Tension between Planning Board candidates


Planning Board candidate Todd Hamilton has accused his opponent in the April 30 election, incumbent Alexander Whiteside, of abusing his position to block development near Whiteside’s home. Last month, Hamilton provided the town planner with copies of an e-mail from Whiteside about the recently denied Hillside Street development. Whiteside had recused himself and sent the e-mail without the knowledge of his board or Town Planner William Clark. Hamilton said he felt Whiteside was trying to force some of the property to be sold off. Whiteside said he was suggesting a way to settle the matter without a lawsuit, which Hamilton wound up filing later.
