I really don't care what you think Patsy. Has Mr. Kadri suffered the same twisted dirty politics I am facing on this blog? Is his character being misrepresented as is mine simply for stating my opinion that the back stabbing, negativity, and nasty comments made demonstrate how so many people in Groton seem to be angry and unhappy? The facts are Patsy, Franky, CA, and Chris... you have no business telling me what to do, misrepresenting my character and beliefs, and ultimately running a smear campaign against me. I suspect Mr. Kadri has felt the same retaliation for speaking his mind. Frankly, it is the three of you bullies that are clearly demonstrating my point. Maybe living in one of the top "distressed" communities of CT explains why so many people are so very unhappy? I myself own two homes, have children and grandchildren and an excellent pension. The only reason I am angry is the assault on me by rude people like you. I am more than willing to stop this thread but every time I check my e-mail the is another nasty comment...

Hi everyone. I just got an email from a Patch reader asking me to remind everyone that while this is definitely a forum for opinions, it is not a place to take pot shots at each other. As our terms of use say, "While we encourage people to be honest and post what’s on their mind, communities thrive when people care about each other, and as such, Patch expects all of its users to be respectful of others. This means that whether you are being complimentary or critical, whether you are agreeing or disagreeing with the subject of an article or another user’s comment, you should act in a civil manner and refrain from personal attacks – after all, these are your neighbors." Thanks!

To anyone still reading this string I would invite you to look back and see I never attacked anyone. D Paul went off topic and started bad mouthing Groton residents saying they were generally neagative and added some general name calling. I pointed out that he was doing just that with his post and tried to point out the irony of his comments. After it got circular I stopped commentng.

DP, The simple facts of the Kadri case, as spelled out in the investigative report, are this: He harassed, mistreated, and intimidated multiple females in their place of work. He attempted, and maybe did, manipulated the district grievance process by telling the person who schedules the grievance hearings to only schedule them when BOE members who would side with him were available to attend such hearings. He attempted to, and may have, misused grant monies for purposes other than what the grantors intended. Much of Groton has seen, heard, and read enough about Mr. Kadri's to realize he is not good for our community. Yes there is anger and shock over how this so called professional has behaved. Ditto the board of education. We aren't back stabbing anyone. Just venting and sharing thoughts on how our town has wronged. Respectfully, Franky
