I am an outraged parent and disgusted resident of Dracut.

The selectmen chose to blatantly ignore the close to 1,000 voters who attended Town Meeting asking for a $2.9 million override to be put on the ballot.

All we are asking is that the voters of Dracut get the chance to actually vote on a matter that is very important to many of us. The fact that they are 1) considering changing this dollar amount and 2) did not even set a date for a vote is just beyond belief.

I ask that you please run a thorough article so that the readers of The Sun can be informed about how their elected officials are not even listening to their constituents.
