R'dam cops called to board meeting

"We are not responsible for each other's schedule and timing," said Town Board member Matthew Martin in response to public comments at the May 25 meeting.

DiLeva said she rushed through her engagement, where she made remarks, and was on her way to take part in the ambulance vote, but Diane Marco called her shortly before 8 p.m. to tell her the vote was done.

"I never heard (DiLeva) tell me she couldn't make it that night," said Del Gallo, which spurred Rhinesmith's comments.

DiLeva said she was not happy police were called.

"I just think it is a very sad situation," said DiLeva. "I was very disturbed; it is still disturbing."

She also said Del Gallo wasn't truthful about claiming she never told him she had a prior engagement ahead of time, however Rhinesmith shouldn't have called Del Gallo a colossal liar at the meeting.

"I'm sorry, he did lie," said DiLeva after the meeting.""
