Jones Library needs property from Historical Society for preferred expansion
I always love it when somebody accidentally hits reply all and sends a telling message they think is only going to a very few like minded obstructionists.
Take former Jones Library black sheep Trustee Carol Gray for instance, who just sent a message to all 200+ members of the privately owned Town Meeting listserve.
Anybody who pays attention to Town Meeting issues -- which unfortunately does not include the vast majority of Amherst voters -- knows full well the plan is afoot to stop the Jones Library expansion/renovation right at the starting gate by denying them the ability to purchase land next door from a willing, highly respected, seller.
And as Carol so gleefully points out, it only takes a one-third super minority to kill development, no matter how reasonable it is. Reason #1 for terminating Town Meeting.
