To the editor of THE EAGLE:

As yet another example of the decline of our great town of Hinsdale I offer you the contrast between the way town meetings were before, and how town meeting are as we now know them. Filled with dark overtones, everyone is a bad guy, abuse of women, racist stuff. In contrast to the happy-go-lucky days of town meetings, when a good guy was a good guy, a bad guy got his comeuppance and everyone went home happy. When the Select Board and police and fire departments were on the same team and presided over the activities of the town for the good of the town.

Have a vote. In or out. Yes or no. You decide Mr. and Mrs. Hinsdale!
