To the editor:
Wow, a special invite from the city manager. I'm so honored.
I do have to question your timing though.
I write about you being an overpriced city servant for the poorest city in New Hampshire, no invite.
I write about the lack of city service (snow removal and lack of street sweeper). No invite.
But I write about the fiasco you caused by removing the city nurse, I get an invite.
I do have to decline your offer at this time for I feel that it is but a fishing expedition on your part to try and find out where I heard my rumor.
I may take you up on the offer in the future.
Anyways, I hear even if I went and asked questions, the answers I would get are "I can't answer that right now" or "I'll get back to you on that." So I'll save you the embarrassment.
Anyways, you don't seem to understand: I don't care how it gets done, only that it gets done.
Whether it be snow removal or street sweeper it is an embarrassment to the city.
I drive through North Conway, their streets are getting swept. I drive though Gorham, their streets are getting swept. I drive back to Berlin, not yet.
I'm a retiree on fixed income who has COPD, who is getting tired of my taxes constantly going up and not receiving the city services I am paying for.
It's the same thing every year. I moved back here 11 years ago, and thought that surely Berlin knows how to handle the different seasons. Still hoping.
