Cathy Paretti, Co-founder of the Gallery on High/Gallery School of Pottstown read a prepared statement during the Comments from Citizens Present part of tonight’s Pottstown Borough Council Meeting. Evidently only Councilors Weand and Rhoads were listening. Bonnie appeared unphased (probably because she knew four members of council support her bad behavior).
Mrs. Paretti broke down the series of events which lead to Gallerygate. Mayor Heath meddled in a council decision and caused the Gallery’s request for grant money (to pay off the mortgage on their building and expand their services) to be denied. Mrs. Paretti also brought some interesting facts to light about an inappropriate release of information, by the mayor’s husband, before it was to be made public.
If Mrs. Paretti would like to have her remarks published on Roy’s Rants, in their entirety, we would be glad to do so!
We applaud Cathy Paretti and Erika Hornburg-Cooper for not allowing the mayor’s highly inappropriate behavior to go unchallenged, and for all they have done to help the Borough of Pottstown and the Greater Pottstown Area. You ladies ROCK!
