|Candidate not informed on town government|
Letter to the Editor:
In the March 5, 2014, edition of this publication, the editor saw fit to publish a letter from Kara Vander Bloomen that I and others saw as a free campaign ad.
Ms. Vander Bloomen stated that we should vote for her “if you want to shake things up and start making improvements.”
I would like to state that Ms. Vander Bloomen has not spoken to any town of Lincoln official directly about all of the problems that she feels exist in the town. Instead, she has seen fit to run a campaign on a social media site on the Internet that casts doubt on
the town of Lincoln’s elected officials’ ability to manage the town’s affairs.
Ms. Vander Bloomen’s major dissatisfaction seems to be with the conditions of the roads in the town of Lincoln. After reading her postings on the website, the problem seems to be that people are driving too fast for conditions if they are sliding through or into intersections.
We live in an area where winters can be harsh and the posted speed limits are based on blue sky and dry road conditions. Some days, 10 mph is too fast. Slowing down is a very simple and cost-free solution to the problem.
Other comments and insinuations made by Ms. Vander Bloomen on the social media website indicate to me that she has absolutely no idea how a town government runs. Ms. Vander Bloomen has attended only two meetings of the Lincoln Town Board, and both of those meetings were since she has decided to run for office. One certainly cannot comprehend the functioning of a town based on a total of 40 minutes of meetings with limited agendas.
The town of Lincoln has lost a great deal of town experience with the departure of Leon Kukanich from our board. Ms. Vander Bloomen’s opponent, Bill Hassey, has a long and proven record of town government experience.
Town of Lincoln
