We need to find United We Stand again

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I met Peter Tesei and he emailed Chris Hughes, Chief Jim Heavy and Dan Warzoha on my proposal for an emergency military experienced citizen reserve pool yet three weeks later nothing.

My park ranger/police proposal and my auxiliary citizens with military/first responder experience will make for safer, more efficient governing. But I’m tired and disheartened by the lack of attention. I’ve shared words about JFK and the Camelot Era and disruptions of the Vietnam Era so now I ask, does anyone remember united we stand?

Common Ground brings efficient management with respectful follow ups. I wonder how our country can ever get better with this great lack of respect through poor management. We need common courtesy as in the business world. I see businessmen follow through but not the likes of Peter Tesei and Scott Frantz. Peter Tesei wanted what my 2003 campaign represented on his team in 2007.

I was about to move having made a deal in 2007 to acquire a northern farm to house “My Mother’s Foundation to Help People with Art Barn” but then Peter Tesei changed my course and now look at the mess. As always, I am left hanging, My WWII veteran neighbor said, the world’s worse now and what happened to our country?

United We Stand seems gone and I find it so strange that officials leave me hanging. Yet, when I leave a brief message with the head of Bob’s Discount Furniture, who does a lot with nonprofits about taking over my Mother’s Foundation with the Art Barn, he gets right back to me.

I met the founder of Bob’s 24 years ago when he opened his first store in Stamford. Now Bob Kaufman has 55 stores. That’s good management/government. He believes in United We Stand, yet our town, which is so high profile and could lead by example with attempts at improving public safety could make national news, does nothing.

Leaders need respectful common ground to find United We Stand and be ready to explore all proposals for the well being of its citizens.
