C.O.R.D. gathers required signatures for initiative ordinance

Citizens Organized for Responsible Development (C.O.R.D.) have gathered 280 signatures, more than the required 175, in support to put their initiative ordinance on the ballot for November. The petitions were handed over to Port Clinton City Auditor, Cole Hatfield, on Tuesday, June 24.

“According to Ohio law, I am to hold the petitions for ten days and then I am to submit a certified copy to the Board of Elections,” said City Auditor Hatfield. “The Board of Elections then examines the petition, checking signatures, which is protocol for every petition, and then a certified letter is sent to me stating the petition’s validity and the initiative will be put on the ballot in November.”

Meeting Mr. Rose

Last week a friend of mine, Grant McCallum, a small business owner from Marblehead, and I took the time to travel to Medina to meet personally with Mr. Mike Rose of Washington Properties. It is our opinion that Mr. Rose is one of the most professional and accomplished businessman we’ve ever met. Also, I found him to be one of the most pleasant and fair-minded businessmen that I’ve ever met in my fifty plus years of being in business.

Micropolitan Cities, as Mr. Rose describes them, are cities with less than 50,000 citizens. Medina and Wooster are considered Micropolitan Cities and have experienced significant improvement in their standards of living and also in attracting both small and large new businesses as a result of the vision, commitment and efforts put forth by the Washington Properties team.

Development survey

A survey was taken about Water Works Park. I’ve lived here my whole life and never heard of the survey. I’ve asked a lot of people and they didn’t get to see it either. Finally one person said it was on a computer, Facebook, etc. Not being a computer whiz, I didn’t even know about it, so that means I couldn’t vote! JUSTICE? Is this the way we are heading? Maybe a survey for ONLY the people in Port Clinton is the answer. Let’s be fair about this!
