Sad St. Johnsbury

To the Editor:

The town of St. Johnsbury should be ashamed. On July 4th this town did not do anything for the town. If you wanted to see or do anything you had to go out of town.

The only people in this town that do their jobs the way they should are the police and fire department. The other ones, all they want to do is spend money that comes out of the townpeople's pockets, not theirs. The people who started this town many, many years ago would not like to see what this town has become.

I remember visiting St. Johnsbury back in the 1950s. You had a lot of people walking and shopping in the stores on Main Street or Railroad Street. Back in the early 1990s we had Rich's and Ames and people got up petitions to keep Wal-Mart out of St. Johnsbury. So Wal-Mart went to Littleton. Now look at how it has grown. If those stores had come to St. Johnsbury it would have helped out with taxes but the big shots don't care about us small people.
