Your open letter to me in the May 27 Marco Eagle only verifies your very ill-conceived modus operandi. I am confident that the electorate on this island will eventually replace you with a true, humble leader who will serve the people.
In case you haven’t heard, seen, or read, millions of people have lost their jobs and more layoffs are yet to come. So, yes, Mr. Waldack, if I were fortunate enough to have a managerial job with the city, I definitely would give back the four percent salary raise. So many people are doing just that in thousands of communities throughout our country in order to keep their jobs and to show their appreciation that they are employed! As a retired Latin teacher/guidance counselor, I never earned a great salary, but I knew that I was making a difference for thousands of students and their parents during my 30-year career. Now, I am grateful for my part time job with a terrific property management company!
Since you are earning a salary to be on the City Council, why don’t you give back some of your salary to the city coffers? The majority of people on Marco are paying thousands of dollars in property taxes, out of control utility bills, etc. You are masterful, though, at your incredulous diatribe and trying to sound so intelligent and righteous. Enough is Enough, Mr. Waldack. Please resign.
Janet M. O’Connell
