To the editor,
Bravo to First Selectman Jon Brayshaw on saving Powder Ridge! When others said we should sell, Jon and 90 percent of townspeople said NO! Let’s preserve this piece of land that helps define Middlefield.
Now, with winter just a few months away, we will see skiers back on the slopes in our own town.
Thanks to Jon Brayshaw, a major business has been restored. A win-win-win for our town: expansion of the tax base, creation of jobs and no housing development.
First Selectman Jon Brayshaw, you have my vote on November 5.
