NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I was appalled to read the story in The News on Wednesday “Pulaski officials OK new well.”
Nancy Lowry reported that I would be abstaining from participating in the meeting or voting on the Hilcorp well, but that I accompanied the other supervisors and solicitor Richard Harper in the executive session.
I did not take part in the executive session. The executive session took place in the secretary’s office at the front of the building. I went into the police department, at the back of building.
The News has a habit of reporting inaccurate stories when it involves Pulaski Township. A few weeks ago the township called The News because of another inaccurate article.
After a July 4, article by reporter Mary Grzebieniak where she stated the “Supervisors called the officer over and said something to him” The News published an editorial and stated the “Supervisors went so far as to instruct a police officer to seize her electronic tablet.”
The supervisors did not instruct the police officer to confiscate anything; the tablet and our recording will prove that.
In previous articles regarding an issue between the township and the Lions Club, it was reported the supervisors filed vandalism charges against the club and the club asked the township to prune the bush, neither of which happened.
The reporter should get all the facts so she can do an accurate story; this is incompetent news reporting. The News is doing a huge disservice to their subscribers and readers by not printing fact-based articles. I guess true and fact-based stories aren’t newsworthy in the eyes of The News.
