Mayor: Statement Made About Himself, Others, Houses "Downright Lie"

Dear Editor:

This is in regards to a comment made by one Ray Piacentio on January 5, 2014 in reference to my published letter entitled “Manchester Services Criticism Unfounded, Mayor Says”.  I find it very difficult to believe you would publish wild, libelous, untrue statements of this magnitude.

There is not one true statement in this man’s comments.  There are nowhere near 72 abandoned houses in the area he referred to.

His statement about my comments to his 85 year old grandmother is a downright lie.  I have not attended a Council meeting in over 8 years, except as a spectator, once a year at reorganization time.

I will be talking to my attorney shortly to bring action against this individual if I can locate him and include Patch and you in any action I take.

well now that I've heard from both sides of this pissing contest..i think they are both crazy...what a waste of space on the patch or anyplace else..one cant spell and the other is in charge of the funny farm...my suggestion is you two men take this out back and bring a ruler with you...and may the best idiot win

This reminds me of the time the town elected that younger guy, Weiner I think his name is, and he wrote the how dare you voters elect this guy letter. This guys history is amazing. Wow, a pol would have to have a fleet of lawyers is they sued everytime they got slandered if that's what even the case. Grow up.

Lol...well diane i am not an idiot number one... number two when typing on my phone kinda do shortcut writing. Anywho that was my father who mispelled but he is blind in 1 eye and has limited sight in other so excuse him. You dont know complete story on my original statement and why i said the things i said long story and if I told you what i been thru with the police in this town u would agree with me. I almost lost a family member cause of the police negligence but to be honest with you it isnt completely 100% there fault. Law makers are just pencil pushers and know nothing of the real world expierence. Everyone is entitled to there opinion. I spoke mine.
