Dear Editor, In last week’s editorial, the Editor of The Groton Herald once again advances his narrative of an omnipotent town manager who runs amok with no guidance or oversight from the Board of Selectmen. He also displays his confusion by referencing a citation, “Section 3-2-3 of the Groton Charter” which in fact is not more »
I am excited that we have finally moved into our new facilities. During the moving process, I have received many comments. Most of them have been positive, but some of them have indicated a concern that our new facilities are going to result in higher rates for our customers.
I haven’t a clue as to what possessed John Ellenberger to write the article in the June 26, 2015 edition of the Groton Herald titled “The Data Scientist: Does Lost Lake Pay 40 percent more in taxes?”. Not only is his database off base but his “scientific” approach has no basis in reality.
The Groton-Dunstable Regional School Committee is looking for three residents of Groton or Dunstable to serve on the recently created Public Communications and Community Engagement Advisory Committee, along with three members of the School Committee and one representative of the school administration.

We strongly support Jack Petropoulos for re-election to the Board of Selectmen. Jack has been labeled a troublemaker by some, including some of his fellow Selectmen. Like the young boy who spoke the honest truth in the fable of the Emperor’s New Clothes, Jack’s truth-telling is exactly what we, the citizens of Groton, need on more »
In reply to a recent letter to the Editor claiming my actions to be the source of the discord at the Board of Selectmen, and offering a tale to his neighbors of my “going to Planning Board” as an example, I would like to provide a bit of perspective: As a member of the Planning more »
Much has been made about a need to bring unity to our town government and to end the discord and bring harmony.
