Your Voice: Disappointed in council member’s festival remark

TO THE EDITOR:

As a longtime (30+ years) resident of Farmington I am very disappointed in Mr. LaRussa’s comment, “I’d rather have a bunch of dissatisfied residents with the event than not have the event at all”.

I had rather hoped that the residents had a little more importance than has been demonstrated by that comment. Again, residents take a back seat to the wishes of the DDA and the C of C (Chamber of Commerce). Very disappointing.
