  1. Welcome aboard. You've had the tour, learned the names of the employees, negotiated contracts with no problem. Now lets start hearing the plans to "move forward". If the word of positive actions isn't getting out, then better communications is in order. Are the selectmen's meeting minutes being posted on the town's web site in a timely manner? Is Sapa putting the meetings up on line quickly? Could there be a short video or web posting from the town manager every week to keep us posted? Good news would be very welcome!!!

  2. I wonder if Bob Forguites would attribute the union contracts to the new Town Manager, and why only comments from two board members?

  3. Mr. Yennerell, wishing you good luck going forward! What is the plan for the blight of these so called sober houses. Most of these places no doubt are not up to code and look like junk shops around the yards and on porches.

  4. Springfield has cast its lot on yet another caretaker town manager that will achieve little in the manner of economic development for the town. It was obvious from his record, and has become more so by his comments, that the current occupant of the Town Manager's office is not seeking increased job responsibility but rather seems prematurely focused on retirement and associated leisure pursuits. Don't expect the economy to burn any brighter is Springfield, because your town has yet again hired a manager with little spark.

  5. Amen 5:57! Believed impossible, Springfield continues to become further depressed. Condemned buildings continue to rot. Additional commercial buildings are now unoccupied joining the blight. Several dozen more jobs have been lost. Hunter ruins more neighborhoods with his addicts, pedophiles and sociopaths while pocketing tens of thousands. All contributing to ever falling real estate values. Only a fool would consider relocating here. Meanwhile, Yennerell has proven as useless as our SRDC director at curtaining the disease of liberalism.

    Bottom line, for those that work and struggle to get ahead, Springfield, VT is a horribly poor choice to raise a family or start a small business and Yennerell has done NOTHING to improve that fact.

      So, why are you still living here?

  6. 0907 am. Why living here? Because the neighborhood we've lived in for 50+ yrs looks awful and we can't sell. Can't sell if nobody's buying.

    1. Exactly right! Those of us that mistakenly believed in Springfield's ability to thrive again are screwed. Beyond that, we are profoundly embittered at those responsible for allowing Springfield to become a Mecca for selfish, parasites! Rest assured, they will be publicly called out at every opportunity. With special recognition to Bill Morlock, and Will Hunter.

    Well, nothing's going to change in your neighborhood unless the neighbors decide to make it happen. Why not decide what you'd like to see improved and talk to them about improving it? Otherwise, all you can do is stew, which must not be very enjoyable.

  8. Hey guys, Yennerell is a town manager, not a 'town father'. He functions as the executor of the instructions of, and with the guidance of, the Select Board - which in tern is composed of members elected to serve the citizens of Springfield. Shall we get our responsibilities straight?

    [I admit it, I haven't vetted the candidates for the job nearly as well as I ought to have. Mea culpa.]
