The Same William Tinsley?

Is this William Tinsley charged with 1 count of embezzlement and 1 count of petty larceny the same William Tinsley that was just elected as Brookfield’s First Selectman?  This was in 2012, don’t you think Brookfield should get an explanation from the First Selectman elect?  Seems to me it is a bit more serious than picking up a lawn sign.

By the way, this is Kathie Schilling posting from my husband's Patch account because my account has been suspended since I posted a question about Mr. Tinsley last week.

I must be psychic or something. Brookfield deserves better. Dump both petty thieves and keep the plumber.

THE MAN IN THE ARENA Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic" delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910 It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

This should have come out before the election. But remember everyone is innocent before being judged guilty.

From TinsleyFlynn.com: Tinsley added, “Marty Flynn and I are committed to improving our community quality of life. We will focus our efforts on the economic growth needed to support our community needs and projects. We will not mortgage our future with excessive debt and unfunded obligations. My First Selectman opponent, Democrat Howard Lasser, has a record of supporting long term debt financing to support short term operational needs, all while allowing unfunded obligations to grow at an alarming rate. His spend now, pay later ways, if continued, will have a very negative impact on our town’s financial health and quality of life”.
