Response to Mayor Brown

After reading our ex-mayor’s letting in The Beacon (July 17, 2014) I must say, I enjoyed it very much. May you continue to write letters to the editor. In today’s world, we hardly ever have anything to laugh about, but your letters are always a welcome sight when I read the sound offs.

I really had to laugh when you said “people of Port Clinton, we need to keep our children here with jobs.” What kind of jobs, Mr. Brown? Cleaning condos, mowing their grass, shoveling their snow? Are you really serious?

Even our mayor said “if those condos are only full three months a year, that’s okay”. Three months a year. Citizens, are you beginning to see flashing red lights?
