Letter to the editor 7.25

Written by David Green.

A letter to the editor that appeared incomplete in this week's paper:


 Why are the Medina Township board members so wasteful with taxpayers’ money?

My son bought the farm with everything legal and all the paperwork done by FHA (the Federal government) after we went bankrupt and it was repossessed. He has paid taxes on it for over 20 years, including the house trailer that for the last three years they have taken him to court over twice, trying to make him remove.

After thousands of taxpayer dollars and thousands of dollars expense to him, the judge told them to stop wasting his time on such nonsense. So now he has been notified they are taking him to State Court in Lansing (more taxpayer money). It’s ironic, he is a taxpayer and is actually paying to sue himself.

Why make it harder? My son wants to know who is instigating this on the board, but no one will step up. Whoever you are, are you a God-fearing person or just a person who thinks you are God?
