I want to applaud the Board of Selectmen for voting against the selling of dope in Ridgefield. During all my 32 years in Ridgefield, our leaders have fought to keep the scourge of drugs out of Ridgefield.

The governor and the state legislature, including our state representative and state senator, are no longer partners with us in the war on drugs.

They are enthralled with making sure former drug dealers and users can now sell dope to our children because they believe the drug dealers and users were victims. They were not victims. They were criminals.

This November, and in all future elections, make it your priority to vote for people who want to protect us, not destroy our town.
