I read, with much disgust, a letter to the editor in today’s Pottstown Mercury lambasting Jody Rhoads.
This is getting old folks.
1. Jody does not hate trees. He wants us to be responsible with trees. Trees have their place but not at the expense of taxpayers in this borough. Sorry if this does not compute.
2. Mr. Hylton, rules the Shade Tree Commission with an iron fist and is arbitrary in his treatment of taxpayers with tree problems. Trees are NOT more important than people. They are wonderful and I am glad we have so many BUT they should not present a hardship to homeowners. Trees do NOT pay taxes!!!!!!!!!
3. The Shade Tree Commission has entirely too much money and too much power to be controlled by Mr. Hylton. Until Jody came along, the rest of you were like bobble-head dolls and went along with whatever the Shade Tree Czar commanded from on high.
4. I believe this letter was “encouraged” as it smacks of a paid political announcement during campaign time. Frankly, I dislike paid political announcements.
A new day is dawning in Pottstown. Let the elected officials run this town and shut down these agenda lobbyists while there is still time!
