As a lifelong resident, taxpayer, and former selectboard member, I wish to thank Dr. Victor Nuovo for his dedicated and loyal service as a member of the selectboard of the town of Middlebury. It was evident that Dr. Nuovo strived to serve and treat all constituents with respect, kindness and professionalism. However, it is very tragic that he felt compelled to resign due to the vicious witch-hunt that has permeated the town/college proposal since it was first announced.
The UD-3 School Board has a duty to its taxpayers and students (from Middlebury, Salisbury, Bridport, Weybridge, Cornwall, Shoreham and Ripton) to see that their property is used in a way that best serves their needs. Allowing the town of Middlebury to build a rec facility on the Creek Road site clearly is not the best use of that property.
