I am shocked that the selectmen of the town of Dracut have chosen to bypass the legally, and democratically passed town warrant to place a petition for a $2.9 million Prop 2 1/2 override.

This is a flagrant violation of our nation's democratic process and heritage and a slap in the face of every town resident, regardless of where they stand on the issue. We implore the selectmen to honor the oath of office they took when the residents voted them in.

Going behind the backs of our town voters to try and remove an article that was voted onto the ballot in our Town Meeting on June 3 is an inappropriate action and I implore you to help the town of Dracut! The future (our children) are counting on us to give them a chance!
