To the Editor:
The Beacon article (5/9/19) entitled “Councilman dockets ‘no confidence’ vote against school finance director” by 8th ward Councilman Anthony Sinapi is an absolute embarrassment. As a dedicated member of the Warwick School committee for eight years, I had the displeasure of quietly listening to his neverending and discouraging comments at our school committee meetings for too many months. The Warwick School Department did not deserve these verbal attacks that diminished the education of our beautiful students given by our teachers, administrators and committee members.
Mr. Sinapi’s unfounded “Resolution of no confidence” against director Tony Ferrucci is beyond the pale. Mr. Ferrucci is one of the most intelligent and qualified administrators to serve the Warwick School Department. He is an exceptional human being who consistently works extra hours in his position, always the gracious gentleman. He doesn’t deserve such a mean-spirited mission by Mr. Sinapi, who is attempting to obtain other council backers for his diatribes against the school department.
I beg our other council members to realize what is happening here and stop this hateful resolution in its tracks. I plead with Councilman Sinapi to end your vendetta; it is not worthy of you.
