"I have to say I'm disappointed with the tact that Jeff has taken today,” Helfer responded. “I was with him as recently as last night's legislative meeting and he didn't express any concerns to me at that time."

He also said that the addition of new members is meant to bulk-up the committee entering a key election year where nine town-wide seats are up for grabs.
