(1980 Blast from the Past) “Sanfordgate: Shameful Manipulation”
A shame that this didn’t come up when Bradford Littlefield and John Tuttle, running for SD 3, were recently interviewed. But it is interesting to note that Sanford’s charter draft discussions “touched a nerve” earlier this year:
… the most heated debate was among the commission members themselves, led by Margaret Trowbridge, who accused the commission of driving useless changes, breaking with tradition, and trying to take control of town government away from the public.
“I’m telling the truth, dammit!” Trowbridge shouted over the protests of commission member and Town Councilor Brad Littlefield, who chaired the meeting in absence of chairman Robert Stackpole and vice chairman Jonathan Mapes. Commission member Gerry Gay was also absent.
Here is a look back into Bradford Littlefield’s 1980 activities, also involving Sanford’s charter.
