Letter: Different standards
Mr. Norman asks what rule or law he has violated by inserting his obvious agenda onto official town business. The answer is simple: he has not! If, however, he were held to the same ethical standards of duly elected public servants, he would be in violation of the appearance of impropriety. Clearly, he would never place himself in a position of being censured or regulated by those higher standards. Sadly for Mr. Singer and the Appointments and Ordinance Committee, they ARE CHARGED WITH ADHERENCE to the aforementioned ethics and are in open violation.
By their questionable actions, the committee has raised many objections from their constituents and have, by definition, created the appearance of impropriety, open and shut. Having foolishly done so, they are clearly in violation and deserve censure. Mr. Norman, on the other hand, not so much!
