    I read the article about the new autism program that was started in New Hartford. Unfortunately this article is filled with lies. New Hartford was promising wonderful services to the two families remaining from the Shared Services Bridges 1 program that was asked to leave suddenly, but instead the town hired people who are unable to deliver the services needed. The Superintendent and Administrator both told the people what they wanted to hear, and now those families are left fighting to get back half of what they lost when the Bridges program left. Of course New Hartford left other students with no services either, and at the time a program without a home, that since has relocated to Winchester. What was a great deal for everybody was ended because the New Hartford Superintendent wants to own his own autism program just like he claims to own the town of New Hartford. What cost the New Hartford taxpayers just $34,000 is now costing them in excess of $90,000! Good move New Hartford!
