Murray town supervisor welcomes input from residents

Posted 12 April 2021 at 9:50 am


I’d like to thank everyone who came to Thursday night’s Town of Murray work meeting. Despite the Murray Town Board being a “No Show” residents filtered in with genuine interest.

What was to be a Town Board work meeting addressing the complex nature of domestic partner health care coverage, turned into an open forum by a diverse group of citizens openly discussing a variety of topics. It was fantastic, respectful and incredibly productive. Amazing!

Dirk Lammes, our Highway and Water Superintendent, openly discussed his department and the challenges ahead. It’s refreshing to have a knowledgeable, experienced person at the helm willing to share information and listen to the voices around him. Outstanding!

Since the evening turned into such a success, I’m willing to have an evening with the Supervisor every 2nd Thursday of each month. I will make myself available for anyone who has something on their mind to come over and talk without all the formality of a regular Town Meeting. I’m here, I care and we have a lot of work ahead of us.

My mother always said, “Never turn down an invitation.”

Thanks again to everyone who attended for the great evening. It’s the way it should be!
