To the editor:

Winston Churchill once said, “The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it’s still on my list.”

Elected officials have a responsibility to act in a responsible manner as they carry out their duties as delineated in the city charter.

Recently, we have become aware of Alderwoman Fogle placing a frozen dead rat in the desk of one of her colleagues.

This was distasteful, unprofessional and certainly should be investigated by the recently appointed ethics committee. The image conveyed to the general public by this irresponsible, juvenile act under the guise of an April Fool’s joke makes the city look like a joke.

I wonder what’s really happening at One Locks Plaza. I attended the Common Council meeting and was distressed to hear that the supervisor of a former alderman who is now a city employee was reprimanded because he chose to voice his concerns during a public comment segment of the city Council meeting. The city employee has every right as a resident and taxpayer of the city to voice his concerns. Incidentally, he conducted himself in a gentlemanly fashion, which in my opinion is a good model for his supervisor and the elected officials to follow.

This is another instance of bullying and irresponsible acts by individuals in key positions that warrant investigation by the ethics committee.

People in this community need to get involved and be heard.

I write this with the utmost sincerity because of my love for the City of Lockport. I hope and pray that these matters are properly resolved for the good of all the people involved, and above all, for the good of the city.
