Credit where credit due on veterans housing


To the Editor:

I wrote a letter in response to the Oct. 26 editorial regarding veterans (“Veterans continue to need our help”). I indicated that I thought the Oak Bluffs affordable housing committee (which had been discussing the subject since 2020) and the taxpayers of Oak Bluffs should have been included along with the agencies and individuals who were highlighted. 

My letter was not included in the Nov. 2 edition, which did have an article in the News in Brief section describing a fundraising event for the veterans project. As I mentioned in my October letter, I believe that both the affordable housing committee and the taxpayers of Oak Bluffs should be recognized for their continued support of affordable housing endeavors that impact the financial status of the town.
