Seek support for Westhampton family

I am writing in support of the letter (“Saddened, horrified by Westhampton decision,” Dec. 5) regarding the situation of that family in Westhampton who cannot move into their new home because of the mistake an official of the town made.

All too often these days, we see people in authority refusing to take responsibility for their actions/mistakes. How can anyone with a conscience not speak up in support of this family who tried to follow all the rules and cross all the “t’s” and dot all the “i’s” and still get left with this appalling situation?

Come on, people. Think about if this were you or a loved one left hanging like this — how would you feel? Let’s do what is right and let the powers that be correct this grievous wrong and get this family in their home where they belong. Let us not let apathy win this resolvable situation.

My heart goes out to this family. The officials and especially the voters in Westhampton need to do what is right, and support this family.
