Dear Editor:

RE: Erin building up financial reserves, Aug. 29.

What a surprise – an elected municipal councilor hushed for asking questions about a 75% staff turnover rate and failure to properly report severance costs.

If staff turnover rate is 75%, we now have some insight as to the magnitude of those costs. Town councillors can only ask questions about “material presented to the public”. With a rule like this, it’s pretty easy to legitimize censorship of any bad news that this town’s executive administration would prefer to sweep under the rug.
