I received Mayor Vincent Francia’s third mailed message in my mailbox on Aug. 31.
Clearly he is trying to convince the community that the council turnover and the lynching of Town Manager Usama Abujbarah is a good thing.

As a class, neither is driven by service to the nation, but by political expediency to protect and enhance their own financial interests.
