This was posted on another topic on MUSA, but I didn't want it to be over looked and I also want to give people a chance to comment on it that might not be a full time member on the site.
So here you go:
In light of tonight’s council meeting I’d like to make a some observations about the last council meeting. You remember it don’t you? That’s the one where we were treated to the thunder, bellowing threats and rudeness of union members from outside the city.

We had the democrat socialist, from Dayton, who offered nothing pertinent to the issue but was just interested in speech making.

Then, there was the rude, obnoxious Mark Sanders. He thought it was necessary to leave Columbus and come to Middletown and tell us how wonderful he is. He said:

He was a professional firefighters representative for 10,000 firefighters in Ohio. He wasn’t very professional at the council meeting where he didn’t belong. He said he was in this business 30 years and was a lieutenant in Cincinnati. He tried to make a point of telling us that his age and years of experience gave him some right to insult us and our council. Well, a lot of us are older than he is and have a lot more experience than he does. So what? Then he told us about his father whom I’m sure would have been totally ashamed of the way he represented union employees that night.

He then launched into a personal attack on our councilman Josh Laubach.

"You haven’t taken the time to research…You’re dealing with professionals who do the research you don’t….People can think and discuss this in the proper arena. Not here!…..How you going to pass these levies?….. In Dayton the whole damned place about burned down (threateningly).

Well, Mr. Sanders you do more harm than good. Why don’t you stay home and mind your own business. Our local union representatives are as capable as you are and have handled things quite well for many years. Further, Mr. Laubach has done his homework and that’s why he presented the resolution. His research caused him to address the problem of a city on the way to bankruptcy. You never discussed that issue which is none of your business anyway. The council meeting by law is the proper arena for council members to discuss city business. You were wrong on that also. Who said there is going to be any more levies? Your wish for that is a joke in Middletown. Your going to have all you can handle in Columbus come January. Be sure and do your research and stay there.

John Harvey, Chief Schwarber and Chief Botts didn’t help their cause bringing outsiders in on this. John Harvey, as union president, is a courteous, reasonable, professional and tough negotiator. I have never known him not to be unreasonable except when he wouldn’t give me the endorsement for local office (Joke). All three of these men are reasonable. I’m sure something will be worked out to everyone’s best interests. But packing the house and throwing insults has turned many against your cause. It was an embarrassment to the city, council and the taxpayers.

Josh Laubach should have gotten more support from the other council members. But Mr. Laubach has demonstrated he is not afraid to walk alone for what he believes is right. He is a true leader. Other council members can learn from him.

The Mayor stated that the city had received about 200 emails on the matter. Only 15 were from people who lived in the city. Why don’t 15 or 20 of us who are on the side of Mr. Laubach send emails today and even things up so council will know there is support for continuing to address our city financial woes. That is the real issue here.

Thank you.

Paul Nagy
