To The Daily Sun,
Shame on you Dave Schwotzer for writing about things you know little or nothing about and not telling the truth about others. You have seen a case of someone taking their bat and ball home as recent as in the past couple of years, as someone in your household resigned their position to avoid confrontation.
The employees who signed the letter supporting the firing of the (Belknap County Nursing Home) administrator had cause. You are not privy to their injustices, and rightly so. The family members of the residents in the nursing home and the residents themselves had cause.
Your comment about residents being pressured by staff to sign a petition shows your ignorance of nursing home residents. Nursing home residents are not all cognitively impaired; they have minds of their own and voices to let their opinions be known. They have even been to some of the meetings. They read the newspapers themselves and when they read your article they will, without a doubt, take offense to your insinuation that they don't have minds of their own.
You do not work at or even visit the nursing home to understand what goes on between the delegation, the commissioners, the residents and their family members and the employees of Belknap County. I do, as I am not only a taxpayer but, also an employee who has been to meetings and seen the childish behavior of the delegation in person. I may not have been present for the foul language used against Mr. Nedeau by a member of the delegation who will be coming in as a commissioner this new term, but I heard about it the very next day and then read about it in the newspaper. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to determine that the incoming commissioners would not be civil working partners for Mr. Nedeau.
I again remind you of your own family experience with this behavior and the decision your family member chose to make. If you choose to write incomplete truths, be prepared to be called out for them. As you can clearly see, I only write about what I know as fact as opposed to the ranting of someone who feels they have a score to even, truth or not.
