Addressing March 25 letter "Independently Probe the Thames Valley Communications Sale Debacle."

The letter's questions have been answered in multiple public forums. Continuing to make implications regarding the city mayor's character serves no purpose but the political, as evidenced by the writer neglecting to mention that he is running against Mayor Galbraith.

The writer calls into question the character of the mayor. Mayor Galbraith has acted with strength of character and openness. She stood before an auditorium full of citizens and fielded many questions regarding TVC, and listened to implications regarding her character. She appeared before the RTM at that body's request and fielded further questions. This presentation was televised live and is online.

Dr. G, as she is fondly referred to by former students, is well regarded in the educational community and by her regional peers in local government. Her patience, ability to listen and calm demeanor, all assets for a community leader, were honed during her years as an educator.

Marian Galbraith serves with strength of character and integrity. The City of Groton is fortunate to call her mayor. I hope voters support her as she seeks to continue her service to the community.
