Your editorial of Aug. 4 states that our town council has “missed an opportunity” by delaying and delaying the installation of the rainbow crosswalk and further by planning to place the crosswalk “about as far as you can go from central Old Town” and still claim it’s in Old Town.
I don’t think that this is a “missed opportunity” at all in that I believe it’s exactly what council wants.
Council is treating our LGBTQ citizens like people in the old days who hid their developmentally delayed children away in back rooms as sources of embarrassment and shame.
Furthermore, I feel it is reasonable for me to believe that their goal is to appease the sources of their votes, NOTL’s conservative rural voters.
If I am wrong on these two counts, I hope to see letters to the editor correcting me.
