I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the Save Our Town Committee members, and its supporters for their hard work and dedication during this fight to keep Rindge rural. Without you, this huge win would not have been possible. I am truly humbled by the outpouring of support that I received during the past six months.
The biggest thanks of all should go to the voters of Rindge. You are the ones that read the facts, did your research, and realized the importance of what Save Our Town was fighting for. Maybe you grew up here as I did, or maybe you moved here for the peaceful, quiet, rural life style. Either way, you saw the importance of not allowing our beautiful town to become the next Fitchburg, or Nashua.
I have said it before, and I will say it again, if you like that sort of living, that is your right. Please don’t move here and change the way we like to live because it does not suit you. There are plenty of areas just like that for you.
Make no mistake about it, you, the voters, made a very loud statement with the power of your vote. We didn’t just win, we won by such a large margin that it cannot be ignored. We sent a very powerful message that when we speak, we will be heard. Small and rural is the way we will keep it. I am proud of you all for doing what was right for Rindge. The Save Our Town Committee will remain a watchdog for Rindge, assuring this town stays small and rural. We do not need the federal governments help. We are a strong and proud community, and will take care of ourselves. If we can’t afford it on our own, then we really have to ask the hard question, do we really need it? Isn’t that how you run your personal lives?
Save Our Town, Rindge
