I want to thank the Trumbull Housing Authority for acting quickly to name an interim Executive Director. Harriet Polansky is a long time Trumbull resident who has demonstrated a strong management background and a consideration for the infirm and the elderly.
I believe her organizational skills, coupled with her compassion and pleasant disposition will be a welcome change at Stern Village. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the reports from our emergency management team and first responders were very clear and underscored the need for fundamental reform.
I believe Mrs. Polansky will act quickly to implement the emergency preparedness plan and also make sure we have adequate generator capacity in the event of future weather related emergencies. I also believe that Mrs. Polansky will work hard to build a better relationship between Stern Village and the Trumbull Senior Center.
More importantly, I am confident that Mrs. Polansky will treat every resident of Stern Village with dignity and respect. I wish her well as she assumes her new responsibilities.
