The following letter was written and submitted to the Sun Messenger by Joe Liptow on October 31st, prior to the November 3rd election. He intended for it to be published in the November 5th edition after the election. The Sun Messenger chose not print the letter.
To the Sun Messenger :
Regardless of whether I won or lost this South Euclid Council election, I’d like you to know what I think before I roll up or roll down my political sleeves:
The Cedar Center project will cost us many millions for many more years. The Greenvale Drive demolition project is costing us tens of thousands each year. The Playground of Possibilities is a shell game with your money and an attempt to make political hay in the name of disabled children. The Mayor and other officials have repeatedly lied in public and on the record.
Whether Council President Moe Romeo made “honest” mistakes or outright lied in his fixed endorsement of my opponent is not what’s important. What is truly important is that we start to demand of our public servants, ethical behavior, financial transparency, greater service efforts and results. The X Amendment of the US Constitution gives the people power to make this happen. I suggest we get started soon. Call me!
Joe J. Liptow
