Letter to the Editor:

First of all, I’d like to thank all of you kind enough to call, visit, send cards, and stop me on the street with encouragement after my resignation as Council President. It is very difficult to convey how profoundly disappointing it was for our group who envisioned a City government for the benefit of the people, only to have it hijacked by political manipulation and misguided decision making.

I stand by the decisions I made and the reasons for them, as I could never lower my ethics to be a part of misuse of public office. Hopefully, an audit by the State Auditor’s Office will set the record straight. As always, our group will continue to work diligently for significant issues that benefit Galion and its citizens.

The following is a verse all should strive to live by:

“The Face in the Glass”

When you get what you want in your struggle for self

And the world makes you king for a day,

Just go to a mirror and look at yourself

And see what THAT face has to say.

For it isn’t your father or mother or spouse

Whose judgment upon you must pass

The person whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the one staring back from the glass.

Some people might think you’re a straight-shooting chum

And call you a great gal or guy

But the face in the glass says you’re only a bum

If you can’t look it straight in the eye.

That’s the one you must please, never mind all the rest

That’s the one with you clear to the end.

And you know you have passed your most dangerous test

If the face in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years

And get pats on your back as you pass,

But your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you’ve cheated the face in the glass.

From The Spellbinder’s Gift by Og Mandino
