Treatment of Rosie is appalling
To the Editor:
I am appalled at the treatment of the Director of the Commission on Aging. This borders on the style of the middle ages to strip a person practically naked in the town square without any facts just say so of an individual.
What do you know for sure was the direction/discussion with Mr. Gill? Why would you hang out this laundry before all the facts were in. As far as the “terrible” amount of money that this supposedly involves, I would bet that the county has spent far more on studies, and studies to study the study, and then a study to study the first lawyer that did the study by a second lawyer to study the lawyer and the study.
Of course there is the money spent on the sheriff fiasco (should you try and get that money back)?
I am also perturbed about the editorial questioning Rosie’s capability of handling a budget. I was unaware that we are able to peruse all the budgets and make comments on how capable one is of handling it. And if you see places for improvement did you do the honorable thing and offer help in the form of volunteering? And/or teaching with your vast knowledge?
As far as the housekeepers go, they do earn every penny. They go into homes and clean up things that have been left that seniors cannot keep up. Would you want to volunteer to clean bathrooms for the elderly that can’t quite make it because of physical limitations or age? Change their bedding because of the same problem so that they can have some nice fresh, comfortable rest? Perhaps you think the seniors don’t deserve that, but I do, and I think you should be in the town square in shackles because I don’t like what you have done. You know that saying about casting the “first stone.” Why don’t you give up your lunch money allotment – it probably will fill in the gap.
