Letter: Susan B Anthony Statue Should Be Placed at Town Hall

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

It was very nice to see the planned park revision for the park by McDonald's in Adams. It appears a lot of work went into developing the plans. Will miss the gazebo. It was great to,have the small concert there.

However, I am really concerned about hiding the Susan B. Anthony statue there where few people traveling through Adams will be able to see the great statue of their native daughter.

Although many people think McKinley was a great president, Susan B. Anthony had a much great impact on our lives and country and deserves a more prominent location. My suggestion is to place it in front of Town Hall. What a beautiful back drop it would be. Everyone that lives or travels through Adams would be able to see it, especially when lit at night. It should be noted that parking is also available.

Town Hall is the center of our government and represent the qualities that Susan B. Anthony stood for: Freedom for all and the right to vote for all.

Chairman David Rhoads gave the update at Wednesday's meeting and said there are now, once again, active cases for the first time in months.
"It is kind of unsettling because we were like three months without a case," he said. "We don't know if they are travel-related or what so it is kind of hard to know how to respond."
Just last month, the Board of Health reported that there were no known cases in Adams.
