Schools Superintendent Says Copier Critics Distort Facts

Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon today issued a detailed response to the latest criticism by two parents studying a controversial copier contract. He said the allegations were incorrect and showed a lack of understanding of negotiating strategy.

He made the statements in a memo to members of the Board of Education, which he copied to other town officials.

Landon said the latest analysis of the issue by Louis Gagliano and Stanley Alintoff alleging that the district unnecessarily paid $8,000 in interest was wrong.

The allegations are incorrect and demonstrate lack of understanding of a negotiating strategy that was instrumental in saving the Town of Westport $36,500,Ӕ Landon said.

The school official then presented a detailed rebuttal to the charges made by the two parents in a Sept. 24 letter, which they copied to town officials and the news media.

It is unfortunate that Messrs. Gagliano and Alintoff continue to make allegations to our local newspapers that, through their lack of thorough understanding, result in a distortion of the facts, so as to raise issues of credibility involving the school administration and the school board,Ӕ Landon said.

The facts speak for themselves.Ӕ
