Featured Letter: Board members make a gutsy call

To the editor:

The approval rating of elected officials is at an all-time low in our country. Not so in Riverhead, after the Town Board meeting regarding the proposed United Riverhead Terminal expansion. All who attended, and those who could not but followed the discussions, are impressed and thankful to the board members for their respectful attention to the concerns of Riverhead citizens and civic groups. They listened, they got it and they were not shy about where they stood.

Their reaction was sensible and gutsy and I am grateful and proud to be a Riverhead homeowner and citizen.

Ann Kromer, Riverhead
