It has now been several weeks since you publicly questioned the honesty and integrity of Trumbull Housing Authority Commission members and me. Your comments were personal and public, and as I have said many times over the past weeks, factually incorrect. I have repeatedly called upon you to retract them and make a full apology in the same public and forceful manner in which you made the comments.
The Trumbull Times reported last week that you were aware of my request but refused to retract any of your comments. Rather, you tried to justify them by citing problems at the Authority. But your disparaging comments were not directed to these problems, how they arose, or how to fix them. Rather, you accused the commissioners and me of various deceitful and unscrupulous acts. It seems to me that you consider this yet another squabble in town politics. It is not. It is an attack on the very character of people who have served this town for years both as volunteers and as elected officials.
