  1. #14 is an important one for me it’s whether or not we want to take part in teh highly damaging and environmentally UN friendly Massive Spraying of Mosquitos. If you read the Upton Twon Crier thoroughly there have been 2 articles done on how devastating this can be for water contamination, for aquatic life, it kills beneficial predators of mosquitos like dragonflies, leaving us dependant on these expensive chemcicals year after year. Think of it as taking massive antibiotics without boosting your immune system! The articles inthe Crier also talk about the MANY alternatives to spraying- that are much more effective and don’t breed super mosquitos resistant to these harmful chemicals.Please vote NO for warrant #14 on whether we should join the Mosquito spraying program. email me for more info on what you can do to protect your kids and property from mosquitos without damaging the eco system.
