The O.D. In Sunday's paper, today, published a Town resident's Letter to the Editor. NOW the readers can see/read for themselves how under handed this group of public officials have been acting for such a long time.
Mr. Wiatr, I want to thank you for your persistence, integrity, and attempt yo make this library accountable to the people who pay to keep it open.

To conspire to publicly smear your fellow trustee? Really Ms. Romano? How unbecoming of a person of your stature in the community. Running a library should be easy why are you making it hard? Reluctantly, I must also agree that New Hartford needs a new library president. All of this negative press is embarrassing our town. Why would anyone want to invest in New Hartford when we can't even run a library without looking like a bunch of fools?

Yes. The running of the library is the center of the universe. Get a grip on yourself. Check in for a session with the head shrinker.

All of this coming out after Library Board President pushed through a $16,000 going away gift to the x-library director using OUR money not hers. Where there is smoke there's fire right now there is a lot of smoke at the library.

In my opinion, the town of New Hartford needs to take over control of the Library. The town should provide no more funding until:

1. the property and the library itself is turned over to the town of New Hartford
2. the town of New Hartford takes over control of the Library board.

If this is not palatable to the current leadership then they have the opportunity to continue to operate the Library but without town of New Hartford taxpayer monies...

No...I think Ed Flemma and Ed Wiatr should stay on the board. The west if them voted in favor of giving former library director Hans Plembeck $16,000 in taxpayer money as a retirement gift.

The town could select who they want on the board. Therefore, some of the current board members could remain if that is what town leadership decides. Additionally, the town government and town residents need more transparency as to how library funding and our taxes are being spent....

One thing everyone can agree on: Linda Romano can no longer continue as the library president under any circumstances.

No. Stop showing favoritism. They all have there own agendas. Clean slate. Dump the two above as well. There's a taint on them too. Start fresh.

Yogi,

To say that trustees Flemma & Wiatr have their own agendas is without merit. One only needs to listen to the recently taped library board meeting which can be found at Www.newhartfordnyonline.blogspot.com .

These two trustees have no hidden agenda but do want accountability and transparency. Do you not want the same?

Throwing out the baby with the bath water is not the answer. Bigger question to ask is "Where the hell has Pat Tyksinski been - all this time? His silence and support of the Romano peccadillos needs further inquiry - don't you think?

Its interesting that no one is calling for Linda Romano to remain as Library Trustee President. I guess even her supporters are leaving the sinking ship

Who do we contact on the town board to file a complaint against Linda Romano? I live on a fixed income and I can't afford to support this kind of waste anymore.

Move to Utica then. They take all kinds of cheap people. They'd love to have you. All your money can goto paying the union salaries.

Linda does a good job. She's been there for years and knows what's going on. These other guys bitching and moaning are on a power trip. It's been their Modus operandi the whole time.

Linda just wasted $16,000 as gift to someone who isn't even a library employee? That's my tax money. If Romano promised this guy that money then she should pay it and not take it out of my pocket. People aren't buying this idea that we have a nice library so Romano can do what she wants. She's toast along with all of you that voted to give our money away. We have had enough!

I just went to the Town of New Hartford website and there is a page for Citizen Boards, Citizen & Advisory Committees:
http://www.newhartfordtown.com/NHcommittees.h...

The page identifies two people to contact for the Library:
Liaison to Town Board: Reynolds
Co-Liaison to Town Board: Woodland

The following page provides Email addresses for these two individuals (David Reynolds and for Rich Woodland):
http://www.newhartfordtown.com/nhsupersoffice...

I hope others who are concerned about this issue take the time to contact the town board...
