We can work together to find new uses of our town

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

After a Reilly/Tesei meeting, I left realizing that Tesei’s all right.

Having rated Peter Tesei close to the top when it comes to keeping Greenwich’s ship of affluent principles afloat, I now see he’s working hard to balance the extreme high taste of Greenwich, which often brings narrow perspective, with actual common sense.

He’s a good administrator who wants to streamline town operations to get more done and improve the very fiber of Greenwich’s soul, as I do. He wants to implement some of my ideas, yet how to present new thinking to old entrenched attitudes? With Greenwich’s conservative history being its motto and taking care of itself being its history, substantial proof is needed that new procedures would profit Greenwich.

Survival is a profit seldom recognized, yet wildly understood for continuation of our species.

Tesei and Reilly agree the very fiber of our world is in trouble when youth ignore physical and natural for preoccupation with technology. Thomas Edison warned in his last public address, how mankind must always balance technology with nature for human survival.

The balance Edison spoke of long ago is gone now and Tesei and I agree it must be restored. A general experimental discretionary fund could be the start of bring back “our human balance.”

Peter Tesei could really go places if there was a change in conscience attitudes or if Greenwich found one.

This general experimental discretionary fund I proposed allows a yearly sum earmarked for action groups to do hands on human skill for education and town operations to promote ethical exploration of general awareness while bringing people in touch with the natural.

It would cover efforts to get other municipalities involved. Think tanks will help government while developing integrity through expanding operating perspectives and practices. It would develop procedures that would lean towards giving maximum idealistic art/history seminar. I see this as a beginning to promote strong values in coordination with the new art center.

To do some of my low cost programs would give Greenwich a needed humanitarian respect and help form new ways of operations throughout our free world.
