The Beacon has asked C.O.R.D. to respond to the mayor’s open letter of last week and we thank Mr. Schaffner for the opportunity.
The mayor, as spokesman has reiterated his accomplishments thus far and we need to remind the mayor and council members that that is what they have been elected to do, that is their job – to run the city. Selling the citizens' parks is too big a decision for the mayor and 5 elected and appointed council members to make. This decision should be up to you. The mayor’s open letter used 700 words to tell you he does not want you to vote.
