Letter - Disappointed in senior center direction

To the editor:

Upon receiving the August issue of the Alexandria Senior Center newsletter, I read the article written by Ann Engstrom Esterberg, the director. I was very disappointed and sad.

I was disappointed that the person responsible for the everyday operation of our respected senior center uses a method of problem-solving that other people in position of authority have tried and are usually unsuccessful. (If you don't like the message being sent, kill the messenger, i.e., Paul Anderson.)

Admit nothing, blame everyone else, accept no responsibility, and above all, do not offer any solutions.

It is sad because that we are now seeing the beginning of the end of the Alexandria Senior Center as we know it. It would be a loss to our community and for those of us who remember good times at the center.

I request that the direct and the board of directors ask themselves on simple question: Are you part of the problem or part of the solution?

When they get an honest answer to their question, they need to take action.
