A police officer in Ansonia is speaking out after being passed over twice for a sergeant’s position despite scoring the highest on written exams.
“This promotion will set a major precedent within the department and is likely to cripple many members’ hopes of moving up in their careers within the department,” Detective Jonathan Troesser wrote in a letter to the Ansonia police commission Feb. 2.
The Seymour school superintendent issued a statement Friday blaming social media for prolonging a police investigation at the high school Thursday.
“This is an example of the negative impact the social media rumor mill can have on society. In this case, the communication and evolution of fake news negatively impacted the educational process in our school,” Superintendent Michael Wilson said.
Ansonia’s Board of Education formally accepted a letter of resignation Wednesday from high school principal Terri Goldson.
“It has been a pleasure and honor to serve the students, parents, staff and entire community as a teacher and administrator in the City of Ansonia,” Goldson wrote in the letter, his first public statement since being put on an unexplained leave in December.
“I wish Ansonia Public Schools continued success.”
