To the Editor:
Reading about the mismanagement of our Board of Assessors is jaw-dropping and hair-raising. When there is a law (town/state/federal), our democratically and legally appointed representatives are required to respect those laws regardless of personal beliefs.

That someone believes the law “penalizes small businesses” or “is not a good system” or “is outdated” or “creates I’ll will” or isn’t “cost-effective” does not matter. It truly is “a broken system” when our town representatives choose to disregard state law.

There is a process for changing laws we disagree with; ignoring them is not one.
