By now, you've most likely heard about Mayor Gysberts' recent personal attack against myself as well as a Board of Education candidate.
I've spent a lot of today thinking on how to approach this topic. You see, when an elected official begins publicly attacking local residents, resorting to name calling and bashing, it's a sign of a serious problem. However, while this problem has manifested itself in the form of a personal attack, the underlying problem is not a personal attack at all - the personal attack is merely a symptom of the problem.
Before I continue, I'd like to share a letter which I received I sent in May, and the response I received from Mayor Gysberts.
