Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

As residents of Chilmark, we were inconvenienced by the closure of South Road last week during President Obama’s vacation. I would be very interested to see an article appear in the Gazette about the actual economic impact on the up-Island businesses due to the road closure. This is important information that should be gathered, interpreted and published for everyone to see. I suspect the President’s visit this year severely affected some of our local businesses.
