Vol. I No. 09 12/1/2020
Opinion: Dialogue, not Lawsuits
by Steffi Fletcher
The venerable Stockbridge Bowl Association is suing the town again so that, in essence, those of us who pay taxes in Stockbridge and who are also members of the Association are suing ourselves. I myself, as a member of the Association and as a taxpayer of Stockbridge, do not value this misuse of money.
Besides being willing to waste the taxpayers' money, the leadership of the Association has treated representatives of the town with notable disdain, most recently in the Stockbridge Bowl Association newsletter and at annual summer meetings. Because both the town and the Association want what is best for the lake, a new approach is needed, one characterized by respect.
