I’m responding to the article on Sept. 23, “Readfield petitioners’ ordinance denied spot on ballot.”

After attending the Select Board meeting on Sept. 21, I was surprised to see and hear the two new board members vote to put what appears to be an improper ordinance on the November ballot.

The board’s chairwoman reported that four attorneys clearly recommended that this ordinance not go on the ballot.

In my opinion, it shows that these two members are on the board with their own agendas. Why would we not follow legal advice given to us from multiple attorneys? This certainly shows that they are not there to represent the entire town and people of Readfield.
