At the March 4 Swansea Village meeting, Committee President Susan Schultz was asked if she thought her "In Your Corner" babble, which appeared in the February Swansea Report, was politicking. The mayor and Schultz quickly tried to suppress the question asked by an attending resident. In their minds and with backing by the rest of the trustees (two of them are not returning), all thought it was OK.
I read the column many times over/ And I thought it indeed had a political slant.
Her opening sentence was already a falsehood. Schultz makes you think she was an elected official. In fact she was never elected but appointed by the mayor to fill the remaining two years of the trustee who resigned. Schultz then in the second paragraph reminds readers that "like-minded officials" is what our community needs. This sure sounds like politicking to me.
I thought the "In Your Corner" was an attempt by the mayor for people to get to know their elected officials, not pressure people to get out the vote.
If you agree, please send village officials especially the mayor your comments. The mayor claims no one complained to him.
