Being blocked was a troubling sign

Aundré Bumgardner unblocked me from his campaign page just before The Day ran, “Groton City Democratic primary becomes contentious on social media,” (Feb. 27). Thank you for raising concerns, Deputy Mayor Gweneviere Depot, and writing the letter referenced in the article, I believe that is now why I was unblocked.

The question of Aundre’s residency is why I was blocked. It is not personal. The residency requirement is being bent for his personal use. If he lived here, it would be any easy answer, instead he claims it is a personal question and refuses to answer. It needs to be known for voters to decide if they want to vote for a half-time resident as their mayor. If he is gaslighting constituents about his residency and blocking them on social media, what else will it be regarding policies that impact our community that we live in?

We deserve a mayor who is all in and a full-time resident of the City of Groton.
