Mrs. Parrino said in her letter to the Mineola American last week that my dad instructed the people who defended him to do so. It’s sad that after three years of serving with him, she obviously didn’t get to know him at all. He would never tell people to do that. Also, she said he threatened her in his resignation speech.
She’s referring to when he quoted my great grandmother: “don’t worry lad, in the end it will come around and they’ll get it in the neck.” It was grandma’s way of saying “what goes around comes around.” My dads entire speech can be found on the Mineola American’s website. I suggest you all read it before believing he was threatening Mrs. Parrino. He has already taken responsibility for his words, admitted he made a mistake, and apologized. He is no longer on the board, which is just what she wanted. What else do you want Mrs. Parrino? Enough is enough, already.
