Dear Commissioner Klee:

Re Old Saybrook's Carl P Fortuna Jr., First Selectman, twice a liar.

1. On 19Mar2013, in an email to then Deputy Commissioner Macky McCleary, Fortuna Jr. wrote "The Town will likely be litigating the issue soon enough."

The passage of 2 3/4 years without litigation makes Fortuna Jr's representation a lie. Fortuna Jr. then was engaged in obstructing DEEP's penalty for the Town's non-performance under DEEP's Consent Decree.

2. On 02Dec2013 Fortuna Jr lied in his letter to DEEP's Dennis Grecci P.E. when he said that upgrades in Cornfield Park were complete.

We live in Cornfield Park (lot 3/242). Our septic system hasn't been upgraded.

If DEEP is willing to accept egregious lying 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.

The Town hasn't acted in good faith to meet its responsibilities under the Stipulation of Judgment.

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

                          Joel R. Anderson
