Dear Editor:

To those of you that have seen my photo in my campaign advertisement and are unfamiliar with my ongoing battle with Mayor Gonnelli’s character assassination of me. Permit me to explain, the misinterpretation of what supporters interpreted to be my giving an OK sign. My intention was to make it appear that I was making a 0 (zero) sign.

Last year Mayor Gonnelli, had the audacity to make a statement at a Board of Education meeting that during my term on the Board saying that I had accomplished zero, making the same “0” gesture I used in my advertisement.

If you would allow me to clear up a misinterpretation, that I am responsible for, I would appreciate it.

Tom Troyer
Former Board Trustee

Will this man just shut up? Enough is enough. Although the first amendment gives us the freedom of speech, there comes a time where you just need to be quiet. What's the matter someone didn't talk to you for 5 minutes, so you need to attack the Mayor yet again. Mr Troyer, no one cares. Really, they don't. Ask those voices in your head to stop talking to you. You are getting them confused with the public, who really could care less.

Even though Troyer was, I believe, a teacher at some point in his career, he seems to need some help with his punctuation as well as his advertising ability. Firstly Tom, as regards the introduction of your letter [To those of you that have seen my photo in my campaign advertisement and are unfamiliar with my ongoing battle with Mayor Gonnelli’s character assassination of me. Permit me to explain…]

Tom, it would have been appropriate to place a comma between the words me and permit with a lower case p and then conclude that sentence with a period after explain. Also as it is only your opinion that Gonnelli is attempting to assassinate your character you should more rightly have stated something on the order of “my belief that he is attempting to assassinate my character.”

You see Tom, rather than deal with facts you simply try and make every issue about you and not the actual issue, which in most cases is not an issue to anyone but you and your narcissistic paranoid delusional mind. You always make every single thing revolve around you as though you are the shinning sun in the sky.

Mayor Gonnelli on the other hand does almost everything he does every day of the week for the benefit of the town. He is a problem solver and you are nothing more than a nasty little self centered finger pointer.

But getting back to the advertisement, did it not ever occur to you before publishing an ad that people might not be aware of your “Zero” charge, and that holding up fingers in a zero shape are also seen as a positive, an endorsement of the individual of whom you are speaking.

Then you put a letter of explanation into the paper making people all the more aware of your ineptitude. You have graded yourself Tom. The zero you have achieved for your anti Gonnelli campaign results in an Epic Fail a grade of ZERO!!!
