(unedited; all comments included)

The terrible conditions of the streets, especially Canton Avenue.

This could probably be tied into budget issues, but the condition of our roads is embarrassing.

Nosey neighbors.

Condition of the roads.

Coherent 40B policy.

Selectmen.

Stalled resolution to Gov. Stoughton Land issue.

Not enough activities for teenagers to hang out safely.

Management.

Too many yuppies trying to change the town.

Safety in east Milton, police.

White privilege is rampant in this town.

40 b developments.

A culture of dishonesty and lack of integrity in the TA, and heads of DPW, Planning and MPD.

Generally ineffective local government with poor communication broadly to residents.

Seemingly widespread support for Chief Well’s kneejerk decision to run for selectman, after deciding to break the contract he signed for more $ and blaming it on the selectmen who acted fiscally responsible.

Road conditions.

All of the above!
