I received a piece of campaign literature for John Gilkey on my door over the weekend and would like to point out some downright “untruths” on it. On this piece it states Mr. Gilkey as “protecting south end residents as development moves into planning & construction.”
Gilkey has NOT protected the south end residents. I was told that he did attend a rally that took place in the summer. I, as well as Mr. Gilkey, attended several meetings where this development topic was heavily discussed. He has had MANY opportunities to speak out against this development and speak out for these people of the south end whose property the Town is going to take, but he NEVER has.
Actually, have you seen or heard ANY of these democrat candidates speak up for these citizens? I certainly have not.
This same piece of literature states that “I’ve hired a new police chief, new street commissioner, and new redevelopment director.” These new hires were a combined effort of others on the town council, not just Gilkey.
