Greenwich Parks & Rec Squabble Gets Nasty

The proposed appointment of Howard Stern’s radio sidekick Gary Dell' Abate , aka Baba Booey, to the Parks and Recreation Board has turned ugly.

RTM member Coline Jenkins, who has been critical of the appointment, showed up at Tuesday’s Appointment Committee meeting with a bag of fecal matter that she said was left in her mailbox by a Stern fan. It included a note reading, "Ha Ha!! U Stink!!! Go Howard," said Jenkins, a great-great granddaughter of suffragette Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Jenkins has objected to the portrayal of women on Stern’s radio show.

The meeting erupted in disbelief when Jenkins placed the bag on a lunch table in Town Hall. Jenkins disinfected the table afterward, the Greenwich Time reported. A call to Jenkins was not returned.

Dell'Abate, 49, has lived in Greenwich for more than 15 years and has two children in Greenwich public schools. He was nominated in January by a unanimous vote of the Board of Selectman. Dell'Abate needs a full vote from all 230 RTM members on March 14 to be appointed to the board.

Do you think it was necessary for Jenkins to bring the bag of fecal matter to the meeting? What is your opinion on Dell'Abate being appointed to the board? Share your thoughts below or on Facebook!
