You must be referring to the Romano annex on the side of the library.

Funny. They do love to plaster their name over everything. It's Italian. WASPs usually dedicate it to anonymous. They'll learn in the next generation. Or not.

Just to remind everyone what this thread is about. Tyksinski has supported Linda Romano's Library mis-management for too long. Time to get Pat out so we can get Linda Roman out of the Library.

The NH Library is becoming the joke of central NY under her so called leadership.

It doesn't matter how great a guy Eugene Romano he is. His daughter Linda is running down the New Hartford Library through her incompetence and indifference. The only reason the Town Board hasn't asked for her resignation is because she hides behind the Romano name.

Can anyone name one positive thing she has done for the New Hartford Library that would justify her continuing in office as Library Trustee President?

Linda Romano's accomplishments so far:

-Knowingly submitted a grossly overblown $1,000,000 budget to the people of of New Hartford that would have resulted in yet another tax increase. Result: rejected by voters of New Hartford. FAIL

- Threatened the people of New Hartford with draconian cuts to library hours and services if they dared to reject her million dollar budget. Result: FAIL

- Allowed then Library Director Hans Plembeck to submit a falsified required document to the NY State Government. Result: FAIL

- Allowed then Director to knowingly use the library's security cameras to spy on library patrons. Result: FAIL

- Encouraged discord among Library Trustees by encouraging them to turn on two of their own. Result: FAIL

- Actively encouraged resigning Library Trustees to publicly blame fellow Trustee Ed Wiatr for their resignations. Result FAIL

- Support Library Employee Roy Senn to use the NH Library name and image in his blog to criticize Donna Donovan, the Observer Dispatch, Library Trustee Ed Wiatr, NH Town Councilman Don Backman, Town Supervisor Pat Tyksinksi and numerous Town residents who were perceived not to support the NH Library enough

- Encouraged Library Employee Roy Senn to use his Library Tortoise blog to actively campaign against Town Supervisor Pat Tyksisnki's reelection campaign as well as Town Councilman Don Backman's election campaign. Result: FAIL

- Gave away $16,000 in taxpayer money as a retirement gift to former Director Hans Plembeck all the while admitting giving him the money was against NH Library Policy. Result FAIL

- After giving away $16,000 in taxpayer money to a former library employee Romano has the audacity to cry poverty that she doesn't have enough money to run her library. Result FAIL

- Voted for the Library to continue to post over 64 grotesque signs all over the library's magazine racks in order to guilt NH residents into supporting a massive library budget increase. Result: The Library's magazine racks look like trash and it has made the NH Library the laughing stock of the Mohawk Valley. FAIL

- Ineptly manages the Library budget. Result: Library under performs in providing quality service at a reasonable cost. Also, Linda's Library is outclassed by other local Libraries like Waterville that do much more with less money (Observatory, Solar arrays, full magazine racks). FAIL

So why is Linda Romano allowed to continue as Library Trustee President? What has she done right?

Suffice to say, I would be rather disappointed. The cat and mouse game she plays with Ed and Kathy is pretty entertaining. I'm not sure what scandal could top it. Then again, I can't wait for their next season of conspiracy theories. I agree with them 100%, I'm just not sure what their end game is here. It seems that no matter how hard the dynamic duo tries, they just don't seem to succeed at anything but generating controversy. It's simple, the rich will always get richer and the poor will always get poorer. Their well-intended efforts are divisive and counter-productive to progress, even if that means it needs to be subsidized by the masses for the benefit of a handful. Time to all bury the hatchet and walk away into the sunset once and for all.

Cat mouse game she has played with Kathy and Ed? You act like Romano is some brilliant political player. The truth is she has made a complete fool of herself, made the Romano name synonymous with corruption and incompetence and has made the NH Library the butt of jokes through out the entire region. Maybe she can move to Jupiter Florida with other NH has beens like Earle Reed and reminisce of the good old days.

I would not go so far to suggest brilliance. In fact, I would say ego driven but so are those pursuing her. So, what makes them any different? BTW: ECR is running Utica Boilers again!

Linda Romano's ego is immense. She will have to be dragged kicking and screaming out the Library. She believes that the NH Library Trustee Presidency is hers by birth right no matter how bad she screws it up:

Just look at this press release on the newly constructed annex:

"The ceremonial groundbreaking for the Jeanne L. Romano Library Annex took place on June 30, 2006 in the library garden. It was perfect summer morning and the garden was at its summer best.

The ceremony was well attended by local dignitaries, board members, staff, and most importantly, members of the community who best represent the reason for the expansion of the New Hartford Public Library.

The guests of honor, F. Eugene Romano and his family, were there in force to stand in for Jeanne, a wife, mother, and grandmother, and a lover of books. The new annex could not be more aptly named, and the New Hartford library community will benefit greatly from the support of the Romano family."

I can't believe the arrogance of the the Romano family. Generously "donating" this money to the library for them is not about helping the community but bringing prestige to the Romano name. Its just one big ego trip for them: "Hey look at us and our Noblesse oblige!"

Real generosity would have been done quietly and not blowing their own horn from the rooftops. The ironic thing is that Linda Romano's inept mis-management of the library is undoing any goodwill the Romano name had in New Hartford.

And your surprised? Linda is all about aggrandizing herself. This is what she does. She doesn't care about anything that doesn't impact her. She is not a philanthropist in any sense of the word. She is an advertiser for the Romano brand.

Sadly, accurate. She craves recognition, is desperate to be beloved by the community and attempts to buy her way in to society that will never accept her on equal terms. She is so delusional.

There are delusional outspoken people for sure regarding this issue but it ain't Romano. I would lean toward the civic rebel group that constantly stirs the pot to archive there own sense of holy glory. It is so old. Year after year they peddle this nonsense. And yet no one gives a crap. It's almost as sad as it is funny.

Oops! It looks like someone else needs a civic lesson on why Linda Romano needs to resign. This thread has been burning hot for almost a week and still no one has been able to list any postive contributions Linda Romano made to the New Hartford Library as Library President. The consensus is there: Romano must go.

The more I look at this list the more I am convinced Romano must resign now. The NH Library is becoming the joke of central NY under her so called leadership.

Backmans website has a good column about the library.

I wish I could come up with ideas like that, in fact I'm going to steal it and use it for my own campaign! Just like stealing his idea in the Town Crier ads about quoting the source!!

I'm Richard Deadwood and I approved this message.

elect Backman..... He can then continue to siphon off the income of the rest of the town to subsidize the chadwicks squalor. Sounds like a great deal to me.
