In the wake of the municipal election and the re-election of the incumbent gang of 6, I have a question: How does mathematics relate to honesty?
A treehouse built by loving parents for a child with health issues is outlawed by the Township because it is three feet too tall and hence deemed a two-story building and therefore not allowed.
Athenery Development in Willoughby is a defacto five-storey building (where three stories are the official maximum) but is officially dubbed as three-storey because the two levels of above-ground parking does not count as two storeys (I assume they are officially deemed to be invisible).
The most charitable conclusion I can draw is that how you are treated by the Township is based on who you know.
Although I didn’t vote for him, I was impressed by our new mayor’s soft-spoken campaign. I hope he remembers how the gang of incumbents deserted him days before the election because they thought it was to their advantage. I hope he remembers how they all came running back on election night for the photo-op. I hope our mayor has the wisdom of Solomon, the hide of a rhino, the foresight of an eagle and the bravery of a helicopter pilot. I also hope that as a retired farmer and police officer that our mayor can see the true mathematics of honesty.
