   letters,  but  unless  he  names  names   of  these  critics,  how  can  we  know   they  are  real,  especially  when   compared  with  the  vast  majority  of   Middlebury  residents  whom  I  am   certain  endorse  the  town  hall  plan?   $GGLWLRQDOO\WKHSRWHQWLDOFRQĂ&#x20AC;LFW of  interest  posed  by  my  own  wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   role  in  Vermont  economic  develop-­

ment  initiatives  was  printed  in  the   paper  (via  a  helpful  letter  to  the   editor  on  Nov.  7),  but  Mittell  failed   WRUHYHDOWKDWKLVRZQZLIHLV5XWK Hardy,  chair  of  ID-­4  school  board   and  a  member  of  the  projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   steering  committee.  Given  that   she  is  beholden  to  the  voters  that   elected  her  and  the  children  served  

by  Mary  Hogan,  we  must  dismiss   Mittellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  criticisms  as  unduly   LQĂ&#x20AC;XHQFHGE\WKRVHQDUURZVSHFLDO interests.â&#x20AC;? I  look  forward  to  my  bullying   being  further  tempered. Jason  Mittell East  Middlebury

Free  Advent  Series  concerts  at  St.  Stephenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  start  Dec.  5 MIDDLEBURY   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Well-­ known   Vermont   contralto   Linda   Radtke   will   join   St.   Stephenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Church  organist  George  Matthew   Jr.  in  the  first  concert  of  the  third   annual   Noontime   Advent   Series   this   Thursday,   Dec.   5,   at   the   church   on   the   Middlebury   town   green. All   three   of   the   concerts   in   the   series   begin   at   12:15   p.m.   Everyone   is   welcome   to   enjoy   the  free  performances,  and  brown   bagging  is  encouraged. On   Thursday,   Radtke   will  

sing   works   by   Bach,   Handel   and   Vaughn-­Williams.   She   was   the   principal   alto   soloist   for   the   Mozart   Festival   and   has   also   soloed   with   the   Oriana   singers   and   the   Vermont   Philharmonic.   She  has  been  a  member  of  Robert   de   Cormierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Counterpoint   since   its   inception   and   is   also   a   member   of   Ah!   Cappella,   a   vocal   quartet   sponsored   by   the   Vermont   Symphony   Orchestra.   In   addition,   she   hosts   two   clas-­ sical   music   programs,   Vermont   Notes   and   The   Classic   Vermont  

Choral   Hour,   at   Classic   Vermont   101.7FM  and  has  toured  the  state   performing  her  one-­woman  show   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two   Hundred  Years   of  Vermont   Popular  Music.â&#x20AC;? The   next   Noontime   Advent   Series   concert   on   Dec.   12   will   feature   the   St.   Stephenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Band   led   by   Emily   Sunderman,   who   plays  violin  in  the  Addison  String   Quartet  and  several  other  ensem-­ bles.   In   the   time   of   Handel,   the   word   â&#x20AC;&#x153;bandâ&#x20AC;?   often   referred   to   a   small  group  of  players  of  various   instruments.   St.   Stephenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Band  

includes   two   flutes,   two   violins,   a   viola,   and   a   cello,   all   played   by   accomplished   musicians   who   are   members   of   our   very   musi-­ cal   community.   With   George   Matthew   Jr.   at   the   organ,   they   will   perform   Handelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   concertos   numbers  two  and  four  for  strings   and  organ. In  the  third  week  of  Advent,  on   Dec.   19,   internationally   known   organist   and   carillonneur   George   Matthew  Jr.  will  present  an  organ   recital  of  works  by  Daquin,  Cesar   Franck,   Naji   Hakim,   and   Sigfrid  

Karg-­Elert.  Louis-­Claude  Daquin   was  a  Jewish  French  prodigy  who   played  for  the  court  of  King  Louis   XIV   when   he   was   six   years   old   and  became  the  organist  at  Sainte-­ Chapelle  at  12.  He  was  a  prolific   composer  for  organ  in  the  baroque   and   galant   styles.   By   contrast,   Naji   Hakim,   born   in   Beirut   in   1955,   is   an   active   contemporary   composer,   teacher   and   performer   on   the   organ.   Winner   of   many   awards  and  honors,  he  is  a  leader   in   the   creation   of   21st-­century   organ  works.

Tips to keep seasonal plants looking great

Ferrisburgh (Continued from Page 1) Lawrence  said.   DeVos,  who  had  served  since  the   1990s,  announced  his  resignation  in   an  Oct.  22  letter  to  Lawrence,  citing   â&#x20AC;&#x153;recent  eventsâ&#x20AC;?  that  made  it  neces-­ sary  to  â&#x20AC;&#x153;step  back  from  some  of  his   responsibilities.â&#x20AC;? Gutowski   recently   completed   a   12-­year   term   on   the   Ferrisburgh   Board   of   Zoning   Adjustment,   and   has   also   served   as   the   townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   rep-­ resentative   on   the  Addison   County   Solid  Waste  Management  District.   Lawrence  said  selectboard  mem-­ bers   were   impressed   by   his   civic   background   and   his   career,   which   EOHQGVFXVWRPHUVHUYLFHDQGÂżQDQ-­ cial  management.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;He  works  with  the  public  every   day   with   his   job,   and   the   business   aspect   was   a   great   factor.   He   just   seems   so   professional,   and   he   lis-­ tens   to   both   sides   of   every   story,â&#x20AC;?   Lawrence  said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;He  just  seems  like   he   would   be   a   great   asset   to   the   board.   It   was   tough.   There   were   some  great  candidates.â&#x20AC;? The   others   who   the   board   inter-­ viewed  and  considered  on  Tuesday   were,  in  alphabetical  order:   Â&#x2021; 'HQQLV$UPHOO D FRQVHUYDWLRQ commission  member.   Â&#x2021; 7KRPDV'UXPKHOOHUDQHOHFWHG auditor.

Gutowski   said   he   believes   his   business  background  would  be  use-­ ful  in  his  new  role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   a   lot   of   things   people   would   like   to   see   done   in   town   â&#x20AC;Ś   and  in  the  end  you  have  to  have  the   ability  to  pay  for  them,â&#x20AC;?  he  said.   Gutowski  said  he  would  not  bring   any  plans  or  goals  to  the  board  with   him   other   than   getting   up   to   speed   as  quickly  as  possible  and  pitching   in.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;There   wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   any   one   particu-­ lar   reason   or   thing   that   is   going   on   in   the   town   that   prompted   me   to   throw   my   hat   in   the   ring,â&#x20AC;?   he   said.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  certainly  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  think  I  have  

any   agenda   I   want   to   push   on   the   town.â&#x20AC;? TREASURER  ISSUE Selectboard   members   on   Tues-­ day   also   discussed   their   next   step   in  the  process  of  getting  more  help   for  Town  Clerk  and  Treasurer  Chet   Hawkins   and   Assistant   Clerk   and   Treasurer  Pam  Cousino. Hawkins,  Cousino,  the  townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  au-­ ditors  and  selectboard  members  say   they   all   agree   more   help   is   needed   as  the  town,  their  workload,  and  the   complexity   of   the   treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   job   have  all  grown.   The  board  talked  with  Hawkins  at   its   Nov.   19   meeting   and   agreed   to   pull  its  ad  for  a  new  town  treasurer   and   reevaluate   whether   the   board   should  hire  a  full-­time  treasurer,  as   had  been  its  initial  plan.   Hawkins   and   at   least   one   resi-­ dent  suggested  at  that  meeting  that   instead  Hawkins  should  hire  an  as-­ sistant  treasurer,  possibly  for  fewer   hours,   because   Hawkins   could   re-­ WDLQWKHSRZHUWRÂżUHWKHHPSOR\HH if  he  or  she  did  not  work  out. At  the  end  of  that  Nov.  19  discus-­ sion,   selectboard   members   agreed   they   had   to   step   back   and   recon-­ sider  the  position  and  their  options,   and   Lawrence   said   they   will   do   so   at  their  Dec.  3  meeting.   There,  Lawrence  said,  the  board,   the   townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   auditors   and   Hawkins   will   sit   down   and   â&#x20AC;&#x153;see   how   weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   going  to  move  forward.â&#x20AC;?
