"It takes two to lie. One to lie and one to listen."

Dear Commissioner Klee:

Re Deputy Commissioner Macky McCleary's egregiously lied in his letter of 15Jul14.
"We are, of course, also aware that you have specifically refused to allow your system to be upgraded, per your July 4, 2014 e-mail to this Department."
- Macky McCleary
We did NOT "specifically refuse to allow our system to be upgraded." McCleary offers no citation, (no quote), for his awareness, because there was nothing he could cite to that effect to make him "aware."

McCleary lied.
"As the town has acted in good faith to meet their responsibilities under the Stipulation of Judgment,..."
- Macky McCleary
Carl P. Fortuna Jr, Old Saybrook's First Selectman, lied to DEEP in his letter of 12-2-13 when he said that upgrades in Cornfield Park were complete.

We live in Cornfield Park (lot 3/242) and our septic system hasn't been upgraded. If DEEP is willing to accept a lie as evidence of "good faith," then DEEP is impervious to a readily verified truth: Carl P. Fortuna Jr can't produce any document (zero, nada, zilch) showing that upgrade work was done on our system, no permit, no installer's invoice, no CRAHD or WPCA inspection, no As-Built plan (map) of the upgraded system.
"We intend no punitive action against the Town of Old Saybrook at this time for this situation."
- Macky McCleary
"This situation" is DEEP's shameful unwillingness to enforce its own Consent Decree to the detriment of the health of the citizens of Old Saybrook - unless the septic upgrade program is a fraud and not a program to protect the health of people, rather to, by artifice, aid the political ambition of Carl P. Fortuna Jr. as announced in his Press Release published in Harbor News, 18Jun15, page 15, "Fortuna Seeking Reelection in November."

If you're not going to enforce the Consent Decree, why did you seek it?

When will DEEP stop hiding from its responsibility?
                             Very truly yours,

                             Joel R. Anderson
