that's what they say!
Shortly after the rechartering vote for the New Hartford Library failed, one of the library employees who has a very lucrative part-time position in the library, decided to create a blog with a name very similar to this blog.
Difference is, this employee fills his blog with misinformation and derogatory statements against those he feels are standing in the way of the library becoming a million dollar project. Not once has he posted an actual document to back up his accusations and at this point he is seemingly refusing to post comments sent to his blog in opposition to his opinions.
For this employee blogger to be ranting and raving without all the facts merely proves that the New Hartford Public Library is in distress; not only at the board level, but internally.
This blogger's obvious spewing of hatred is more than likely over what he sees as a threat to his $24,000+ a year part-time job in the library...his rants are unproductive, uncalled for and unethical. This writer certainly has a right to free speech, but what is he accomplishing by dissing everyone while providing nothing to substantiate his claims?
The problems in the New Hartford Public Library are very real; many are still left to be disclosed to the public. Some of the problems are already being addressed and "cleaned-up" internally before the audit takes place.
The town has retained D'Arcangelo & Co. to audit the library books beginning sometime in February according to Earl Cunningham at the last library board meeting.
Once completed, the audit will be made available and should provide some insight as to what needs to happen to get the library back on track.
Just to show that we have no 'hard feelings' toward this library employee turned blogger for trying to mimic our blog, we are going to give him his fifteen (15) minutes of fame; here's a link to his blog.
Don't library employees have a Code of Ethics to sign? Given the events of January 2012, we can't help but wonder if Ms. Romano will request Supervisor Tyksinski to take action and then proceed to publicly discuss discipline of this individual for his "unethical" behavior!
