Dear Carlisle Mosquito,

First of all, thank you for your great coverage of Carlisle town boards and news! As a League of Women Voters member in Westford, I am jealous at the information your readership receives through the Mosquito! I was very interested to read about the Greystone development off of Cross Street — great coverage, excellent details and site plan.
