Response to Uncutani

I know you and Leetee probably love the zoo more than I do. It used to be one of my favorite places to go when I was little.

I have nothing against the Zoo as an organization. I feel they have cleaned themselves up over the years and become more aware and responsive to economical and sociological changes which is intrical to their continued success.

My frustration and subsequent rant lies in my personal belief that good leaders do not run when the going gets tough. Fernandez, while having done a great job before the funding crisis (which is not her fault), made a decision to save herself first and leave the zoo to just hang... What kind of dedicated, responsible, devoted leader does that?

Ani... I think Buffalo has one of the greatest concentrations of arts and culture in this region, but I cannot bring myself to support a leader who leaves at the first sign of danger, who puts herself first after publically announcing her devotion and dedication to the organization she was chosen to lead and lauded for her previous success and present momentum.

Can we afford to have her leave again when there is a threat of financial or other danger?

Donna Fernandes--You COWARD!

Anyone see the article on the front page of the News today?

I cannot believe that Donna Fernandes is coming back to the zoo after she ran from Buffalo when the budget crisis was just coming to head.

From what I want to take from the News article, the only reason Fernandes wants to come back is 1. the elections are over and the zoo is still funded 2. she misses buffalo.

I wish I had a copy of the articles that were printed when Fernandes left buffalo as quickly as possible. She could have cared less about what happened to the zoo or Erie county for that matter.

What's worse is that the board of directors and the citizens of this pathetic county are letting her come back! Why? She really should be embarrassed.

I couldn't believe the article when I read it. I hope I run into her at Wegmans some time so I can call her a coward to her face.
