Opponents of Bouska lack integrity, sense

I had a thought as I read Orlan Love’s Jan. 14 story “Marion man battled a grizzly — and lived.”

Ed Wiseman’s (good name) deal with the bear is parallel to Mayor Allen Bouska’s problem with those who would waste tax dollars and belittle themselves in a bad decision to besmirch the office of mayor and the person who is and has done a great job in representing all Marion people.

Bouska has served his country in a command position, operated honest businesses and employed many young people in the process of his adding to the community of Marion for decades.

You have to wonder what Craig Adamson, Nick Glew, Charlie Kress, Kim Etzel and others, to include real estate agents, are trying to do to a city that I have called my hometown for more than 70 years.

Apparently they failed to use common sense or are unable to make wise decisions. Voters need to wake up about some of these folks and their group as soon as possible. Some of them need to resign from any office that requires some street sense or integrity.
