Milton's next mayor: Marion Jones

March 2, 2013

The letter, appearing in the Cape Gazette Viewpoints Feb. 8, from Mayor Newlands' cohabitant, Fran Fallender, "What happened to Newlands' signs?" begs a response.

Many of those missing signs, if not removed by the property owners, were likely placed as a result of intimidation, or in yards where no one was currently residing, and all this is akin to having the dead rise up and vote. Speak of desperation!

This should come as no surprise to those readers familiar with this current mayor's three-year drama. If re-elected, Milton's current Mayor Cliff Newlands will drag Milton residents over "Kamikaze Kliff" - again.

Of the many examples available, I refer to Cape Gazette article, dated Sept. 11, 2012, "Budget Process Offers New Challenges for Milton," where both the town manager and a council member complain of micromanaging from Mayor Newlands.

May the apparent collusion with Chief Phillips regarding the Milton Police budget be regarded as the actions of a transparent and responsible official?

Only the voters in Milton Saturday, March 2, can decide.

I'm sure that I'm not the only voter that looks forward to the 'crash and burn' of Cliff Newlands' re-election gambit by an overwhelming margin, similar to his ill-fated water referendum last Spring.

Milton needs to heal and an honest, responsible person as mayor, who can be relied upon to perform their duty with pride and integrity, will be found in Marion Jones.
