Math questions for new mayor
Editor: In the wake of the municipal election and the re-election of the incumbent gang of six, I have a question. How does mathematics relate to honesty?
A treehouse built by loving parents for a child with health issues is outlawed by the Township because it is three feet too tall and hence deemed a two-storey building. and therefore not allowed.
Athenry Development in Willoughby is building a de facto five-storey building (where three stories are the official maximum). It is officially dubbed as three-storey because the two-level above-ground parking does not count. I assume they are officially deemed to be invisible.
The most charitable conclusion I can draw is that how you are treated by the Township is based on whom you know.
Although I didn’t vote for him, I was impressed by our new mayor’s soft-spoken campaign. I hope he remembers how the gang of incumbents deserted him days before the election, because they thought it was to their advantage.
I hope he remembers how they all came running back on election night for the photo-op.
I hope our mayor has the wisdom of Solomon, the hide of a rhino, the foresight of an eagle and the fortitude of a helicopter pilot. I also hope that as a retired farmer and police officer, our mayor can see the true mathematics of honesty.
