Crotonblog: Letters to the Editor, Croton-on-Hudson, New York 10520
To the editor,

I’d like to clarify any misconceptions circulating in the community as a result of Letters to the Editor in The Gazette in recent weeks.

I was on the interviewing committee when our Recreation Supervisor applied for the position in Croton. I viewed her as the best qualified candidate then and can attest to the fact that she has proved to be an outstanding Recreation Supervisor. I have the highest respect and admiration for her abilities and dedication and would never dream of “putting her down” or insulting her. But that doesn’t mean I agree with every one of her decisions. I think the original scheduling of the new improved Teen Room was unfortunate and am delighted to see Mrs. Snyder adjusting the schedule to meet the needs of the users. Thank you Susan.

I read the results of the Community Survey (pdf) when it was first published on the village website. I thought it was an unnecessary expenditure from the get-go and that it provided no new information we didn’t already have. It came as no surprise that residents thought the concept was a good one, expressed interest in many different activities but had to be concerned with where it might be located and what it might cost. The 500 +/- respondents were hardly representative of a community of over 7,803 residents.

If alternatives were studied and proposed after the survey results were tabulated, I don’t believe they were ever publicly discussed. I certainly have not heard about any.
