A sweet Aquinnah alternative


To the Editor:

A massive void was created when Chilmark Chocolates closed its doors for good. How cool would it be for the tribe to build a high-quality chocolate factory, instead of a casino? It could sell to the public like Chilmark Chocolates did, it could sell wholesale to businesses on the Island and off, and it could have a website and ship worldwide. The “factory” would probably create more jobs than a casino, and they would be good, respectable jobs for the local youth in and out of season. I think Aquinnah Chocolates would be a better alternative for the near and distant future for the tribe, for the town of Aquinnah, and for Martha’s Vineyard.
