promised I have been writing articles in The Emmitsburg
Dispatch each month to inform residents of town matters.
Each month I take it upon myself to place an article in the
paper on subjects that I think residents would like to know
more about. This month I am offering a way for the residents
to be involved in deciding what town matter may appear in my
article. I want to change how I decide what information to
write an article about, starting next month (March 2003).
What I need from the residents is for you to provide me with
a specific question to answer each month. Your question will
appear as part of the article; your name does not have to be
included if you prefer the question be placed anonymously.
I have only a few specific
guidelines for you to follow if you wish to have your
question considered as part of an article.
- Your question is to be submitted
- Your question must be a question.
This is not an opportunity to write a letter/statement to
the Mayor that can not be answered properly.
- Include you name and address with
each question submitted, even if you want to remain
anonymous to the public.
- The question can not be offensive
Questions can be emailed to me at
or they may be hand delivered, or mailed, to the Town Office
located at 300A S. Seton Ave, P. O. Box 990.
If you submit a question and it does
not appear in The Emmitsburg Dispatch, don't assume your
question was rejected. Due to the need to limit the amount
of space I take up in The Emmitsburg Dispatch, I may need to
save your question for a future article.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the town office, or e-mail
me at firstname.lastname@example.org
