No Escape from Suffering in Leadership


Dear Editor,

Walt Gobel’s cleverly written letter pointing his finger at his neighbors makes one suffer the three pointing back at him.

Sorry Walt resigned his leadership as mayor. Apologies do not cost much. One’s faith in what’s right rather than who’s right is redeeming enough. All of us are given more Grace than we deserve.

Truth is – there is no escape from suffering in leadership except through suffering. It’s too bad unity suffers in a lack of transparency and trust in our council.
