City left in a lurch

Editor:
I felt compelled to respond to Mr. Koske’s article in last week’s Beacon. He stated that the voters passed a charter amendment that said a candidate must file an acceptance letter with the city clerk.

What Koske did not mention was that the language in question did not appear on the ballot, nor on the referendum question mailed to the voters in Madeira Beach for the 2004 election. So the voters never saw the language they voted on.

Interestingly enough, no one in city hall knew of the two-line insertion. Even election officials ask what is that doing in our charter. Funny that only the candidates Koske supports knew of its existence.

Why should anyone feel that Koske’s comments should carry any weight? Even among his own supporters, he is known as a quitter. When things did not go his way on a vote, he quit his job as a city commissioner, leaving the city in a lurch. While serving in office, Koske supported self-interest groups, not the citizens of Madeira Beach. Mayor Parker and Art Thomas are not quitters. They are both individuals of good character, and if elected, will serve the citizens of Madeira Beach well.
