Opinion: Is saving $15,000 worth a man’s life?

Aug 23, 2022

To the editor:

I hope everyone in District 2 reads the recent article on Fire Chief Greg Edgcomb saving a life at the Allen's Neck Friends Meeting Clambake. It was his quick thinking and experience that saved that gentleman's life.

Two members of the Prudential committee want to hire a new chief to save $15,000.

177 residents voted to pay the chief and keep him. How much is a human life worth? $15,000?
