Letter: Walsh strikes back

To the Editor, Odd, isn’t it, that Frank Allegretti took it upon himself to rant against me? He was not a candidate, nor is he a member of the town board.

Letter: Joan Walsh just doesn’t get it

To the Editor, I read with utter amazement the comments of Joan Walsh and her runningmates made to The Harrison Review on Election Night when interviewed as the landslide results were being reported. Mrs. Walsh incredulously blamed the amount of election signs for her loss and continued her unwarranted and baseless assault on the Belmont […]
