Four very capable people are running for the two available Falmouth Town Council seats. Their differences are not in their abilities but in their philosophy. Should government be to provide the basic services – police and fire protection; good, safe roads; outstanding schools; a safe harbor – or should government provide more? Do we pass ordinances that we believe are for the betterment of society or do we educate and try to persuade for our beliefs? Do we spend our tax dollars on the needs or on the wants?
I believe it is important that your councilors listen to you, the citizens, and vote for policies that will help the town, but have minimum invasion in your life. Signs for Russ Anderson and Bryan Dench are in front of my house because I believe they each have the best philosophy. They get my vote.
Faith Varney, Town Council vice chairwoman
