Our first responders deserve better

Editor of the Reformer:

This letter is regarding the construction of the police and fire project. I say, let's get going on this project. The Brattleboro Selectboard needs to make the decision to start this project before our valued men and women, who protect us, become ill from the toxic exposures and we have a new problem of extra health care costs. The town owes it to our first responders to keep them safe and healthy. The residents of Brattleboro have been dragging their feet long enough. Let's get going and complete this project before the cost gets worse. It's never going to get better. Let us give our brave men and women a great gift this holiday season. Let us trust the Selectboard members that we voted into office. Happy Holidays to all.

Alane Bruce, Brattleboro, Dec. 17
