>I just walked throughout the door after attending tonight’s Middletown Library Board of Trustees meeting, at this point in time 10:47pm, the meeting is still ongoing. I couldn’t stand the BS any longer and I had to leave.
The final nail which was hammered into my head, that made me leave the proceedings was the exchange that was taking place between Board of Trustee members and Mayor Tony Fiore. In a moment of frustration at being questioned about the legality of whether or not theTownship could request funds from the Library and exactly how much money was available for the taking, Fiore said to library Director Susan O’Neal, “With all due respect, you don’t know what we know!”
That statement blew my mind, I had to leave, I could take the BS any longer.
One fact that everyone should know about tonight’s meeting, regardless of whether or not the Library board gives funds to the Township it WILL NOT effect the need to layoff of members of the Middletown Police Department or the other 16 people that have been targeted to loose their jobs. As a matter of fact, if funds do not come from the Library to help plug Middletown’s budget defect MORE people will need to be laid off, not just the previously announced 26 individual.
