Editors, Vineyard Gazette:
With all due respect for the journalist who covered the selectmen and taxpayer meeting in Aquinnah, her intentions were right but her quote for my intervention was not correct.
I said, that as someone engaged in peacemaking, I had been hearing, during the meeting, a lot of “we and they” and not “us.” I also thought there was a lot of legal discussion. I also care about and oppose illegal activities.
We have been coming to the Island for 57 years, 40-plus in Aquinnah. I believe that summer residents, year rounders, members of the tribe and town officials have more in common than in conflict. We look forward to enjoying the togetherness for years to come.
