In reference to the Wed., Nov. 2 issue in The Advertiser, Michael Clinesmith is a very misguided person. He has not been doing his job. He lies to our residents, makes accusations that have no facts to back up, lies to the Board of Trustees and holds on to information meant for the Board’s review. He takes credit for projects that others do and then whines to the Board. He works eight hours a week and wants a raise each year. He tells a story but never gives all the facts, just the part he wants to share. Board meetings have been a joke, he holds them up with his note taking, working for his own agenda to make others look bad. Mike has been spreading lies about Bob Forbes and myself which shows he is childish. This being a presidential election, he has chosen not to be available to collect voter ballots. He has called police on myself for helping a resident turn in their ballot. I put it in Mike’s in-box. He has called police out two times on the supervisor, once for swearing which Mike’s dad provoked him and second time for not securing two ballots dropped off at 10:00, Mike was called so he could come and put them in his office. He chose not to come to the hall for five hours. In the meantime, he called the police who arrived after Mike did. This was a waste of Twp and county money.
Mike speaks about violations that the supervisor apparently made. These matters were checked on with the attorney, county clerk, MTA and all have said there were no laws broken.
Mike wants everyone else to do his work. This has to stop. He is the only clerk ever to get this much money for a deputy. I know because I was his deputy for two years. Mike doesn’t work with others. Do we want this type of person on the twp board? I would think not. Please don’t re-elect him.
