To the editor:
I read your defense and position letters about the town of Sunset Beach and Mayor Rich Cerrato. Thanks for the fair and balanced approach.
Rich is a serious case of contradictions, yet he provides relief to those of us who get fed up with the “business as usual” attitude of most politicians.
One example is the pothole stonewall put up by the town board. The roads become the town’s roads once they annex a subdivision or a street of homes and acquire the tax base. To deny responsibility and cite outdated policy is sad.
Worse yet is the excuse, “What would we say to citizens that paid to raise the quality of their roads in the past?”
Rich knows this is wrong and unjust but has no leverage with the council to correct it. It is not a Holy Grail that prevents council from correcting a bad policy. All it takes is a few lines added to existing town rules.
