Letter: In Middletown Hypocrisy Reigns

I received the following letter in my email box on Friday, I meant to post it earlier but it’s been a crazy week around the MiddletownMike household.

Dear Editor,

IF hypocrisy was a qualification for leadership the mayor of Middletown would be king of the hill. Hypocrisy exposes the lack of leadership qualities possessed by this man .

The fiasco surrounding the recent proposal for turf fields during the current economic recession is a classic example of the ambiguity that this mayor operates by. Some two hundred plus angry residents packed town hall on successive town meetings and backed down this mayor and the republican majority . The turf field projects were cancelled. They never should have been proposed in the first place during this economic climate.

It is a fact that this majority on the Middletown Township Committee has shown nothing but disdain and disregard for the residents they are supposed to represent .As for leadership qualities ,they are not evident or clearly do not exist as government suffers daily from the incompetence and irresponsibility shown by this group.

It’s nearly May and no budget in place and no willingness to work with the one committeeman that has a clue about how to manage this town’s finances. The reason they won’t work with him… .because he is a Democrat !

He’s qualified to help and he was elected to represent the people of this township . If there is a leader on this township committee it is Sean Byrnes. It is long past time to recognize this fact and allow this man to serve the constituency of Middletown residents that elected him. It is irresponsible to do otherwise !

  1. I applaud Ms. Thorpe again for her willingness to come foward and voice her opinion about the current state of affairs in Middletown. Her astute assessment exposes what has seriously been lacking with the MTC majority which is strong effective governing.She was absolutely correct when she wrote an earlier letter regarding her opposition to the turf field due to our current financial crisis. Something the Mayor finally admitted was a "no brainer".I see no hidden agenda nor any personal gain; just her desire to be a responsible citizen in standing up for what she believes is right.This resident whould like to thank her. And BTW I'm not a relative nor a friend, just an observant resident who is tired of seeing all the personal attacks on her character.
