Wow!! The NH Library fiasco just got better:
In emails FOILed by New Hartford On Line, it turns out that NH Library Board President Linda Romano aggreed with Board member Virginia Emmert that $1,000,0000 was too much to ask for but decided to go ahead anyway.

That's outragous! Linda Romano knew she was asking for too much money from NH taxpayers but didn't care. How elitist!

It gets even better: The emails also show that Tim Trainor, who was the NH library's PR guy for the vote thought that $1,000,000 wasn't enough and that they should ask for even more $$$.

It aslo turns out that NH Superintendent Bob Nole was knee deep in the mess and fully supported inposing more taxes on NH. Unreal! OK OD,start reporting!

So Linda Romano's million dollar tax increase for New Hartford was a shame right from the beginning. And why was Bob Nole involved?

Linda Romano threatened to close the Library another day each week if they didn't get funding. Well, the budget vote failed but the library hours are the same so it was just fear mongering.
Another interesting thing about the emails before the vote is that even Library board members had no clear idea what one million dollars was going to get them.

The Library vote last August was nothing but a big power/money grab but the New Hartford Elites.

The bottom line is that Linda Romano needs to resign now!

Let's vote NO on another budget: The next NH School Budget that has Bob NOle's salary included in it! Bob NOle is the worst leader NH Schools has ever had and he would fit right in at the library!!

Hey, School Board: Replace Bob NOle as Superintendent or NO Budget!!!

I think this will be in the Observer Dispatch sometime in 2013. Donna wouldn't want to piss any of her friends of drinking buddies off, would she?

Sorry Really, you can't laugh this one away. This is big and I can't wait until more damaging emails come out. The comedy of errors for the New Hartford Library Board and Linda Romano just keeps getting better. These emails make all of you look like clueless, elitist fools trying to bilk the taxpayers. Even Donna Donavan won't be able to ignore this embarrassing mess.

This only the tip of the iceberg. Wait until the other emails come out

There another library scandal related to the vote that will come out soon. Trust me, this one will really upset people after they learn what Linda Romano did to get the rechartering vote to pass.

More damaging emails have been released!

Some highlights:

Bob Nole lied when he told the OD that he was unaware that New Hartford School District Bond Attorney was an owner of the 29 Oxford Road properties. However, invoices from an attorney involved with the sale of the property have Linda Romano's name all over it.

Email exchanges between Linda Romano and other library board members Rich Evans and Connie Stevens sound petty and childish. One thing for sure, the Library needs competent, adult leadership.
Shameful

Cagey bunch aren't they? lol As for you Ms. Romano, you're nothing but a spoiled brat. And how smart are you as an attorney at law, to allow yourself and fellow trustees (and Nole)to memorialize conversations that show what a bunch of crooks you all are.

As for the land transaction (swindle), it's a done deal but so is the fact NH taxpayers can now see what you're really about.

Now go ahead with another rechartering attempt ... I DARE YOU!

In emails between New Hartford Library Board Member Rich Evans and Library Board President Linda Romano they were debating on weather or not to publicly destroy the reputaion of another Library Board member.

This same Rich Evans wrote a tearful editoral decrying how all of the negativity caused the "No" vote. What a hypocrite!! It will be very interesting to read in other emails whose reputations Romano and Evans conspired to destroy.

There is much more damaging information to come!One thing for sure: A new rechartering vote is Dead On Arrival

Actually I think that the people of New Hartford are pretty smart. They were smart enough to see through this Library rechartering scam and overwhelmingly vote it down. New Hartford knows what's going on

The boards behavior became more and more bizarre after Wiatar was appointed. The plan to discredit him as a detractor blew up in their faces, rightfully so.

I'm not always a fan of Ed but this time I gotta say good for him.
