Minett Enters the Ring and Tag Teams with Rooney

June 30, 2006

Crotonblog: Letters to the Editor, Croton-on-Hudson, New York 10520
You may have seen the letter from Joann Minett in the June 30, 2006 edition of The Gazette. This response is not to change her petty/puppet mindedness but to put her accusations in proper perspective.

If you missed the recent exchange between William Rooney and me in the Gazette (see also: “In this corner, Ex-Trustee Georgianna Grant…”), you should know that he, not I, threw the first stone. I am not the least bit interested in how Mr. Rooney or Mrs. Minett view my actions but I will defend my integrity and reputation at all costs. In short, they (the Cudequest, Rooney, Minett crowd) struck the opening chord and then have the unmitigated gall to complain when I respond.

For the record: “…disrespectful, nasty, uncivil, venom… “ are Joann Minett’s choice of words, not mine.

I will never initiate the charges toward disrespect, nastiness or incivility but I reserve the right and responsibility to respond when others do. Strange that these folks think they can attack the very core of my being and then feign indignation when I respond.

It’s so trifling to read comments from people like Minett. Her armchair quarterbacking is tiresome. She snickers and sneers like an immature teen when someone disagrees with her. How I would love to see her run for a slot on the village board and be on the receiving end of such disrespect. It’s easy to be critical when you don’t have to be held accountable for your actions. We are all entitled to our opinion. It just shows who’s got class and who is crass by the style in which they’re delivered. Minetts true colors shine through every time and it’s not a pretty sight.

Interesting how Rooney/Cudaquest and Minett feel free to malign, insult and impune the character of any Democrat who sits on the board and whose views are opposed to theirs, but are then appalled when the falsehhoods of their rantings are challenged. I have had the misfortune to sit at board meetings in close proximity to Ms. Minett and been disgusted by her foul tongue and snide, running commentary against those with whom she disagrees. When you live in a glass house, you should not throw stones.
