- You failed to mention the $600 fine levied against the PIC board for their shenanigans. You also fail to mention that the PIC board failed to ask their members if they wanted to be a political advocacy organization, or if they wanted their dues to be used for illegal political ads. Sadly many residents trusted PIC and relied on the organization to help in their choices for town commission. That a sitting commissioner, running for office, contributed money to PIC, which was then used to place illegal ads advocating his re-election, is shameful. The PIC board violated the trust of its members. In the case of Erwin Pastor, who lost by fewer than 25 votes, one cannot help but think that the illegal actions by the PIC board subverted the town election. I think that PIC owes the three candidates who were victims of illegal activities from a formerly trusted community organization, deserve a sincere apology from the PIC board members. Who can trust these people again?
