Cold Hearted BET Wants To Cut The Weakest Members Of Greenwich Society (greenwichroundup.blogspot)
The Greenwich Department Of Social Services Is A Helping Hand To Many In Town

Dear Editor,

The recent severe storms have caused loss of conveniences and even disastrous events in most of our lives over the past several days. Loss of a life and extensive property damage, injuries, blocked roads, loss of electricity and heat, cold showers, shortages in some basic needs and general overall discomfort.

Now consider this and worse as a way of living for yourself. Many of our fellow Greenwich Citizens live in the wake of a true disaster each and every day of the year!

Among us are the homeless, the hungry, the unemployed, the mentally ill, the financially stressed seniors, disabled and low income people. They make up more than 16% or well over 10,000 of our fellow citizens. The recent storm was only an inconvenience to most of us. The ongoing devastation is what our least fortunate citizens experience throughout the year.

Recently The BET Budget Committee reviewed and ratified next year’s town budget. Our Social Services Department budget was decreased 2 ½ times more than any other department’s. Can you visualize the additional devastation this will have on the lives of our less fortunate.

• More than 3,900 Greenwich residents are officially unemployed (more are not recorded)
• The local homeless shelter has experienced a 21% increase in demand and is either at or beyond capacity
• The local food pantry has seen an increase of 50% in demand for food
• The average non-profit in Greenwich has seen a 20% drop in their fundraising

Social Services is the Department that addresses the most urgent needs of this suffering population. It seems counterintuitive to slash their budget by 5.78% from last year’s funding, but that is exactly what has happened. (Note: Social Service makes up less than 1% of the Town’s overall Operating Budget.)

If that isn’t enough reason to fully fund Social Services, please consider the fact Social Services has seen a 21% increase in caseloads is forced to radically triage incoming clients and the new budget calls for a further 11% reduction in permanent staff. The Social Service Staff has already decreased by 25% over the past few years. As staff size has decreased — so has service and help for those most needing it.

The hardworking, dedicated Social Service Workers can truly be life savers. I know from personal experience. A few years ago, I went from being a well-paid corporate communications designer to an indigent alcoholic bipolar after neurosurgery to remove a brain tumor. I cycled between emergency rooms, psych wards or jail for suicidal thoughts, severe depression, trespassing, disturbing the peace/drunkenness and back due child support.

A Greenwich Social Services Caseworker helped me find psychiatric services, addiction services, temporary shelter, permanent shelter, moral support and gave me wise counsel. If it wasn’t for them, I don’t believe I would be alive today.

Now I am able to pay back to society instead of just being a burden. I volunteer for Hurricane Relief Work, Habitat for Humanity, City Harvest, Neighbor to Neighbor (Food Pantry) and am actively involved in the many community service projects through my church.

Now is not the time to further weaken the safety net for our most vulnerable brothers and sisters. Greenwich Social Services Staff and its budget needs your advocacy. Our less fortunate and our vulnerable citizens can ill afford a further cut in services.

Please find the time to contact the Greenwich BET and ask them to reinstate the Social Services Funding and Staff to the full requested amount by the First Selectman and Social Services Department. Let’s make this a livable community for all our citizen including the less fortunate who suffer from a devastation you never want to experience.

03/21/10 Hearst Newspaper Cover Up: Thin skinned Faux news reporter gets Greenwich Time Investigative Reporter Teri Buhl fired?

Shame Shame Shame On Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber

Teri Buhl, hasn't just been fired from her job at Greenwich Time, a Hearst newspaper in Connecticut; her entire archive of blog entries there has disappeared, leaving only a message saying "This blog has been archived or suspended". It's as though Hearst wanted not only to fire her, but to make it seem as though they'd never hired her....

....the truth is that Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber praised Buhl's reporting on at a Greenwich Retired Men's Association meeting that was recorded for the local cable TV channel.Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber needs to stop running scared and grow a pair of journalistic balls.

Hearst Newspaper Editor needs to tell Greenwich Time readers what's going to happen to Bulh's blog archive, and further explain why it was taken down......

.....Here is the truth that Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber is hiding from the Greenwich Time readers.
Buhl wrote about Charlie Gasparino a couple of times on the blog she was hired to write at the beginning of this year ....

....Ms. Buhl correctly called him "Gas-bag", a common nickname which he doesn't like.

Angered, Gasparino called up the recently recently demoted and Ex-Greenwich Time Editor Jim Zebora, who is Ms. Bul's supervisor, and accused her of "stalking" him.,
Charlie then called Zebora's boss, Greenwich Time Editor McCumber, and made the same complaint. Once again, he didn't get very far. And then Charlie went further still, calling Steven Swartz, the president of Hearst newspapers, again with the same complaint.....

The Departed (former staffers of The Advocate/Greenwich Time)
Heartless Greenwich BET Is Creating Another Town Disaster
Jewish And Christian laws and traditions concerning treatment of the poor, widows, orphans, travelers, and others in need, grew directly from biblical commands.
The Torah teaches Jews Christian and all of mankind about the poor, social justice, and God's deep concern for both.
The Torah teaches:
"If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks." - Deut. 15:7

Now when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very corners of your field, neither shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest. Nor shall you glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the needy and for the stranger. I am the LORD your God. - Lev. 19:19
What Would Jesus Do If He Sat On The Greenwich BET?
It's Not My Problem: Maybe The Well Off Members Of The Greenwich BET Should Look In The Mirror And Ask Themselves What Would Jesus Do About The Homeless, The hungry, The Unemployed, The Mentally Ill, The Financially Stressed Seniors, Disabled And Low Income Members Of Greenwich Society
Any Greenwich Church Pastor That Has A BET Member In His Congregation Should Delivers A Message Titled, "Don't Ask What Jesus Would Do - Do What Jesus Would Do"

Shame, Shame Shame On Any Greenwich BET Member Who Seeks To Limit Help To His Less Fortunate Neighbor Instead Of Going After The Fraud Waste And Abuse In Greenwich Government The Cowardly Greenwich BET Members Are Going After The Town's Poor Children

The BET Should Cut Out The Free Food That Is Passed Out In The First Selectman's Office And Other Offices Before Taking The Food Out Of The Mouths Of Hungry Greenwich Children Where Are The Priorities On The Greenwich BET?

Should Greenwich BET Members Save Money By Cutting Out The Social Services Food Closet For Unemployed Greenwich Families Or Should Greenwich BET Members Cut The Free Food Passed Out Around Town Hall To Fully Employed Town Workers And Visitors?

The Town Budget Can Be Cut Without Hurting The Weakest Members Of Greenwich Society.
