Dear Editor,

I have read with interest the reaction of the only Democrat member of Roxbury's Town Council regarding his appointments to committees.

I recently retired after over 40 years in senior leadership roles in both public and private sectors. I have always found that responsibility is earned through proving one's self through team work, due diligence, and sustained accomplishments of responsibilities already given.

More success gets one more responsibility.

I believe that the Town Council has given Councilman Kline, this year, several committees to provide him the opportunity to show his ability to accept and contribute to the success of those committees. My feelings are that before he complains about what he has been given he should show his commitment to do the very best job of what responsibilities he has been given.

All committee assignments are important to Roxbury and should be treated as such.
