In your April 1st letter to the editor column, Tom Roarty, a wannabe looking for Mayor Gonnelli’s backing in next year’s Secaucus Board of Education election, brought up charges that were made against me back in January of 1971.
These charges come up every time I run for the Board. If it is not Roarty, it’s the other wannabe, Ms Patricia Belenski. For the record, Roarty and Belenski took out petitions to run for the Board and for some mysterious reason, failed to file. That should indicate how insignificant the two are in the Gonnelli political organization.
The record shows that I have addressed these charges. Proof of the pudding, I have been elected and served on the Secaucus Board for five times, a total of 15 years. I have never deviated from my platform, that platform being to keep politics out of education.
My football experience, as a player and coach, has taught me to stay focused, never deviate from your goal. After this election, win or lose, I will address Tom Roarty pathetic attempt to discredit me at the proper time.
