Flawed process


The process in choosing a new mascot was as flawed as the process used by the North Haven Board of Education when it voted to get rid of our original Indian mascot. Where was the town-wide vote when the Board of Education – with their anti-Indian protesters – voted to get rid of the Indians mascot?

My family and friends will always call our athletic teams the Indians. How could we not when three-quarters of our town has been named in honor of the culture and heritage of the Native Americans who peacefully lived in North Haven for centuries?

This is the beginning of a liberal and socialist Board of Education agenda. Beware of what’s coming next!
