The Ross family has been communicating with Concerned Citizens for several months regarding their situation. The Whitestown Town Board and their Attorney are arrogant and have done nothing to help these residents.
Attorney Schmitt was obnoxious regarding our FOIL request and appeal for an electronic copy of the Shumaker Engineering report regarding the Ross flooding problems. What did he think he was protecting?
To Attorney Schmitt, addressed in the same manner in which he addressed us at the September 17, 2008 Town Board meeting...
Sir, your first mistake was in assuming that we could not provide the Ross family with an electronic copy of the Shumaker report. Joke is on you, Attorney Schmitt, we have software that takes a pdf file and converts it to a Word document; even a pdf file that has been password protected. We didn't really need an electronic copy from the town...we were merely exercising our right to obtain an electronic copy through the FOIL process.Concerned Citizens has provided the Ross family with an electronic copy of the report.
Your second mistake was in the Opinion Letter from Robert Freeman you used to justify the town's position. The opinion you used was ridiculous and had nothing to do with our appeal. You merely proved what we already knew; the Town of Whitestown definitely has something to hide!
As we have said before, between New Hartford and Whitestown, there is plenty of arrogance to go around!
We encourage everyone to visit the The Ross Cause.
