Croton Friends of History Present: The Life and Times of CLIFFORD B. HARMON

May 20, 2017

From This Week’s Gazette

Reprinted with permission:

To the Editor:
It’s been over one year since the last monthly Village newsletter. Mayor Schmidt and his board majority declared the village news letter too expensive to produce, so it was abruptly cancelled with the promise of a “quarterly” replacement.
Since then village communications have been a cobbled together mess. A series of Freedom of Information requests has revealed that the village has no idea how much the promised-but-not-delivered “quarterly” is actually costing or how many staff hours it is taking to produce.
Is this what Croton United means by “doing what’s best for village residents?”  Where is the transparency and communication that we were promised?
