A letter to the Northwest Herald from TP Mathews, reprinted with permission of the Wonder Lke man:
Consolidation NOT the Answer
After reading scores of articles during the last 2 years, I must ask if consolidation is really the answer.
It is obvious after 100 years of changes, plus the methods and demands of those changes; we only need to modify the Township structure…eliminating corruption.
Allegedly, you’d have the same people controlling the Township business to perpetuate a preexisting amount of corruption.
It’s not the Township structure that’s the problem, it’s the career politicians using questionable and ethical schemes to obtain an office and then maintain themselves and their friends in that office.
While some Township voters have been notably honest and productive in representing their fellow citizens, it is unfortunate that some have the characteristics of a sociopath and operate for the benefit of themselves, their friends at the expense of their fellow citizens.
Please acquaint yourself with the political process and environment to know the schemers and scammers from the hard-working honest citizens.
Know the facts and truth from the political hogwash promising something for nothing.
