Letter to the Editor
Reader wants supervisor to lay out all his cards

November 30, 2011

Dear Editor,

In regards to your story, "Competing Clarks," Nov. 23, we have to question Supervisor Wagner's comment that the appointment of Bart Clark as superintendent is "pathetic" and "It has nothing to do with the good of the township."

We would like Mr. Wagner to explain his rationale for appointing Mike Clark, and how doing so was "for the good of the township"?

Mr. Wagner surely must realize that appointing someone "who is willing to go in and check on stuff and keep him informed and let him know what's going on in his absence" requires due diligence.

After all, he wouldn't want to appoint somebody that was "pathetic" or "not for the good of the township" would he?

Unlike the board, Mr. Wagner made his decision behind closed doors and without public scrutiny. We think it's time Mr. Wagner share with taxpayers all of the background information that led to his decision.

We find his actions cowardly, vindictive, and a total disregard for what is best for our township. The board should immediately rescind it's offer of lifetime healthcare to Mr. Wagner and vote down lifetime healthcare to all present and future elected officials.

Mr. Wagner's actions prove that offering retirement benefit packages to elected officials hasn't attracted the "quality individuals" they were suppose to attract.

Sincerely,

Michael & Lori Powell

Independence Township
