To The Daily Sun,
I was shocked by Jacqueline Denver's comment on Page 4 of the Friday, Jan. 15, Laconia Daily Sun calling Mr. Leandro a "bully."
I attended the public hearing Thursday evening of the Gilford Budget Committee.
I found Mr. Leandro extremely well spoken, courteous and a true professional. I believe he is doing a great job, in an extremely tough area.
As far as listening to others, that is exactly what he did on Thursday night. He and the Budget Committee did increase the town budget based on public input, that night.
Dealing with the School Department where emotions run high, as to teachers' salaries is not an easy task.
I, too, am disturbed by the one-time expenditures, carried over from previous years, in the default budget of the School Department. This discrepancy is described by Norm Silber, a member of the Budget Committee, whose article appears on the same page.
I can see where Kevin Leandro and the rest of the Budget Committee were upset with the Gilford School Department. The School Department default budget may not have been presented in good faith. Let us get down to the true facts concerning the School Department default budget in a civil manner without further name-calling.
Just the facts, please.
