Greenfield Recorder My Turn: 
Bad faith negotiations undermined effort for schools

June 1, 2023 by Ginny Desorgher

When I became a city councilor, I never imagined it would be like this. Serving the community just felt like a good thing to do. I’ve lived in Greenfield for a long time and have come to know so many of its citizens over the years. It’s a place I have known and loved and am so honored to serve.

“To me, it’s very clear from the overwhelming response of the public that the mayor’s budget does not reflect the will of the community, ” Ways & Means Committee Chair Virginia “Ginny” DeSorgher said to fellow councilors at a recent committee meeting. “Working on the budget has been frustrating, with legal questions raised early in the week and financial information sent from the executive branch roughly 90 minutes before our deliberations were to start.”
