PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

There is a trivial saying ending with ” keep your eye upon the donut and not upon the hole.”

The Finance Committee has been expertly staffed by a procedure now under fire to make it “more democratic.” The group proposing a “more democratic” procedure seems to have special interests in mind.

The present appointment procedure has appointed a Finance Committee that has kept Harvard from becoming a Stoneham.

And the town auditor, who also serves on the Finance Committee, has uncovered missing town property and a Special Education transaction that certainly warrants a closer look.

The Finance Committee’s laudable performance is my “donut.” The move to “democratize” it is the “hole.”

In my opinion “The Finance Committee ain’t broke, so don’t fix it!”

Very truly yours,

PAUL H. VON LOESECKE

Harvard
