Well today I had the pleasure of attending the Saratoga Housing Authority Board of Directors monthly meeting. It took a municipal form of Papal dispensation for me to attend, as I am still subject to a “no trespass order” but do to the intervention of Public Safety Commissioner Christian Mathiesen, Saratoga Police chief Chris Cole and the Saratoga County DA I was able to enter the sacred ground but just for the meeting.
But I was allowed in and treated very well. The meeting opened with the earlier video of Dennis Brunelle praising Housing Authority Executive Director Ed Spychalski to the point I was nauseated. This next video shows Brunelle claiming Ed Spychalski is suffering some form of post trauma stress syndrome.
Brunelle also said he looks forward to the state comptroller’s audit. This board simple refuses to admit any mistakes. Later we had a very fair comment period in which I was given a generous period of time to voice my concerns. There was a short break in the meeting to allow for executive session at which time we had to leave the room. It was at this point I was met by two Policeman in the lobby but they smiled and passed by.
Then we were allowed back in to ask more questions without Spychalski or the two Authority lawyers present. Again Brunelle listened and was attentive while I asked questioned ranging from why was I banned from the property to mold in Jefferson Terrace to why aren’t Housing Authority vehicles plainly marked with Saratoga Housing Authority decals? And while Brunelle listened I’m not sure he heard.
