Opponents of the proposed chief operating officer for City Hall have been bombarding Mayor Art Ward and City Council members with a generic email. Though many senders hail from Bristol, plenty of others are scattered across the state.
What they have in common is that they're all sending the same message:
The Bristol City Council is considering an ill-advised plan to
create a new chief financial officer position. Bristol has done
well without one for all these years. Another six figure salary
that requires a two-thirds vote to remove is not going to help
move Bristol in the right direction. Taxpayer dollars could best
be spent on projects that would directly benefit city residents.
Right or wrong, anybody who hopes to have any influence ought to put their thoughts in their own words. All this sort of thing does is irritate the officials who receive the notes.
