From Robert Kramsky

BRATTLEBORO — In response to the opinion piece written by Mindy Haskins Rogers and published in last week's Commons, I want to sincerely apologize for any pain I may have caused due to my actions.

To clarify, I was unaware of any of the accusations against Zeke Hecker while he was a teacher at Brattleboro Union High School and became aware of them only after he had retired. By that time it became clear to me that the school administration and the police were also aware.

I did continue to work with Zeke over the years since then and have directed several of his musical plays. In retrospect, this was a mistake for which I am truly sorry.

I also realize that this is not “ancient history” but a pain for some that will last a lifetime.
