To The Daily Sun,
On Tuesday evening I had a learning experience. I attended the Gilford Budget Committee's hearing on the proposed school budget.
I learned Kevin Leandro has managed both union and non-union shops. I learned Mr. Leandro has personal feelings about the amount of money some school support staff make. I learned Kevin really likes to hear himself talk. I learned he does not like to listen to others.
I learned he thinks it is okay to interrupt others when he does not agree with what they are saying. I learned he is unable to just listen and not impose his opinion. I learned he could not give a straight answer to some of the questions asked. I learned that everyone who had a different opinion from his was wrong.
I learned Mr. Leandro is a bit of a bully; he suggested I might cut off my nose to spite my face, should I exercise a certain right, at the town deliberative session. He was very rude to me, and to other members of the public who wished to express their opinion to the elected budget committee.
We elect government bodies to carry out our intentions, not to follow their own agenda. Mr. Leandro has his own agenda. The exhibition of agitation he displayed was quite disturbing to see in an elected public official.
