Great news - thank you Clinton voters!

I'm hoping this increase in hours is not because the Charter Revision Commission is discussing formation of a committee to oversee private entities recieving substantial funding from the the taxpayer.

This is NOT an "increase in hours". The library is REINSTATING hours that were cut because of the budget cut for the 2011-12 fiscal year, just as the article says.

Actually they SHOULD increase the library hours and pay for it by DECREASING the 1st Selectman's hours to part time - people enjoy and find the library much more useful.

I find that remark to be offensive and down right stupid . I wonder If your employer feels the same way about you.
Scott MacBain June 10, 2012 at 03:22 AM
There was nothing offensive OR stupid about the comment. It was called a point of view. But there ARE people who will be offended at the change of the wind. Appreciate the personal attack also, great ability at staying on topic. You must be a ~special~ person "R".
R Alvin June 10, 2012 at 12:32 PM
It was both and that certainly was not a point of view . It was nothing but a low class remark.
Scott MacBain June 11, 2012 at 01:24 AM
It was nothing of the sort. It is a "point of view" that organizations that provide a SERVICE to the townspeople are better regarded than cboards and commissions that "manage" the public. I'm not really going out on a limb here Alvin - not too many people are going to get up at a budget meeting and give personal remarks on how the Bd. of Selectmen or the Zoning Commission or whatever made a difference in their life the way they did in favor of the HCH Library. If you are having a problem discriminating between a "point of view" and a "low class remark" perhaps you could refer to the last line of your first response or possibly seek out more education.

Very good news indeed!
R Alvin June 11, 2012 at 12:15 PM
Sorry, you didn't say the board of finance nor the BOS you went right at the first selectman in that remark. And I have been at town meetings were the BOS and it's leader have been praised . Maybe it is u who is in need of more education or perhaps just a better attitude.
Scott MacBain June 12, 2012 at 06:50 AM
Alvin, you obviously have an inflated opinion of yourself as the BOS' defender. If the holders of those positions are as thin skinned as you apparently are they shouldn't be there. Spelling, grammar, and nuances of the English language might be a good place to start Al.
R Alvin June 12, 2012 at 04:27 PM
Glad to see you are awake. Thin skinned , hardly . I just don't like personal attacks on people who work hard and try to do their best for the town. We can disagree with a person's politics all you want and we can disagree as to whether he does a good job or not but to insinuate that the town would be better off with a part time first Selectman is foolish.
