The Negative in Another

In response to Oni Sioson’s Aug. 8 letter “The Deafening Silence,” the full comment I emailed to the Courier [regarding Board of Education (BOE) member John Finkle] was as follows:

“I would like to remind everyone that the current crime pled guilty to by Mr. Finkle is completely unrelated to the East Haven Public School District. Mr. Finkle’s position on the BOE is elected, and he cannot be removed, and though we are coming up to an election, I will not participate in political posturing by asking for his resignation. As I expressed in February, if Mr. Finkle chooses to resign, it must be of his own cognizance and in accordance to his personal code of ethics. Personally, I would like to believe he will do what is best for students, staff, and town residents to further separate his situation from the district as well as to spend more time with family and friends.”

I’m not going to ask someone to resign as a form of political posturing; the attempt would be futile, though my decision is sadly being used in that manner. A political platform should be built on what one can do for their community. I question any one person or group that needs to lift itself up by putting another down.

I’ve stated before: There are always many variables to take into account in situations such as this. The rules are continuously changing, especially in politics. I understand that it’s easier to point out the negative in another, whether that be another person, party, or area when campaigning, when you don’t have anything positive to say of yourself. I know that I don’t have all the answers, but at the same time, I’m reluctant to trust anyone who says they do.
