From Loretta Wuich, a regular attendee of Grafton Township meetings:
Is it worth the cost?
Yes, when the supervisor is allowed to do the job we have elected them to do, they can perform many benefits for the taxpayer.
But when you have a situation such as we have in Grafton Township that seems to grow bigger and uglier each month, it defeats the purpose of township government.
I have attended many meetings and witnessed the insults the trustees have directed toward the supervisor, but even worse are the insults made directly to some senior citizens in the taxpayer audience, who elected them but have the audacity to question some of their motives.
I know this for a fact as I was told to by the Trustees shut up or leave when I spoke during public comments and questioned some of their motives.
Also, to show the disdain he has for the audience, Trustee McMahon actually sits with his back to us at every meeting. How professional!
Should we reward this kind of behavior with our tax money?
Would you trust anyone like this with your money?
If at one meeting they would do something beneficial for taxpayers instead of doing their best to defeat the supervisor … yes it does give you pause to really consider abolishing township government.
It is time for township government to shape up and be good stewards of our money!
We can’t wait for the next election.
When will the responsible township officials and other local elected officials put some pressure on these Grafton Trustees to shape up?
Make no mistake, it is the trustees of Grafton Township
- creating the problems;
- fanning the flames of anger and distrust;
- costing every taxpayer in the township with their illegal actions and arrogance.
As a longtime observer of the antics of these trustees, I ask that as voters we remember these four trustees when they are up for election in 2013 and send them packing. They do a horrible disservice to all other townships that operate effectively and efficiently.
