Recently I have been disgusted with the Twitter and Facebook posting of someone that is supposed to be looked up to as a leader in our community. These public forums should be, if anything, an outlet for someone such as our mayor to convey important facts and relevant information to his public.
As a man in office his priorities should be school budgets, fixing the housing issues, unemployment and so much more. Instead we read about "Jersey Shore," lingerie football, getting his wife more "swag" and endlessly referring to himself as "Bigpoppa."
As a mother of two children I'm ashamed to have him setting the example of local politics to my children. Danbury has always been a great community to raise children in. I have grown up here and now raise my own children here. But to have a mayor use the internet to voice himself in such a way is not setting a good example to our youth.
My 15-year-old feels the same way as I do and refuses to even read his posts.
I understand we all have the option to read what's put out on the web or not, but as a mayor, these forums could be used to do so much good.
Inform the community about town meetings, let us know what is being done to improve our town. We all have a TV guide and we all hear the teenagers talk in the way he does. Set the example and improve the things around you before it's too late!
Shame on you!
A letter to the self-described "bigpoppa"
