In response to Ms. Monyak's letter to Sitnews yesterday, I agree with her. I think the mail-in ballots are another way to force the issue of consolidation when we've voted against this, HOW MANY TIMES ALREADY? Do we keep voting on consolidation until there is a consolidation?

Since consolidation is up for another vote, why wasn't it on the ballot yesterday instead of as a mail in? Since it cost a stamp to vote, how many more people will vote?

I had mailed my husband's and my vote on Monday with a 39 cent stamp. I was told at the polls yesterday that it was enough postage. It's a good thing we have until the 21st of November to have our votes in; just in case we didn't put enough postage on the envelope. Why wasn't the ballot's envelope postage paid?

One more question:

Am I the only person who has noticed the potholes at the post office are becoming larger, again?
