To the Editor:
We, the Ridgeville Concerned Citizens, hosted a Ridgeville Town Hall Meeting on October 22, 2013 at 7 p.m., 125 Schoolhouse Street, Ridgeville Town Hall.
Mayor and Council members are out of touch with the Citizens of Ridgeville. They refused to attend the meeting the citizens invited them to. It is clear the Mayor and council members do not care how the Voters and Citizens feel.
Mayor Williams controls Ridgeville even when it comes to announce the upcoming election for November 05, 2013.
He refused to publicized it in the paper. Not letting the voters know. By not informing the voters, he will stay in the Mayor position forever and Town Council Members doing what pleases them.
These are some of the questions we were concern in knowing; Town Ordnance is violated by the Mayor and council members and no one seem to care what is being done, as Government Officials.
Monies are not being classify in the right account such as traffic tickets, etc.. Why are elections not posted in the newspaper or notices made available, so voters can file?
Not informing the voters and the public, he will never be replaced because no one knows the open and closing of the filing dates. This type of scheme means Mayor Williams gets to spend the Taxpayers’ money the way he wants to.
At time the Council Members don’t know anything until it is spent.
Ridgeville Town received a $50,000 grant for Recreation, the voters and citizens do not want the Town of Ridgeville Government to misused the spending of this fund, as the Government Officials did in the past with other spending.
The Mayor of Ridgeville James Williams and The Town Council Members: Clarence Hughes, Lorraine C. Grant, newly elected Candidates did not show up, nor did the other two (2) Council Members: Joseph Peal and Nora Elaine Doctor, who were not candidates for the November 05, 2013 election.
By not showing up, it appears that they are running from facts.
