There is a lot of talk around town right now about council members and what their personal convictions are concerning Mike Rose and Washington Properties' development of Water Works Park. I would like to remind everyone that the elected representatives of Port Clinton are here to represent the people which they serve. Personal beliefs and interests of council members should have no part in making decisions and choices for Port Clinton residents.
We must all remember that city council members were elected to speak for the people and make decisions that represent those people. It is those who reside in Port Clinton whose interests and concerns are to be upheld and projected, not what a council member personally believes or feels is best. Let us remember we live within a Constitutional Republic and not an Oligarchy. Government serves to represent the people, not the personal beliefs and agendas of the few.
Thank you for your time,
