Lack of responsibility on Ledyard affordable housing is real story

My name was recently mentioned in an article in your paper, "Conditions expected to improve at Ledyard affordable housing complex," (May 27). While I agree that your paraphrasing of my comments was accurate, it does not begin to cover the scope of our concerns.

Your article neglected to say that I was speaking on behalf of several residents about major issues including favoritism, invasion of privacy, as well as the current director of our facility (who was praised in your article) overstepping the boundaries of her job duties. If you view the video recording of May 26 Ledyard Town Council meeting, you will see that all these things and more were mentioned by me.

We have already met with the mayor and now the council. It seems that no one has the authority to do anything about our concerns. Therein lies the problem; no one is policing the people who are appointed to these positions. I was hoping that in the interest of fairness you might be willing to interview some of our residents, get our side of the story, and perhaps publish another article from our perspective.

As the saying goes, "There are two sides to every story".
