Fighting cronyism

To the Editor:

As a resident of Lakewood and Grafton Township, I have followed the news accounts of conflict between the Grafton board and the supervisor, Linda Moore.

I believe Moore has been trying to fight cronyism, resulting in waste and overspending by the board, while she has tried to hold the line on taxes. Moore is a rare elected official who wants to reduce the costs of operating the township while holding the line on taxes. I am on a fixed income and can’t afford more taxes.

The trustees forced Moore to go to court just so she could fulfill her duties. The resulting legal bill cost nearly $500,000. It was a tragic waste of resources, all for naught.

Let’s keep the only choice for lower taxes in office. I am urging the re-election of Linda Moore for Grafton Township supervisor.
