Letter: A thank you to SG Library Board

By on October 20, 2011

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the four members of the Sugar Grove Library Board (Bill, Dan, Julie and Tony), who voted in favor of mediation in the matter of the dismissal of the former library director.

As a taxpayer and a library user, I applaud the effort to save the Library District thousands of dollars of our money and to get the library management and support back on track. These trustees actually listened to the public, which they report to, and have taken the first step to heal a fractured community.

It’s time that the three other trustees (Joan, Art and Bob) set their egos aside, actually listen to what their neighbors have been saying for months, and resolve the personnel matter like it should have been done in the first place—through discussion. Trustees are supposed to listen to their constituency and act accordingly for the betterment of the community.

Congrats to Bill, Dan, Julie and Tony for doing the right thing. Their courage is inspiring.
