It is easy to give a bloody nose to an elected representative in a letter to the editor because it is delivered from the safety and comfort of home. But when things are going as they should, no one says anything. We sit quietly waiting for the next gaffe that is sure to come.
In a break from this long tradition, I want to thank the trustees of the Village of Westhampton Beach who now have a responsible budget that treats each tax dollar as if it were their own. At a time when oil and gas prices are soaring, our residents can thank the Westhampton Beach trustees who prepared the budget this year.
