Honor not deserved
By Bobbie McCreary

I, for one, am very uncomfortable with Mr. Shay's photo appearing on the wall of our Borough Assembly room- when I looked at it I saw the same picture I viewed on an online news site when the story broke.

To me the continued presence of this photo on this wall presumes we are forgiving of the unspeakable behavior of this individual by showing him as one of a legacy of revered community leaders. A criminal does not deserve this honor.
