I think they're trying to say that this idiotic lawsuit regarding the pool is taking time resources away from the core mission of the Y: supporting women and children in situations of domestic violence.

In other words: The Y can't keep the pool open AND keep the organization afloat.

IMO the pool ladies need to stop thinking about all the fun they have in their warm little pool and sart the thinking about the woman who won't have anywhere to go when she and her kids are trying to escape from someone who abuses them.

[Really? Why what's different now than in the last 50 years? Can't run if your legs don't work. If you think the pool was just about fun then I guess you are clueless. That's ok, not everyone knew the importance of it.

Looks to me like the YWCA has a new demographic and a new mission. Perhaps the old members and supporters of the YWCA need to move on and find other organizations to support and help fund. Leave the good people in the city of Utica to fund and support their own mission.

what was the old mission aand what is the new and who decides on changing a mission? can an organization just change it? Aren't the people associated with an organization being disrespected if you tell them move on because your mission is not ours anymore? Something is strange.

The women who use the pool do not degrade or put down domesitc services. Some even have been victims but they do think their health is also important. Anyone puting words in our mouths should be ashamed of themselves. We know the importance of victims being taken care of but we do also know how important our health is and how quickly it can go down hill without proper services. We suffer from cancer, falls, surgeries, accidents, arthritis and need help. We are willing to help ourselves by getting our health up to par at a warm, large pool and paying for it. What's wrong with that? Before you speak you should do your homework. We feel your pain and you should feel ours. Shame on you too for bashing us. God bless to your family.

We always coexisted with the abuse programs. And we always paid our own way, We have also raised money for the other programs. We don't have any place to go but abuse victims do. There are other places to go for help. There are also chldren that use the pool as well as the Arc. Get your facts straight. There are things going on you don't even know about this is all about money.

Frankly the gist of what the woman meant by, “YWCA mission can best be achieved through unity” was we want your money not your concerns or intrusion. It costs a lot of money to keep those Nine Directors working. Plus they probably have to kick back some bucks to the State organization to pay for “unbiased” women like the lady that wrote that article.

Ms. Brown laid off ten people and hired a new assistant. Where did that money come from? She has less work to do so why was this done?

How about the fact that the City of Utica pays the Y for a program called Senior Swim. Your tax dollars have subsidized that pool for years.

The Board of Directors should be ashamed then they should be removed - President Michelle McCarrick Truett first.
