Of course,[this was too difficult a task, andlhow could I even hope to get inside the heads of my fellow voters? came away I NEWS FRIDAY, MARCH 5 - MONDAY, MARCH 8, 2010 . 29 with just a few pointed observa- tions and here they are: One candidate swam against the tide and claimed to be in favor of one issue flat out. None of the other candidates were such risk takers. I think this was a demon- stration of leadership, plain and simple. Another candidate took a cheap shot, a "below-the-belt" comment that was made in the closing remarks. People in the audience groaned and I thought to myself "Did this candidate just show true colors?" A third candi- date seemed to disappear before my very eyes; the more this can- didate spoke, the less substance and passion seemed to be there. Was this an example of someone incapable of remaining true to convictions? Someone I know spoke fairly well but I know this candidate and maybe I know that person too well. You can'tbe one way364 days of the year, then become someone else at a candidates fo- rum. One candidate seemed too good to be true; however, given the depth and duration of that per- son's commitment to community service, I realized that this candi- date made Milton voters very, very lucky indeed! One candi- date was consistent in message and I wondered if this was one of those.cup-half-full types who al- ways sees the brighter side of every situation. "This could be good for Milton," I remember thinking. Andthen there was a candidate who seemed to be weighing everything everyone else said and measuring answers to fall somewhere in the middle of everyone else's remarks. People-pleasing is OK, but is this what our town really needs in these tough times? For me, it all boiled down to one who would lead, one who would serve and one who would challenge others to make lemonade out of lemons. Good enough for me! Now I have to wonder how many of my fellow citizens will arrive at the same conclusion but from myriad differ- ent observations and thought processes. Makes you wonder how the democratic process has gotten Us this far down the road; however, leadership, service and lemonade might just make Milton the town we all dream of. Amy Kratz Milton Milton did what it had to do under circumstances "Facts are stubborn things." So said our second president, John Adams. In my humble opinion, facts can indeed be "stubborn things." As municipal elections take place across the First State, as well as across our great nation, all citi- zens must recognize that it is up to them to discover the truth about the candidates and their re- spective campaigns. After all, it is voters who will ultimately put into office those who present the facts, or those who attempt persuasion Continued on page 30 FOR s,soo 00FreeUnltmitedTV,om I MOD Aul *1 Stock SAI $ FINI Asic Subc buy( Prior 2010 IMPREZll 2.5i SEDAN .:L CODE AJB o,Spark Silver / List i E PRICE 18.573 ,NCING AVAILABLE as 2.9% APR, |hm ru Motor Finance to qualified rs wilh approved credit. ;ales exc:luded, Offer expires March 31, 2010" 00UlBARUo, 2010 OUTBACK 2.5i PBEMlUM MODEL CODE ADD Auto, Graphite Gray / List SALE PRICE ' ..... s25.9600 otur Tres FINANCING AVAILABLE As low as 2.9% APR, thru Suberu Motor Finance to qualified buyers with approved credit.
