Letter: Praise for Roy, Scarborough councilors

I would like to publicly thank the chairwoman of the Scarborough Town Council, Judith Roy, for the way she handled the Jan. 5 public hearing on parking at Higgins Beach.

The measures she took to restrain the continued unsubstantiated vilification of the Surfrider Foundation as well as the sweeping accusations against Maine’s reputable surf community were noticed and very much appreciated. It showed the concerted effort that the council as a whole is making to sift through the prejudice of a small group of people to uncover the true facets of this complex issue.
