Middletown Library Chair: a Thank You & an Apology

I am writing in regard to your earlier post concerning the Middletown Public Library ("Library Brouhaha Over, July 26). Now that the legal process has run its course, I feel that an apology to the author of this blog is in order. Anyone who actually believed the scurrilous rumor that Ms. Spillane had been promised the Director's job as a political favor should truly be ashamed of himself.

Kudos to my fellow Board members who persevered throughout this entire unfortunate affair. You were right, you stood up for yourselves, and you prevailed.

Lastly, I would like to correct an earlier report in the Journal that our Board had summarily rejected the Council's earlier resignation request by refusing to receive this communication. Though we may not have seen eye-to-eye on this issue, we maintain due respect for the Council, and would never treat them with such discourtesy.

(Signed) John Grisham, Chairman Middletow Library Board of Trustees
