Bethlehem: One final vote on the landfill? Really?

To the Editor:

In the October 4 Caledonian-Record, Cliff Crosby wrote about his idea to end the landfill fight in Bethlehem. Actually, it could be over right now if he weren’t currently out getting signatures to call for another vote.

Does he and others forget that the town voted against the Casella-operated landfill (NCES) in one way or another, including votes against expansions 18 or 19 times over the years? Really, it’s so many times it’s hard to keep track. Do people forget that we voted down expansion in 2017, when 933 people came out to vote. We were forced to vote on expansion AGAIN in 2018. That time we voted louder against expansion when 1,120 people came out to vote.

Whatever happened to taking “No” for an answer? Mr. Crosby shows a tremendous disrespect for the wishes of the majority of the town’s voters.
