It's funny that the story about Hyde Park Selectboard made the front page of the paper, I was just in our Town Clerks office on Friday asking questions to our Town clerk and all she could say to me was you need to call Scott Griswald. My answer to her was "Why would anyone want to call Scott and ask him questions, he is one of the men in question. Don't you think that is a conflict of interest? Do you think he will give anyone an honest answer?" Again Moulton said you need to call Scott. As a tax payer in the town of Hyde Park and a life time resident, it saddens me that we have become a town where if your name is so & so you can get away with anything, but if you are just an average Joe, you mean nothing and have no right to say anything. I am sick that Hyde Park is so political with certain issues that go on in that town. Whatever happened to morals, honesty & most of all common sense. I do believe that if these gentleman in question are inocent, they should have come to the tax payers as this is not a Personnel issue they are voted in officals!! With them paying off Mrs. Companga and not going to the taxpayers to clear themselves, to me, makes them guilty, and they should all leave their postions on the selectboard.
