The following Letter to the Editor was submitted by Newtown Square resident Michael Wozniak.
Apathy is not working.
By not attending meetings and speaking up we have created a community where power and control reside in the hands of a few. At the , we were informed that our Police Chief was being paid off to keep his mouth shut regarding the details of his being terminated.
This did not appear to shock anyone...business as usual in the lowly depths of Newtown Square politics.
If we do not get involved soon, it may be too late. I do not have any answers. I only recently became involved in township matters when they attempted to shove a zoning change down my throat.
We have created an environment where the individuals in control feel very comfortable acting according to their plan without regard to the people they affect. Even in the hands of the most competent, intelligent and well-meaning individuals, this is bad government.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas. Maybe together we can make adifference. I hope the next time I leave a township meeting I will leave with more answers than questions.
