To the Editor:
Councilman (Davif) Kos is the only one who truly cares about the safety of our children.
I am writing to express my worry over what I consider to be the lack of many members of Avon Lake City Council’s concern for the safety of our children should the deer hunting ordinance pass. Many Avon Lake residents probably do not even know that Council is considering an ordinance that will, among other things, allow bow hunting in our city, including school grounds, daycare center property and senior center property, and will also allow sharpshooting in city parks.
I attended the Collective Committee Meeting on Nov. 15 and heard Councilman Kos request that Council include in the ordinance language that prohibits hunting on school and daycare property. I was horrified when Councilmembers Fenderbosch, Shondel, Bucci, James, and O’Donnell all voted against such language.
I simply cannot imagine the rationale for a refusal to take steps to ensure the safety of our children. Shame on these members of Council and I hope they no longer have their jobs come re-election.
