Sound Advice

Your editorial, “Two Sides of a Coin” [November 7], captured a concern each of us has had regarding the behavior of the new mayor of the Village of Southampton. We have all fielded calls and comments over the past several months from many concerned citizens over process, lack of transparency, treatment of employees and fellow board members, and the lack of respect for the office of the mayor.

While change is good when it is proactive, reactive change can be destructive. We hope the new mayor heeds the comments in your editorial, because your advice is sound.

We also hope that the coin he flips is not the same on both sides.
