I had commented on another article related to this very question, the Board of Trustes meet with the PD BEFORE the last Board Meeting. What was the result? For some reason it was not televised.

I Believe officer Smiths comments were directed at Brakewood , his wife and Pilla

I agree CC. That coward Mr. Brakewood sent his retched, decrepit, old hag he calls a wife to harass a sick man. Sham on you Brakewoods...Don't worry citizens of PC, the Mayor and the Board of Trustees seats are up soon, make sure they don't get voted back in. And by the way Mr. Bart Didden since you love PC so much and want to run for PC Mayor why don't you give back the 3 million dollars you sued Port Chester for.
