    New Flag, Old Calendar

    Check out the new American flag in the Town House if you haven't seen it. It flew above the Capitol Building in Washington, and Dave Stacy, Orange's flag expert, set it up perfectly. The flag came certified by our Member of Congress, Annie Custer.

    This made us think that maybe Congresswoman Custer or a member of her staff might be coaxed to attend a Select Board meeting. So we went to her website to see what town meetings she has coming up. Here's what we found: http://kuster.house.gov/congress-in-your-corner/annie-around-the-district. 

    The site is two years out of date. We wrote the Congresswoman's office to suggest they update the site and let us know when she'll be coming anywhere near our neck of the woods. Two months later, we got a letter from Congresswoman Custer's office thanking us for our interest in attending a meeting and offering a link to her website. Which is still two years out of date.

    The Orange website isn't for politics. But our little town deserves a bit more attention from our elected officials, doesn't it? In the future, we'll be keeping track of how well our state and national representatives communicate with Orange and its residents. Email Jay (o.speech@gmail.com) if you have anything you want to say about this.
