In the past year alone, an angry patron has filed some half-dozen complaints with the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission in an ongoing personal battle with the Ansonia Public Library that began in 1975. One of Nicholas B. Wynnick's most recent complaints was dismissed in May; another in July resulted in a warning to the library to file the minutes of its board meetings promptly.
Since 1975, library Director Jean Whalen has filled six pendaflex folders with the disgruntled patron's complaints to the FOIC. The complaints often center on procedural matters related to library board meetings, which Wynnick attends with a tape recorder, according to Whalen.
