The voice of experience

Thank goodness for Fran Monroe.

Time and again, she has spoken to the town council at the bi-weekly meetings to chastise others in Gray for rude behaviour.

And who better to point out inappropriate behaviour than the former town councilor herself, whose rude and inappropriate behaviour ultimately cost the town nearly $16,000?

After town employees complained about Monroe's interference with the work of town employees, the sitting council censured her for her actions. She promptly sued the town, losing the first time, then suing again and eventually losing. But her suits cost the town $16,000 to defend itself.

So please listen to Ms. Monroe when she tells you to be nice. She knows what she's talking about!
