Letter to the editor: Vandalism not fair to volunteers

A little over a week ago around the time the Addison Independent was being printed on July 4, several good citizens of the town had to go down to the railroad tracks to retrieve the flower boxes that were thrown from the pedestrian bridge running from the National Bank to the U.S Post Office area and then had to refill and replant the flower boxes.
The town has spent a lot of time and money making the downtown area attractive and safe during the last couple of years while the tunnel project is under construction. The selectboard and the town have hired a project manager to keep everyone informed of plans for completing the project and minimizing the impacts on the downtown businesses.
We all need to rally around the businesses negatively impacted by the tunnel project, keep our business local and keep a good positive attitude. And please do not destroy the hard work of our volunteers, our town employees and good citizens who are trying to make the Downtown look attractive during this time period.
