Over the past few months numerous statements have made reference to the appearance of money missing within the town's finances. Although we personally find this extremely concerning, we also believe that everyone is entitled to the right of being innocent until proven guilty.
The statements made through the media and in open council meetings have been disturbing beyond belief. The comments and accusations should stop and the judicial system needs to be allowed to work as it is intended.
We have a municipal election coming on April 3 that is very important to the health of our town government and the community itself. We must all realize the board of trustees represents all of us and we need to vote for those who can best take the community into the future. Pointing fingers at current trustees and emotionally accusing without proper knowledge of all the facts does more damage than good.
Having been personally involved with town government and the current board members, we wish to take this opportunity to say "Thank you" to those trustees leaving the board. We do know how difficult a position you have been in. You deserve to hold your heads high and enjoy your evenings.
With that said, we strongly support Neal Schwieterman for the unopposed position of mayor and Ross King, Larry Wissbeck, Eric Goold and Amber Kleinman for trustee positions. We apologize to Bill Powers, but we simply have not had the pleasure of knowing him. Make sure you vote and make your vote from knowledge and common sense, not emotions. It is your community.
Ron and Deb Rowell
