Work at Greenwich Point feels alien

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I had a dream that a UFO was unearthed at Greenwich Point. Next a Castleton College of Vermont public opinion researcher called about their survey on Greenwich services requested by the selectmen.

I was surprised. I told the representative, that I’m trying to work with the selectman’s office, yet, political rivals are more like it. I told her I would so consider participating and the caller said she’s removing my name from the list.

I’m part of the public seeing unacceptable happings. Before this call I was in Town Hall bumping in to Al Monelli. Al was his abrupt self and kept walking so I threw him a question. How’s the North Concession coming at the Point? Monelli turned, not missing a step, and threw back that it wasn’t happening due to lease problems.

All past storm damage was taken care of quickly. I never heard of any excuses about federal regulations because we too rebuilding without government help until recently. But when Greenwich Point Conservancy, with a major contributor putting up the funds so, the answer to my question is I get lease problems.

Joe Dietrich’s rolling in his grave. He put our parks together, including acquiring Tod’s Point and building the Bruce Golf Course.

Northern beach has more use with a refurbished Queen Ann. Now called Innis Arden Cottage, giving no due to the WWII vets who saved the building, naming it the Queen Ann, after the war. Then there were showers with refreshments at the northern part of the beach.

Now “yuppifaction” of the Point by town bureaucrats has brought unforeseen complications. How can a lease of public property stop rebuilding, leaving no shower or refreshments for such a long time. I grew up in Greenwich. My parents moved here because of Greenwich Point. Now it’s all pretty alien.

I find it alien that few can change operating procedures. It’s wrong that I’m removed from a polling institution’s question list after stating my possible Tesei rivalry as if I do not have a right to an opinion.
