Don’t let this pack of angry wolves get to you. They are pissed they lost the election and are looking for any excuse to bash the new administration.
Pettit’s paying job with the rec department didnt get cut and it is a strange conflict of interest for him to be on a committee whose recommendations could impact his own job. It’s a conflict of interest and it was the right move on the part of the new board.
Streany had his time on the RAC and its good to rotate people on and off committees to get a fresh perspective.
Responding to this crew is like leaving the heat on when all the windows are open, a needless and pointless waste of energy!”
This in response to the latest flurry from the angry squawkers over at the NCN Forum. Here’s a sample of their work:
jayoncroton: I strongly urge the posters and readers of this forum, some of whom voted for the new board, to ignore this boy. Instead, we are organizing phone calls to the press to bring this matter to their attention in a calm methodical manner in the hopes that more press will shed a light on this disturbing turn of events.

Judith A.: “I am so sickened by this event. To think that Leo (I REFUSE to call him “mayor”) did this is appalling. Gary Petit is a fixture in Croton—-along with his wife Doreen. The two of them did more for this recreation department than anyone.
I will gladly sign any petition to get Jane Murtaugh (gee——the wife of the new TRUSTEE????!!!!) off this committee and get Gary back.
What a crock of “you know what”. All you Democrats should be ashamed of yourselves.”
jayoncroton: “No Jane there is not a parallel here.
your name is MURTAUGH.
Mr. Waldman retired
Mr. Herbek retired
They were not fired.
Want copies of their retirement speeches? Look at the village website.
I have HEARD NO SUCH SPEECHES FROM STREANY OR PETTIT
No there is no parallell here Jane. Again, enough. Again I will happilly get signatures.
You said right here you wanted to be on the committee and ta-da, two seats open up, replacing two long standing contributors with vast experience in this area.
Discussion ended for my part. Again I will happilly get signatures.”
