Dear Main Street,

What is it about our community that when a controversial issue comes along, anonymous flyers and letters appear?

If someone, or a group of people feel strongly enough about an issue to spend money on a mailing and do an additional email distribution, why don't they have the courage to sign their name? Perhaps leaving off the names of those behind it on the mailing may have been an oversight; leaving it off the email was deliberate.

The issues of zoning and future growth in Greenwich are as intertwined as they controversial. What our community needs is an open and frank discussion leading to a consensus. The use of a blind email address as contact information is a sign of cowardice and shows a total lack of respect for democracy as well as for your neighbors.
