In Newfane, a stark difference in civility

SOUTH NEWFANE — I was disappointed in the coverage of the Newfane Selectboard meeting.

It did not reflect the context in which the meeting was held - specifically, the vitriol expressed by the few opposed to the anti-bias training, leading to many feeling traumatized and unsafe. It focused on the first meeting and neglected to cover the most recent meeting during which the vitriol and disrespect continued.

There is a stark difference in civility between those who favor and those who oppose the idea of a training being offered.
