Reader says Troy politics is confusing

Letter to the Editor,
I have watched what is going on with
the Troy city government, and thought I’d give an opinion. I don’t
live in Troy so maybe it’s none of my business, although I have
lived around Troy most of my life, and do own property in town.
I saw a campaign flyer at the Troy City
Park bulletin board, and was suprised that it was there, and at
what it said.
One thing I noted was that it said the
Troy Police Department is short-handed. I understand that there are
three cops in Troy now, and I remember for years there was only one
cop, and there were probably more people living in Troy back then.
And things were fine.
A lot of other things were said on the
flyer, and it said who to vote for, but it was clearly illegal, as
it had no acknowledgement of who paid for it, etc.
And why it was on city property, I
Overall, It appears this upcoming
election in Troy is essentially about who will run Troy, the city
employees or the people of Troy.
I believe in a positive future for
Troy, as it’s a great town, so we shall see what the voters
