Springfield to hold goal-setting session

In about a month, the Springfield Select Board will try something new.


  1. Another goal session to form more committees that will rehash what all the other committees have talked about.
    If Springfield doesn't know the goals that have been gone over and over for the last decade, than I don't think there is any hope of getting anything done now.
    How about going to the latest Town Report and looking that over. There must be @8-10 organizations that have given their report about what needs to be done and what has been done.
    IMO this is just another stall tactic by a do nothing Town Government.

    Well jeez, I hope the bill for this hired facilitator doesn't show up on my tax bill next year. I suspect there will be local volunteers willing to help the select board shape up without charge.

    The article has an error in it. I did not say that a facial tor would help avoid the kumbaya crap, I expressed concern that some facilitators engaged in a bunch of kumbaya crap and the second Schoolboard retreat went better because they did not use a facilitator, but rather the Supt. This could be a very helpful activity, or it could be a complete waste of time. Hopefully, it will not be the latter.

  4. Aimless is as aimless does!
