To the Editor:
Governor Malloy recently criticized Newtown’s handling of the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. He said Newtown’s actions were “much too slow.”
Seriously? Who makes the timetable for this sort of thing? From his perch in Hartford, does the governor have any respect for the collective wisdom and experience of those overseeing the disbursement of the fund?
Msg. Weiss (Father Bob to most of us), Dr Herrick, Ben Spragg, Anne Ragusa, J.D., and Joseph DiCandido are a formidable team. As Kenny Chesney would say they’ve, “been around the block a time or two.” They are generous to take on this arduous task, and they will make intelligent, informed decisions.
On a state and local level, this team deserves neither criticism nor impatience. Perhaps gratitude, support, trust, and a splash of We Choose Love would be more in keeping with the spirit of our donors.
