I am writing this letter in regard to the new town manager of Wilmington.
What was the town thinking when they did this? We are still paying the salary for Scott Murphy, and now have to pay this guy $93,000. Please help the taxpayers understand. He also gets eight weeks vacation to start with two more weeks to come at a later date.
Why did we not start him off at $65,000 or so and work his way up from there? I was always taught that in a job you had to prove yourself then the rewards would come, but I guess that no longer exist. I am very much along with a lot of other taxpayers upset about this.
I know people that have worked in the town for 25 to 30 years and don’t get eight weeks paid vacation. Why did the selectboard think it was necessary for him to start out with this package? I think that all the selectmen in town should give up their positions because they obviously can’t make the correct decisions and run this town properly.
Sincerely, a very concerned tax payer
