Support our town Librarian, remove inappropriate trustee

This petition had 58 supporters

Please support the librarian by removing inappropriate trustee of the library.

Volunteers at the Jericho Center Library recently received an email from a library trustee. In this email the trustee complained about library work not completed to his specifications. Many of us felt uncomfortable receiving this email and found the tone and content inappropriate. The town librarian Colleen was asked about this trustee and his issue. The librarian was very professional in relaying that she undertook an assignment given to her at a trustee meeting and this one trustee is unhappy with her work. Other sources indicate this trustee has a history of negative behavior and unproductive decisions that negatively impact the library. It is our understanding the library board has spoken to the trustee but the issues continue. 

We learned our beloved librarian is seeking work elsewhere because the negative and negligent conduct by board trustee impacts her work and the library. We support a healthy work environment for town employees. We do not wish to lose a vibrant, hardworking town librarian because of a volunteer trustee's on-going inappropriate actions. Our tax dollars are invested in our employees and institutions. Please protect our investment in the people who capably serve the community.

We ask the Jericho Town Select board to review this library board trustee's actions and seek his resignation and removal from the library trustee board.

We love our library and support the great work of Colleen our librarian.
