|To the Editor: Walbridge resident applauds 4 council members|

The people of the Village of Walbridge voted in the mayor's election of 2011 and the majority of votes were not for this mayor. The votes were 40 percent for the mayor and 60 percent were split for the other two that were running for the position. So, he would not have to be resigning today because he would have never got elected.
Ohio law clearly said it requires people elected to boards to attend at least 60 percent of meetings in any two-year period. It is not the fault of the four members of council for following the law. There were council meetings missed, committee meetings missed, and special meetings missed.
Mayor, this is not a business but a village and nor were you the CEO, but just a mayor who wears a hat and can only vote when there is a tie. Now that four members of council wanted to take back the village from being run like a business and a CEO they were criticized by this mayor. Perhaps this mayor should have checked on the Ohio law before running again.
I love living in the Village of Walbridge and now that we have four council members ready to run this village in a forward motion I applaud them for their action.
Thank God there are laws that protect us tax payers from this kind of political behavior.
