Letter: Response to Kristi Sogofsky’s Op-Ed on Region 9 Board Appointment

To the Editor:

I am writing in response to Kristi Sogofsky’s LTE dated July 22.

I’m reminded of the phrase “you only get one chance to make a first impression.”

Kristi and the RTC had the same opportunity as the DTC to search for a BOE candidate, prepare a response, and make a recommendation Continue reading “Letter: Response to Kristi Sogofsky’s Op-Ed on Region 9 Board Appointment”

In response to Kristi Sogofsky’s letter dated July 22, I see what transpired at the July 15 Board of Selectman (BOS) meeting differently. I attended the meeting, and I am an Unaffiliated voter in Easton.

Letter: Why the Fight Against DE&I?

To the Editor:

In Easton and Redding, there is outspoken, bitter opposition to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, to teaching our children about people who are different. I’d like to know why. Whatever happened to “love thy neighbor”?

Letter: Response to July 25 letter

To the Editors:

I am deeply distressed by the loss to our school and students of Dr. Rydell Harrison. That he was hounded, even persecuted, is apparent. The flurry of fliers and letters full of righteous indignation over DEI efforts are astounding given centuries of evidence.

To the Editor:

I am writing to applaud the Easton Board of Selectman decision to appoint Sarah Lehberger to the vacant seat on the Region 9 Board of Education.  I disagree with Kristi Sogofsky’s accusation in her recent letter that this was a political appointment.

Letter: Response to Interview with Dr. Harrison

Letter: Library Director Responds to Facebook Posts

To the Editor:

I would like to respond to the negative post on the Moms of Easton Facebook Page on July 14.
