  1. Don’t mean to be pejorative, but WCA TV candidate coverage was a disaster and the total loss of audio just when the question of Town development was being discussed
    was particularly disconcerting. Why was there no backup? And no visual announcement of a problem.

    But to the good – we got to use our lip reading skills. Did he really say “I want to
    fill the rough patch of Waverly between Orchard and Belmont”?

    This experience confirms Watertown ranks right up there with Riddle Corners, Iowa
    and Stinking Springs, Idaho in ability to provide reliable local programming.

    I’m sorry we cannot do better, but no longer expect anything of quality from our
    Town resources and associated Town government.
