Town clerk deserves raise

As a longtime seasonal in the town of Caroga, I am allowed voice but no vote, so here is my concern for good government there.

The work of governing begins with the town clerk. Caroga presently has a best of any anywhere. Linda Gilbert believes she is entitled to a raise in pay. When a town is fortunate enough to have a longtime experienced and accomplished leader, it would not be in the town’s interest to disregard her importance.

It is for those with voting priviledge to decide this needed person’s deserved raise in salary. Linda Gilbert is good government. She is deserving and it would take two to replace all the extra effort that she is happy to do.
